please hlelp, wont start

2008, f-250, 108k

took the truck to local lube shop today to have the fuel filters changed. now it wont start.

they believe it is due to leaking fuel/water drain leaking.

I had it towed home. I removed the fuel/water seperator on the pump and found a torn O ring. that is simple.

I tried to remove the side cover on pump, because the filter housing is full of crap "a black pasty/sandy substance" and needs cleaning. I can not figure out how to remove the lines. 2 have blue tabs on them. ??? and 2 will need a tool. whats the tricks??

after i get it back together, whats the deal with getting it to start?? i called my dealer and he stated to just keep trying???

whats bad is, i voluntered to help my local rotory club with an off shore fishing trip with some guys this weekend. crap, they are depending on that.

thanks, dale

Clean the inside of the water separator with brake cleaner or carb cleaner. You need to cycle the key to the on position 6 times before trying to start your truck. Hopefully they didnt starve the high pressure pump and burn it up. Good luck.

After changing fuel filters u have to cycle the fuel pump at least 5 times before starting , turn the key on without cranking, leave on for 30 seconds, turn off for almost a min, repeat that 5 times, then try to start, U have to get all the air out of the lines.

Just a thought, do u know what brand fuel filters they used??

OK, how can I tell if they damaged the HP pump?

they used thier brand of filter. after the truck wouldnt start, they called the local dealer. they stated it needed motorcraft. they took the others out and put in motorcraft. still wont start.

Air in a diesel fuel system is bad. You need to bleed the air out.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

You can also bleed it through the banjo bolt up top (I wrapped a towel around it) or through the little air valve on the cooler. After I changed my fuel filters I had a no start situation and had to bleed it this way... be prepared to get covered in diesel though.
