Are you a robot

Mechanic's Assistant: Yes, I'm a bot. I make the process of talking to the Construction Mechanic more efficient and affordable by asking basic questions. Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

How long shoyuld he primeing pump run for? ive disconnected outlet on fuel filter and no fuel comes out when i turn key on prime pump runs for about 10 seconds then shuts off installed new fuel injection pump last year

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Construction Mechanic to know before I connect you?
