prime prime prime, bleed.....

Repeat a few times til the primer is about as hard as its gonna get....

Then crank it over in bursts of 5-10 sec max...let it cool for a few seconds.

Might take 3-4 cycles of cranking to get all the air out.

NO these are high pressure lines (up to 23,000 psi).

Just use the bleeder screw at the fuel filter housing.

injector sleeve ?

i have been told that there is an injector "sleeve" at each , filled with or surrounded by coolant . it is important that the "sleeve" not be disturbed if possible when un-screwing each injector . try not to have the sleeve un -screw. other wise you have to replace the sleeve as well . which are added parts/labor $$$ . does this sound correct ?
thanks marc

kinda, you can't really un screw the injector. I lucked out on mine and all the injectors came right out. I am having other issues though if your interested its on another post I did. Changing the injectors wasn't bad itself its the problem I'm having now that sucks.

I'm hoping mine is within the extended warranty so I don't have to do this myself. It scares me. lol best of luck to you.
