My bravada will not start unless you prime the system with a splash of gas in the throttle body. Then it will run until you turn it off then you have to prime the system again. Someone said it needs a fuel pump. If so why does it run after you prime it?

Do you
have the same problem?

Check your fuel pressure with a gauge then also check yoru fuel pump relay it may not be working on fire up. It's underhood. Autoparts rent the gauge
