Did you put at least 3 gallons in?

    There's usually garbage such as rust at the bottom of your fuel tank, and running out drags it into the fuel line. The three gallon suggestion is a good start (so to speak) but if you still can't start the engine you might have to remove the fuel tank and take out the tank unit for a clean. There's a rubber seal around it so if it's original this will probably need to be replaced.

    Sorry it posted Before I was ready. You will want to test it first: Remove the top from your carburettor and make sure there's fuel getting to it. If it's not full, the fuel line is likely blocked or by some coincidence the fuel pump happens to have failed at the exact same moment.

Make sure you have added at least several gallons of fuel. If it still doesn't start, check the fuel pump pressure at the front of the engine. Some fuel pumps will burn out very easily if they are run out of fuel, especially if you tried to crank the engine several times when there was no fuel in it, (the fuel cools the fuel pump, and if the tank is empty, - no fuel to cool the pump, and the pump burns out)

Dont touch the gas pedal or it might flood and not start. Have someone spray a little starting fluid in the Air filter tube while you try to start it.

Turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump to prime, you ran out of gas, if it was weak to begin with that may have finished it.

Ran out of gas......


Sounds like fuel pump burned out when you ran out of gas. probably ran dry for about 20 sec till engine quit. Check for power to fuel pump in tank.Most likely fuel pump will need replacement . Hope this helps

93 mercury villager ran out of gas. filled with gas will not star


When you ran it out of gas you may have ruined the fuel pump. They are very touchy. you can check it by having someone listen under the car by the fuel tank and you turn the key to the on position, be sure not to try and start it. When you turn the key to the on position you should hear the pump prime its self. If you dont the pump is bad if you do then you might look into the fuel filter it may have gotten clogged when it ran out of gas.
