hard to start after fuel filter change

so i changed my fuel filter few hours ago i did cycle the ignition on about 3 times so fuel pump would prime. now after i let it sit for about a hour it had a hard time starting. could there still be air in the fuel system? if so how do i go about getting the air out?

It should automatically bleed out whatever air is in there. Check all of the o-rings on both filter housings to make sure that air isn't getting in somewhere.

OK Did you actually drive it around ? It takes about 30 to 40 miles to the air completely out of the system. You probably sit have some left. Drive it around like i said for about that many miles and see.
