I have a 97 manual Saturn, I ran out of gas and oil so car stopped running. Refueled it amid put in oil, now won't start. Lights and radio come on fine but can't get engine to start, what can I do. Also heard there is a fuel switch possibly?

No, running out of fuel will kill the fuel pump. It cannot run without fuel as it is a lubricant.

You most likel burned out the fuel pump.

Just to add to this one does it crank no start or no crank no start?You said you ran out of gas and oil?The oil part scares me because you can sieze the engine do that. If the engine doesnt even crank over then you could have locked the engine up from lack of oil. There is no fuel switch on that car.
