Tried to start 1999 kia sepha but I think it ran out of gas/ put 1 gallon gas in but it wont start


Could be the fuel pump. Can you hear it run when you turn the key on? If not sure, pull the gas cap and listen there. If you don't hear it. Hit the bottom of the tank about where the fuel pump would be. If it starts then, replace the fuel pump. Running out of gas will kill old fuel pumps. Check the plugs for spark. No spark, read the codes. Could be coil/s or crank sensor.

After i ran out of gas?


Reset the computer & check the fuel PSI. You may want to replace the gas filter. when u run dry, the filter picks up all the dirt at the bottom of the tank. Make sure your gas PSI is good before u get into electronics. start w the basics. That would set that code too trying to start dry.Good luck

About a gallon of water was put into my gas tank by mistake by my idiot friend. The car been started and ran for a min before I realized what was up when the car died and wouldnt restart. My friend removed...


First put in 5 gallons of gas or more and also add 91% rubbing alcohol in the tank - 2 full bottles

also replace the fuel filter now - before you move on - unless you have a lot of time to waste - change the filter now - and you will be ok.

My vehicles been parked for several months occasionally starting it.had it running one day with low fuel vehicle shut down. at a later date i put some fuel vehicle is making no attempt to start. please...


Make sure you put in at least 5 gallons of gas and that the car is on a flat surface while trying to start it. Cycle the key from off to run (but dont start) in ten second intervals, this will prime the fuel system. Also check your fuse box for a blown fuel pump relay. Since the vehicle was run dry it is also a good idea to replace your fuel filter.

there is a emergency shut off switch in the trunk to keep the pump from burning out when you run out of gas if by chance yours does not have one you will need to replace pump

2004 nissan titan...ran out of gas


Good chance that even on 4 gallons it may not start I would try for more, prime the fuel pump several times by turning the key on and leaving it on for around 5 seconds then shutting it off and repeating, obviously not trying to start. I've had cases where even small FWD cars won't start even on 4 gallons on a 12 gallon tank. The newer fuel pumps are a closed system that only allow a small portion of fuel into the pump housing to keep contamination down. Let me know if after adding a few more gallons it won't start we will trouble shoot from there. Thank you for using fixya.com
