Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala
Car was running low on fuel. Before I went to the gas station I went home. Tried to restart car wouldn't start. Tried for 20 minutes. 30mins later started right up. put few gallons of gas in the car. drove 10 miles. parked car for three hour. tried to start it again. same problem. this time one hour. after an hour started up. this more doesn't start. just spinning as if out of gas.
Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..
