I ran ouy of gas in 1999 chevy i put gas back in it and know it won't start


You may have siezed the fuel pump. Fuel is used as a lubricant for the fuel pump. When you run out of gas and continue to crank the engine the fuel pump siezes from lack of lubrication. Sometimes you can get lucky by banging on the fuel tank while someone else turns the key to the run position (Not cranking the engine). keep slapping your hand against the fuel tank. This may free up the fuel pump. when you hear the fuel pump hum again then all is good. Also check your fuses, maybe you jsut burned up the fuel pump fuse.

I can pour gas into the carburetor and car starts, run until gas is gone fom carburetor. I disconnect hose from fuel pump to carburetor and do not see gas flow. Fuel pump has been replaced. Am thinking...


I would say more than likely your problem is a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. To narrow this down, listen for the fuel pump 'priming' (making a whining noise from the gas tank) turn the key to the On position and you should hear this whining for about 3 seconds, if you can hear this the fuel pump works fine, if not it is probably time for a new one. As for the fuel filter being that it is a 1987, I would replace it even if it is not clogged, the easiest way to test if it is clogged though is to blow at through it with your mouth and if you feel any resistance then it needs replacing.

1998 1500 will not start unless I pour a little gas in the carb. When I stop the engine after running a while it will not start again unless I pour gas into carb again. Any ideas?


It is your fuel pump or fuel filter. When you turn your key on, you should hear a buzzing sound for a second or two. If you don't hear it, thats what it probably is. If you have a fuel pump relay or fuse, check that first. If the pump kicks on, check the filter. One of these is your solution my friend.

We have a 85 ford ltd that will not start. it has 8 gallons of gas in it and my husband thinks the fuel pump may need a fuse. could this be a possibility?


Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? If so the fuse and pump relay should be good. Is the fuel filter 10 years old and clogged up? Do you hear the fuel pump start when cycling the ignition on and off. Probably lost a fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump. If you got fuel your no start could be a number of other ignition issues.

99 yukon 180,000 mi. doesn't start. cranks forever, but won't start. Should I be able to hear the fuel pump when I turn on the key?


yes you should be able to hear the fuel pump run for about 5 seconds once the key is turned to the on pos. check to make sure you have spark. if you do try having someone spray air intake or carb cleaner into intake manifold while you crank. If the truck starts right up for a second (or stays running as you keep spraying) Id say you have a bad fuel pump and id change the sending unit also. (First check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay) GMC and Chevy are nororiously known for having bad fuel pump/sending unit problems. I have prob changed over 60 myself.

Won't start up


Check to make sure you are getting fuel pressure. Can you hear the fuel pump come on? Will it start with carb cleaner being sprayed in the carb (watch for back fire)? If it will start with carb spray and you can not hear the pump its the pump. Try to get it to go like a old stuck starter. Have someone turn the key and use your fist to bang the fuel tank sometimes that will get it to go. Sounds like you need a pump.
