Question about 1991 Pontiac Grand Prix
Daughters car ran out of gas, put 5 gal in, won't start.
It will run if I squirt starter fluid into intake.
Does this mode have a fuel pump shutoff if the tank runs dry,
and if so, where is it.
Yes this is most likely the fuel pump, and here is why, the tiny little pump in your gas tank works really hard, the way it is able to do this is the fuel around it is very efficient at cooling it, if the car is run low on fuel allot and then run out of gas it burns out the pumps bearings which are also cooled and lubed by the gas. Replace the pump and the filter.
