That weird sound is the pump trying to pump air......and it can cause the pump to overheat and burn out very quickly.........which it sounds like what has happened........a fuel pump can burn itself in a matter of minutes........

sorry about the bad news....

You will now need a fuel pump. When a pump runs dry when it is on it's last legs, it will burn out. Replace the pump, it was no doubt due, you just gave it a little kick. It may be better this way, than getting stuck somewhere on a trip out of town.

I have a 2003 Pontiac Montana that ran out of gas, I put 2 gallons in it and now it won't start


Turn the key to run and listen to see if the electric fuel pump is running. If it is, allow it to run for 30 seconds before turning the key to start. This will allow the pump to push enough fuel to the fuel rail so the injectors have something to spray.

My barretta wont start


Is it possible that when you ran out of gas, you pulled through all the muck that was swashing around at the bottomof the tank? Seems likely to me that IS the case. Best to get the fuel system cleaned out completely.

RAN OUT OF GAS PUT 2 GALLONS IN TURNS OVER HOWEVER IT WONT START


Yes. All cars have fuel filters. The most common location is under the chassis by the fuel filler. Look for a little plastic cylinder with a pair of hoses going to it.

96 Jeep cherokee ran out of gas, re-fuel, won't start. No spark.


You may have to prime the fuel pump. Or replace the fuel pump if that does not work. Why do you let it run out of gas? This is definately not good for an injected motor. It will continue to cause more and more problems. Fuel injectors should never run dry.

Ran out of gas......


Sounds like fuel pump burned out when you ran out of gas. probably ran dry for about 20 sec till engine quit. Check for power to fuel pump in tank.Most likely fuel pump will need replacement . Hope this helps
