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 Honda CR-V stalls, mostly when the gas tank gets low (aka light on) but not only then. Engine will not stay on unless its constantly gassed, when I come to lights, I put it in neutral and gas it

water in fuel. put some water remover or gas line antifreeze in and keep tank full. the reason its worse after sitting is because the water sinks to bottom of tank and then the car is trying to run on just water. after driving it mixes with fuel

1994 corvette bad Gas ?????

Try a little starting fluid in the intake (not too much, just enough to test). If it takes off for a second or so, may be water in gas. Ten months old? It should be alright, unless it's loaded with water.

1990 dodge Dynasty bad gas mileage and now cutting out real bad. Changed spark plug wires, spark plugs and fuel filter. Ran good for a test run right after installing items. This morning ran fine the 5...

May just be some dirty fuel, or clogged dirty air filter...try putting 2 bottles of fuel injector/carb cleaner in the tank to be sure dirty fuel has been treated. Did your Dynasty sit for a period of time? (Not driven or run for several months, or did you let the fuel tank get very low? Same remedy. Hope this helps..

Run a bottle of Redline fuel system treatment through with a tank of gas...don't get any of the cheap ****...The Redline is like $8 and change at my local's the bomb. They have it on line if you can't find it's really good **** me! Next time you let you car sit...put some Sta-Bil fuel stablizer in the tank...they have it for ethanol gas's the bottle with the yellow label. Ethanol gas breaks down to varnish in just 45 gotta treat it if it you don't run it through the motor before 45 days. I run a bottle of the Redline fuel system treatment every 3 months. My 2001 Pathfinder has 115,000 miles and runs great!

Car has not been driven much. Last i drove it it

put some octane booster or fuel conditioner in it and put about 5 gal of premium gas in it. From sitting it may have moisture build up in it.

My 1997 nissan truck has been sitting and won't start

How long has it been sitting? After several months the gas breaks down and goes bad. I have let a car sit for a year, and start w/out a problem, but any longer than that, and you will probably have to drop the gas tank and clean it out, along w/ the fuel lines, and check the fuel pump, as it may be plugged up. Last, change the fuel filter.

Perhaps when the fuel pump was replaced, the filter was not replaced, or the dirt in the tank was not cleaned out. Sometimes these problems are a result of the filter getting clogged up and fuel is not able to reach the fuel rail. The car sits for a while, the sediment falls from the filter, it then starts and runs for a time, all the while, little by little, the sediment recollects and starves the fuel rail again.
