Loosen this fitting and pump the hand lever on your fuel pump until absolutely no air comes out of the bleeder.only diesel fuel tighten the Bleeder This is not mentioned in your video...... hopefully this is the problem. air can trapped at this point when you change fuel filters or run out of fuel.
Bleeding the fuel on this is easier than that; Turn the knob on the side of the injector pump, and turn the key to the "on" position. The electric fuel pump will push fuel through the system and "click" rapidly. Let it run (click) for a minute, then turn the knob to close the valve. The system is now bled.
