Car stalled and won't start again

2000 hyundai elantra, 135,000 miles Stalled at light shortly after I ran gas down pretty far and refueled it. Engine turns and sounds normal when turning key. It just doesn't want to start. I thought maybe fuel pump, however after I turned the key several times I smelled gas so I have no idea.

    What do you think an honest mechanic would charge to have all that done @ $50/hour? Thank you, that was very helpful.

Hello, this may be a bad fuel filter becuase if you ran your fuel real low you may have sucked some corrosion or rust into your system. You may need to purge your system of air through a fuel pressure valve which is near your throttle body. Be careful however when pressing this valve with a screwdriver becuase fuel pressure can puncture your skin. I would replace your fuel filter, and fresh gas, bleed your fuel system, and possibly replace your spark plugs and this should help you. If this does not work you probaly have a bad filter on your fuel pump in your tank there is a like a little sock on the end of that fuel pump which can give inadequate amounts of fuel to your system becuase of it being clogged. Thank You.

I have a chevy s10 2.2 2003 truck and one day it ran about five miles. then stalled. it started back up idled fine but put it in gear. stalled again. had to get towed home replaced the fuel filter,truck...


When you press on the gas when the truck is running, does it rev up?

Did it die while driving down the road (foot on the accelerator) or when idle? - If so, try cranking it and get your RPMs up to 1500-2000 RPMs and put it in drive (with your other foot on the brake). See if it will continue running if you never take your foot off the gas.

Sounds like it might be either the fuel filter or the fuel pump, cause if you ran the tank down, you probably had sludge in the bottom of the tank that you sucked into the engine, you can try using a fuel system cleaner, you may have sucked sludge into the injectors running it, Zmax sells a fuel system cleaner, or there is one called RUN RIGHT, I would try putting some of that in letting it sit a few min then after it sat a few to soak in and break down the sludge, then start the car up, kick your idle up to around 1500 RPM do not go higher then that cause you will damage the engine, try that and see if that works for you, if not then I is probably the fuel pump or filter.
hope this helps.
