I just changed my fuel line and I know the pump was working because the fuel was leaking throught the side of the hose that I replaced, however the gas is not going throught and when I check the hose, its full of gas again, but it is not going in to the engine. I also replaced the fuel filter, so its not clogged up. I was told that near the engine fuel injectors there is a valve to release the air in the line, but I don't know which one it is. Can someone show me a picture of where to find the air release valve?

What this sounds like is that you switched the return and the supply lines by mistake. There is no air bleed in the system as whatever air there is will be pushed out of he injectors as they do their thing. Go to the two metal fuel lines at the drivers side and swap the two hoses that you replaced and try it again, and dont feel bad, I have done the same thing.
