Running low on gas is detrimental to the electronic in tank pump...the gasoline is actually the coolant and the pump running not submerged in fuel can make it run hot and fail...especially if its doused with cold fuel while refilling...almost like pouring cold water on a hot glass...ck fuel pressure.....pump will run for 3 seconds with key on/engine off which can be heard in a quiet place...if it sounds funky like a squeelish noise or not heard at all ...it could be toast...sorry

Cheapest route is your fuel filter...you might have gunked it up! Try replacing your filter first.

I Let my chevy Blazer run out of gas,nw it wont start even though the relay and fuelpump is working.


Is it electric or mechanical pump? Electric is with fuel injection. If its fuel injection, you should hear the pump run when you turn ignition switch. If u don't hear it, try starting, if no, turn off then on. It will self prime. Carburetor is with mechanical pump. I usually put few drops of gas in the carb. Start it, if no, more in carb till it stays running.

Car wont start, turns over fine but theres no feed of gas to carb


take your distributor cap off and check the ignition module for loose wires or even a ground strap thats connected to the engine to the body , you can take the module to autozone and have it checked for free, it might have a crank position sensor thats going wacky

Engine wont start without priming with gas first, then runs well


i have the same problem on a 98 jimmy 4.3 4x4.
i replaced the fule pump and have good pressure.
new wiers & coil (good spark) no MIL & no codes.
will only start when primed. it will run & drive all day
with no problems.
but once it has been turned off (warm or cold) i will
have to prime it once again to start it.
i have another engine that was in it before it spun a bearing.
it ran fine so i know all parts are good.
i swaped the mass air flow and throttle body but i still have
to prime it everytime to start it. am i forgetting something?
should i swap out the intake with the injectors?
any help would be sweet. thanks.

Cannot get 1987 chevy van 20 to keep running... stalls out


Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.
