You'll need to prime the pump. (The primer on top of the fuel filter.) If you have the owner's manual, it will show the location and what to do.

Hope this helps.

hey, since you had to prime it, that puts you that much closer to changing your own fuel filter. just a few more steps before the priming portion and you are there.

glad you got it running again. You might not want to run the truck too low on fuel. that's the easiest way to get junk in the filter especially when not running any additives.

I for one will spare you the blond jokes if you stop using the friggin word that rhymes with a**. You have a diesel engine that runs on diesel fuel and like other posts told you,don't let your level get so low---that actually is a blond thing{sorry}.I always try for half full or more,especially now with the condensation turning to ice with the more air space you allow in your tank.Glad you're fixed up brother.
