How to bleed the fuel system in the 2009 Mondeo after changing the fuel filter on a diesel


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.

Is there a fuel pump reset on a 01 TDI jetta ? I ran out of diesel AMD now it won't start


When diesels run out of fuel they fill the lines with air. To get it to start you have to bleed the air out of the system starting at the fuel filter pump and any where else there is a bleed screw. IF you have or can get your hands on a owners manual or a work shop manual for your car then the process and location of bleeders will be explained.

I have a 2002 diesel jetta. I started having


bleed your fuel system. There is usually a bleeder valve on the fuel filter or somewhere round there. You can also disconnect the fuel supply line from the cylinder and try starting until fuel starts flowing out. The glow plugs which serve the same purpose as spark plugs in a gas vehicle need to be replaced. This should fix the problem.

My Audi A4 2000 TDI year 2005 has run on two tanks of Bio fuel recently and it hasn't recovered... started stuttering. Fuel system has been flushed out, air flow mand air flow meter has been changed but...


Audi 1.9 TDI and 2.0 TDI engines with pump-nozzle injection system, (year 2005 included), don't have permission to run with Bio fuel !!!
First you must replace fuel filter, interflow a quality Diesel additive (for 60 liters Diesel fuel dosage) fill up tank with Diesel fuel and run at least 300 km on highway at 3000-3500 rpm in 4-th gear.
I recommend you Foerch Diesel Reiniger System additive! I use this additive from 3 years ago and is certified on Audi TDI engines!

After replacing fuel pump and filt truck wont start with started fuid


If this is a diesel you should not use starter fluid unless the glow plugs and glow plug controller is removed. If this is a diesel you most likely have air in the fuel system.When changing fuel filter on a diesel fill the filter container with clean diesel,screw the top of the fuel filter canister on open the bleed screw and turn the engine over until only clear fuel (no air bubbles)is bled from fuel system. Then you may have to turn loose the connector on the innjectors to bleed more air out of the fuel system.

Hi Wendy

Did it do this before you changed the filter ?

If no, suspect you have an air lock in the fuel injection system.

Simplest way for you to eliminate it, is to undo each of the 4 injector feed pipe nuts, half a turn, whilst the engine is running, at approx 1OOO RPM, the air will be forced out along with a squirt of diesel, and you should be back to normal.

Good Luck !

Let me know how you get on.

John.

The injector system itself has air in it as well.It has to bleed out was what I was told when I ran my Scirroco out of fuel one time.
