I ran out of gas and now car wont start

You should look for a gas container, go to the nearest gas station, fill it, get back to your car and por the content of your gas container in the refill point of your car. If you don't have a gas container available, maybe you can buy one at the gas station.
Actually make, model and year of your car makes no difference to solve thei sad issue.
Some gas stations won't sell you gas in a container. In this case you should call a towing service and take your car to the gas station.

Ran out of gas,put 4 gals in wont start tried starting fluied wont start

Sounds like the ignition system is not firing the spark plugs if starting fluid and gasoline doesn't solve the problem.

Verify by putting a spark tester on one of the spark plug boots and attaching the spark tester to the engine block or ground.

It usually cranks and starts within seconds, every other day it will crank and crank and crank before starting, pressing the gas pedal doesn't seem to help or hurt, I'm afraid one day it will crank until...

your vehicle is fuel injected you should not have to pump the gas pedal plugs and wires ill bet that solves your problem and changeing the fuel filter wont hurt and a fuel injection cleaning wont hurt if you havent had one done to it

How can i fix a clogged fuel pump on a 2001 chevy malibu. the fuel pump is working ( you can hear it hum when you turn the key) I removed my back set to make sure and the car will turn over but wont start....

Have you changed the fuel filter? Did it die while driving, or just wouldn't start? Don't use starting fluid on a gas engine! It will cause a lot more problems than it solves. Ether, starting fluid is made for diesel engines... not gas, not ever. If it won't start, it isn't lacking ether. It's lacking gas, air or spark.
