Fuel pump is burned out from running out of gas, the pump is cooled by the gas it sits in inside the fuel tank, when you run low on fuel or out of gas you over heat the pump severely and the bearings in the pump seize up, have seen it dozens of times in my 30 years of dealer work.

I had same problem and after very expensive trips to kia garage putting it on the computers etc it turned out to be the fuel filter. worth changing as only £25 and may save you £100s.

The first thing that you should do is to check and make sure that you have fuel pressure. It is very possbile that your fuel pump gave out as a result of running low on gas. Gasoline in the fuel tank helps to cool the pump.

My GMC Sierra ran out of gas and now I can't get it to stay running.


Fuel injectors require a high pressure fuel pump which is located in the gas tank. The gas serves as the lubricant for the pump, so wen you ran out and emptied the tank completely you no longer had lubricant and the pump burn out. It won't pump gas now because it's the fuel pump is burned out and needs replacing. It runs when you put fuel in the injectors as that bypasses the pump. Replace the pump and the never let the tank get below 1/8th full (half a 1/4 of a tank).Not lie the old low pressure fuel pumps on the side of the engine blocks. Not cheap to buy a fuel pump and have to drop the tank to replace the burned out one. $$$ in costs even it you do it yourself.

Will start but won't stay running


Try changing the fuel filter. Chances are when it ran out of gas it sucked all the old gunk and stuff into the lines. If that doesn"t work you may have to take it to a professional to have the gunk sucked out. Also after you change the filter dump some fuel injector cleaner into the tank that should clean up any remaining residue.

Why won't my car stay running after it ran out of gas


Most newer cars are very sensitive to being ran low on gas. The fuel pump is in the tank and relies on fuel to cool it down. Your fuel pump is now probably not pumping the required pressure for the fuel injection system to work properly (or at all).

I have a 04 g35 it ran our of gas and cut off now it wouldn't stay on


try replacing the fuel filter. it's not a good idea to run your car that low on gas , also you can hit the tank fuel tank with the palm of your hand this SOMETIMES jars the fuel pump and makes it work again..

04 kia sedona 89,000 miles Was running fine until I ran out of gas. Filled up and now it has no power and can't go over 35mph but rpms are high and it used a whole tank of fuel in under a few hou


It won't run right at all, if you have huge vacuum leaks,
from the converter being loose

The O2 Sensors won't report back the correct oxygen
content in the exhaust

Then the fuel injector timing will be out of wack

I'm not against people working on there own cars &
learning the hard way. I would encourge it,just read
up on OBD2 Systems first, so you don't put problems
in ,when your trying to get other ones out.

I would check for codes at the parts store, if you have any
dash lights on.
Then spend an any hours labor at a local repair shop to
help you understand what happened with your present

My 2003 kia sedona ran out of gas. Now after adding gas i can not get it to start. HELP


You might have a fuel pump problem after running out of gas. Fuel pumps use gasoline to stay cool, and when there is no gas they can overheat. Also, a good way to tell if your fuel pump is running, is to turn the key to the "run position" ( right before the car starts) and listen for a humming/buzzing sound coming from the fuel tank.

Starts but wont stay running


Check your gas filter. When you ran out of gas, you got any rust in your lines and filters. Change the inline filter and use an air compressor and blow the line TOWARDS THE TANK. Take the gas cap off first. There is also a filter in your tank.By blowing the line you may unstop that filter.

1987 IROC, Ran out of gas,put gas in, now service engine light on


if you have high milieage you may have sucked in the gunk on the botton of your tank when you ran out of fuel check if you can hear the fuel pump running for about 2 sec with key on engine off if you hear nothing the problem is with your pump as they will burn out if they run dry for too long,if you hear the pump check for fuel pressure if pressure low check fuel filter to see if clogged by gunk from bottom of tank.

Check engine light inside gas tank making a noise


Don't know if it'll help, but, my 2002 Sportage's check engine light came on when I put gas in it and stayed on until I ran out all of that tank full. I asked at that station if anything had been added to their fuel, and after a lot of hee hawing, they admitted they were adding ethanol! So, watch where you buy gas!!
