I have a 97 nissan sentra ive ran out of gas 3 times this month and the last time i ran out of gad i filled it and drove it for a while that day then it shut off and wont start no more


more like fuel pump damaged. gasoline keeps fuel pump cool and lubricated if fuel tank run empty fuel pump will over heat which will destroy it. never run out of gas.fuel filter will get plugged with debris from fuel tank when tank runs empty all sediment botton tank will break up stop up fuel filter.

93 ford thunderbird LX dies as if starving for gas after I start it


You may have cooked the fuel pump.
Cars today use a fuel pump in the gas tank. The pump uses gasoline for both lube and to help keep the pump cool. Anytime the tank is below 1/4 the pump is working harder and running hotter than normal. If you drove it for 2 hours low on fuel, the pump may have died.
I would check the fuel pump relay to make sure the pump is getting power, if it is not, you can bypass the relay to verify it is not a pump problem.

My car ran out of gas, now it will not start


If high miles, it may be a fuel pump. Fuel pumps usually go when gasoline is low and pump gets too warm. This may mimic running out of gas when there is a gallon or two of gas still left to draw but needle reads empty. Have someone put their ear to the gas tank while you turn on the ignition switch. the pump should run for 2-10 seconds with key on and not cranking.

If you don't hear the pump run, then investigate further for a failed pump.

91 camaro ran out of gas and will not start now put six gallons of gas in it , and will start when it is primed but will not stay running does it take a while to pick up out of tank


Your fuel pump needs constant gasoline flow in order to stay lubricated.

People who often run their gas tanks to low levels force their fuel pumps to work harder, without the necessary oils in the gasoline to lubricate the bilge.

It sounds like you've burnt up your fuel pump.

Go to your local auto parts dealer and pick one up. You might want to consider also adding a fuel filter as well.

Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helps!

1987 Toyota Camry, auto, 4 cyl. I thought I was low on gas (since had fuel light on)...car would not start. Walked home (20 mins) came back and added fuel (1 gal), started and drove to gas station - filled...


theres a couple of things to check for this first generation series,, check the Air flow meter connector FP terminals, and intake tube, make sure its tight and doesnt have a leak.

Just filled the gas tank in my 2006 f-350 turbo diesel super duty (6.0), started the truck and the guage showed a full tank. Drove down the road about 1/10 of a mile and the guage dropped to dead empty...


A loose connection on the sending unit could cause the problem but also moisture in the tank in cold weather could also be a factor in which i would add fuel line antifreeze to a full tank of fuel..........Hope this helps you out.

My gas guage is not accurate, the needle seems to jump around while driving. I ran out of gas at 1/4 tank the other day. What could the problem be on a 87 iroc z?


GasparMacari is 100% on target. I had the same problem with my IROC. Seems that the sulphur in the gas errodes the contacts on the gas gauge sensor in the fuel tank. I know of people that have tried gasoline additives to clean the corrosion but I would give it a 50/50 chance of working. You gotta drop the tank to get at the fuel pump/sensor assembly. You are looking at some big bucks and it is NOT a do-it-yourself project. One spark and BOOM no more Camaro... or YOU... I'd suggest setting or re-setting your odometer trip indicator every time you fill up. Keep track of the miles driven .vs your MPG and you can figure out when it is time to fill 'er up again. That's what I did until I traded it off.

Fuel problem 1998 cadillac deville


actually it is a theft system problem. the car is acting as if it were stolen and was ran until it was out of gas. the system just needs to be cleared and the car will start right up.
