Fuel pump is not running (if electric) or floats stuck. Outside of those, hole in fuel line, possibly even line in tank. My old one had a sight glass on the float bowl where you could see if fuel was in it.

On way to gas station car stopped, not quite out of gas but almost. push her to station and fill her up. Car still will not start. She acts like she wants to turn over and maybe like she is not getting...


Let her sit for a little while. Then, turn the car to the "run" position, and assuming you have an electronic fuel pump, it will begin to prime itself (Because you probably lost prime when it ran out of fuel). Keep doing this about 5-10 times, leaving it in the "Run" position for 20 seconds. If you have a mechanical fuel pump, however (you will know because turning the key to "on" with the blower motor off makes no noise, unless it's the electronic fan), you will just have to keep cranking, letting the starter cool back down, and repeating until it fires off.

I think i ran my mustang gt out of gas,i just got this car today from a good friend.It was idling in the drive way and then died without warning so i think it ran out of gas according to the guage!I put...


You need to make sure you put in AT LEAST 2 gallons of gas, more if the car is not level. It might take a few cycles of the key to get the fuel line primed again. A full cycle is Off-On-Start. When you turn the key to on, listen for the fuel pump. It should run for a few seconds and then shut off, turn the key to start for a few seconds and then back to off... This will have to be repeated several times. You should be able to hear the fuel pump from the drivers seat. I will be a faint hum or hiss coming from the back seats.

83 nissan 720 pick-up, fuel pump went out replaced ran good for a few days and stopped again. had no power to pump. so I replaced fuel pump relay switch & pump work great. I have gas to the sight bowl,...


You say you replaced the fuel pump relay switch? The fuel pump relay is located in the passenger compartment on the right side under the dash. Little black box with a 6 pin plug. Replace that and your power to the pump should be restored . Had this happen on mine just last week. The relay actually monitors the alternator, key switch and a couple of fuses and will remove power from the pump if there is a fault. AutoZone stock number is 20550, costs about $50.

I HAVE A AUDI A6 2.8 PETROL MANUAL. I RECENTLY RAN OUT OF PETROL AND NOW EVEN AFTER PUTTING 15 LITRES IN THE TANK IT STILL WONT START


try quick start to get it started. Alot of times when you run out of fuel the pump looses its prime. If you cant get it started you may of overheated the fuel pump by allowing it to run dry. Try smacking the gas tank hard a few times, this sometimes frees up the pump if its stuck.

Where is my fuel pump at? on a 1995 chevy camero 3.4 yes ran the car out of gas put so in wont start now what should i do first


Your fuel pump is in the tank. Turn on the ignition, and listen if you can hear the pump run in the tank. It will only run a few seconds if the engine is not running. You can repeat this several times to prime the fuel injection.

Ran out of gas and not getting gas to carberator after adding gas


Hello there:
If you have tried priming the fuel pump by turning on the key and listening for the fuel pump to be running if it is it may just need to be primed with a hand priming pump untill you get fuel
but if you still dont get any fuel i would check out the fuel filter to see if it is clogged and needs to be replaced
to locate the fuel pump and filter go under the drivers side and look at the frame of the vehical not quite half way back and you will see the fuel filter and just in front of this about 10 inches towards the engine will be the fuel pump ok>
best regards michael

Where is the fuel filter located in 1984 Toyota Cressida


The fuel filter is in the engine compartment, rear of passenger side.

You may have prime the pump:
remove the gas cap, underhood, loosen a fuel connector, wrap the loosened connector with a shop rag to catch the fuel and crank the starter a few seconds, do not let the engine run. Check the rag for fuel, if gasoline has been delivered: Tighten the connector and fuel tank cap, properly dispose of the rag.
