Jake :

Hi there, thanks for the question.

Jake :

from your description it looks like you already found air in the lines from a leak at the primer pump

Jake :

if the primer was replaced and the air leak fixed

Jake :

you still need to bleed the system to prevent a vapor lock issue

Jake :

this will require the #1 injector to be loosed while you crank the engine or activate the electric pump

Jake :

when no more bubbles come out tighten the injector and the system should be free from air.

Jake :

If it continues to fail to start even though it has been fully bled, then you need to check for fuel pressure first.

Jake :

depending on the pressure test results, that would tell if the in tank pump has failed or if you need to check for injector pulse operation

Jake :

let me know if you need anything else thanks.
