How do you get a fuel injected 92 Dodge Shadow to start again after you ran out of gas?

One way is to put gas directly into the air cleaner throttle body. A soda bottle cap full should be enough. You may have to do this a few times to get the lines to the injectors full of gas instead of air. .

The above method may work, however it is at risk of a fire. A better/safer way, is to cycle the fuel pump a few times. Turn the ignition key on (but not to start), you should here a the fuel pump running, then stop. Turn the key off, wait a moment, then turn the key on again. Do this a few times, and then try to start it. As long as it has an electric fuel pump (I haven't seen a fuel injected car that doesn't) this should work.

Dodge has never put the pump on the outside of the tank on any fuel injected Ram Vans.

when my 1998 Dodge Durango would start and cut back off, I had to reset the alarm by using the lock / unlock buttons on my key remote.

4 quarts... Initially. After doing so, start the vehicle and shift into every position a few times. Check your fluid levels again, and add as needed. I had to add another 2 quarts to get to the proper levels on my 1992 Shadow ES 3.0 v6.
