FUEL ISSUE

1993 Volkswagen Rabbit • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 100,000 miles

1993 Volkswagen Rabbit. I recently ran out of gas on a hill. I put gas in and it still would not start. Had car towed to home, tried on level ground. Did not start. In other cars if you run out of gas, you can prime the carburetor and it will start. My problem is this has no carburetor. It is fuel injected. Do you know where the fuel filter is located so I can try replacing that? Or do you have any suggestions? I need to get to work on Monday. Thank you in advance if you have a reply.

Try turning the key off and on a few times with out cranking the engine. This should cycle the fuel pump and get fuel up to the engine. Hopefully this will get you to work.
