hi yesterday i ran out of petrol, Vauxhall Corsa Merit 'p' i today put fuel in (around halfway in the red) i go to start the engine and it ticks like an engine does when starting but doesnt catch and start up, what is the cure, could it be there is not enough fuel in there? or any other suggestion....

any help would be appreciated

charge your battery, probably doesnt have enough to start car, Im guessing you ran out of petrol, tried starting car few times, and that killed batery, get some jump leads, and sure be good to go

Thats why I said charge it, / get bump start, if battery dead chargin will sort, if starter motor is goosed, then bump start will be sorted

fail.

put ignition to 2, get it moving as before, clutch down, 2nd gear, 10 or so mph.... pull the ****ing clutch up and give it some gas....

brace for juddery start, do not let the engine stall
