Ford Fusion 1.4 tdci

Hi has anyone got a 1.4 tdci my fusion keeps getting air in the fuel system, I’ve replaced the fuel lines on top of the engine with primer bulb, new fuel filter which seem to make it worse so put the old fuel filter back, and changed the injector bleed off pipes, smeared thick grease around joints , is there any other easy way of tracing the leak, any help would be great thanks in advance

hi, what gives you the impression its getting air into the system? is it hard to start the next day due to fuel starvation?

New fuel lines on the high pressure pump, new fuel filter but yes air getting in somehow the car starts runs on the fuel in the pipes then cuts out, pump fuel up with the little hand pump gets it running again then the same hours later, the fuel drains back to the tank

Must have driven over something,dont know if ford stock those pipes or if rubber fuel hose and jubilee clips might work as its not a feed but a return.You would think of diesel leaking underneath vehicle.
