1997 Lexus es300 Wont stay running

Recommended Posts

My daughter ran her 1997 Lexus ES300 out of gas and now it won't stay running.  It will run for about 12 miles before shutting down.  Then if we leave it for about 3 hours it will go again.

Any thoughts about what might be wrong?  Fuel pump? Relay? Filter?

Running out of gas can fry fuel pumps in modern cars (pump overheats) and this is one of the symptoms of a bad fuel pump.  Sounds like you need a new one.
