- WONT START

2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser • 4 cylinder Manual •

My PT cruiser ran out of gas, added gas but now it wont start. Will not start with a push start or with starter fluid.

In tank fuel pumps are cooled and lubricated by the fuel in the tank. When you run a car out of gas, it pumps a lot of air through the pump which overheats it and causes some severe wear and many times, failure when they cool off.
You will need to use a fuel pressure gauge to verify this

Check for spark at plugs.
