No
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago

when this happens the filter itself where it seals to the housing or the switch in the bottom of the filter is sucking in air to cause you to have to prime it for it to run

can you be sure there is no brown stains of fuel stains at all on that housing or under the filter at all ?

Remove the hose from the Fuel Pressure Relief Valve at the rear of the driver side fuel rail. Crank the engine and check for fuel flow from the relief valve port. If fuel flow is present, replace the Fuel Pressure Relief Valve.

Check the fuel line back to the tank for a sign of leaking.

If these are all fine replace the fuel filter housing.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.
