Question about 2000 Subaru Outback

1 Answer

Car won't start

I was low on fuel driving to a local gas station when my car shut down. I put it in a few gallons of fuel but it would not not start. The engine was turning over, there was spark from the spark plugs, and fuel was coming from gas tank to fuel filter. I wonder if there is some kind of reset switch?

The fuel injector is bad. For an injector driven car you should always make sure that you have fuel in your tank.

Drive in to a garage and let the injector be cleaned of possible dirt or serviced if not totally damaged.

Be carefulnext time.

Land rover gas tank won't fill,

Why won't my car stay running after it ran out of gas


Most newer cars are very sensitive to being ran low on gas. The fuel pump is in the tank and relies on fuel to cool it down. Your fuel pump is now probably not pumping the required pressure for the fuel injection system to work properly (or at all).

You have most likely sucked residue in the bottom of the fuel tank into your fuel filter, This can cause it to get blocked, Try fitting a replacement fuel filter as it's most likely it's never been changed anyway.

What brand of gas is the best for a 2003 nissan sentra. Is chevron a safe choice?


some prefer a name brand although I always fill up after 8 AM in the morning at my local station. The reason is the tanks are filled at 7AM at the station I go to giving me the satisfaction no moister from a very low underground tank will get into my gas tank when I fill up. All fuel tanks receive moister in their tanks. The tanks are electronicly read from inside the filling station. They have alarms that sound if too much moister is inside and shut the picticular tanks pump down. Some times they do not shut down for many reasons. One is a over ride switch incase that tank is the only one left with fuel in it especially on a holiday weekend. It has happened to me a few times causing my car to throw codes from the computer and also stalling out a few miles from the gas station after filling the vehicle up. That is why I choose to fill up mine after the station gets their fill up

Car shut off a couple times while just driving down the road


Signs the fuel pump maybe getting bad you local autoparts store like autozone,advance auto parts, murrays may have a tool you can get on loan to presser check the system similar to checking the air in your tires if the gauge reads low you know your answer and it will be cheaper then a shop checking it

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

Car won't start


Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..

2004 nissan titan...ran out of gas


Good chance that even on 4 gallons it may not start I would try for more, prime the fuel pump several times by turning the key on and leaving it on for around 5 seconds then shutting it off and repeating, obviously not trying to start. I've had cases where even small FWD cars won't start even on 4 gallons on a 12 gallon tank. The newer fuel pumps are a closed system that only allow a small portion of fuel into the pump housing to keep contamination down. Let me know if after adding a few more gallons it won't start we will trouble shoot from there. Thank you for using fixya.com
