If you ran the car out of gas it could be the fuel pump.

Where is crankshaft position sensor located 1996 gmc sierra 1500


The crankshaft position sensor is located on the right-side (passenger side) of the engine. At the rear of the engine, behind the starter. You need to remove the starter to remove the crank sensor. Remember to disconnect the battery first. The starter can short against the cross member.

1991 S-10, will crank but wont start


You say it is getting gas, do you know for sure that gas is getting past the injectors ? And do you have normal fuel pressure, compression, and spark at the plugs ?

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.

I have a 92 firebird v6 it runs and drives when givin gas it starts stalling know it wont start


I take it the car ran and just died and now wont start at all?

Can you hear the fuel pump run for about 2 seconds when the key is first turned to ON?

Is there a security light on in the dash? Does the engine turn over/ starter working?

Check for spark. Pull the coil wire from the cap and place it close to a ground (may need a screw driver placed in the end) like an intake manifold bolt. Don't make it touch the ground, just place it close. Crank the engine over and watch for spark.

Any spark?

Check these and come back and comment with some answers and I should have an idea of where to help you further.

My wife ran car out of gas and then ran battery dead trying to start it. Now car will turn over but wont catch and start. Any ideas what the problem is?


The fuel pump is cooled by the very fuel it pumps. Without fuel to keep it cool it can simply burn out; especially if it has been running during a lengthy attempt to restart. Pump function can be tested by loosening the Shrader (car tire type valve) valve fuel rail on the engine whilst the pump is running and seeing the fuel squirt out. If no fuel squirts then replace the pump.

1995 Pontiac Firebird, V8, will not start, just cranks. I tapped the fuel tank as the key was engine was turning and it almost started, but didn't. It has gas, is it the fuel pump?


Spray some starter fluid in the breather to see if it starts. if it does then that is a fuel related problem. If it doesn't that will be electrical.

MUTIPORT FUEL INJECTION PONTIAC FIREBIRD 3.1


My 92 Bird with the 3.1 did the same thing after it sat for about 2 months. The car had aways started right away before. I had to jump start it and I thought it would never start.Same as yours after it started. Seem to get better after I ran it awhile. It was getting good spark and was getting fuel. I checked fuel pressure, it seemed to be within specs.then it started to sputter and the pressure dropped to almost nothing. Seems that the fuel pump was going bad, but still would pump enough fuel at times to run. When the car was parked the fuel pressure would bleed off, and when I tried to start it the pump had trouble pumping enough fuel to pressure the system.Long story short! Replace the fuel pump, and filter.....

99 fire bird wont start


Sounds like the fuel pump is bad. You need to test fuel pressure. I can tell you the fuel pressure spec, but what year is it 89 or 99? And what engine?
