Fuel filter help.

My father-in-law has changed his fuel filter in his 08 6.4l and now the truck won't start. He has tried several times to cycle the key and he can hear the fuel pump come on then it will start and run for a few seconds and then die. :shrug:

He bought the filters from Ford and said that the new filter is smaller in length by 1/2". Also said that it appears to look different. He called Ford and they told him that this is the correct filter.

He only changed the engine mounted filter (didn't have the correct socket for the frame mounted unit).

Has anyone had this issue or does anyone know what I can tell him to get the truck started?

Thanks in advance.:thanks:

make sure of the correct filter. there is a schrader valve on the fuel cooler that can help bleeding of the system. some times we have to use the laptop to command the pumpto run while bleeding

like lubester said make sure the filter is the right one. there is a air bleed in the small filter housing above the return line that should help bleed the air out.
