Ran my car outta gas put a lil under a gal in started acting up put gas in at gas station now its not running right at all


Year make and model ? You may have cooked the pump or picked up some junk from the bottom of the tank, if the fuel pump is in the tank.
Running on less than 1/4 tank is tough on an in-tank pump.

Ran out gas put gas in it still wont start


If you run out of gas in this truck it will quickly destroy a fuel pump, the electric pump is located inside the gas tank, it is tiny and to do its job it uses the gasoline it is immersed in for cooling, if you run the tank below 1/8 tank level the pump is going to run hot, if you run out of gas the pumps rotor bearings get very hot and if the pump gets hot enough the rotor seizes up. Also when you run out of gas it takes more than 1 gallon to get the pump to prime again, 3 gallons minimum is the least amount. The bottom line here is that you will more than likely need to pull the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump.

Message center says "Fuel Computer Failure", gas gauge drops from 1/4 to empty - car runs out of gas. Fill tank with gas and car runs fine. 2005 LIncoln LS V8.


hi,
Im looking online and its looking like the sending unit in the gas tank, this tells the computer how much fuel is in the tank. its in the gas tank with the fuel pump. the gas tank has to come out and its a pretty straightforward easy weekend job. get yourself a haynes or chilton manual for the lincoln at the auto parts store. run it out of fuel again and follow the procedure for tank removal in the book or google it. spray the gas tank strap bolts with wd-40 too. have a garden hose and fire extinguisher handy .
good luck

Faulty Fuel Pump, and run an injection cleaner into your gas tank (you can buy a bottle at your local parts shop) then get the fuel filters checked or replaced.

Chances are contaminated gas clogged your fuel works.

For a quick fix: Open the gas cap at 1/4 tank to relieve the vacuum. it will make your pump work less.

Runs good with fuel tank full,1/4 tank or less runs poorly


sounds like you have alot of trash in the tank and when you are down to a 1/4 tank it begins to pick it all up. You should drain tank completly rinse with gas again then drain, continue process untill clean clear gas comes out. It is easier if you drop the tank down.

Under 1/2 tank, truck boggs down when step on gas


It is sludge and water in the tank. When you fill it water goes to the bottem of the tank and the good fuel goes on top where the fuel pump is.

Car won't start


Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..

I had the same problem with my 89 f-150 and the solution was replacing the six port selector valve located under the driverside on the frame rail. Just about right under the driver seat.
