Vanagon concerns / Not starting after running out of gas
« on: December 29, 2011, 01:45:23 AM »
So this is an old post but I had some experience with this a bit ago and this may help some with same symptom as mine.  Yes, might have been air in the lines.  After running it out of gas at the bottom of my driveway, and putting gas back in, it would fire, but not idle and sputter.  I kept trying over and over to no avail.  Found I could keep the thing running if I kept the throttle pushed to at least 2000rpm.  Took the think up my 60 yard good incline driveway, and as I got to the top, bam! just smoothed right out.  No problem.  After asking around likely cause was an air bubble in the system.  Running up the hill probably helped.  Does this make sense to the pros out there?  I'm a newbie Vanagon owner(six months)
