The problem with running out of gas is, the driver keeps trying to start the engine when the tank is empty and it burns up the fuel pump. Turn the key on and listen very closely for a hum or buzz coming from the back or underneath the car. This would indicate the pump is running, No sound may mean the pump is not running. Find the fuel pump relay on the fuse block under the hood and swap it with another relay to see if that has any effect. Also check the fuse panel for a blown fuse. If all else fails, get a can of starting fluid, remove the air filter, and spray the fluid into the intake duct while at the same time craning the starter, The engine should start. If it starts and dies, do this 3 or 4 times. If the engine still wont stay running, you may have to replace the fuel pump.

2002 Chevy Impala wont start after letting sit after it warms up


Almost sound's like vapor lock , the fuel boils in the fuel injector rail , turns to vapor ! That was a common problem with carburetors , letting the vehicle hot soak after shutting down the vehicle an letting it sit for 10- 15 mins. The fuel would boil away ! Are the cooling fans working ? After turning off a hot engine the cooling fans can run on without the key being on , do you hear fans run ? What engine does your impala have ? 3.4 or 3.8 L . Has the check engine light come on ? The fuel pressure regulator could be leaking fuel . Pull the vacuum hose off the regulator after shut off the vehicle , is there fuel coming out of the regulator ? Dribbling out the end of the hose ? This could be bleeding the fuel from the fuel rail ! Good luck , hope i've given you something's to check that you haven't already .

I have a 2002 chevy impala and it wont start some times what could it be?


These cars have issues with the antitheft system. When it fails to work correctly, it won't allow the vehicle to start as an antitheft measure. This link explains.

I had ran out of gas in my 2002 Chevy impala it turns over but will not start what's causing this?


The fuel that is trying to ignite is not getting to the engine yet. My advice is to keep trying. Eventually the gas will ignite. Your car will start. If the engine is turning over, everything is in working order, but the gas is not getting to the engine. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

2002 impala - service vehicle soon light appears at random intervals. put a code scanner on the car and no codes returned. opening/closing trunk seems to make message disappear....what is going on?


Service vehicle soon is not the same as Check Engine. This is a reminder to perform some regularly scheduled maintenance based on your mileage. Could just be an oil change. Look in your owner's manual to find out.
