You should be able to just cycle the key on and off about 3 or 4 times. Your electric pump should do all of the work for you.

Most likely air in the fuel system. Is there a primer button to push? If not, you will have to continually pull the cord to get it started and expell the air.In some cases, the fuel line will need to e disconnected and primed with fuel.

Ran out of gas .Car wont start.Chrysler Neon 2L Automatic.Where exactly is the fuel tank located?

The fuel tank is tucked up underneathe the chassis mid-body. What your problem is is that when you ran out of gas the injection system sucked in air. Your fuel system needs to be primed to get the air out.

I ran out of gas. When I put gas in the tank the car wont start. What do I do?

hopefully all you need to prime the system
just turn the key on for 5 not crank and then turn the key off 5-10 times

each time you do this listen for the fuel should hear a whining noise
if you do not hear the whining noise then you killed your fuel pump when you ran out of gas

do you drive often below 1/4 tank?

My '88 Ford E-150 van (dual tanks) ran out of gas. Now it won't restart with either tank. How do I re-prime the system?

the easiest way is to take off the air filter top, and have someone turn the engine over while you SLOWLY (like out of the air hole in a gas can) pour gas into the carburetor (carefully...) have them press slightly on the gas pedal. It could take a couple minutes of pouring, but It will prime the gas lines. Stop when it will run on its own

After running out of gas wont start

after you put gas in it did you prime the system?

when the gas runs out it drains the fuel lines, so after you put gas in the tank you will need to prime the system. To do this turn the key on to run but don't crank the starter and count to three, then key off and out. Do that three to four times and that should take care of getting gas to the engine.

Make sure you can hear the fuel pump turn on when you turn the key on. Sometimes when you run low on gas it can overheat the fuel pump causing it to fail.
