Truck wont start after running out of gas put gas in 3 different times from gas can wont statt


Have you tried listening to see if you can hear the fuel pump run?

Try pounding on the bottom of the gas tank with the palm of your hand. Sometimes that can jar the fuel pump enough to get it to run.

You can also try putting a small amount of fuel in the throttle body and see if it starts. It won't run long but, if it starts, you know you have a fuel delivery problem.

I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

1988 22r pickup have to pump the gas now before starting 15 to 20 times. i didnt use to have to pump the gas before every start if it sits more than 10 hours it wont start unless i start pumping the gas...


Seems like the choke is not turning on. The 22r uses a carb if I'm not mistaken. pump it a couple of times then try pressing the pedal completely down before trying to start it. Then press the pedal half way down. the point is to set the choke when you press the pedal all the way down.

Car has set for a year, but was working fine before it began to sit. Now when I try to start it it wont start. Changed the battery and sprayed starter fluid in the carburetor, it started for a moment then...


This may be a fuel injected engine. On some vechicles when they run out of gas you have to turn the key, but not try to start the car. Give it a few seconds for the gas to feed back through the gas line. Once you turn the key, the fuel pump will start pumping the gas to the engine for the carburator. If that does not work, then give it a little gas, no too much or you could flood the carburator. Try to start the car again.

Ran out of gas, now wont start


if it was out of gas completely, after filling with at least 5 gal, turn key on, without starting. You will hear pump come on. After pump stops, turn key off. Repeat this procedure three times an the engine should start after the third time.

Let me know,

Car wont start


if it backfired then there must be spark , (usually) i would suggest checking if there is fuel pressure (listen to hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position) if you dont hear anything then you may have a fuel pump issue..
