my son let my 2006 pt cruiser run out of gas now it wont start does anyone know what could be wrong?
MAKE SURE THAT THE TIMING BELT ISNT BUSTED. THEIR IS A SMALL COVER ON THE DRIVER SIDE THAT CAN BE REOVED TO SEE IF THE CRANK SHAFT IS TURNING IT HAS 2 BOLTS ON THE DRIVER SIDE OF THE HEAD.
The most common problem when any of today's vehicles run out of fuel is the in tank fuel pump, the pump uses the fuel as a coolant, when you drop below 1/4 tank the pump gets exposed and it starts to exceed its normal operational temperature thus overheating it until it fails. You can try banging on the fuel tank while someone cranks it, sometimes this will get it to start so you can get it to a repair shop but it most likely won't start again after it is shut off. HTH
Thank you Maintenaceman it was the timing belt, now to check if it froze the water pump i will be tearing into it today Thanks!!!
