Running a vehicle completely out of fuel is not the best thing for them. Any trash or debris that might have accumulated inside of the tank then has the chance of getting sucked thru the fuel pump and into the fuel filter. If you are lucky installing a new fuel filter will get you running again.

SOURCE: car stalling after turns on, dies while driving

First of all you should check your transimision fluid in your gearbox, if the car is automatic, and refill until the proper sign.
Utherwise you should check the clutch if it works properly, maybe you have to adjust the clutches gap.

If it is the alternator, you will have a dead battery too. Have you charged the battery to see if it will allow you to get to a parts store and have the charging system tested? I would do to that before tearing into the alternator and spending the big bucks. Taking the alternator out is not a big deal, two bolts to loosen and the wires in the back to unhook - after you take the ( -) wire off the battery. Keep the wire connections straight for hooking up later. To get the alternator belt loose, you will need to loosen the adjustment screw until the belt can be pulled off the pulley. Good luck

SOURCE: rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas

it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

SOURCE: car stalls

the problem sounds like it is not getting enough of fuel. check or replace fuel filter to see if this helps, also make sure fuel pump is pumping the fuel at the right pressure. have pressure checked if need be. if not enough fuel a vehicle will run at idle, but stall under pressure.

Ran fine, shut off. Came back out, turned over but not start. Had jump started twice but put in gear and died. Question: I know low on gas, can this effect anything?

Possibly a fuel supply issue. Will require a fuel pressure tester. Could be in tank pump or a bad fuel pump relay. In a quiet environment, turn key on (not start position ) and listen if you can hear the guel pump run for 1 or 2 seconds.

2000 Cadillac ran out of gas I put gas in it and battery died I got a jump and it still won't start

if you ran out of gas this will not cause a battery to go dead. you may have a charging problem causing the car to run only off of the battery voltage until the battery was too low to run the ignition system and died.

Your battery might be discharged, perhaps your alternator is damaged. If your battery contacts are loose, try cleaning and tightening them.

My 92 maxima se just died as i was driving it.i put gas in it and it ran for 2 miles then died again

could be a fuel pump. hammer on the gas tank and see if it tries to start. if not then spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air intake and see if it starts and runs for a few seconds if so your looking at a bad fuel pump most likely.

My mercury mystique ran out of gas I put gas in it but wont start

Turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump to prime, you ran out of gas, if it was weak to begin with that may have finished it.

92 Nissan Stanza sputtering and stall

You may have frozen fuel lines. Sounds like not enough fuel is getting to the engine. You may need to bleed the system and change fuel pump, fuel filter and check the injectors

This sounds like a carburated car and you have a sticking automatic choke.
