What is the procedure for bleeding the fuel system on a 1999 ford 7.3 liter diesel ?


NO, leave the drain closed. Loosen the top of the filter housing and spin the engine until raw fuel flows out. then tighten cover and away you go.

How do i change the fuel filter on a 1992 Ford F 250 7.3 Liter diesel.


fuel filter problems come in slowly as in loss of power. It it just died and will not start I would be looking elsewhere for the problem. A good place to start would be the fault codes to check for cam/crank position sensor faults, immobiliser operation,timing belt condition. If you ran the fuel too low it may have air in the system that will have to be bled out. Best have an accredited diesel shop specialist look at it.

Fuel filter replacement 7.3 liter diesel


I'm not too uppety-up on diesels but I have changed a few. My description is pretty basic.
BEFORE doing anything, make sure you have at least a quart (or more) of FRESH CLEAN diesel in separate container.
Locating the filter is usually in site when opening hood and fairly easy to get to. The ones I've done, look simular to a spin on oil filter. Usually there is a valve on the bottom to drain fuel and/or water out out of the filter.
First, drain fuel out of filter,may need a hose and a catch pan so is not to make too much of a mess.
Second, spin old filter off.
Third, take your fresh clean diesel and pour it in the new filter up to being full but not running over, make sure you wet the o-ring with clean diesel also.
Fourth, spin new filter in place.
Fifth, turn ignition key to on for at least 10 seconds or more, NOT starting the engine. You should hear a pulsing sound, that's the pump priming the new filter, can't have any trapped air in system. If there is too much trapped air the engined will not start or stay running. This has worked for me quite a few times but if you want more information go to http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/index.php and put your question in the search box in the forums section. Hope this helps.

We have a 1999 F-350 7.3 desil Truck that can only be started with starting fluid. Once started it spits and sputters. We have replaced the fuel pump and filter and the engine possitioning sensor. We also...


Hm. it's a Diesel. So, it uses glow plugs.
Diesel engines work on the principle of exploding diesel fuel vs. burning gasoline fuel.

If it is spitting and sputtering, there is a possible problem with the fuel that is in the tank.

You see, Diesel fuel, according to Wikipedia, changes its formula drastically from winter to summer to work best in winter or summer climates.

I would drain the Diesel out of the tank and replace with fresh Diesel from your local Diesel Fueling station.

If this doesn't work, then, you may have a sensor gone awry or a compression issue.

Good luck on this one.

I have a ford focus 1.8 diesel x reg 1999 girlfreind put petrol in it about 3weeks ago we have drained it all re fueled it and it started and run but now it wount start


poss the fuel filter has petrol in it,replace filter,turn engine over with fuel line unattached to clear lines then fire up,should be fine.you may hve a hot start problem for awhile but fill up with diesel at 1/2 tank to dilute any petrol left.in 32 years in the trade i have put petrol in so many diesel cars,and as long as it starts,keep it running,and start only when cold ish.
