My son's Explorer ran out of fuel. We put 2 gallons in the tank, but it won't restart on repeated attempts. On other cars, after a few seconds of engaging the starter, it will fire off. Want to know if it is something simple that can be taken care of without having the vehicle towed.
Do you
have the same problem?

I hope your problem is not the same as ours - we had it towed in Monday, and worst fears were realized - broken front timing chain and probable slipped rear timing chain. Ballpark price to fix - $2500. Needless to say, my son is now looking for a new car.
