the primer is on the fuel filter head. you need to crack the bleeder screw (right next ti the primer) and pump the primer (sometimes takes forever) untill fuel starts coming out of the bleeder. then tighten the bleeder screw back up. start er up

I think you just go to the fuel filter life on DIC and hold the ENTER (or the arrow button) on the steering wheel. That should reset it

Arrow button to reset fuel filter % is on the dash on th07.5 and up trucks, not on steering wheel anymore. But ya hold the reset arrow while the fuel filter % is on the screen and it will go to 100%.
