Fuel Injection Bleeding Required?

Hi all,

My car has been off the road for 6 months & during that time I replaced the fuel filter.

Now she is running very rough, unable to blip throttle, misfiring etc. Do I need to bleed the fuel injection system & if so how?

Thanks

"Bleeding" the injection system is not required. Hopefully, you stored it with StaBil or some other fuel stabilizer in it, otherwise you could have a problem with bad gas. Consider dumping a bottle of Techron in the tank and running out the fuel...........
