If you ran the tank dry with the engine running you may have picked up some crud from the bottom of the tank and clogged a filter or the fuel line. There is a small pick up filter in the tank on the fuel pump and another on the fuel line running up to the engine. Pull the filter on the fuel line and see if you have fuel to that point and replace the filter while its off. Caution, the line is under pressure so crack the line and release it at the engine first. Also open the gas cap before you start this procedure. This will at least tell you if you have a fuel problem.

SOURCE: ran out of gas-truck won't start-replaced fuel

you probably have air in the lines, if you have a carb, spray some quick start into the carb and turn it over, if it starts and then dies when the starting fluid has run out, you probably need a fuel pump, since the running of the car should have blown out any air that was in the line, If your car is fuel injected, loosen the bolt cap at the end of the injector line that supplies the fuel,, and tap the key once,, ( don't start it,, ) just turn the key on and off 3 or 4 times, this should blow fuel out of that loose bolt head, if it does your getting fuel, if not, back to the fuel pump, also you can check this link, http://www.aa1car.com/library/us1296.htm

Turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump to prime, you ran out of gas, if it was weak to begin with that may have finished it.

Ran out of gas......


Sounds like fuel pump burned out when you ran out of gas. probably ran dry for about 20 sec till engine quit. Check for power to fuel pump in tank.Most likely fuel pump will need replacement . Hope this helps
