Not Starting

You should need go empty on a diesel. You will need to bleed the system for it to start. Some do it on their own from simply cranking. You might try a couple of shots of starting fluid in the air intake. First remove the air filter. The speed of the engine turning runs a fuel pump that pushes the fuel to the injectors.

Changed fuel filters in 6.0L ford diesel. now it wont start.

the filters need to be pumped with fuel, should show you hoe in the owners manual; empty filters cause the same effect as running out of diesel.

6.5 tubbo diesel died and wont start back

Sounds like the fuel pump got air in the system. You may have to bleed out the air. Then it will run. Check the fuel tank for fuel first.
