I was told if you turn your ingintion off & on, but dont try to start the car. You just want to cycle the fuel pump, you must do this @ least 10 - 20 times. Then pull your housing around the fuel injection & spray some starting fluid in there, but be careful because it can start a back fire.

Ran out of gas.. that nite below feezin temps. car froze. allowed car to thaw. added gas... wont start. no oil leak. no water in oil. was pushed out of road wen car ran out of gas.. is there a fuel reset...


No ressting to do. You need to remove all air from the fuel lines. Running out of gas in any fuel injected vehicle is a big no no for it is so expensive to get back running right. Add 5 gallons of fuel to get good priming pressure first of all
Turn the ignition key on for 5 secondes and turn it off for ten secocds. Do this step 5 time to bring up fuel pressure to the engine
Next try and start it
If it does not start release the air pressurized in the fuel line at the fuel rail above the engine. It looks like a tire air fill valve. Use a rag to catch the gas that spews out as you bleed the air out
Now turn the igition key on and off again for 5 times as stated above and proceed to start the engine once more
Good luck

Ran out of gas and not getting gas to carberator after adding gas


Hello there:
If you have tried priming the fuel pump by turning on the key and listening for the fuel pump to be running if it is it may just need to be primed with a hand priming pump untill you get fuel
but if you still dont get any fuel i would check out the fuel filter to see if it is clogged and needs to be replaced
to locate the fuel pump and filter go under the drivers side and look at the frame of the vehical not quite half way back and you will see the fuel filter and just in front of this about 10 inches towards the engine will be the fuel pump ok>
best regards michael

Ran out of gas on my 01 expedition no it wont start


Do you have fuel pressure now since adding fuel?
Maybe you did not run out of gas ......but just happened to run out of fuel pressure caused by a bad fuel pump at a low fuel level?
Maybe you need a fuel pump.

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.

I have a cadallic escadale. It will turn over but wont start.


The fuel pressure should be 60 to 65psi in your system with the engine not running and fuel line primed, (ignition key's to the run position). Once engine is running the fuel pressure should drop by 5psi, change the fuel filter and recheck the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. it's known for the fuel pump to fail when the gas tank runs low or out of gas, the pump will end up burning it self out since the gas is what keeps the electric fuel pump cooled. The other thing to is putting gas through the top of the throttle body to start the engine on the SEFI is a NO NO, well a BIG NO NO. it's been know for the gas in the intake to catch fire and burn up the poppet valve in the injection system causing the replacement of the fuel injection system. Keep me posted and good luck, be gald to help you get your truck running again for the july 4th. OH and it was not mentioned but did the fuel filter get replaced???

Wont start , no fuel getting to fuel pump


Are you sure there is gas in the tank? I "fixed" more than one car that came in for a fuel pump replacement that ran out of gas. If you have gas, check the fuel pump fuse, fuel pump relay, check for power to the fuel pump. check wiring, kinked lines, clogged fuel filter. Sometimes new FI cars are hard to prime if there is air in the system. Take off the air filter and have someone squirt fuel down the throttle body while you crank the engine. If it fires, you know it's not getting fuel, but when it does fire , it may prime the pump enough to run.

99 gmc wont start


check electric fuel pump operation ( located in the fuel tank ). Occasionally a fuel pump will burn out when running out of fuel, due to the fact the pump runs DRY for about 30 seconds till the fuel stops flowing out of the injectors, the engine quits, simultainously losing oil pressure which FINALLY shuts off the fuel pump. Sometimes TOO LATE. Hope this helps

After running out of gas wont start


after you put gas in it did you prime the system?

when the gas runs out it drains the fuel lines, so after you put gas in the tank you will need to prime the system. To do this turn the key on to run but don't crank the starter and count to three, then key off and out. Do that three to four times and that should take care of getting gas to the engine.

Make sure you can hear the fuel pump turn on when you turn the key on. Sometimes when you run low on gas it can overheat the fuel pump causing it to fail.

HELP! HELP! SOMEONE PLEASE ! 2001 chevy blazer fuel problems


I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.

fuel pump died replaced it truck ran poorly afterwards. Had a prussuer test done pump determend pump was no good. Put in another ran good for 2 days started running poorly hard to start no power. 2nd fuel pump. So i figure another bad new fuel pump wow changed it put in a third brand new fuel pump. Still will not eve start now. I had it tuned up 2 months ago new plugs rotor, cap, etc. put in a new fuel filter made sure it is on proper checked all connections for leaks. this cannot be a fuel pump problem now. no problem with the elctrical i figure i have great spark on ignition tester. I can hear the fuel pump prime when i turn the key. but when i went and checked the fuel port i had no pressure. When it is being cranked gas sews out of the test port. Also i dont if this is comon cause i used to turn my keyand go. but when i have someone turn the key and i listen at the gas tank whn the key is shut off i hear gs spraying back into the gas tank. So i am open for opinions.
