If it is not turning over could be the battery or starter or bad battery cables. That has to be determined and fixed before you can go to the "It is not getting any gas" problem

I can't get gas to go in my bmw 323i convertible, help? The gas cap is very hard to get off now and the pump won't suction on when I try to put gas in.

1. Unlock the gas cap. Slip the key into the slot on the center of the cap with the teeth toward the outer circle. 2. Turn the key clockwise. The lock cylinder gives and allows the key to move. 3. Turn the gas cap counterclockwise. Unscrew the cap...------------------------------------------------------------------------------

While I am driving my Nissan Quest I am pressing the gas pedal and all of a sudden it is not getting gas, I have to keep pushing on it and it will finally get gas, or I have to put it in nuetral while...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Your fuel pump may be going bad. It is possible. When you turn the key on, you can hear it for a second or two. So, when you turn the key on, it is at its strongest during those two seconds. It explains the gas working when you turn it off and turn it back on. Gas goes from the tank to the fuel pump, from the pump to the fuel filter, through the filter to the gas lines, from the lines to the fuel injectors and the engine. That is your gas system. It could be a clogged fuel filter or damaged lines. Check them all. A fuel filter is around 20 dollars and a fuel pump could cost 125-235 dollars. Your pump may be in the gas tank. In order to check it, you have to take the tank off. Try the filter first. If you have any questions, let me know. Thanks for using FixYa and have a good evening.

Won't start its like its not getting gas. I can turn the key and pump on the gas it will rev up and shut off. I thought it was the fuel pump so I changed it and that didn't solve the problem what else can...

maybe its bad gas, or an idle issue. you shouldnt have to pump the gas when you start that can actually lead to flooding the engine with gas. Turn the key on and wait about 30 secs before cranking this will ensure your getting proper amount of gas to injector lines. It may take a bit to get rid of gas in there but keep doing it until it starts properly. Also note in doing this do not continuously crank it as the starter and solenoid will fry. Also if you fear there is no gas going to engine look for a gas line bleeder valve. Looks like a tire valve head and usually is covered with a black plastic lid. If you push it in and gas squirts out then your getting gas to engine. If you release all gas and turn the key on and test gas line again and no gas comes out then its what is called a dry start, aka no gas getting to motor. Hence failure of fuel filter or fuel pump. Or a general clog in gas line.

1996 cheve lumina . gas pump, when I turn the key

When the key is turned to ignition there is a "Prime" mode that the computer rnus. the pump will only run for a few short seconds. If you crank the engine you should get power to fuel pump the entire time you crank the engine.

After running out of gas wont start

after you put gas in it did you prime the system?

when the gas runs out it drains the fuel lines, so after you put gas in the tank you will need to prime the system. To do this turn the key on to run but don't crank the starter and count to three, then key off and out. Do that three to four times and that should take care of getting gas to the engine.

Make sure you can hear the fuel pump turn on when you turn the key on. Sometimes when you run low on gas it can overheat the fuel pump causing it to fail.
