Is it dual tanks? it could be in the switch if it is, most of the time it is bad grounds to the tank unit. grounding the wire from the sending unit to the gauge should make it move, one way or the other

2003 f250 6.0diesel will not start has fuel at fuel filterwill try to run on starting fluidwith interminent spray


fuel at fuel filter doesnt mean its getting the correct pressure to operate the injectors. do not spray starting fluid into a diesel motor, you will damage the rings, score cylinder walls, burn valve guides... etc . starting fluid is not designed for diesel engines. the only way to test the fuel system is to test it by hooking up a pressure test gauge to the service port. the next most likely issue would be a faulty glow plug relay or 1 or 2 faulty glow plugs.

Ford fiesta diesel endura turn's over & try's


Normally, only 2 things stop a diesel from firing:
1. no fuel
2. not enough compression

No fuel can be caused by (obviously no fuel) or a failed fuel pump. To test, have someone turn the engine over and then sniff at the exhaust - does it smell of unburned diesel? (If you've run out of diesel recently, you may have an airlock in the system, this needs bleeding out.)

Not enough compression needs specialised equipment to test - that's a garage job.
