you need 4 or 5 gallons gas to be on safe side.could be too late damage fuel pump.never run vechicle low on fuel.fuel pump needs gasoline to keep it cool and lubricated.add more gas see if engine run better.if not i would change fuel filter all sediment was disturb when you add gas to empty tank when you poured gas in fuel tank sediment break up stop up fuel filter.change fuel filter see if car run better if not more like fuel pump over heat and damaged pump motor bearing.

Cherokee will not start until i hold down on the gas as soon as i take foot off it dies immediatly


Might have to reset the codes on the computer. Take the + battery cable off the battery and reconnect it afer 5 minutes. Next try to start the engine without holding the gas petal down, it should start and run rought till the computer resets itself. If engine stops, restart the engine and hold the gas petal down and give it enought gas so it will run smooth, it may take 5 minutes or so for it to smooth out and run at idle speed. If this did not fix the problem, check for a vaccum hose that may be off some where on the engine

1995 Honda Accord stalls when you do not press the gas petal


Sound like a clogged or defective IAC. (Idle Air Control) It's usually part of the throttle body assembly. It can be removed and the passage ways cleaned out with old fashion carburetor spray cleaner. If that doesn't help you may try replacing the IAC to see if that solves the problem.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied


My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
