Fuel problem 1998 cadillac deville

Hi...

My wife ran out of gas. I added about 4 gallons and the car won't start. I'm thinking maybe gunk from the bottom of the gas tank clogged with fuel lines. I also don't hear the fuel pump turn on. Could the lack of gas ruin the fuel pump? How to I change it or clean out the lines? Please reply to my email banning@suddenlink.net. Thank you.

I read somewhere that the fuel pump is lubricated by the Gasoline.It warned to never run out of gas with these Cadillacs.It may need a new fuel filter now.

The junk may have collected in your fuel filter?

Someone posted they had there fuel pump quit after running out of gas 3 weeks later. Try disconnecting your battery for 10 minutes first to see if it is actually the Anti-theft system.

Actually it is a theft system problem. the car is acting as if it were stolen and was ran until it was out of gas. the system just needs to be cleared and the car will start right up.

Almost ran out of gas. put 5 gallons in tank.


worst thing for fuel pumps is to run dry. The pressure will need to be confirmed. If none ,you overheated the pump and it will need to be replaces.

95 sedan deville wont start and says fuel low with gas in tank


I'd start by tracing the fuel supply and return lines from the gas tank to the engine compartment. Make sure that they are free of kinks or other damage.

Next, check the fuse box and make sure there is power to the fuel pump. Trace the electrical connections leaving the fuel tank and make sure they weren't torn or otherwise damaged by the tire tread.

Hope this helps and good luck!
