Default My '93 Bonneville won't start

I replaced the fuel filter and now the car won't start! I tried to jump it and it cranks but will not start! Doesn't the fuel pump re-pressurize on it'* own or do I now have https://www.gmforum.com/gm/images/smilies/533.gifair in the fuel lines?

How long did you take to swap the filter...Did you twist or kink the gas line when you changed the filter.How long did you have the new filter before it was installed

I bought the filter about 1.5 weeks ago. I DID kink the line, but I thought I fixed it. I'll check the fuel line again tomorrow and get back with you. I did notice when I was depressurizing the fuel line at the Schrader valve that very little fuel came out. Talk to you again tomorrow.

There WAS a kink in the line. I cut out the bad section and replaced. The car fired right up! Thanks for your help SSEIDRIVER97 I appreciate it!
