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.
more like fuel pump damaged. gasoline keeps fuel pump cool and lubricated if fuel tank run empty fuel pump will over heat which will destroy it. never run out of gas.fuel filter will get plugged with debris from fuel tank when tank runs empty all sediment botton tank will break up stop up fuel filter.
You probably got gunk from bottom of tank sucked into pump after you ran it to low and now it is blocking gas from getting past. Happens often when ppl run their vehicles out of gas. You will probably need to take pump out and clean screen.
I assume you put fuel in the tank. This car uses a small high pressure fuel pump to pump gas to the engine, this pump is located inside the fuel tank, the tiny pump depends on the gas it sits in for cooling and for lubrication, if you run out of gas you quickly damage the pump, in fact any time you run below 1/8 tank you cause it to run hot, so you might get away with running out of gas once or twice by you always run the risk of the pump freezing up from lack of lubrication and cooling when you run out of gas, which is what you have likely done.
THere is no gas in the fuel rail at the time gas is running out. WHen you fill the tank, it needs to pump for a while so fuel can fill up the rail then the Fuel distributor so it can build up pressure for the injectors to work properly. It need to continue cranking at least 2 minutes. However you don't want to run out the battery, so can just turn on the key to hear the sound of the fuel pump stops, then turn key off turn key on again. Repeat this for 6 times then start the engine. The reason for it is that every time the key is on it turns on the fuel pump to prime the line then turns pump off after a specific time, then it turns on again only when key is at ignition position. By doing this you help to pump gas into the fuel rail instead of the starter continue cranking draining down battery fast. Cheers.
I would look at the possibility of a clogged fuel filter first. Some contaminants from the bottom of the fuel tank may have clogged it up when the tank was run empty. It has been known to happen. Hope this helped and best wishes.
Here is the sad news, if you ran the truck out of gas chances are you destroyed the electric fuel pump in the tank, why? the fuel pump is very small, it is able to do it's job only because it is cooled by the gas it is submersed in, if you run out of gas or run very low allot it ruins the bearings in the pump and it freezes up, u will need to drop the gas tank and install a new fuel pump, I see this ALLOT!
