Question about 1999 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

Ran out of gas, engine shut down. added more gas. will not start

My wife ran out of gas going 35 mph. Truck shut itself off and she managed to get the truck off the road safely. We added 8 gallons of gas and now the truck wont start. Engine cranks but wont fire. Sounds odd.

    I accidentally allowed my gas to run out or almost run out (not sure). At this time, suddenly my reliable 1988 Toyota Corolla with a 4A-FE engine won't start. It turns over fine. Sounds like it wants to start. I added one gallon of gas via a gas can, but the car still doesn't start. Should I try adding one more gallon before having it towed to a mechanic? Any suggestions greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Engine will just shut down while driving

if it dies on you again, unplug the MAP sensor and plug it back in and see if it starts. If it starts then the MAP sensor needs to be replaced.
