My 2006 hyundai santa fe 6 cylinder ran out of gas and now wont start.hionow do i unlock the fuel injection air lock

Fuel injection is self bleeding, so that is not the problem, it is my guess you burned out the in fuel tank fuel pump. The tiny pump depends on the cool gas to lubricate and cool itself, so running out of gas can very quickly destroy the fuel pump.

Yes, sounds like some debris is getting collected at the strainer and probably clogging the fuel filter. I would change the filter first and then go from there. Maybe that would save you from dropping the fuel tank again.

My 1984 toyota corolla ran out of gas now it wont idle

Quick explanation of your fuel system:

An automotive fuel system consists of everything between the fuel tank and the carburetor or fuel injection unit. This includes the tank itself, all the lines, one or more fuel filters, a fuel pump (mechanical, electric, or both), and the carburetor or fuel injection unit.
With the exception of the carburetor or fuel injection unit, the fuel system is quite simple in operation. Fuel is drawn or pumped from the tank through the fuel line by the fuel pump, which forces it through the fuel filter, and from there to the carburetor/injection unit where it is distributed to the cylinders.

So with that info...try first to clean your spark plugs.
Next, replace your fuel filter.
After that, depending on a carburetor/fuel injection, try an additive that cleans the injectors. For the carburetor, try a half of can of what is called "Seafoam". It comes in a metal can available everywhere, including Walmart. It is worth the $6-8 and also will "dry" out your fuel from water. Very good product.

After that, get back to us and let us know how your Toyota is running.
