Bleeding diesel system

Post by Frank »

Bx TZD 92 How do I get fuel from tank to filter housing after replacing filter. Complete assembly removed from vehicle so guess fuel in supply pipe dropped to tank level. Filter housing pump nor cranking engine will pull fuel up.

Bad luck. You must have introduced an air leak while changing the filter as the hand pump should force fuel through and then back down to the tank via the return pipe.
Diesel can thicken up in sub zero conditions so hope you are not in Braemar.
