2008 F250 Super Duty. Having difficulty removing air from fuel system

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Diesel. Does not start at all. Pickup screen broke off fuel pickup line in tank causing me to run out of fuel. Replaced pickup screen in tank and both fuel filters but now cant get vehicle to start

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F-250 Super Duty yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, repairing myself. Bled air with the shrader valve and also the banjo fitting on the fuel cooler numerous times. Did get truck to start once and it idled for 30 min. Oncei shut it off I'm back to the same no start

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That should be it

No, there is only one that is easily accessible and I hadn’t seen anything online that indicated to try that! From my past experience it was always to crack all them!
Ford Mechanic: 6Bucs, Ford Senior Master replied 3 months ago
Try that because it is an effective way of getting air out of the fuel system. This will help determine if you have sufficient, clean fuel through the high pressure pump. If you have a fuel pressure gauge it would be a good idea to try to get a reading as well

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
