Yes, the steering is self bleeding, just turn the steering wheel lock to lock a few times.

Fiddly but not impossible, I would take the door off and place it on a table with a blanket underneath.

A blocked breather on the fuel cap wouldn't cause a vacuum after just a 30 second run but I think you are right, it is probably fuel related.
