Re: Ran out of gas. Put gas into SUV but still will not...
The fuel pump has most likely frozen up from overheating it, the pump (located in the fuel tank) is cooled by the gas it is submersed in, anytime the tank is run lower than 1/4 the pump gets hot from coming out of the gas in the tank, this shortens the life allot. You are going to have to replace the pump.

Some vehicles need a substantial amount of fuel put in the tank after they have run out, Sounds daft that they will completely empty the tank, but won't restart unless you put a minimum of 10 litres back in. Most modern tanks are fitted with a swirl pot that cools unused fuel returned to the tank. Try putting extra fuel in it.
Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.
probably needs to be primed. Sometimes it takes a few minutes for fuel pump to get fuel up to injectors. That or fuel filter is clogged, when you run the tank almost dry any sediment and dirt gets sucked into fuel pump.
It depends on how far you ran it out of fuel. If you ran it until it would not run any more and then tried to start it again several times; you may need to bleed and prime the fuel system to get it started. You start at the line coming from the tank and move toward the fuel injectors. You have to loosen a fitting and have someone pump fuel until the air bubbles stop and then tighten. A friend once worked for two hours to get his tractor started after his daughter ran it out of fuel. This is why they recommend that you do not run a fuel injected car out of fuel and if you do to turn it off as soon as it starts to miss badly.
Sounds like fuel pump burned out when you ran out of gas. probably ran dry for about 20 sec till engine quit. Check for power to fuel pump in tank.Most likely fuel pump will need replacement . Hope this helps
if you have high milieage you may have sucked in the gunk on the botton of your tank when you ran out of fuel check if you can hear the fuel pump running for about 2 sec with key on engine off if you hear nothing the problem is with your pump as they will burn out if they run dry for too long,if you hear the pump check for fuel pressure if pressure low check fuel filter to see if clogged by gunk from bottom of tank.
i will put 5 gallons of gas then have some one turn the ignition on while listening to the water pump if you hear a noise coming from the fill up hole then most likely your water pump is good is not i will check fuel pump rellay and fuse replace as necesary check pupm sound if no sound replace fuel pump.
