HELP!!! Car stalled and won't start...

Pulling into a parking lot to drop my friends off at their cars tonight, I was coming over the incline to the lot and the car just shut off. Upon trying to restart it, the car turns over fine, power is good, but engine never fully kicks on. It sounds like it's not getting fuel. Can't hear the fuel pump prime at all either.

Couple of obvious questions...

1. Do you think this is a fuel pump issue?

2. Could the force of the car coming over the incline into the parking lot cause something to come loose on the fuel pump.

3. Car is still under 4 year/40,000 mile manufacturer warranty, so this should be covered right?


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have gas in the tank? No service lights come on?

There was roughly a gallon of gas left in it. I was headed towards the gas station when it happened. No service lights came on.

i would suspect you are out of gas, or rather, the amount in the tank is too little to be picked up by the pump. the incline you went up probably was enough to starve the pump
btw, you shouldnt let the tank run that low, running dry can damage the fuel pump as its cooled by fuel
