Re: Truck wont prime after filter change. Help please.
Need more info on your truck. If it is an OBS
(94-97), the fuel pump is a purely mechanical 2-stage pump (so no priming happens when the key is turned on). The fuel only flows when cranking. The connector in the picture looks more like the harness connector to the EBPV
solenoid that would connect over by the base of the turbo on the driver's side (which would be nothing to do with fuel. From the factory the fuel filter "clips" into the cap. Many aftermarket filters come with an integral cap, so depending on what replacement filter you bought, you might need a factory cap (if your previous filter had the integral cap).
Does the WTS light come on? If not, check undehood fuse #22 and if blown disconnect the fuel heater (about halfway down the driver's side of the fuel bowl, funky looking spade connector that pulls off straight out from the bowl), and replace fuse. With the cap/filter removed, does the bowl fill when cranking? Have you tried switching tanks? Cheers!
