2005 6.0 fuel problem

Ok so heres what ups. I have a 2005 F-350 6.0 PSD. I did fuel filters today(motorcraft) and i get it all back together and start it up and it runs for about 5 mins and it dies. So i opended the filter on top of the motor and i didnt have any fuel. So after messing with it for some time i figured out the pump on the frame rail wasnt working so i pulled the connectors off and cleaned them up and plugged them back it and boom it started working again and i let fuel get up to the filter housing on top of the motor. I then put the cap back on and turn the motor over and it fires right up. Its running a little rough so i let it idle for about 10 mins trying to get the air out. So i jump back in the truck and go to rev it and it dies. So now these is where im at. I checked and im getting all the fuel i need in the top filter housing. To me it seems like there is air from the housing to the injectors. I cranked the motor over a lot with nothing. Not even trying to fire. So my question is there anyway to get air out from the housing to the injectors or is my problem else where. P.S. where can i get a good deal on electric vaccum pump

Re: 2005 6.0 fuel problem

It takes quite some time to get all the air out of there. I recently had to replace my injectors and I let mine run for about 30 mins to help get that air flushed. But one other thing I did was fill the bowl to the top and just watch where the air is coming from to make sure I didn't have any other fuel issues.

Re: 2005 6.0 fuel problem

You could try to crack the filter cap and let some diesel flow out of it, but it will make a mess and i dont like doing that. Anybody know if the key cycle will purge the air just like the newer ones?

Re: 2005 6.0 fuel problem

you cycle the key but keep in mind the pump times (you should be able to hear this) out so cycle the key for about 10 seconds to the on position about 6 times ( i have watched a fuel psi guage to verify this procedure )
downside is it fires the glowplugs also so make sure your batteries are good

but since the OP has had it running since the change that procedure shouldn't do anything for him, thats just what to do after you change filters

something is up and since it ran fine before the filters I would be really critical of what
you may have done

Well this morning i after i cranked on it for a like while it started up and idled perfect so i pulled it out of the garage and let it idle for about 5 mins then i when and tried to rev it up and it died instant like i turned the key off. So i cracked the fuel lines at the head and cycled the key and im getting fuel there. Seems like this might be a whole differnent problem. When im cranking it does not even try to fire and nothing at all is coming out of the exhaust.

Re: 2005 6.0 fuel problem

If it was running fine before you changed the filters and after said filter change this problem started I'd be looking at the filter and everything to do with the filter I put in it. that has to be where the problem is.

i would agree but i have fuel all the way to the heads and its just not getting out of the injectors. I find it odd that something else would happen random while doing a filter change but i would'nt put anything past this damn 6.0s

Re: 2005 6.0 fuel problem

You need to take the fuel pressure when the truck is running just so the pump can be ruled out of the problem. Once that's done you need to get a scan tool on it to see what everything else is doing.

Re: 2005 6.0 fuel problem

you can have fuel psi but it is dying as soon as you ask for more so thats why we think it may be fuel related that and you just did the filters
