04 Bonneville ran out of gas now wont start?
Car may have trouble starting after running out of gas, You may need to put more than 1 or 2 gallons in before it will start. You may also want to bleed the gas line (there is a valve in the engine bay) to get any air out of the line that may have been sucked in.

Answer . Replace the fuel filter and use a starter fluid to start the engine.
Answer Clogged filter. Replace the fuel filter and pour in at least 5 gallons of fuel before attempting to start the car. Use starter fluid to start it if necessary. CHECK …IN THE TRUNK TO THE RIGHT. BEHIND THE CARPET LOOK FOR A RED BUTTON. ITS THE FUEL SHUT OFF. PUSH TO BUTTON DOWN AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO
Answer . Well, first you need to put gas into the tank - if the engine ran completely dry, you may need to put in up to three gallons for the electronic systems, pumps, et…c to work correctly.
Have you tried checking the fuel pump. i had a friend burn his out after he ran it empty.
Replace the fuel filter as it is more than likely clogged.
You most likely ruined the fuel pump
Pull air filter housing. Spray a little starting fluid in carburetor and start immediately. If it runs for a few seconds and dies again, you might have a fuel pump issue.
If the fuel pump is in the tank then you probably burnt the fuel pump up and you need to replace it. If it is mechanical on the side of the engine then you need to keep cranki…ng it over because the pump has to pump fuel all the way from the tank and through the lines, and because its mechanical it runs off engine revolutions so you will be cranking it for awhile.
Is the fuel pump working ?? You should be able to here it. If you can then you will just have to keep cranking it until it starts. It does not have a fuel return line on it …and it is full of air. If you just keep cranking it over it will push all the air out through the injectors and soon fill up with fuel and start. That is if it don't have a different problem.
First of all, your diesel engine did NOT run out of gas. Your diesel engine doesn't use gas, and if you insist on putting gas in it, you'll have bigger problems than not havin…g any DIESEL fuel. I hope you don't also confuse windshield cleaner, antifreeze, and brake fluid, even though they'll readily mix with each other. Nor are transmission grease and transmission oil the same thing. No matter what your derisive buds might have to say, nomenclature is important. Now then -- your fuel lines from the pump to the injectors probably got air in them when you ran out of fuel. The easy way to correct this problem is to take your vehicle to a mechanic. If that isn't feasible, you can -- with an assistant -- probably correct it yourself. Find the fuel lines from the pump to each of the individual injectors, and note how they are attached. Get a wrench or whatever tool is required for loosening that connection. Then have your assistant engage the starter while you loosen the connection on one line just enough to allow the trapped air to escape -- it shouldn't take more than two or three or four seconds of cranking. You'll know you're finished with a line when it begins to leak a little fuel. At that point, tighten the connection. As soon as it's snug enough not to leak, tell your assistant to quit with the starter already. Then finish tightening. Be aware, your engine will probably try to run on just the one cylinder, although it will probably fail. That's okay, though; it just lightens the load on the starter. Once you have finished with that line, move on the the next and repeat the procedure. After approximately two or three of the lines have been done, the engine will probably start when the starter is engaged. That's fine, too -- just keep going, one line at a time until you've done them all, or until the engine begins running smoothly on its own. If you don't feel comfortable with this process, or if you don't really understand what it's all about, then you probably shouldn't attempt it, assistant or not. Get someone more knowledgable. And don't ever again say your diesel engine ran out of gas, unless you're prepared to also say that your gas engine ran out of diesel.
probably because you need to put gas in it
In Chevy Silverado
You probably burned up the fuel pump. Get somebody to get into the car and shut the door and turn off the radio and A/C. Either get under the gas tank or take off the gas cap.… Put your ear next to the tank or gas filler and get the person inside to turn the key to the on position. You should be able to hear the pump run for just a second. If you don't hear it chances are the pump is bad. If you hear it you might want to try changing the gas filter.
In Chevy Trucks and SUVs
push start it
In Chevy Suburban
Are you sure it ran out of gas?? If it did infact run out of fuel then after you put fuel back in it then just turn the key on and do not try to start it and wait about 5 se…conds. Then turn key off and repeat steps again about 5 times and then turn key off and then start the engine. It should start.

Put a few gallons of fuel into the fuel tank then cycle theignition switch from off to on several times pausing in the onposition a few seconds each time. This will prime the …fuel system.After several cycles, start the engine as you normally would anddrive the car to a gas station and fill it up.

your issue could probabally be a fuel pump. when u run a car out of fuel it runs the fuel pump dry and the only thing lubricating a "in the tank fuel pump" is FUEL
