2006 Dully ran out of Deisel but now can not get it

Customer Question

2006 Dully ran out of Deisel but now can not get it restarted. I put 10.00 worth of deisel back into tank however still will not start. Does it have an electric pump to pump deisel back through the system?
JA: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?
Customer: brand new turns over fine but just will not start. I remember back in the day day you had to prime the system but I figured since its a 2006 it should have an automatic priming system on it
JA: What is the model of your '06 Ford?
Customer: F350 2006 Dulley truck
JA: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes, becasue I'm very well machanical inclinde but this has me puzzled. I put 12.00 worth of deisel back into tank so that the pump will pump deisel back through the lines however it just has not started yet
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

$12 of diesel may not be enough. Yes you have to prime the system again. Remove the fuel filters (one on top of engine and the one under the truck) and fill them up, then put back on. A lot of times you don't have to do the one under the truck if you follow this step. Remove the filter cap for the fuel filter under the hood. Then turn the key on a couple times and let the pump prime the filter under the truck. Watch the filter bowl fill up under the hood. Then top off the filter under the hood with fuel and put the filter cap back on. Then crank it and attempt to restart it. It does a take a little bit to prime these engines. Once you get the filter under the hood to prime up with the cap off, it will self prime itself from there.
