Your fuel pump uses the gas (petrol) to keep it cool, and when it ran out, the pump likely overheated. It will probably need replaced, and there is a high probability that there is sludge in the fuel filter as well, because all the sediment sinks to the bottom of the fuel tank, and if it runs out of fuel then it will **** up the sediment with the last of the fuel. So... 1) Replace the fuel filter. If it still won't start, you need a fuel pump.

try key on 10 time? (on, off, on....)
if the pump dont run keyon,(1/2 cars down) then it must be cranked to prime,or on some cars there is a DLC connector under hood
for pump hotwiring for just this. (oops 2000 dont have it...)
btw : the pump is fuel lubricated and cooled with fuel so you might have fused it (melted it guts out ) running it dry. dont.
id use a pressure gage to see if i could get spec pressure now.
alldata.com has the steps here.
check 12vdc to fuel pump
check all fuses. #13 and #31
fuel pumps need fuel to lubricate the little plastic gears that pump the petrol. No fuel=no lubrication= dead pump. Try a new pump and ensure that there is always enough petrol in the tank. It takes a lot less than 17 degrees to freeze petrol. Have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check pump operation. regulator operation and fuel filter.
you have probably got a blockage in either the fuel filter or carb,so first check filter,if ok check carb.take fuel line of carb turn engine over see if fuel comes out if it does then filter ok if not change filter,
if its an 86 then it will have no fancy factory alarm ,firstly check for a spark ,if it has a spark the pour a drop of petrol into air intake ,if it fires then a least you know weither you have a fuel problem or an electrical problem with a wireing connector or something
