Maybe the fuel pump has gone out and not pumping gas anymore. I've done this but you can do it at your own risk, pour a few drops of gasoline on the air filter and reinstall it. Now try and see if it will fire and maybe start if the fuel pump is working enough to get some gas to the engine. If it trys to start but quits then try it again. Just be careful with gasoline, but you know that since you just filled it up somehow.

Try holding the gas pedal to the floor and crank the engine. Don't crank for more than a minute as it will burn out the starter. Good luck and if this doesn't work we can try something else. Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thank you.

I ran out of gas and now car wont start


You should look for a gas container, go to the nearest gas station, fill it, get back to your car and por the content of your gas container in the refill point of your car. If you don't have a gas container available, maybe you can buy one at the gas station.
Actually make, model and year of your car makes no difference to solve thei sad issue.
Some gas stations won't sell you gas in a container. In this case you should call a towing service and take your car to the gas station.

My 95 Nissan Maxima has trouble starting in cold have to press on gas to get it to start


I suspect you may not have enough fuel pressure.Fuel injection requires very high pressure to start car and by pumping the gas pedal the car is flooding itself and that let's it start.

My hhr ran out of gas, filled it, now it wont start at all.


Only Ford products have a Fuel Safety
Reset Switch & they only open in an
accident
Have it towed to a shop & diagnosed
Given the age & the fact you ran it out
of fuel,I would say the fuel pump needs
to be replaced

95 chevy corsica wont start. it ran fine the night before but now it turns but wont start.


As with any no start issue, you need to figure out if you are dealing with a no fuel or no spark problem to proceed.
The pump could have failed, or the filter in the tank could be plugged up.
I would make sure it has spark at the plugs and then check fuel pressure with a gauge.

Your tranny filter may be clogged. It could be a gas problem, fuel filter or injectors. Try checking the filter and make sure to check the gas pressure. If that checks, it could be bad spark plugs and wires. Best bet is to try to get a code.

My 1999 chevy silverado is cutting out and dying. i've changed the fuel filter, it ran fine about four miles then stalled and won't start.it will start and idle then seems to run out of gas.


Wouldn't happen to be a diesel, would it? If so, do a search on ebay for a remote fsd/pmd module. Fixed my 95 'rado (in less than 20 minutes) with a 6.5 turbo diesel -it would stall wherever and whenever it wanted, without warning.

I would listen for the fuel pump(take the gas cap off and listen for the buzz when someone turns the key on), if no buzz or whine then have them crank the engine.If still no noise then take a hammer and hit the middle of the gas tank while the car is being started(make sure E-brake is applied)If it starts it's your fuel pump.
