Priming Fuel System

Question: I replaced my gas tank - new pump and new hoses. On initial start up some gas leaked from where the seal on the tank is, so I fit it on again (tighter) and it stopped. The car cranks and cranks but will not start. I can hear the pump, but is there some type of bleeding or anything I need to do?

Answer: You need to prime the fuel system. This is done on any Fiero by switching the key on (not cranking) for 5 seconds. Then switch off for 10-20 seconds. Then on.....then off. About 5-6 timed cycles.

The electric pump will purge the air through the injectors and then begin injecting fuel.
