first of all check your fuel pressure. it should be at least 7-10 psi.then you should check fuel filter. then next would be the fuel pump. other problems could be air filter or map sensor.

Your 1999 dodge stratus ran out of gas and when you put more in it would not start what could be wrong?

The fuel pump only runs for a couple seconds after the initial start attempt, then shuts off. Crank the engine for a few seconds. Then turn it off and then do it again for a few more seconds. Do this several times in order to get the fuel to the engine. After a few attempts, the engine should start.. Hope this helps...

Is started a Linking verb?

The easy way to recognize a linking verb is that a linking verb acts as an equals sign, the object of the verb is a different form of the subject (Mary is my sister. Mary=sister); or the subject becomes the object (My feet got wet. feet->wet).It would be difficult but possible to use 'started' as a linking verb, for example:The engine started itself. (engine = itself). or:She started the engine herself. This is not a linking verb because the object of the verb 'started' is 'the engine', not 'herself', the indirect object.Normally, 'started' is not a linking verb.

95 Chevy lumina engine problem Picked the car up drove it 5 miles and the engine stalled it would start but when you but it in either Fwd or Rev gear it would stall as soon as you touched accelerator?

That would be that the torque converter is gone on the transmission. Ive always found that if you get the engine started, go under the hood and manually open the butterfly valve on youre intake and hold it for 15 seconds at the rev limiter. If that doesent clear it up than you may need a new torque converter.

When do you change a fule filter for a Chevrolet suburban?

I changed mine when the engine started stuttering during acceleration. It go so bad that the engine would not run above a certain RPM. At first it would only go to 1900 RPM's and then it started droping. Looking back over the last several thousand miles the vehicle just didn't have power. With the cost of a new filter only being about $7, I would change it any time I thought it might be clogged.
