Car won't idle after running out of gas.


Asked by Jul 09, 2016 at 07:15 PM about the 1987 Subaru GL 4WD Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I drive a 1987 Subaru go hatchback 1.6L. I
ran completely out of gas the other day and
after refueling my car idles very poorly. Then
it stopped idling completely. I used a
seafoam cleaner to push through any debris
that may have been sucked up by the pump
and have replaced the filter but now my car
still will not idle at all. Not sure where to go
from here. Any help?
