You don't. You just crank the engine until it starts. Modern vehicles work on a pressurised system with a return back to the tank. The fuel is pumped from the tank to the injectors and excess fuel is returned to the tank.
your diesel engine should have a center bolt holding fuel filter it in place.you place drain pan under fuel filter when you remove top center bolt while holding fuel filter then remove old fuel filter then take new fuel filter add few ounces clean diesel fuel in new fuel filter lubricate gasket new fuel filter cartridge then install new filter crank engine check for leaks.
YOU STATED YOU CHECKED YOUR FUEL FILTER. YOU CAN'T JUST LOOK AT IT. DIESELS REQUIRE FUEL ON DEMAND. IF YOUR FUEL FILTER IS NOT FLOWING THE REQUIRED AMOUNT OF FUEL YOU WILL NOT GET THE PERFORMANCE FROM IT. THERE HAS TO BE A FUEL RESTRICTION THERE SOMEWHERE. CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER OUT WITH A NEW GOOD QUALITY FILTER. ON CAT DIESEL ENGINES A CAT PRIMARY FUEL FILTER WILL OUT FLOW A GENERIC FUEL FILTER EVERY TIME. TRUST ME, YOU HAVE A FUEL RESTRICTION PROBLEM. YOU GOT TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR FUEL TANK AND SUCKED UP SOME GARBAGE TO FINISH THE FILTER OFF. FUEL FILTERS IN DIESELS SHOULD BE CHANGED EVERY 15,000 MILES AT MINIMUM. I RECOMMEND EVERY 10,000 TO KEEP PERFORMANCE AT PEAK LEVELS.
i had the same problem with my f250 diesel, i had got all the filters changed, and it still came on, the drain plug was stripped so i took it to a dealer, they ordered a new housing and gasket, and i niticed they changed the wiring harness for it, was an updated one , so i suspect you need to replace the harness , aprox 30 bucks, and the housing was aprox 220 dollars if it needs replacing.
My son in law had exactly the same problem, he called out his roadside assistance, what the did was to take him to a garage, they used a small pump with a pipe to get down into his fuel tank thro' the filler, pumped it all out and refilled with diesel, they may also have changed his fuel filter, no problem. jonbangor
