Gauge may be off, you can try putting more gas in, or the fuel filter may have gotten clogged with junk from bottom of tank.

SOURCE: Engine wont stay running. Please help.

change the filter first. IF the pumpwas bad it wouldnt start at all. It could be going bad but the only way to really test it is to pull your gas tank and at that rate you may as well replace it.

you could have a clogged injector causing the lack of fuel as well. you can try injector cleaner, Lucas is my personal preference I use it at every fill-up. 4-6oz per tank of gas depending on your tank size.

You will need to check the fuel pressure. You will have a connection on the fuel line to the motor under the hood. No fuel pressure indicates one of three problems. Fuse in fuse box, relay in relay box under the hood or fuel pump located in fuel tank.

SOURCE: ran out of gas wont start now

if its petrol engine bang bottom of fuel tank while some one else cranks vehicle over if it starts good just pump jammed if it dont buzz to life and you cant hear fuel pump buzzing ceck for power to it if thats there replace pump. running out of fuel kills electric fuel pumps internally in petrol tanks.

if its diesel you must bleed fuel system taking extreme care if you un do lines some very high pressure

It is not the anti thief systm


Could be as simple as an air lock in your fuel lines. Its best to never let your tank get below one quarter full as it can cause moisture to build up in your tank as well. It does not cost any more to keep a full tank than to let it run empty then fill it.

If it ran out of gas, there are two possible easy fixes. One is that the fuel filter is plugged up by junk from the bottom of the tank. The other is that water floats on top of gas and now your lines are a mix of fuel and water. I would change the filter and put water remover in the tank. Make sure there is a least 10 gallons of fresh fuel in the truck. If neither of these work, the pump may have been damaged as it uses the fuel to keep it cool.

Wont start


CHECK SHRADER VALVE ON FUEL RAIL FOR PRESSURE. IT IS COMMON FOR PUMP'S TO GO OUT. YOU CAN HAVE SOMEONE LISTEN TO TANK FOR A BUZZ NOISE ON KEY CYCLES OR TEST FUEL PUMP CONNECTOR HARNESS FOR POWER. TRY KEEPING AT LEAST QUARTER TANK AT ALL TIMES TO KEEP FUEL PUMP COOL,SOME PEOPLE DRIVE ON LOW AQLL TIMES AND KEEPS PUMP HOT CAUSING PREMATURE FAILURE.

You might have killed your fuel pump. It's said that if you let the tank get too low or run the pump dry you can ruin it. I would see about getting a fuel pressure tester to check it.

My stratus 2004 seams to work find but smoe times when acelerate to start moving the engine stalls then works ok, engine light at the panel does not come out when stalling


If your problem seems to be worse when the fuel tank is at a quarter or lower, then your problem is the fuel pump. I had this problem on my daughters car, asked every car guy I knew and a couple of dealer service techs no one could help. Since everything else worked and there was no problem if the fuel tank was above a quarter tank I decided to check the tank baffles. It turns out there are no baffles in this tank the fuel pump has a little reservoir built into the bottom with a little flapper button that is supposed to let fuel in, but not out. Anyway a new pump fixed my problem. Good Luck!
