Purging air from fuel system

Anyone else have trouble with the 05-06's with air in the fuel system after filter changes? I have two buddies with 05's that their trucks will not start without letting the fuel pump run for two key cycles for a couple weeks after a filter change. I just changed the filters in my 06 again and have this same thing now. Never had this problem on my 03. O-rings on both filters are fine. Anyone else have this happen?

after a filter change you need to cycle the key on for 20 seconds then off. do this 3 times.

Perhaps you have an 03-04 filter in an 05 truck? I read that there was a change in the fuel filter cap that would not allow it to seat properly with the old filter. Did you check the o ring?

Are there new filters for 05/06's? I did notice the fuel filter lid is different than on the 03/04's. I believe it is the same as the oil filter lid... O-rings are fine.

That's interesting...I used a Motorcraft filter. The book only had 1 part number for the 6.0's though...

Motorcraft knew the lid was changing wix did not..so the ford one will fit both wear as the wix needs two different ones.,,now that said make sure you look down in the fuel bowl cause the inner flange of the old fuel filter can stay on the post and the new one will go on just not seal right....I will try to post a pic latter with what Im talking about....
