How do I bleed the air from the fuel line after replacing the fuel pump?

Asked by Apr 10, 2007 at 09:43 PM about the 1991 Chevrolet Camaro RS Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1991 camaro rs convertible and we just replaced the fuel pump...Everything looks right, and when we prime the injectors it tries to kick over, but it still won't start. We think we need to bleed the air out of the fuel line but I can't find the bleeder valve...any suggestions?

1 Answer

The bleeder valve is located on the passenger side of the fuel rail. Its located under a thumb screw cap. Depress the shradder valve with the switch turned on--be very carefull as the fuel pressure should be about 45pds at the rail. Also, I am assuming the car was running. If the car quit and you decided the fuel pump was the problem are you sure your ignition module didn't fail. The module is located inside the distributor.
