Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

My car ran out of gas. I put two gallons into my car. My car will start up and then turn off. The engine turns on but it won't idle. If you try and switch gears it will turn off. You have to hold the gas to keep the car running. The battery is charged, so that isn't the problem. Any help? Also, we think it may be the fuel filter but we don't have any justification behind it. Where is the fuel filter located? Please help.

Why won't my car stay running after it ran out of gas


Most newer cars are very sensitive to being ran low on gas. The fuel pump is in the tank and relies on fuel to cool it down. Your fuel pump is now probably not pumping the required pressure for the fuel injection system to work properly (or at all).

Car wont start after I ran out of gas


Take off the smaller wire off the starter motor. Put the key in the start position and hold it there for a few seconds. Listen for the fuel pump running. If you hear it running then it feels like it stopped, then let go of the key and reinstall that wire on the starter motor. It should start.

I ran out of gas I put 2 gallons in but the car won't start. It will tunr over, the lights come on, but the car won't start. Do you think I need to keep cranking it and add a can of starting spray...


sounds like when you ran out of gas, you clogged your fuel filter. Change your fuel filter and put a little bit more gas in it and she should fire right up. Hope this helps, James Booth. :)

My 2001 L Series Saturn ran out of gas, then after 1 gallon of gas was added to the tank, the engine would not turn over. Any suggestions for how to get it to start?


the fact that it won`t turn over is just a coincedent it happened when you ran out of gas.i`m assuming that you mean the motor won`t turn over at all and not that you mean it will turn over and not start.if it is the latter then the fuel needs time to fill the lines and pressurize the fuel system while cranking over.
