Depending on how much gas you put in it,
The fuel pump and gas gauge are all in one unit.The fuel pump uses the gas in the tank to keep it lubricated,So when you run out,It's like running an engine with no oil.
A little trick that will get you one more start to get you to a shop to replace the pump is to,
take a rubber hammer or something and hit the bottom of the gas tank about four times to loosen the fuel pump from it's binding bearings.

Have 98 ford contour ran fine till one day drove it to a friends house now wont start have gas spark no codes being thrown out on tester just cranks and cranks no start


The basics, make sure battery has a full charge. Have helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse.
You may also need to check compression. I need something to hang my hat on, to troubleshoot. Can you communicate with computer?

Fuel gage not working on a 1998 vw jetta


i believe he means how can he fix the fuel gauge not working problem not the running out of gas. since we already know why that happened (didnt know he was out of gas due to broken fuel gauge) theres only a few things it could be. the gauges power source or ground could be corroded or broken, the guage itself is broken or the sending unit is worn out or the wiring is faulty or broken to it.

If the starter doesn't turn over the battery is dead or you need to replace the starter.

The gas gage not working is caused by the fuel level sender located in the fuel tank this will also need to be replaced.

Remove back seat to get to gas tank to see if feul pump is working


If you ran the car out of gas, there is a very good chance that the fuel pump is dead. Gas is coolant for for the pump like anifreeze is for the engine. The pump has now been overheated and will need to be replaced. You must drop the tank to do this and I hope you did not fill the tank. It is a very good idea to never run your fuel tank below 1/4 because you stress the pump if you do.
