I ran out of gas today in my 94 mazda mx3 (1.6) after pouring 1/4 of a tank of gas in, I tried to start it and it wouldn't start. I thought maybe it was due to incline, nope. I can hear the fuel pump. It acts like it wants to turn over completely but stops. Someone said something about a fuel pump safety switch but I cannot locate it. We also sprayed starter fluid and it still wouldn't start, but it was at this point it seemed to try. Any ideas? I check the plugs for a valve seal leak, battery seems ok other than draining from trying to start, but I continued to keep it charged during troubleshooting.
