If you ran it out of gas,you might need to flush the tank out.There is a small filter on your hose in the tank that probably got blocked.

Why, when I ran out of gas, will it not start after adding 4 gallons of gas?

Hi,if the pump is working ok,I would say that there is some kind of blockage if you undo the fuel lineat the carb or injectors get a bottle and put the end of the line you undone into the bottle then get some one to hold the frottle peddle to the floor and turn the key,then you can see if the gas is coming through,give it a good fuew turns on the key,if gas comes through then put pipe back and turn should start,if not put air line on to blow eny blockage back into the tank,make shore the pump is working before you try this,all the best,hope this was some help.

1996 ford explorer stalls like it ran out of gas

It sounds like a weak fuel pump is causing the occasional stalling, particularly when attempting acceleration at normal driving speeds. It's not unusual for it to idle with no problem if the pump is weak. Also, check the fuel lines to.from the fuel pump. If all else fails, you might consider adding an auxiliary fuel pump to counter the weak OEM pump.

Car cut off like it ran out of gas, there is plenty of gas

check fuel pump is working, go to the engine compartment and take the fuel line off the injector rail and place it in a bottle then have a friend to turn the engine over and see if you have a steady flow of petrol flowing into the bottle, if you dont have any fuel at all id say its your pump. if you have a start stop flow or a week flow try changing your fuel filter

2002 chevy tracker LT 4wd 2.5, 6 cyl, check engine light is on code reads P0103 stating mass air flow sensor, have replaced it and ran worse, cleaned throttle body. Runs sluggish specially on inclines,...

Iwould check the fuel filter first thing it kind of sounds fuel related with the uphill power loss . the next thing to check would be the catayltic convertor with it running seewhat kind of exhuest flow is comeing out the tail pipe. But i think its more then likely its fuel related if it were the cat you wouldn't be getting mass air flow codes Do the fuel filter and when you have it off check to see what the fuel pump is putting out you should stick a plastic bottle on the end of the fuel line and crank the engine for 5 seconds it should fill it about a 1/3 give or take this is a 20 oz size bottle if its close its ok if its far less then its the pump However sometimes the pump will work fine one munite then stop then come back . Well i can't say for sure that this is the problem but it can't hurt to replace the fuel filter and check the pump hope this helps some

2002 caravan stalled, faulty gas gage added fuel ran for 2 blocks, stalled added 4 more gallons non-ethanol - no start checked fuel pump fuses & relay had towed 2 miles - started fine! ideas?...

Looks like your fuel supply line has got chocked. This happens when the dirt from the gas tank comes into the fuel line when the tank is getting empty as it has happened in your case. Check your fuel filter and replace if required.

1997 dodge ram 5.9 fuel pump troubleshooting truck ran fine was low on fuel stopped it went to restart n wouldnt fire poured gas in throttlebody n truck fired off n then died

If the pump has run down on fuel and the fuel pump ran DRY , then it is possible that there is air in the system and the flow can be restrictive. The fuel lines have to be opened out to allow the flow till the air moves out of the system.
The fault will clear one the pump clears this fault .Now you can connecct back and start .

Help i think i put gas with water in tank

See if you can disconnect the fuel line on the fuel tank side of the fuel filter. Connect a rubber fuel hose to the line you just disconnected, and cycle the ignition switch (on and off) very quickly. Make sure the hose is not pointed at you or someone, because there will be fuel under pressure. Maybe have a clamp or vise grips on the endof the hose to control flow. Squirt some fuel into a glass jar, and look for water or sediment in the jar. If it's not clear gas, you'll need to pump out the tank until it is clear. You can try adding some gasline antifreeze, which will make water and gas mix, but it will take two or three bottles to take up two ounces of water. The fuel filter may be contaminated and will need to be replaced, too.

you likely ended up with a lot of water and sediment in your fuel. First thing to try is a bottle of gas line anti-freeze as it absorbs any water in the fuel system. you may consider fuel injection flush and a new fuel filter.
adding a bottle of injection cleaner may work well too.

2000 buick lesabre ran out of gas

Electric fuel pumps are known for burning out if you run them out of gas, pull the fuel line at the trottle-body, have someone turn the key on and see if you get fuel-flow, you may also check the fuel pump fuse and relay to make sure they are good.
