SOURCE: car starts and stalls

The chance of the Power Train Control Module (PCM) failing is very small, about 3% per industry research, so expert ndguy2481 is giving bad advice, it is more likely the crankshaft position sensor or the ignition module have a problem when they warm up. Run a test on the PCM to retrieve the trouble codes, I know there will be some. The connector to do this test is under the dash below the steering wheel under the dash panel.

No fuel pump reset switch on a Jimmy. If your pressure goes up to normal, then drops back down after 2 seconds, you need a new fuel pump as the return is not working correctly to keep fuel in the lines.

SOURCE: Car ran outof gas. put gas in, would not start.

Perhaps your fuel injectors are not opening properly to release the air pressure in the fuel rail and the fuel is unable to get in. With the vehicle off, remove the cap from the Schrader valve (the same kind of valve used on tires) in the fuel rail, then depress the pin in the center of the valve with a small screwdriver. CAUTION: this may be under high pressure (some vehicles have 90 PSI systems), and there probably will be gasoline in there. Make sure there are no ignition sources present (no smoking!) and wear safety glasses. If you get only air or nothing comes out, put the cap back on the valve and try to start the car one more time. If that doesn't work, your fuel pump was probably damaged when the tank went dry.

If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

You have your answer in your title...the fuel pump. For replacement directions, you're better off obtaining a Hayne's Repair Manual from AutoZone. They go into great detail in that area.

Cannot turn the ignition key on my 2006 Saturn ION


A super common problem with these cars, Scott. Replace the ignition and have it greased liberally when it goes in. Eventually the things get so bad they bind up and no longer work. we do 200+ Ions a year and they all get lubed or replaced before they leave the lot.
