Ran out of gas in 98 ford explorer sport. Put in 1 1/2 gallons gas more or less. Won't start. Answers/ hints?


Old fuel pumps don't like running out of gas. Hit the bottom of the tank near the center a few times. If it starts replace the fuel pump.

Car wont start after running out of gas


The fuel pump in this car is inside the gas tank, it is cooled by the fuel it sits in and also gets its lubrication from the fuel, when you ran out of gas you most likely damaged the fuel pump. Make sure you put at least 3 gallons of gas int the tank before you try and start it or the pump may not prime.

I hava a 1992 pontiac grand am . I replaced the fuel tank and the fuel pump. It trys to start but it will not run. It is like it is getting some gas but not enough to start.


Put at least 5 gallons of gas in the tank. Most tank baffles won't let 1 or 2 gallons get to the pump.
Before you do that, go back and make sure everything is hooked up, and no rotten rubber lines at tank and evap connections. If you didn't already, change the fuel filter.

Wont start after it ran out of gas after I filled it with gas


Cycle the key several times to the run position and then back to the off position to try to bleed the air out it. Let it sit for about 30 seconds between cycles. How much fuel did you put in the tank. I would say that you need to put at least 2 gallons in it. You may need to change your fuel filter. When you ran it our of fuel you clould have picked up crud off the bottom of the tank and plugged the filter. You mave have damaged the fuel pump. Remove your gas cap and have a helper turn the key to the run position not start position. You should hear your pump buzzing. If you don't hear it I would suspect that something is wrong.

I ran out of gas and i put gas in it and now it wont start i thought it might have froze but i have it in garage with heater now it starts but i have 2 pedal it 2 keep it running then it dies and wont...


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.

I ran out of gas and now it wont start


Put at least 2 gallons of gas in the tank. Now with your fist or a big rubber hammer beat on the bottom of the fuel tank while some one is holding the key in start position. I have gotten lucky with this in the past to get the electric fuel pump to run long enough to get home. The fuel pump and filter may need replaced due to age. Just ask if you need to know how.

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.
