First 2 codes are lean left and lean right bank... due to no gas in the system...

As for the other code look it up on Google. or OBDcodes.com

P1460: Cooling Fan Circuit (except Catera)/Misfire Detected With Low Fuel (Catera)

Try some gas. also CEL codes are very available online. just google "catera" and whatever your code is.

I would try giving it a basic "tuneup" like fill it up with 93 octane, take out the spark plugs and scrub em with a brass bristled brush. Put the key in the "on" position and leave the car alone for 3 full minutes and the throttle will reset and rediscover Idle and WOT positions.

You think your fuel pump may be going out?

Sometimes when you run low on fuel the fuel pump will suck up a bunch of crap form the gas tank and send it down the fuel system... so taht will either clog up your fuel filter or your injectors.

My GFs Stratus ran out of gas as I pulled up to the gas station and it sputtered and died... then we tried starting it and it took a while, and when it started it had terrible idle and it was sputtering and hesitating like crazy... lucky us after 3-4 miles of driving it went back to normal.

ok update i put a fuel pressure gauge on it. it only builds up fuel pressure as im cranking and after cranking it 3 good times it finally builds up enough to start. now after it starts it only has 25 psi no matter if i rev it or not it says at 25 psi. i guess my next question is should i start by replacing the fuel filter and if that does work i guess next is the fuel pump correct need some anwsers. thanks

well i removed the pump and found the rubber hoses inside the pump have became gooey due to it sitting in gas for a while
