    What exactly is the problem????? If you are just worried about restarted the truck due to your recent debacle, simply replace the wet air filter, top off the coolant reservoir to the proper level and give 'er a go.

SOURCE: ran out of fuel, need to bleed fuel system and

This can be a very tough thing to do and especially if you're by yourself.
You do not mention if the vehicle is now running? If the vehicle isn't running you will need to have a fully charged battery. With a charged battery turn the key one and open the fuel rail pressure release valve which you will allow to flow for about 4 -5 seconds with fuel. If you get some fuel mixed with air coming from the bleeder valve it is what you should get.

If you get only air with the fuel pump running then allow it to 'bleed' air until you get fuel. Once you get a fairly steady stream of fuel shut off the valve and attempt to start the vehicle. Once the vehicle starts you will want to bleed the fuel after a few minutes.

I want to have you try starter fluid CAREFULLY first as most smaller vehicles will recover from running out of fuel without having to bleed the air out. They will many times resolve the problem from just running about 20 minutes or so. Please consult your handbook before attempting this.
AGAIN - It is BEST to have two people just in case of fire. A GOOD fire extinguisher is best.

Best of it - hope you get it running quick.

SOURCE: my ford p100 turbo diesel 1993 runs well on tick

Check all turbo hoses first for splits etc. It's best to remove each one for a thorough inspection. If they are all ok you need to locate the small rubber hose that goes to the top of the injection pump. Check it. It's probably split somewhere. this ups the fueling when on boost. If its not intact you will have very little power.

SOURCE: Ford F250 turbo diesel cut out and died as left

if you have the 6.0 then the filters are located on top on the motor right beside your oil filter and under the drivers side on the fuel pump, check to see if you have diesel in your bowl where the fuel filter is, no diesel in there your fuel pump might be dead, check fuses to fuel pump and check relay on the passengers side kicker panel, check your owners manual

85% of the diesel engine problem is the fuel system. and rest 15%, if met, is a major problem. you have to check the filter. and make the fuel line solid. means no air in the system.

I was driveing down the road an my truckwhich is a 1999 dodge ram3/4 ton with the cummins turbo in it started spitting an spuddering an then died. the codes from a cheap scan tool showed p0216,p1690 and...

The p1690 is the transfer pump code I believe. Unfortunately the engine will run without a good transfer pump for awhile. Eventually the main injection pump will fail due to lack of fuel pressure. The main injection pump requires 6 psi minimum. When the main pump fails and this is the unfortunate part it's trash. It is possible you just lost enough fuel psi that it died and a 160 dollar lift pump will fix you up. I would suggest a fuel psi gauge on all 98 and a half through 2002 dodge diesels. A 80 dollar gauge can save you about 1800 dollars and that 1800 is if you do it yourself.

I bought some diesel but got gas !

This is NOT good! You can try bleeding the fuel system first. More than likely, air is trapped in the fuel lines, injector, and injector lines. Bleed at the fuel pump, (On the fuel pump to injector pump side), then the injector pump, then each line.

(You have to loosen the fitting to each line to each part, then when the air is bled out, and fuel comes through steadily, close it)

I also suggest an attorney to resolve the problem, as there may be damage. Pistons could have holes in them. Do a compression check.

Usually diesel's have 16:1 ratio compression. Today's gasoline engines have anywhere from 8:1, to 8.5:1, to maybe 9.0:1, (Maybe)

I'm willing to bet though, that you just have air in the system, and it needs to be fully bled out.
There is NO half stepping on this!
You have to start at the source, loosen each fitting, bleed the air out, and continue on down the line.

95 Aurora, Stalling while driving anyone know why?

i had the same problem with a little more symptoms, that you have reported.
i found that there was a recall on he fuel line. the stainless steal line wares down and begins to leak. This issue affects the oil pressure and causes the car to stall.

Cavalier dies

you need to find the fuel pressure release around the fuel rail press the little tab when the car dies. If there is no fuel coming out from that point, your fuel pump is going.
