If your fuel pump is primed, and operating normally (whirwhirwhir) it is going to push any air on thru to the controlled pressure loop the injectors will see, it runs continuously as long as the ignition is on, not regulated goes right back to the tank~ {and will purge whatever air immediately (if there is pressure)~

you probably need a new battery, if it's gettin' to be seven years or older, will not make the grade and actually pull performance down~
