SOURCE: ran out of petrol started shaking and cutting out now wont start at all

you have probably got a blockage in either the fuel filter or carb,so first check filter,if ok check carb.take fuel line of carb turn engine over see if fuel comes out if it does then filter ok if not change filter,

SOURCE: Replaced battery on my 2006 Ford Escape. Still won't start but everything else works

Figure by everything else you mean the radio,lights,etc? Is the engine turning over? What happens when the key is fully engaged? If the engine does not turn over the first place to look would be your fuses. Ensure that none look to be burnt or blown.If so replace and try again.If fuses look good Next step would be to ensure starter connection is good and starter is turning over.If the starter is not turning over then I would focus on it.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ran out of gas and put more in now car wont start i drive a bmw 3 seies

running out of fuel sucks the dirt off the bottom of the tank it might have caused it to fail i think you can get to it from under the back seat you can see if the pump has power there as well

2003 ford escape once it warms up, won't restart until the engine cools down. Takes several minutes. The last time it didn't start,once it cooled and started the engine rev up on it's own

Could be any number of thing's , engine management sensor's , ignition system componets - crankshaft position sensor , fuel system problem etc.. The thing to do is testing of each of the systems i have listed , not guessing an going on hear say . Having a diagnostic professional with the right diagnostic test equipment an service repair info. and knowledge check it .

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start

Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.
