1999 Ford Expedition won't start

My wife ran it out of gas, I put 3 gallons of gas in it and it won't start. I checked the fuel pump reset switch and it was okay. It is acting like the fuel pump is not working. I hear nothing when I turn it on. Where is the fuel pump fuse located?

It should be under the dash near the brake peddle, also a relay fuse under the hood. the fuel filter might have clogged up also. but you should be able to hear a faint whirring sound if the pump is working.

Car ran out of gas and won't start

Two things - - one is it could take a very long time to pump the air out of the lines, and two, the pump may be fried.
The pump relay only provides power to the pump for 3 seconds of crank time. So you have to keep turning the key on and off. Also, the pump uses liquid fuel for lube and to keep cool. Running the tank dry can fry the pump.

Why won't my car stay running after it ran out of gas

Most newer cars are very sensitive to being ran low on gas. The fuel pump is in the tank and relies on fuel to cool it down. Your fuel pump is now probably not pumping the required pressure for the fuel injection system to work properly (or at all).

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start

Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

What's your problem?my car out of gas put 2 gallons in won't start

Most likely air got in the fuel line. Try pumping the gas vigorously while turning the key to get the car started. Pumping will dispel the air in the line until you get a constant stream of fuel. Once started, you should be good to go.

I ran out of gas I put 2 gallons in but the car won't start. It will tunr over, the lights come on, but the car won't start. Do you think I need to keep cranking it and add a can of starting spray...

sounds like when you ran out of gas, you clogged your fuel filter. Change your fuel filter and put a little bit more gas in it and she should fire right up. Hope this helps, James Booth. :)

2002 Sunfire with 2.2 ECOTEC Car acted like it ran out of gas. Would crank, run roughly a few seconds, then again acted like it ran out of gas. The next day and the next 3 days it has performed...

have the fuel pressure and volume tested with a gage.this sounds and acts like a fuel pump problem.check the fuel filter as well and replace anyways.when it won`t start but cranks can you hear the fuel pump running.listen at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap off.if you can`t listen under the car at the fuel tank you should hear it running/if not hit the gas tank and if the car starts then the pump needs should check to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plugs to eliminate an ignition problem but i think its fuel.

My 1999 cadillac deville ran out of gas i put gas back in it but it just turn over it want start can somebody tell me why

How much gas did you put in? You should put in at least 3 gallons, and turn on the ignition switch, but don't turn it to start, let it sit for about 20 seconds to 'prime' the injectors/lines. Try to start it then. If you still cannot get it to start, check the injector rails for gas, there is what looks like a tire valve on top of the engine with a light green, plastic cap.Turn the key on and, with a rag thrown over the valve push in the pin in the center-you should get a healthy stream of gas out of it (use the rag to protect yourself from the spray. No spray? Either a clogged fuel filter, bad fuel regulator, the 'sock' filter in the tank is clogged, or the fuel pump is history. Running a tank low or out of fuel is real bad, because the fuel acts to cool a fuel pump. If it overheated badly while empty, you might have cooked it.
