Question about 1991 Buick Regal
First of all, let me say that the car has been running perfectly fine. i took it to a mechanic and had all the fluids filled, and the mechanic said it was in good shape. i drove it about 10miles home from a friends house, and it ran fine. i went out the next day and it wouldnt start. i could hear the starter but the engine wouldnt start. not even the littlest putt. just the starter. i was almost empty (really really close to empty, might have been completely empty) on gas when i came home the night before so i went and got gas and gave it a jump...i charged the battery for about 5 minutes with my dads pickup and it still wouldnt start. ive checked spark plug cables and put even more gas in it.
it has never done this before! please help!
If your engine is turning over, it's probably no problem with your battery. I would be listening for the fuel pump. If you hear no sound from the tank when the key is in the "on" position, then it's more than likely the fuel pump. One thing to check first, be sure the fuel pump fuse is not blown. You can check fuel pump operation further by disconnecting the fuel line, at the fuel filter, and putting the end in a gas can, have some one turn the switch to the on position, fuel should run in to the gas can. If not, replace the fuel pump. If fuel runs from the hose, and you have disconnected it on the fuel tank side of the filter, then it could be the filter. Especially if it has not been changed in 15,000 miles or so.

Fuel pump probably bad u should never let your gas level go below quarter tank the fuel cools off your fuel pump keeps it from burnin out
