Question about Pontiac Firebird

1 Answer

My 1992 firebird fuel injected 5.7 will not start. It ran out of gas. It now has gas, but all it does is just turns over. Is there a fuel pump or injectors switch to reset.

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).

I ran out of gas. When I put gas in the tank the car wont start. What do I do?


hopefully all you need to prime the system
just turn the key on for 5 sec...do not crank and then turn the key off 5-10 times

each time you do this listen for the fuel pump...you should hear a whining noise
if you do not hear the whining noise then you killed your fuel pump when you ran out of gas

do you drive often below 1/4 tank?

My LHS wont start... if I ran out of gas-- did I mess up the fuel injection? I cant get it to start...


Turn on the key and listen for the pump to run for 5 seconds. If it does, repeat this process about 5 times.
spray starting fluid in air intake too.

Where is my fuel pump at? on a 1995 chevy camero 3.4 yes ran the car out of gas put so in wont start now what should i do first


Your fuel pump is in the tank. Turn on the ignition, and listen if you can hear the pump run in the tank. It will only run a few seconds if the engine is not running. You can repeat this several times to prime the fuel injection.

Ran out of gas 90 toyota corolla fuel injection


Sounds like air in the fuel line. Try turning the key ON and pumping the gas pedal (it may take 10-15 times) and then try to start the car. You need to force gas through the fuel lines to dispel the air it was pumping when the car ran out of gas. If it doesn't work the first time, let it rest and repeat by pumping the gas. Best of luck!

MUTIPORT FUEL INJECTION PONTIAC FIREBIRD 3.1


My 92 Bird with the 3.1 did the same thing after it sat for about 2 months. The car had aways started right away before. I had to jump start it and I thought it would never start.Same as yours after it started. Seem to get better after I ran it awhile. It was getting good spark and was getting fuel. I checked fuel pressure, it seemed to be within specs.then it started to sputter and the pressure dropped to almost nothing. Seems that the fuel pump was going bad, but still would pump enough fuel at times to run. When the car was parked the fuel pressure would bleed off, and when I tried to start it the pump had trouble pumping enough fuel to pressure the system.Long story short! Replace the fuel pump, and filter.....

Car starts but turns off after a 10 min or so.


This definitely sounds like a fuel pump/filter issue. Good news if it's the filter, it's only about 10 dollars to buy a new one and about 5 minutes labor, including jacking up your car.

Fuel pumps cant be a pain in the arse at times, others are fairly easy. Best way to determine if it's the fuel pump, run over to Canadian tire and pick up an ohms meter. Test the fuel pump that way.

Hi,have you done a fuel pressure check on the vehicle.This will check the status of your fuel pump.If its a carb engine it will be 5 to 7 psi.If its fuel injection it will be approx.35 to 45 psi.Good Luck!!!
