Spray starting fluid in the throttle body (at the end of the large hose at the motor opposite of where the air filter is) and get it running on the ether, then it should take off on its own. But put in gas first. If you don't have ether (starting fluid), you can also cycle the ignition key to bring fuel to the motor. That is turn the key to the on position (not run), listen for a hum (electric fuel pump), when it ends turn the off. Wait 5 seconds, turn the key back to the run position, and repeat this five times. If this doesn't work, then you have a different problem.

Ether should be used sparingly because it can cause damage to your engine.

Another Suggestion:

Ether is unnecessary, just add gas to the tank, turn the key on and off a couple of times to run the fuel pump, and start.

If you cannot get gas to the fuel injection system, you may have a clog. You can have the system looked at and flushed out and take it from there.

what sort of fuel system? carburettor or electronic injection?

Bad fuel filter or maybe some water in the gas tank.

When you ran out of gas, you could have clogged your fuel filter with any dirt in bottom of your gas tank.AnswerIf the car is fuel injected spray a little eather in the fuel injection system as you have someone turning it over. That's is what it took to get my car up and at em again.

If the vehicle is equipped with a fuel injection system, it may be clogged. When a vehicle has fuel injection, the gas pedal does not need to be depressed to get it started. It sounds like the vehicle needs to be taken to a mechanic.

You can prevent fuel injection flooding by not pumping the gas pedal when trying to start the engine. Fuel injection systems do not need any additional fuel when starting the engine.

Most cars with fuel injection the fuel pump is inside the gas tank witch means you must drop the tank

It could be a carburetor (old school) or the fuel injection system.

A car can use more gas than usual if it has been skipping service after certain milestones. A messed exhaust and a faulty fuel injection system will also lead to increased fuel consumption.

The car doesn't use any fuel to shut it off, while cranking it only uses the same amount of fuel as it would while at idle.

Most newer cars come with fuel injection and most if not all cars now have the electric fuel pump mounted in the gas tank.Some fuel pumps are accessable through the trunk of the car and on some cars you need to remove the gas tank from the car to get to the fuel pump.

in 1985 there was no fuel injection in your vehicle unless someone has changed the motor and put in a ecm your vehicle is carberated. fuel injection will start your car without touching the gas pedal if you have to pump the gas to start it on a cold day its a carb. fuel injection in chevy's did not start until 1987 if this answer makes sense to you please recommend me. thanks.

The fuel system of the car engine accelerates gas from the tank of gas which then mixes with fresh air. This mixture then travels comfortably through the cylinder. The Fuel is delivered in three common ways namely, car buretion, port fuel injection and direct fuel injection. Oil plays a pivotal role in lubricating the engine and its different parts. This lubrication system helps every single part of the machine and makes sure that they are moving smoothly.

To restart a Jaguar after running out of gas, turn the key on and off a few times. Turning the key on will signal the fuel pump to pump gas into the carburetor.

If the car has a carburetor this is normal. If the car has fuel injection then are loosing residual fuel pressure. This can be caused by a weak fuel pump that is about to fail. Also can be caused by a leaking fuel line. A defective throttle position sensor is another possibility.

It is possible that the fuel pump has gone bad. This can happen if a car runs completely out of gas, never go below 1/4 a tank.

Hope this ain't it: About half the time, running the car out of gas causes the fuel pump (which is in the gas tank, and lubricated by fuel) to burn out. If you didn't fry the fuel pump, there's two other equally plausible problems. The first is that just before you ran out of gas you vacuumed all the crud off the floor of your gas tank and sent it to the engine (so you'll need a new fuel filter); the second is that you've got an air lock in the lines, which is keeping fuel from coming forward. The second is fixed by a mechanic with a machine that can suck fuel through the lines without burning the car down. In more recent car with fuel injection, running out of gas can't be fixed by filling the tank. You may have to check with your dealer, who will have to "reset" the fuel injection system for you.

if you hav fuel injection, id say its in the gas tank, if not follow gas line from the carb.

On cars with a carburetor you must press on the gas pedal to activate the choke, cars with fuel injection do not have a choke so this is not necessary.
