Default 88 Honda accord problems?

My cousin just got an 88 accord from our grandfather, the car had been setting for years but ran great when we drove it. We made it to our destination but ran out of gas. The car will not start but when it does (rarely) it will only idle for 2 min or so. You cannot press the gas or it will die, so do you think it could be the filter? Plus where would the filter be??

The first thing I'd do for sure is change the fuel filter bec they will tend to be dirty or dry up especially if the car sat several yrs.It's located under hood, driver side, front side of strut tower, mounted on fenderwell in fuel line.You're lucky bec their only about a 10 dollar part at autozone or other part stores, lus their fairly easy to change.Note that the dirt. moister from the bottom of the tank would help to clog the fuel filter but the fuel pump maybe faulty, also check the fuel pump relay, plus don't forget to check the air filter etc.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way you should check the fuel pressure after you change the fuel filter and make sure you've plenty of fuel in the tank.Note you may want to add some fuel treatment and run through that tank of gas then change the fuel filter again.
