Prime the pump. Put the key in, turn it to full electrical power (right before you'd start the motor) - you should hear the fuel pump kick on for several seconds. Once it stops, turn the key off for 20 seconds or so. Repeat this three to six times - that should be enough to build up fuel pressure. Then try cranking the engine over.

Why won't my car stay running after it ran out of gas

Most newer cars are very sensitive to being ran low on gas. The fuel pump is in the tank and relies on fuel to cool it down. Your fuel pump is now probably not pumping the required pressure for the fuel injection system to work properly (or at all).

1985 corvette cranks but won't start, fuel pressure good, oil is good also, it doesn't seem to be geeting any fuel. New fuel pump, filter & gas. Is there a security aystem problem?

Check to see if you have spark, if you do, and still it does not start, then you may think that fuel is not getting to it. At this point, use some starting fluid and spray it at the throttle opening. That should start it for a few seconds and give you the answer.

When i come to a stop, my car doesn't want to accelerate. I give it gas and it barely starts moving, almost like the transmission is slipping. It has an automatic transmission, if I ride the gas pedal...

evap codes won`t cause the acceleration problem.the miss fire codes could cause this if the miss fire is bad enough repair the miss fire problem first.i assume that you have checked the trany fluid for level and condition.if this happens all the time from a stop then you could have a transmission problem with 1st gear activating from a stop.if the rpm`s rise and your not moving with the rpm increase then its a transmission problem.the evap codes will have to be cleared then the car driven to see what shows up again as some false codes can set other codes.

1987 corvette with 26000 mile always garage kept from birth. Start once a week always starts inless than half a crank. But after ran down road for while and shut off takes 5-7 revolutions to fire. Almost...

Thee new fuels today go bad after around 3 weeks because of the ethonol content. Put a can of Sea Foam in the gas tank see if that helps clean it out. Best bet is to drain the tank put new fuel in it with a can of Sea Foam, then give it a good long run until the tank is empty. Re fill the tank and put the correct amount of Stabil in the with the gas, this will stop the gas from turning into sugar and it works for years.
Good luck

This seems like a fuel pump or fuel filter prob. The pump more likely. Will it fire up with gas poured into the carb? If so the pump. If not, we will need to look for another prob. Don't buy parts you don't need! Frankster016
