You must let all air out of the fuel rail so it will start. You will need to crack the nut to the fuel line near the engine to do so. After you have loosen the nut turn the ignition key On for 5 seconds about 6 times to insure all air has escaped. DO NOT TURN THE KEY FULLY OR THE STARTER WILL CRANK..Dry off excess fuel off the engine at let stand to dry before trying to start it up

Ran out of gas and then I put gas now my car won't start the engine turns but won't start how can I fix it


Some vehicles need a substantial amount of fuel put in the tank after they have run out, Sounds daft that they will completely empty the tank, but won't restart unless you put a minimum of 10 litres back in. Most modern tanks are fitted with a swirl pot that cools unused fuel returned to the tank. Try putting extra fuel in it.

2002 pontiac gran am son was driving it ran hot I put in coolent and check oil no oil put in oil tried to start it car will turn over but will not start getting gas heard the fuel pump


check oil to see if there is rad fluid in it. if there is you have a cracked head or head gasket. if no rad fluid in oil, check for a spark.pull out a spark plug attach spark plug wire hold close to engine block with gloves and turn over engine. it is best to have someone with mechanical know how to do this,i.e. friend or nieghbor

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.

Ran completely out of gas last week - put gas in - car started fine- ran a little rough and idled rough. Now 10 days later MIL light on in dash and perform service message. Won't go out after several


have the fuel filter changed and have the computer checked for codes incase something else is going on and they can be cleared to turn off the light.any dirt in the lines should be out of them by now.its possible that there is dirt in the injectors and a fuel system service should be done to clean them which is a recomended service on all cars anyways.you can have the fuel pressure checked while its in the shop to make sure the pressure is within specs.
