Hi its probably dragged sh#t from your tank, is your petrol pump external if so,so is the fuel filter. change it, its easier than trying to flush it. once thats done. foot on excelerator and turn over if problem solved car will start within 20 seconds max. if however its air locked, crack the fuel line open at the injectors and turn over with some one watching for petrol to come through as soon as it does stop and tighten up injectors, car should then start, if it still doesnt start it could be muck actually in your in injectors, they will need taking out and cleaning,,,,but we will get to that if all others fail, please let me know what happens, i hope this helps

SOURCE: Hi We have a few q's

Are you sure it ran out of gas? Check fuel pressure. these are famous for breaking the timing belt. Does it sound normal when cranking? If not, check and make sure the cam is turning, if not. you have a broken timing belt and bent valves.

If you can hear the pump run and you get no fuel its the pump, If it blew the fuse i would say the pump tied up. That happens when you run around on empty a lot, gas is what keeps pumps cool when you run under 1/8 of a tank pump is not submerged in gas to keep cool hense pump burns up.

Hello
The electric fuel pump in this car is located inside the fuel tank, it is a very small pump but able to do its job without burning out because it is cooled by the gas it is immersed in, when you run out of gas you severely overheated the pump and it seizes up the rotor that pumps the gas. You should avoid ever letting the fuel tank level go below 1/8 tank on gauge to avoid pump damage from heat. Bottom line you will need to replace the fuel pump. I have seen this happen dozens of times in cars towed to the shop after they ran out of fuel..

Wont start after refueling


Hesitates after refueling, have someone check the FPR, Fuel Pump and Filter.
If you have junk in the tank, it will circulate when you add fuel to the system.

Wont' start


I would look at the possibility of a clogged fuel filter first. Some contaminants from the bottom of the fuel tank may have clogged it up when the tank was run empty. It has been known to happen. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Ran out of fuel


The reason is: When you completely run out of gas your gas lines are completely drained of fuel. When you refuel the car the fuel lines are still empty, and you will need to crank the car until the fuel pump has filled the gas lines and established the correct fuel pressure.I also suggest you turn key to on position to let electrical system run fuel pump and when ready to crank over engine have battery hooked up to a battery charger this should do it!!

1995 Toyota Camry v6 wont start after running out of gas & refueling


the electric fuel pump inside the tank needs fuel to cool itself. if you ran out of gas and tried to start several times it is possible to burn out the motor. also you will **** all the dirt inside the tank when this happens. either you have to replace the pump or you have clogged the filter
