Ran out of gas, car wouldn't crank replaced fuel pump, fuel relay, and in line fuel filter and still won't crank on 2002 chevy avalanche

still won't crank ? how's your battery ? starter ? starter solonoid ? if your engine does'nt crank , its dead ! would'nt you check the battery first ? then move on with checking the starter circuit ? seems like your putting the cart before the horse ! first of all, when you run out of gas, you need to replace the FUEL FILTER, your engine just sucked the dirt, garbage, etc., out of the tank. there's plenty of sediment in the tank, don't know how it gets there, but, you'd be surprized ! talking threw experience !!! I operate heavy equipment, its a cardinal sin to run out of fuel !!! you say you replaced the inline filter, which one, up by the engine or the main filter, under vehicle along frame ? are we talking about the same animal, PLEASE CLARIFY !

Hobart 10,000 has been sitting for about 3 years and won't start any suggestions?

I know this is an old post, but I just had this same situation. Inherited a unit from my father in law and it had be sitting about a year. I drained the gas tank (disconnect fuel line and pressurize tank inlet with shop vac) and flushed out fuel lines and replace fuel filter, air filter, oil and filter. Cleaned and lubricated all carb and choke mechanisms. Sprayed a bunch of carb cleaner and let it soak. Put in fresh gas. Cranked and cranked and cranked. Did not start right away, but stuck with it. I put some gas in a syringe used for injecting meat (just so you know the size) and remove everything above the carb venturi. Put about 1 cc of gas directly in the carb and cranked. it started and ran until that gas burned up (about 2 seconds). It ran ok but wasn't getting fuel so I suspected the fuel pump. Kept at it and repeated this about 15 to 20 times and noticed that it would run just a wee but longer each time. Until finally it caught and ran strong. Put everything back and it is in great shape. Hope that helps. Also, I noticed there was quite a bit of moisture in the muffler. This sputtered out until it got out enough to evaporate it all out. I now keep it covered when not in use - something I am not sure my father in law did.

I have to open the gas cap in order for the car to crank up. It seems as if the no gas is getting to the motor until I open the gas cap & then the car will crank right up? How can I fix this?

sounds like a restriction in the fuel system or a bad fuel pump, likely suspect is the fuel filter or a dented fuel line, replace filter and replace gas cap with one that allow air to get in to the tank

My lawnmower will start but will not continue to run. How can I fix this problem? The gas is new and the oil is changed. It is clean underneath. Is this a carburation problem and how can I find the...

Probably some kind of fuel supply problem. You may have an inline filter between the tank and the carburetor. That filter could be pugged.

Also if the mower has been sitting for a coating sometimes called 'varnish" can develop on the jets in the carburetor. If the mower is starting its getting fuel flow..... if it won't stay running its because the fuel supply stopped

First remove the cover,air filter and the carburator.Then remove the gas tank cap and the fuel filter from inside of gas tank,at the end of fuel line.Take off the fuel line from the hole of the gas tank(at the top),replace the fuel line,put all back together and start the engine.
