When older vehicles are driven to the point of running out of fuel, the deposits in the tank are sucked into the line and clog the filter and the line. On a 13 year old vehicle, I'd say you probably had this happen. You may be able to clear the debris by removing the gas cap and putting a small amount of compressed air backwards through the system by removing the line that feeds your fuel rail. put the air into the line slowly and have someone listen near the tank. After a while the debris will be cleared of your lines and backflushed through the filter. Gas should flow freely after that. Change your fuel filter asap though after it's running again. Or yes, it could be the pump.

    O my god I can't believe you told him to blow air. First never run a car real low or out of gas the gas keeps the pump cool and when they run out of gas they usually burn out. Turn the key and see if someone can here the pump run in the tank. Not running check the fuse still nothing check the fuel pump relay. Now replace the pump. There is a check valve in the pump if you blow air in the line well just replace the pump Send the bill to Eric

I ran my car out of gas and put gas in it now it wont start


How much gas did you put in it? It is very possible that when you ran it out, that your fuel filter became clogged with the sediment from the bottom of the tank. Make sure there is atleast 5gal. of fuel in the tank. Turn the the ignition all the way forward and wait 3 seconds, but dont turn the engine over. Do this 5 or 6 times to get the fuel pump priming. Then try starting the car without pumping the gas pedal. If the car still wont start, check that the fuel system has pressure. Maybe something failed in the fuel pump when it went dry. You can have someone listen near or at the fuel tank to see if they can hear the fuel pump kicking on and off while someone turns the key on and off. Hope this helps.

Well ran out of gas put gas in with gas can now it wont start maybe trash in filter


the fuel pump uses the fuel as a lubricant. when the fuel tank runs dry the fuel pump can overheat and sieze up. If you have power to your fuel pump plug then you may need to replace the fuel pump. check fuses and relays for the fuel pump circuit. Listen for the fuel pump to come on when you turn the key to the "run" position. Some people have luck by banging on the fuel tank while turning on the key to unstick the pump. don't count on this though.

HAD CORE PACK REPLACED IN JUNE 09. EVERY SINCE CAR


Maybe the fuel pump is going out have the fuel pressure checked. Or you have a defective coil pack. You should have taken it back to who ever put the coil pack on, right away when you first started having trouble.

Car wont start after running out of gas


Try a new fuel filter. you most likely sucked up some junk or maybe water from the tank when it ran out. Check fuel pump make sure it runs.
