05 6.0 air in fuel need some help please

So i had a dumb *** attack when i changed my fuel filters this weekend. I didnt get the cap on the bottom filter all the way tight for some reason. Anyway i drove it and well i could definantly tell there was air in my fuel. How should i go about bleading the air out??

make sure the cap is tight and then cyle the key 5 to 6 times and let the fuel pump run till it stops each key cycle. thats about all you can do then start it and go drive it. this will bleed the rest from the system.

yes, your going to need to run it to bleed the air out of the fuel rails and lines ect. cracking open the secondary fuel filter cap will help, but your going to have to take her out for a spin
