NO.... It shoud start if everything else is ok. Make sure the fuel pump fuse is good. If its bad, the pump may be bad. The fuel is used to cool the pump. The fuse is in the under hood fuse box, labled F/PUMP RLY

No. If cycleing the key makes no difference and you do hear the fuel pump, you may try to use a small amount of starting fluid (small),If it starts but does not stay running, you should make sure you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail..

My 1999 Windstar ran out of gas and won't start. I changed fuses # 5, and 207; checked fuel injector, engaged. Put in 2 gallons gas. Need more gas?


If it ran out of gas you probably have an air lock in the system. You need to bleed the fuel lines to get rid of any air. You also may have picked up some sludge that had settled in bottom of the tank. Clean the fuel filter first and bleed any air out at the same time.

My 2002 lincoln ls starts fine when cold but if it sits for about 45minutes to an hour it will crank for about 5 to 10 seconds before starting. When it runs the engine runs great.


you have a very slight leak somewhere in the fuel system letting gas bleed off when sitting . try letting key on without trying to start for maybe 15 to 20 seconds pressure build up to fuel rail

Do I need to bleed the fuel line if I have ran out


No place to bleed a fuel line. If you can get to the starter motor easily take off the small diameter wire and turn the key to the start position. The engine will not turn over but the fuel pump will run . Hold the key for a few seconds then put the wire back on the starter motor and try starting it again.

Ran out of diesel now vehicle won't start


This is not unusual on a diesel. What happens is there is air in the system. If this vehicle has an electric fuel pump loosen line where fuel enters injection pump then turn ignition key to the on position and watch for fuel to appear and then quickly tighten line before turning off key. Then try to start. If does not have electric fuel pump will need a second person. One will loosen line and watch while other cranks vehicle until you get fuel and tighten line before the other person releases ignition switch unless vehicle starts first. If that doesn't do the job do this where line hooks onto each injector. Probably will not have to do this to all injectors but could run rough until all the air gets out of everything. I have farmed with diesel tractor for 25 years and dad I drove the gm vehicles with the 5.7. You normally don't start a diesel without bleeding the air out of the lines although some will self bleed most won't. Hope this does the trick.

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.

I had ran out of gas in my 2002 Chevy impala it turns over but will not start what's causing this?


The fuel that is trying to ignite is not getting to the engine yet. My advice is to keep trying. Eventually the gas will ignite. Your car will start. If the engine is turning over, everything is in working order, but the gas is not getting to the engine. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

Ran out of gas, put gas in it, changed fuel filter and I can hear the fuel pump kick on, but it still won,t start.


Possible that there is an AIR LOCK and so you will need to bleed off the air within for the fuel to flow into the pump. So remove the fuel line and allow fuel to flow or blow into the fuel tank.( must **** out the fuel )
once the fuel comes over the pump will hold on.
Next time make sure that the tank does not run dry.

2003 escalade will not start after running it out of gas


My wife ran out of gas once and I had to bleed the fuel lines of air that had been sucked in before gas would travel through the lines. Kinda like you would have to bleed air out of hydraulic brake lines.

My car wont start


you need to prime the fuel injectors. When you run a fuel injected engine out of gas it will get air in the lines. you need to bleed the air out of the lines. There might be something in your owners manual on what to do if you run out of gas. I had a 94 grand am and the fuel rail had what looked to be a valve stem on it. I turned the key to the on position pushed the center of the valve until fuel came out of it...stay out of the way the fuel is under pressure. The newer cars may have another way of doing this, check your manual.
