Question about Cars & Trucks
Have been trying all day to do the bump starter move filling the filter through the outer holes. It will fire for les than 30 sec and then choke out
Make sure its on correctly... some filters only flow one way. check to make sure you didnt inadvertantly disconect the fuel pump or pressure regulator. (you should be able to hear the fuel pump hum for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to on)

sounds like the dreaded renault immobiliser ,in which case its dealer only as software encrypted.whats happening is the immobiliser is stopping it from starting when key is in start position cranking but it will go with a bump as starter motor key position not activated .try a wire from battery to small connector on starter motor .if it starts which i think it will then you know what to do ...old fashioned way with a push button.but are you getting prepared to lay the golden egg ???just in case

yep i seen it in happen .i was at a gas station a guy drove car to the gas station on empty.he fill his tank up .could not get it to crank .some cars you have to restart fuel pump when run out of gas. like chrysler.you use a scanner. but chervrolet you run low over heat damage the pump.it has to stay submerge gas to keep it cool. check fuel pump pressure.it should be 41 - 47 psi.

Are you getting good spark? Fuel pump? I know you changed your fuel filters, but can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key just one click - (not all the way to start it)? OR
"There are quite a few things that might be causing your problem but the first thing I would do is have your electrical system checked out. Sometimes a bad alternator can stop charging your battery and cause this kind of problem. Even though the battery has enough voltage to turn things on it might not have enough to start the car. Most auto parts stores will test your electrical system for free. You can also check your battery cable connections and terminals. If they are corroded or loose it can cause this type of problem. There are other things that it could be but that is the most likely."
