Question about Cars & Trucks
My 1989 Chevy S10 Durango 4.3 cranks but won't start. It was running yesterday. This morning I went to start it up, it started, I moved forward about 10 feet, put it in reverse, backed up about 10 feet, then put it back into drive where it moved about 5 feet and then shut down and hasn't' started since. I checked the vacuum lines, they aren't cracked, they're connected, turned the key forward and couldn't quite tell if I heard the fuel pump or not. I tried starting it and had a friend who smelled gas at the front of the car. It has about a quarter of a tank. The weather has been about 25 degrees for the past week or so, abnormally cold for the area.

Check if your wires are on TIGHTLY on the battery, if one loses a touch, your car will shut off. If you go over a tiny bump, or turn to one side or another, they could disconnect, causing your car to lose a + or a - cable connection. Which would very well make your car shut off. Also, check for any corrosion on the battery terminals. Good luck.

First, obviously, put gas back in the tank.
Check the fuel pump fuse, (20 amp yellow fuse in the lower left corner of the group). If that is not blown, turn the key on and pound hard on the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, once it runs dry, the pump can lock up. Once the pump is immersed in fuel again, a sharp jolt will unstick it and let it pump up to pressure again. If it locks up for too long, the pump will burn out and need replaced.
We found this out by accident, got mad and pounded on the bottom of the tank and the pump jumped to life.
