    Bleed the fuel system (its part of the process when changing the fuel filter) there are some good clips on you tube demonstrated on freelanders

    I'd pre fill diesel filters where applicable to prevent air in the system..

    Never done a 'lander so can't say..

    but Duratorque diesel fords will not run unless the fuel filter is primed before installation.
