Ran out of gas. got gas, splashed a little gas in the carb? (air inductor) looks like a carb under the doghouse. now, won't start, wants to but won't keep running. 1994 dodge primetime van.


Replace fuel filter. when you ran out of fuel you picked up water in the bottom of the tank. Turn the ignition switch on and off several times to prime the injectors before trying to start. The water in the tank may have damaged the fuel pump. Do not damage the starter. If it does not start right away, riding the starter is not going to help matters. Investigate the fuel problem.

Masada pu ran out of gas will not only if i prime, for a few seconds


Fuel pump is not running (if electric) or floats stuck. Outside of those, hole in fuel line, possibly even line in tank. My old one had a sight glass on the float bowl where you could see if fuel was in it.

New filter new fuel pump won't stay running


Well your engine has a carb, so it could be dirt in the carb, or a vac leak, or several other possible causes.
Does the choke close when the engine is first started ? Have you checked the fuel line to see if the pump is providing gas ?

Ran out of gas-truck won't start-replaced fuel


you probably have air in the lines, if you have a carb, spray some quick start into the carb and turn it over, if it starts and then dies when the starting fluid has run out, you probably need a fuel pump, since the running of the car should have blown out any air that was in the line, If your car is fuel injected, loosen the bolt cap at the end of the injector line that supplies the fuel,, and tap the key once,, ( don't start it,, ) just turn the key on and off 3 or 4 times, this should blow fuel out of that loose bolt head, if it does your getting fuel, if not, back to the fuel pump, also you can check this link, http://www.aa1car.com/library/us1296.htm

Will not start not getting fuel to carb


Prime the carb and see if it starts for about 3 seconds. If you can manually get it to start, the problem is in the fuel line most likely the fuel pump that is in the gas tank. The fuel filters do not just plug up without notice but the fuel pump will go in a micro second. Here is a tip...........always always always keep a 1/4 tank of gas or more in the gas tank. The fuel pump inside the gas tank stays cool due to the fact that the gas cools it. This helps extend the life of electronic fuel pump.
