I beleive the fuel pump is in the gas tank, have someone go back to the gas tank and someone else turn the key on, if the pump is good you should hear it working, if you cant then youve probably burned the fuel pump up. When you run them completly dry of fuel it only takes about 1.5 seconds to burn the electric fuel pumps up.
Good luck.

Ran out of gas other day leaving work, grabbed a gas can out of shop. Didn't realize there was diesel fuel in there. Not much, less than 1/2 gallon. Drove about 1/4 mile and van died. Had to tow it home....


you are gonna have to purge the diesel out i would think. most likely its still in the fuel lines. is there a pressure test port on the intake? if so cover it with a rag and vent the line a few times after pressurising it up by turning the key on

MY 2005 DODGE CARAVAN WANT LET PUT IN BUT TEN GALLONS OF GAS. AFTER THAT IT CUTS THE PUMP OFF.


This is most likely an issue with your vapor evap system. As it gets worse you may also get jerking in the driveline from insufficient fuel flow which will damage the transmission, and you may hear the gas tank pop. I recommend getting it fixed by a mechanic, but if you can't and the gas tank is popping, you can get by for awhile by cutting the O-ring off of your gas cap, it's ghetto but i ran my Sable like that for over 3 months.

I have a 1999 Dodge Caravan. When the gas gauge is just above the E it will stall out. It doesn't matter if I am on the freeway or driving around town. We put fuel injecter fluid in and it didn't help.The...


Your gauge is reading high ... I think you are out of gas. You should calculate your actual Miles Per Gallon - find out what the capacity of your tank is and fill accordingly. For esample, you actually get 15 miles per gallon, your tank is 20 gallons - you should be able to drive about 300 miles between fillups. At 250 miles, start looking for a station.

I have a 1993 volvo 240 ran out of gas fuel pump and filter are less than 1 year old i put gas into it and it cranks and want to start but it doesn't. i put 6 gallons of gas any advice


It depends on how far you ran it out of fuel. If you ran it until it would not run any more and then tried to start it again several times; you may need to bleed and prime the fuel system to get it started. You start at the line coming from the tank and move toward the fuel injectors. You have to loosen a fitting and have someone pump fuel until the air bubbles stop and then tighten. A friend once worked for two hours to get his tractor started after his daughter ran it out of fuel. This is why they recommend that you do not run a fuel injected car out of fuel and if you do to turn it off as soon as it starts to miss badly.

Have you put a pressure gauge on and then drive to see if pressure drops. If it does it is likely the pump. Sometimes these problems lead to it being the computer.
