You need to be very quiet for this test, but try turning the ignition key until dash warning lights are on, but without cranking the engine. Listen for whirring noise from fuel pump in the gas tank. You may even lift out the rear seat base, to pick up any sound as best you can. If you can't hear anything from several attempts then it's likely you have a failed fuel pump. The fuel pump can sometimes suffer damage when running out of fuel.

SOURCE: Problem continues from early July

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Yes that's what I suspect after reading your problem. This is common issue specially when the fuel pump in tank is bout to reach it's break point. I strongly suggest that you have the fuel pump replaced to resolve the issue. Please do check your fuel too, if there are visible rust or dirt please make sure that you drain it out for it can clog the fuel lines.

Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

You have coils (two) just under the plastic covering over the spark plugs. $99.00 ea. + tax 2 years ago. I think they maybe called ignition coils. Don't hold me to that.
That was what was wrong with mine. I went to a
dealer $850.. with labor and kept my car 2 days.

SOURCE: car cranks but doesn't start

Take the car in and have the fuel injector computer tested. If you're hearing the crank, you're getting good spark, but the fuel/air mix is off. Ensure your air filter is clean, and have that computer checked, all it takes is a little bit of bit-wander to make your fuel-air mix go completely haywire.

My 93 chrysler town and country ran out of gas i added 3 gallons of gas still wont start turns over but wont start?

add another two or three. your fuel pump sits in a module which has a valve on it to let gas in, but as the car gets older that valve needs more weight to open and let gas in. this module is about 12" high, so if you fill the tank you will definitely fill the module as well. but adding at least two more gallons should get the car started

My car ran out of gas, now it will not start

If high miles, it may be a fuel pump. Fuel pumps usually go when gasoline is low and pump gets too warm. This may mimic running out of gas when there is a gallon or two of gas still left to draw but needle reads empty. Have someone put their ear to the gas tank while you turn on the ignition switch. the pump should run for 2-10 seconds with key on and not cranking.

If you don't hear the pump run, then investigate further for a failed pump.

2009 chevy aveo ran out of gas now it wont crank

No crank to a mechanic means the starter motor doesn't spin the engine over, is this what you mean? Or do you mean the engine cranks over but will not fire up and run? If it is the latter have you added at least 3 gallons of gas to the tank to make sure the electric fuel pump inside the tank can properly prime? If not do that, also you can spray starting fluid into the engine engine air intake pipe after adding the 3 gallons and see if that gets it going. If it still will not start you have burned up the fuel pump and you will need to drop the fuel tank and replace the pump, remember the pump is cooled and lubricated by the gasoline it runs in, so when you run low on fuel or out you can very quickly severely damage the small electric fuel pump. Never let the gas gauge level go below 1/8 tank to prevent premature fuel pump failure.

Engine will crank but will not turn over

our experiensces of this when all is going well - was the car ran out of gas......or stop getting gas....ensure the gas matter & pour a little gas over the carberator & give it another try or so....when you are driving & it just goes dead slowly - fuel-connected circumstances are usually the 1st problem.....

got fuel, starter working, battery ok etc. - its a fuel matter more than likely.....

Ran out of gas.. that nite below feezin temps. car froze. allowed car to thaw. added gas... wont start. no oil leak. no water in oil. was pushed out of road wen car ran out of gas.. is there a fuel reset...

No ressting to do. You need to remove all air from the fuel lines. Running out of gas in any fuel injected vehicle is a big no no for it is so expensive to get back running right. Add 5 gallons of fuel to get good priming pressure first of all
Turn the ignition key on for 5 secondes and turn it off for ten secocds. Do this step 5 time to bring up fuel pressure to the engine
Next try and start it
If it does not start release the air pressurized in the fuel line at the fuel rail above the engine. It looks like a tire air fill valve. Use a rag to catch the gas that spews out as you bleed the air out
Now turn the igition key on and off again for 5 times as stated above and proceed to start the engine once more
Good luck

Car ran out of gas, when gas was put in the car just cranks but wont start.

I know with some cars, you need to put in at least 5 gallons of gas after running out in order to reset the sensor so it starts sending the gas
