After filling gas tank car wont start what could be problem?

If car was running normally just before filling tank, most likely fuel pump. If car is gas petrol and not diesel, to test bad fuel pump spray starting fluid in air filter box. If car starts and immediately stops is bad pump. If car still dosent start even with starting fluid be several possibilities; bad battery, starter, alternator, ignotion switch / key tumbler, or bad fuses. Battery, starter, alternator can be tested for free if can get to auto parts store, or aftermarket products like from harbor freight. If those still good check related fuses. If all good then to ignition switch problem which unless you are fully competent mechanic needs to be done by a professional

My 2004 chevy cavalier ran out of gas and now won't start back up

Sometimes it takes awhile to prime itself trying again never hurt. the other thing that is possible is that the tank bottom had contaminates in it which were sucked up into the line when it was so low. these can get caught anywhere in the fuel line. I would get a new fuel filter(good to change anyways) the debris or contaminates would likely get trapped there where it is suppose too. it could have stopped it up. if you dont have the 10 -20 bucks for a new filter you can still pull it and try to free the debris by rinsing it with gas the opposite way and reuse. worse case scenario you may need a new fuel pump.. could have burned it up. it happens.. or the debris was large enough to stop it up. either way it sucks because replacing them are never fun. good luck

Seems like out of gas but has gas but wont start.

Spray starter fluid into intake, if it starts then stops again, you have a fuel problem. If it still won't start you have a spark problem

My 96 crown vic police interceptor, cranks won't start without spraying starter fluid.. the car won't start without spraying starter fluid into air intake hose to carb...

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

Car has gas but won't start. Sprayed starter

the most likely reason is a failed fuel pump, plugged fuel filter or defective fuel regulator-you need to have the fuel line pressure tested-you can get the use (free) of a guage set from most commercial auto parts stores.

Gas not getting to the carburator. Starter turns

Check all of the fuel lines very carefully for breaks or cracks in the fuel lines, especially between the fuel tank and the fuel pump.

If the fuel lines are all in good condition then you can safely assume that the problem is in the fuel pump and you will need to replace it. (If the fuel pump is in really bad shape the engine oil on the end of the engine oil dip-stick will smell like fuel)
