Crack the line loose at injector pump and pressurize the tank to force fuel through the line and forcing out the air. Or same method can be done on the fuel rails.

Diesel pump bleeding

First off you need a good battery or jumper leads as it takes a bit of cranking. You usually don't have to do it at the pump you crack it were the hard line goes into the injector. Back that nut of just enough that you can wriggle the hard line just a little. Then crank the motor over until you see that there are no air bubbles coming out with the fuel. Then tighten the nut while still cranking, after a couple have been bleed the engine will try to run. After the engine is running repeat the bleeding process to each injector again. It does help if you can hook you some low pressure air to the fuel tank and make sure that the fuel has reached the filter and pump before you start.

2004 ford f350 diesel starting problems fuel guage reads empty tank is full

crack open an injector line and look for fuel at that point if no fuel there, take off oil filtertype fuel filter and look to see if it has fuel in it..we had a ford f650 superduty that a driver ran empty and were forever bleeding att hthe air out of the system to restart it..on diesels the system can have no air in the lines if the filter is empty, fill it before installing it...saves on the starter getting extreme cases you can pump pressure into the tank up to 20 psi and force fuel up front be careful on plastic tanks though...good luck and repost please...

Diesel 1989 F-250 set too long and will roll over

You may have to bleed the fuel system. There may be a very small air leak in the fuel supply line and after a long time idle, the fuel seeps bac into the tank, leaving an air lock in the pipe. When you go to start, this air makes its way into your injection pump & needs to be bled out before the engine will start. Begin from your fuel filter bleed valve, next the injection pump using the primer pump to transfer the fuel. Next loosen off the injector pipes and crank the engine over until fuel sprays form all the joints. Tighten injector pipes and start. It may run a bit rough for to begin with, but will soon even out. If it doesn't start, repeat bleeding of injectors.

Ran out of diesel and filled it again cant get it started


You have to bleed the diesel from the injectors, however diesel forced out of an injector can go through the skin and could prove to be fatal so great care should be taken.
