getting back into a ford!! starting problems

ok so finally back into a ford duramax was ffun and fast just missed ford, so i bought a wrecked 6 liter from my god father he hit black ice ended up rolling truck on left side, he physically had to shut truck off with key after about 10 seconds of running, oil even came through air intake, now the oil was a quart low so topped off and cranks mint, however i think there must be an air pocket in fuel line?? and i dont have any dash display even with key on? let me know if you guys have any ideas

Long shot but maybe there is a fuel pump safety valve or something that will shut off the pump if turned over.

Secondary filter is on top of the engine towards the front, right next to the oil filter. Probably the only thing on the engine that's easy to get to. It's the black cap with a 1/2 socket hole in the middle. Be careful taking it off, it's easy to crack the cap.

Primary is underneath, on the frame rail under the driver's seat.

I am thinking that the inertial fuel pump shutoff switch has been tripped. Even if the fuel pump has been shut off, it will still run for a few minutes with 0psi fuel pressure. Don't expect to do any burnouts with 0 fuel pressure, but it can idle a little bit. However, if you shut it down, don't expect it to re-start with 0 fuel pressure.

The inertial fuel pump shut off switch is located in the passenger side kick panel. You can remove the panel, or get some one with small hands to reset it for you. It has a round red button inside a sleeve. Press the red part till it clicks back into position.
