How to get 1999 Buick century to start after added a gallon of gas after it had ran out of gas. It turns over but won't catch up to start running
check for fuel pressure, a lot of times when running out of fuel you burn the pump out, or clog the fuel filter and injectors.
Give it a little spray of starter fluid down the intake, if it fires off even briefly, then for sure you have a fuel delivery problem, and most likely it is the pump as it ran dry. Also don't forget, if it is the pump, replacing the fuel filter and fuel pump relay to cover the warranty on the new pump.
I just had the same problem, didn't know what to do cause my fuel pump was turning on, tennisshoes reminded me that just because it turns on doesn't mean it works, I replaced mine and car is like a champ again, I would listen to tennisshoes
Adding one gallon of gas is probably not enough especially if the car is on a slope. Put 5 in it.
