Ran out of gas put in 4 gallons now wont start where is the carb on the 85 19oe gas? can i spray starter fluid somewhere to make it kick?

190e doesnt have a carb. BENZ e models are equipped with fuel injection and an on board computer. your problem is probably the fuel governor or the fuel accumulator.the former is bolted,either an ordinary screw or torx screw,beside the fuel distributor,while the latter is placed under the car's flooring clamped together with the fuel filter and pump.

Cavalier dies

you need to find the fuel pressure release around the fuel rail press the little tab when the car dies. If there is no fuel coming out from that point, your fuel pump is going.
