Sometimes when you run out of gas your fuel pump is dry ,you need to put lots of gas in then turn your key to the on position with out turning over the engine ,you should be able to hear your fuel pump cycle if it still wont start ,pump the accelerator pedal a couple of times then try and start it

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

Hi Arkina, Have the voltage regulator inspected and checked. If that checks out fine, check the earth connections or have someone check for you. If you have a volt test meter, start the engine and connect the meter to the positive and negative battery poles, measuring the output. At idle the alternator should output about twelve to thirteen volts, increasing to about thirteen volts with an increase of engine speed. With lights and heated rear window on the output should be about thirteen and a half to fourteen volts. Regards John

My 2005 nissan pathfinder acts like its out of gas. Put gas, started ran like normal for about two days. Then just stalls out with no warning. Will start back up like twice before it finally just...


My 2005 pathfinder was having the same problem. Took it to the dealer and they told me that there was a re-call on a relay that goes to the ECU. They suggested a engine diagnostics. If it turned out to be the relay, the part/labor and diagnostics would be free. My pathfinder is running great now. Hope this helps.

if you have high milieage you may have sucked in the gunk on the botton of your tank when you ran out of fuel check if you can hear the fuel pump running for about 2 sec with key on engine off if you hear nothing the problem is with your pump as they will burn out if they run dry for too long,if you hear the pump check for fuel pressure if pressure low check fuel filter to see if clogged by gunk from bottom of tank.

Check engine light code 0441


You may not have a leak, the problem may be with the sensor on the fuel tank that tells the Power Train Control module if the system holds vacuum, like all sensors these will and do fail on occassion, if you ran a leak down test and the system held vacuum within the manufacturers specs then the sensor may very well be the problem that is turning on the check engine light.
