Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car ran out of gas. I put in 5 gallons after people saying it
needed that much to start after running out. Well still won't
start...any ideas as to why it won't?  It will turn over, it gets fire,
but won't start.

Yes check pressure you most likely burned out fuel pump from running out of gas.
