Question about Cars & Trucks
Check your manual for reset of low oil switch
Posted on Mar 28, 2015
Here are a couple of ideas.
- When you put oil in it, was it really low on oil, and, how much did you add? Make sure that the oil level is where it's supposed to be on the dipstick. Too much oil is not good.
- When you run out of gas, sometimes you need to prime the engine to get it to start (after you've filled the gas tank). Do you know that gas is getting into the carbueretor?
- Do you know that you have spark? Pull the plug(s) and make sure they are in good condition and not wet with gas).
- Do you know that the fuel you got was clean?
Hope these ideas help.

Good chance that even on 4 gallons it may not start I would try for more, prime the fuel pump several times by turning the key on and leaving it on for around 5 seconds then shutting it off and repeating, obviously not trying to start. I've had cases where even small FWD cars won't start even on 4 gallons on a 12 gallon tank. The newer fuel pumps are a closed system that only allow a small portion of fuel into the pump housing to keep contamination down. Let me know if after adding a few more gallons it won't start we will trouble shoot from there. Thank you for using fixya.com

Unfortunately the fuel pump can still be bad. The pump has a check valve on it that wears out. The pump will continue to run but, struggles to supply enough fuel to start the engine. You can buy a fuel pressure test gauge from Auto Zone or that type of auto parts store and check the pressure. You can purchase a fuel pump from them too.

if you were completely out of gas you can prime the car by turning the key forward until just before the starter engages and back off again. do this several times. doing this will allow the fuel pump to prime.
