    i do hear it turning over, but it won't start or run. it started and ran after i put about a gallon of gas in, but shut off a few seconds later. i put more gas in, but now it won't start at all. it is turning over though.

    You will need to replace the fuel pump and fuel filter. When the tank goes dry, the pump overheats and gets damaged when it is trying to pump air.

    "It won't turn over at all" means you hear nothing when you turn the key. Is this the case, or do you hear it turning over but just not starting and running?

It is very bad to let your car run out of gas. You may need to give it exessive amount of gas when starting it.

Fuel line; filter... calcium build-up can cause this issue. It sounds like there may also be a loose connection via the wire chassis.

Ran completely out of gas last week - put gas in - car started fine- ran a little rough and idled rough. Now 10 days later MIL light on in dash and perform service message. Won't go out after several


have the fuel filter changed and have the computer checked for codes incase something else is going on and they can be cleared to turn off the light.any dirt in the lines should be out of them by now.its possible that there is dirt in the injectors and a fuel system service should be done to clean them which is a recomended service on all cars anyways.you can have the fuel pressure checked while its in the shop to make sure the pressure is within specs.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
