Fuel Filter replacement

I just service my newly purchased 03 F350 6.0l SRW 4X4. Is there a trick or procedure to removing air from the fuel system? I have a slight "buck" and slight loss of power.

cycle the key to the on position 5-6 times without starting it hopefully that does the trick, you may not have seated the o-rings properly did you put some oil on them before installing?

make sure you only use motorcraft filters for the oil filter too or you can destroy the whole motor. Part No. FL2016
