Question about Cars & Trucks
Running out of gas is a real pain,but your pump would not fail because of this only. If you often run the tank low on fuel it will cause premature pump failure because the fuel cools the fuel pump! I suggest you check to see if you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail. If you have fuel pressure(20 to 40 psi) then check fuel volume,(about 1 pint in 30 seconds) If you have pressure but no volume your filter is most likely resricted. One easy way to check the pump is to have someone turn the ingition switch from off to run, with the fuel door open put your ear to the filler inlet and listen for the pump to run. it should run for about 3 seconds If you dont hear the pump running check the fuse and relay for the pump.If it is running replace your fuel filter(much cheaper than a pump and wont hurt to replace anyway). Hope this helps Bill

If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, you may need to replace the distributer. I don't think the bad gas caused this issue I think it may just be a coincdence. But if you already changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor, I would definetly check the distributor.

sounds like fuel pump pressure. I had the same thing happen to me in a Lincoln mark VII and the electrical connection was shorting out in the fuel pump. I changed the fuel pump..Returned under warranty) put the new one on with filter and had no problem with it.

I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.

replaced your fuel pump and when you buy it make sure to replace the oil sending sensor on the fuel pump it comes with a replacement when you purchase a new fuel pump
