I have a 96 ford 7.3 Diesel that wont start. Changed fuel filter after I ran out of fuel in back tank. I didn't switch the tanks after fueling. It was running afterwards but never seem to run normal. I never blead the injectors. Could air still be in the system?

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 anywhere..so if the filter is empty, fill it before installing it...saves on the starter getting hot...in 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...

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.

I have a 1988 Ford F250 with the 460 engine and duel tanks it is factory fuel injected.....the front tank ran out of gas so I switched it to the rear tank( the same as many times before) the truck died and...


The fuel pump relay and the oil pressure switch as well. The oil pressure switch runs power to the fuel pump when you first start it
When the oil pressure reaches operating range the relay takes over
They are both inexpensive so replace both of these parts to be safe and kill two birds with one stone. If one goes out the other will soon enough

My son ran my truck out of gas. Its a 1988 F250


first, is this a diesel? if it is there is a line or oring loose allowing it to **** air--diesels dont like leaks like that and there is a whole procedure for voiding the air from the lines on diesels. next could be the in tank pump and also does it have duel tanks? does the duel tank switch work? running out of fuel with in tank pumps can burn up the pump (the fuel itself provides lubrication and cooling for the pump, gas or diesel) and of course check the filter, running out and refilling could have disturbed trash in the tank

7.3 V8 DIESEL RAN OUT OF FUEL WILL NOT START


When you get some fuel you can unscrew the fuel filter and fill it with diesel. Then put the filter back on without spilling the fuel.

There should be enough diesel to prime the motor and get rid of the airlock. Also with diesels make sure you are using the correct tank if you have a tank switch.

Ford fusion 1.4 tdci will not start unless the hand pump is used


HAVE YOU CHECKED THE FUEL LINES WHERE THE FUEL PRIMING PUMP IS CONNECTED FOR ANY CHAFFING THEY ARE COMMON FOR CHAFFING BESIDE THE FUEL FILTER WHICH WOULD EXPLAIN WHY FUEL IS RETURNING TO FUEL TANK.

Is their a fuel pump in tank of E350 7.3 diesel 1988 ford ?


my guess is there is a fuel pump in tank as there are in 95% of diesel motor vehicles. you may have just sucked out the existing fuel from the lines. the fuel pump can withstand high amounts of amperage and voltage so by hooking up wires wrong i dont think you burned up the pump but you may have wired it up wrongly, or you have forgot to put the o rings back inthe housing properly. or drop on in tank. check the fel system setup. Orings in place, wiring connected properly. if all else fails give the pump a hit and see if it will start.

1994 F350 WILL NOT START


you simply have to bleed the fuel lines...

to do that just loose up the line and have someone rotate the engine until you have some fuel going there...

make sure that your fuel filter is full because you will do this for nothing...

it should only take like 5 minutes of bleeding...
