If it is a gasoline engine, you don't have to bleed any air. Just crank the engine until it starts

check your spark plugs and make sure their all connected tightly, could also be a fuel pump, fuel filter, dirty air filter, look if the igniter is well grounded, that could also be the cause

first need to make sure you have enough fuel pressure. Hook up a tester and check against the specs. if its too low, then your probably looking at a fuel pump. By replacing the filter, you allowed more fuel to flow. Also, make sure you are getting spark and injector pulse.

See if the fuel is reaching the engine by loosen the fuel pipe before the injectors if not, change the fuel filter the one in the tank and the one next to the engine and bleed the fuel line it might be an airlock.

Clogged fuel filter

you must have an extreme amount of rust and sediment in your gas tank. you probably need to drain it completely and flush it out. I wouldn't use water to flush it as it will just cause more rust.

its possible but it usually takes quite a bump or jar to set that off.
it helps to remember that a vehicle need 3 things to start
spark is easy to see if your getting. have an assistant watch
remove one spark plug wire from the plug and lay the wire next to a metal nut or bolt on the engine
then crank the engine, the assistant should see a bright spark coming from the wire

fuel is easy but it takes the correct tool. buy or rent a fuel pressure tester. attach it to the fuel rail (where your fuel injectors are attached to) and check the pressure with the car on and the car off but the key on run (your local auto parts store can help you with finding the standard fuel pressure)

air is very easy, check your air filter. though I have never seen an air filter so dirty a vehicle wouldnt start,

finally if all those check out. either take it to a shop or check the timing belt yourself.
if your timing belt goes your vehicle would stop immediately and it wont restart till its replaced

95 Chevy Caprice won't start unless I disconnect the fuel line.

Fuel pump can also cause this problem, You find out if fuel pump is faulty by energising directly fuel pump, and checking fuel pressure.

Check also the fuel line, starting from gas tank, often oxide and dirt from tank can obstruct the hose. Disconnect fuel hose and blow air into it .

Check also air filter and air intake.
