I can't get my truck to start after replacing the fuel pump.

Asked by Sep 04, 2015 at 03:55 PM about the 1992 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced the fuel pump on my 1992 Chevy Silverado 5.7L, and now it
won't start.  I think the fuel lines have air in them, will it work itself out, or is
there a process for me to bleed them?
