won't start after running out of gas
'07 1800R, 32k miles
It's been sitting, on a level stand, for about a year while I was making repairs after being t-boned by a deer.
I started it up a few times in the last week... no problem
I THOUGHT I had enough gas to get me the mile to the gas station...
I put in about 4 ounces of Lucas gas treatment, took it down off the stand, and..
about 1/2 mile down the road I ran out of gas...
I put about a gallon of fresh gas in the tank and it will not start. It cranks just fine but won't hit.
A friend said the fuel pump may have burned out?? He suggested I check all fuses, and all fuses in the block under the right hand cover are good.
When I turn the key on, I hear about 3-4 seconds of a very low, rumbling/ humming (I can't describe the sound) that repeats every time I turn off the key and turn it back on again... thinking it just needs priming...
The sound is definitely a bit louder with the gas cap off and my ear pressed to the filler hole in the tank.
I've since added another 3/4 gallon fresh gas and tried it again.. won't hit.
I still hear the very soft, low, rumbling/ humming sound for about 3-4 seconds and then that sound stops.
Any suggestions (other than NEVER run a FI engine out of gas?)
