If it is starting and running OK now then all the air is out of the system.

Fluid pumps, like fuel pumps and water pumps, can't pump air, so they can get air locks.
Air bubble blocks full flow until it can be purged.

It reads like the air has been purged.

When i got off work last night it fired right uo with no problem. i didnt do anything to it. same thing this morning had no problem. would it be that the pump sock was clogged or something else was..... when i ran out of gas i put 5gallons in it.



i missed this post.^^^ I would add techron to a few tanks abd change the filter again.

. Now Don't do it again. One of the worst things you can do to a EFI motor. :)
