Car starts, but cuts out right away. Ran out of

Car starts, but cuts out right away. Ran out of gas the day before but not sure if related. Also security system armed yesterday and wouldn't let me use key. Eventually that worked. Sounds electrical to me except for the engine cutting off. Any advise would be great.

How can I accurately check my fuel system/ injectors/ pressure/ fuses.

First thing you need to do is fill it up with about 10 gallons of gas and then locate the fuel reset button. This is going to be a button that you will have to find the location of in your manual. This is a safety feature for the car when it runs out of fuel. It will keep the gas from getting to the engine until it is pushed and reset.

I have a 1997 Pontiac grand prix supper charged GTP I believe i ran out of gas and I put gas in it and it didn't start so my mechanic said I flooded the fuel filter so he changed iit but now it starts but...

Its more than likely the fuel pump . Giving the year and the symptoms . You may have not ran out of gas in the first place it may have actually been the fuel pump . You are probably just getting enough gas in it to start and then cut out right away.

Car ran great,till one day on way home,ran out of gas,got more and about 5 miles or so,car started choking and cutting out,then it would start running normal ,well next morning on my way to work,ran fine...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If I were you, I would check the fuel pressure and check for spark. Make sure the fuel filter is not clogged and make sure you don't have a bad fuel injector. Your fuel pump could be going out also. Ev en though it appears to be fuel related, it may be s problem due to bad plugs/coils, wires, distributor cap, rotor, coil packs. Go ahead and check all your fuses to be safe. Once you test for spark and fuel pressure, you will know which way to lean. I am sure that one of them are off a little. If not, it may be something electrical. I believe it is fuel related, so start there.

- When was the last time this car had a tune-up? Could be as simple as that. New spark plugs/rotor/distributor cap/condenser might do the trick.

Other causes could be:
- bad fuel pump relay (definitely first on the list of things to check, and cheapest to fix)
- clogged/old fuel filter
- bad fuel pump

Going down the road and the engine cuts off but every thing else is working i have the right psi on the full line had it towed to the house the next day went out and started it it ran for about 2 or 3 min...

sounds like one of two things, first things first make sure your car has gas in it sometimes the gage can be off and show gas in it when there is very little, if the car is parked on a hill that could also be letting the gas flow away from the fuel pump also causing the car to sputter, If it has gas then your fuel pump is out and will need replaced. hope this helped

I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.
