      When the vehicle runs out of gas, the fuel pump is pumping debris into the fuel filter and clogging the gas from flowing.Replace the fuel filter and spray a little starting fluid in the throttle valve body, a good chance the engine combustion will draw the fuel to flow again.

    My car won't start suspect the starter or starter relay .
    I took apart the starter relay to examine internally and notice it sometimes clicks and there's a ark turning ignition

      A relay is supposed to make a clicking noise every time it engages. The way a relay works is by using a low amperage circuit with a coil to magnetize a switch inside of it. The current flows through the low current side of the relay (activated by a switch like the ignition switch), energized the coil and creates a magnetic field. The magnetic field attracts the high amperage side of the relay to engage and complete the circuit.

      If you want to test the starter itself, you will want to attempt to connect the s terminal of the starter solenoid to b+. If if the starter motor spins and engages the engine flywheel, starter motor is good. If the starter motor engages but makes a high pitch whining noise, it is spinning but not engaging the flywheel, and starter motor replacement is necessary.

    Why won't my car start until the temp gauge reads cool after it warms up
    My car will start fine and runs fine, when the temp gauge reaches the normal spot just below 1/2 and u turn engine off it will start again immediately, but if u wait literally 1 minute it will not start again until the temp gauge reads Cool.

      Ever think when the coolant was gone it was time to park it & find out why?

      I would guess it is going out the exhaust from a failed head gasket IF you
      do not see the coolant on the ground

    recent problem.175K miles.doesn't seem to be weather related but did occur after noreaster the other day.But has happened with no rain also.Maybe broken coil or back plug wires or cracked cap.No misfires/rough run/power loss when it does start...runs fine.
