The system needs to be primed and air bleed from it. locate if you can the fuel filter and priming pump assembly (if equiped) there should be an air bleed screw on it open the screw a few turns and pump the plunger on pump assembly till a stedy stream of air free fuel comes true, close screw and try starting.note. some systems have an electric priming system wich comes on with the ignition, try turning the ignition on engine not running for a few seconds(30) then try starting

Sorry.I am not sure on your model but.If you run a diesel out of fuel,it needs to have the fuel system bled.In the book it will say how.Most common is a bleed valve.Sorry I could not help you more on your car but someone from fixya will..I just wanted to tell you what needs to be done.Sorry I could not help you straight up but wanted to tell you what is needed for your vehicle.Thanks

Need help finding fuel pump on 1967 mercedes benz 200 diesel plus what to do when ran out of diesel for two years


Start by checking for fuel delivery. I would disconnect the fuel line to the #1 injector (just loosen it) and see if you get fuel when cranking, There is a primer pump to get the fuel up to the filter. make sure the filter is full of fuel.

Start at the injectors and work back until you find the problem.

Diesel 6 0l


Every diesel has an electric solenoid that shuts the fuel off when you turn the key off. I suspect that is your problem but I don't know where it is exactly on a Ford. It should be mounted on or near the injector pump.

I have the same problem.


I would suggest a glow plug issue or the unit/relay that heats them up. If the glowplugs dont get preheated enough a diesel is very hard to start and may run poorly until it gets up to temperature.

Fuel pressure could be it but if it ran fan when you picked it up I would doubt it. You may want to change the fuel filter as some debris may have been knocked loose in the whole process.
