Find the fuel pump, it should have a little pump on it that you use. if there is one then you should do that for about 5 minutes and then give it a shot. if not then you can try filling the filter with deisel and refitting it.

Can you hear the fuel pump run when you turn the key on?
Turn the ignition switch on/off five times to pressurize system.
The pump should humm a few seconds then cut off. Check the fuel pressure regulator? Remove or loosen the fuel line and see if you are getting fuel to and through the new filter. If your vehicle was running before you replaced the filter you shouldnt have to bleed any air out of it.
Good luck...i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.

05 f-250 will not start

I sometimes get an air lock. Loosen the cap on the filter housing on top of the engine. You may hear a hissing noise that sounds like air escaping. When you have the cap off turn the key on for a few seconds.( DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE) This will fill the fuel bowl. Put the lid back on and try to start again. You may have to do this a couple times but it does get air locked at times. Wash off the excess fuel that may splash out before starting the engine.
