    Hello folks I started my 6.0 diesel the other day it went for about a half a block died. With the water indicator light on. Drained using the water drain plug Washed out the housing thoroughly with that drain plug still off thoroughly rinsing the housing replaced with new filter re-inserted the plug replaced new high-pressure filter . I have checked for in-line fuel pressure by cracking the high-pressure filter. Turn the key on and it really sprayed. I tighten everything back down make sure there was no air a lines. I Then proceeded to try to start back up and nothing I would definitely appreciate some help on this thank you very much

    I assume you cycled the key several times first to purge the air out?

    What do you mean "nothing"?

    It doesn't crank at all (ie the engine doesn't even try to turn)?

    Also, you don't have a "high pressure filter". You have a primary filter where water is also removed and a secondary filter that filters down to smaller particles. The primary filter also houses the fuel pump and is called an HFCM (horizontal fuel conditioning module).
