Hi everyone i serviced my 56 plate tdci 1.8 focus yesterday and now the car wont start I know the problem is the fuel filter, I didnt add any extra diesel when i changed the filter and now there is air in the fuel lines, My question is how will i get it out?
Any help will be appreiciated thanks Adam
Hi mate, just serviced mine inc. fuel filter. The cylindrical casing that the filter fits back into has a bleed valve on the top. Although I filled my filter with diesel before fitting I still found air inside & the car would turn over then die. Whilst you crank it you need someone to open the bleed valve. You should hear a hiss as the air escapes & the car should fire up. I cranked mine 4-5 times & it kept dying until I got the wife to start the car whilst I did the bleed valve.
Keep us all posted mate.
