Fuel filter change with push-button start

Recommended Posts

One thing I didn’t realize until I changed mine on this new setup - there’s no bleeder and it may take a few starts/running it a bit to get to the point it starts immediately like normal. First change I was wondering if I did something wrong cause it cranked for a bit before starting, but it went away after the first drive. Just FYI if you notice the same.

It should prime by when start button is pushed, but foot not on brake. 


L5P supplement says let it prime (run the lift pump) for something like 30 seconds -- then try to start.

You can push the Start engine button on the dash until you hear a chime and the light turns green on the button.  This will engage the fuel pump and prime the fuel housing.  I would do this about 3x before trying to start the truck after a fuel filter change.  Just remember to not press the brake otherwise it will attempt to start the truck.

Happy new Year !

A little off topic but has anyone attempted to drain fuel from the fuel filter housing ?

I did a little research and got the torx bit and a inch pound torque wrench 

I took out the plug and nothing came out.

Does anyone have any experience in this ??

I was going  to just drop the filter and replace it r but I only have 12K on it
