Ran out of gas and now it don't start
My car has 175000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
When you ran the fuel pump dry of fuel, the fuel pump may have seized up. Fuel pumps use the fuel in the tank to keep it cool so it does not overheat and also lubricates the internal parts as the fuel goes through it. Have the fuel pressure tested, and if the pump is not pumping after you put in at least 5 gallons, then replace the pump and filter.
I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, perform an inspection to determine why the car is not starting and suggest any needed repairs.
