Start a car after it has run out of gas?

Is priming the line the only way to start a Camry if the pump is dry? It has fuel in the tank. Car is parked with the rear down hill. Starter and fuel pump are audible when turning the key.

Myself I would Hit The intake with some starting fluid but have some water close bye if needed...Now Crank the Camry and see if it starts ..if it does then dies then I know i have ignition and fuel starvation is the cause ...Remember Intake Air And Gas, Compression Of Air And Gas, Ignition of Air And Gas, Exhaust of Combustion..!! Tell me if What the ECM is saying to you, How The Fuel Pressure At The Rail..?? If Camry Does Not Start With Ether Starting Fluid Then I would Have To Think In Line of Compression And Ignition..!! Has The Car Triggerd A Interisia Switch Or is The Oil Level in the Engine So Low The Car Has No Ignition Because the ECM Wont Power The Coil Pack..?? Just Thinking of Questions...???

If you ran the car empty it really only needs at least a gallon even on a hill it will start. Sometimes it takes 2-3 key cycles for full prime. If its still not starting you could have low fuel pressure , fuel pump could be faulty

Start a Camry after it ran completely out of gas. Does the fuel pump fill the line when tank is filled & key turned?


Your fuel pump is located inside the gas tank and every time you turn on the ignition switch the fuel pump will start and pressurize the fuel line for a regular starting cycle. But, since your fuel lines are totally empty. I would turn on the ignition for a 20 second period. then turn it off for a few minutes to let the system fuel system reset and then turn the key back on for the same amount of time and do this for at least 4 times. Each time you turn on the key if you have waited long enough to allow the fuel system to reset. This will in the end fill the fuel lines and fuel rail on the engine and then you should be able to crank the engine and start ok. do not crank the engine until after you have cycled the ignition key about four times and wait about 2 minutes in-between cycles.
Have a nice day, regards, Dennis

Car shuts off as if starved of fuel remove fuel line and prime car starts


There's a fuel pump relay that turns on the fuel pump, as you turn on the ignition before the engine starts, to prime and pressurize the injectors. I'd check the relay it may not be operating.

Where is the fuel cutoff switch located for 1998 nissan pathfinder


Reseting the fuel pump kill switch.

Before you reset the fuel pump, make sure to read all of the following instructions!!!!!

            • MAKE SURE YOU HAVE GAS IN YOUR TANK! IF IT IS EMPTY, THE FUEL PUMP MIGHT NOT NEED TO BE RESET, IT ****** ****** MIGHT ONLY NEED TO BE PRIMED, PUT AT LEAST TWO GALLONS IN THE TANK AND SKIP TO "Step 4". ******

1.) Look for an access panel in the trunk, driver's side; it might even be labeled "Fuel Pump Reset".

2.) Open the compartment and press the red button. This should reset the pump.

3.) At this point it might be a good idea to "burp" the fuel tank. This will probably be the easiest thing you do all day! Just pop the cover and unscrew the gas cap, this will release any preasure built up inside the tank. As long as you're in a controled environment, go ahead and leave the cap open until you finish "Step 4". Otherwise "burp" it a couple of times while you're priming the lines.

4.) The next step is to prime the pump. In other words, make sure there is enough gas in the fuel lines to start the car. The easiest way to do this is by turning the key back and forth from the "OFF" to the "ON" position. *** Be sure not to turn all the way to the "START" position until you have performed "Step 4", at least 3 or 4 times. If you attempt to start the car before the fuel pump is properly primed, you will run a serious risk of burning out the pump. This could lead to even more costly repairs!!!

5.) Replace the gas cap before attempting ignition.

6.) Once you have reset the pump, burped the tank, primed the fuel lines, and replaced the gas cap; you should be all set! Go ahead and give it a crank, good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

My explorer ran out of gas, i filled it up to about a half a tank, now it just turns over but wont start


if it's fuel injected,look on the fuel rail for a schrader valve--looks just like a valve stem on a tire but shorter.remove cap,again just like on a tire.turn key to on-push valve stem in as if to let air out if you get air,then gasoline,you have just bled the system.replace cap,start car.if you get no gas,remove gas tank cap,turn on key,listen for ""hum'' of fuel tank.no hum,check fuel pump.modern[plastic] fuel pumps will self destruct if run dry,even for a short time.

My buick sat for a year and wont start. it is fuel injected and not getting gas


You may have to drain the gas from the gas tank and replace the fuel filter. Gas that sit too long will turn in to varnish due to oxidation and will gum up the fuel injectors. Try draining the the gas tank and replacing it with new gas and replacing the fuel filter, once you have that done, *** a can of Sea Foam to your gas tank to clean out the fuel line and fuel injectors. There will be lots of smoke, but that is normal. As to how much smoke, just go on you tube and look up sea foam and you'll see how much so your not in a panic. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running gain.

1986 ford crown victoria no start


Was there any gas in the car before you added 5 gallons? If there was, it is the problem. The gas goes bad, especially if left in the car unused that long. The system will need to be flushed out (lines, tank, carb/or injectors cleaned.
Also, carefully inspect the entire brake system, as flex. rubber lines can dry rot, steel lines may be rusty (if rust was present when parked, even though the garage is dry). You will probably need to disassemble the calipers and brake cylinders, clean them, and flush the system out. Your tires probably need to be replaced also, as they may fail under high temp conditions (dry rot). I have stored cars over the years, not always in the best conditions, and the worst thing for a car is to have it sit unused.

No.
Unfortunately diesel leaves a residue in the lines and on the injectors.
There is only one cure for this, take out the injectors and get them serviced and flush all the fuel lines out with clean gasoline.
