How do you restart a 2010 Kia Optima after it runs out of gas?

Hey. Put gas in and turn ignition on run and off 5 times slowly( don't start up the car) every time you turn ignition on you will hear pump priming for few sec at the time. After that you should be able to restart your car.

Car has been sitting up and will not start now. It seems to not be getting gas and I do not know how to prime a fuel injection system. Any help appreciated.

There is only a few cars fitted with an ancient petrol injection system that needed any priming.

Diesel engines mostly need the injection system priming but petrol injection systems do not.

Lots of cars use a system where the fuel pump runs for a couple of seconds when the ignition is switched on and that is all the time it takes to prime the fuel system. After a couple of seconds the fuel pump switches off and waits to restart when the engine is cranked.

As priming the system takes only a couple of seconds some manufacturers don't bother with the brief priming run of the pump and just have the pump start when cranking.

Could be faulty supply, fuse, pump relay or the pump itself.
If the car is fitted with an immobiliser, perhaps that is the problem.

Hard starting when cold. 30 sec to min crank. Runs good after start.

Hi Thomas:
Sounds like it's not getting fuel right away.
I'd be checking the choke, and also perhaps try priming by pushing gas pedal all the way down twice, spin over 2 or 3 seconds, then pump gas pedal twice again, then try to start.
None of this is valid if it is a diesel.

Honda pilot out of gas put gas in and still won't start

false economy that.....
the pump is fuel cooled and Lubricated,
running it dry, wrecks the pump. (at the least lost the prime)

this car is no like an old carb car ,where this is ok.

if lucky key on and off 10 times, and hear the pump, it you hear it run.
it may prime. some cars 1/2 the pump is dead until cranked.
so easy to drain a battery priming the pump.

sometimes when you run out of gas you can pull up the dirt fromthe bottom of the tank and damage the pump one quick way to see if you have a pump or filter problem is to put gas directly into the carbuerator or throttle body if fuel injected you can try spraying starting fluid into the air intake also try heet in the fuel tank i hope one of these works for you also to make sure your fuel pump is running you can take off the gas cap have somebody turn the key to on (not start) and put your ear by the tube to hear iif the pump hums or runs this primes the prior to starting good luck

Starts but after of running a while will not restart the more i prime the pump it starts and runs nothing else wrong with it

There is no priming of anything

If your talking cycling the key to start the
fuel pump,then maybe the fuel pump
is worn & not building pressure, to always
start the car quickly

The TPS Sensor moves a you push the gas
pedal. It may be worn

There is no corrolation to your foot & fuel issues

Those where the carburator days over 25 years ago

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 it out of gas,now wont start

Turn the key without starting the engine, you should hear the fuel pump engage. Do this a few times to prime the engine. If it still doesn't start, spray "starting fluid", available at parts store, into your throttle body. It should start now.

Fuel problem

fuel pump sound like a good place to start it may not be getting enough pressure to the fuel thus not sending enough of it at a time to explain why it runs good sometime i think it is primeing and filling the lines once it shuts off and so for a litle while it has enough gas but one you use the gas that was ready in the line it can't get enough to run correctly. have it tested.
