Wont' crank after fuel ran empty

2001 TDI -My fuel line pulled loose and emptied all the fuel as I drove down the road. I have replaced the fuel line (and fuel), but the car still won't crank.

    Because the fuel injected diesel engine ran empty of fuel, once the fuel line was repaired, it took many, many tries at cranking for the fuel to finally reach the point of ignition. Thanks for the suggestion.

Fuel is what lubs the pump you might have burn it cranking it without gas if no fuel n you keep cranking it it will burn its inside the tank

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.

Engine turns over, but will not start.


Check the fuel pump for pressure by removing the send line from the fuel filter and ranking the car. Place the line in an empty 2 liter soda bottle and have a friend crank the engine a couple of times to see if the pump sends fuel. If not, replace the fuel pump an replace the filter since you will have a line removed already.

Have a 2001 gmc jimmy...drove home gas gauge read 1/4 tank..next day cranked over but wont start..gas gauge reads empty...put $10.00 from spare gas can..cranked over but no start ..gas gauge still reads...


chevy and gmc trucks have an on going problem with this,turn the key on,and get a rubber mallot or a hammer and hit the bottom of the fuel tank a couple of times,this will unstick something in the fuel pump/sending unit.

Ran out of fuel


The reason is: When you completely run out of gas your gas lines are completely drained of fuel. When you refuel the car the fuel lines are still empty, and you will need to crank the car until the fuel pump has filled the gas lines and established the correct fuel pressure.I also suggest you turn key to on position to let electrical system run fuel pump and when ready to crank over engine have battery hooked up to a battery charger this should do it!!

My o1 saturn had a loose pos cable, after I tightened it carged the battery , now it cranks but wont start. the fuel gauge said it was empty added five gallons still nothing.


if the tank was completly emptyyou will need to turn the key on without cranking it several times befor trying to start so it can load the fuel lines and injectors.if that doesn't work.you'll need to change the inline fuel filter because it probaly sucked allthe trash up at the bottom of your tank.make sure you hear a slight humming niose when turning the key the 1'st few times that tells you the fuel pump itself is working.hope this helps please rate this.thank's

2001 VW JETTA SPUTTERING AND BACK FIREING WONT GO OVER 10MPH


First check all wires for any thing loose.
The muffler blowing up leads me to think the engine is so far out of time the PCM cant correct it.

REally you need to get it to a good mechanic.
