ran out of fuel; no won't start
I lost track of how much fuel I had (broken fuel gauge) and the truck stuttered and the died on me. I barely got it back up my driveway. It's a '99 7.3.
I put 5 gallons in, cycled the ignition to get fuel running in the lines again but the truck won't start. It turns over but it never starts. I checked the fuel bowl and opened the yellow lever and could see fuel dumping out. I also cycled the ignition about 30 times before trying to start it. For a while, I thought I was hearing bubbles or glugging while the fuel pump was running. Do you think I have air in my lines? Is there a valve that I can use to purge it?
