Re: 2003 escalade will not start after running it out of...
My wife ran out of gas once and I had to bleed the fuel lines of air that had been sucked in before gas would travel through the lines. Kinda like you would have to bleed air out of hydraulic brake lines.

Turn the key to run and listen to see if the electric fuel pump is running. If it is, allow it to run for 30 seconds before turning the key to start. This will allow the pump to push enough fuel to the fuel rail so the injectors have something to spray.
Sounds like the fuel pump going bad. You will need to check to make sure you have the correct fuel preasure for at least 10 mins. You can find a fuel preasure tester at any auto parts store. Same thing happened in my 2002 Escalade, replaced the fuel pump for around $650.00. Good luck
you must make sure the fuel is getting to motor, check the fuel preasure after it dies check preasure or try spraying starting fluid in throtlebody to see if it a fuel problem, if it doesnt start then check for spark at the plugs,the most common problems are fuelpumps or control modules going bad,
bleed the injector / fuel rail, a small valve that looks almost like a tire valvestem, turn the ignition from off to on a couple of times and use a small screwdriver to push down the valve ( make sure you are messing with the fuel system and not the AC!) also be aware that highly pressurized fuel may come out. the symptoms you describe are also that of a fuel pump going out.
The fuel pressure should be 60 to 65psi in your system with the engine not running and fuel line primed, (ignition key's to the run position). Once engine is running the fuel pressure should drop by 5psi, change the fuel filter and recheck the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. it's known for the fuel pump to fail when the gas tank runs low or out of gas, the pump will end up burning it self out since the gas is what keeps the electric fuel pump cooled. The other thing to is putting gas through the top of the throttle body to start the engine on the SEFI is a NO NO, well a BIG NO NO. it's been know for the gas in the intake to catch fire and burn up the poppet valve in the injection system causing the replacement of the fuel injection system. Keep me posted and good luck, be gald to help you get your truck running again for the july 4th. OH and it was not mentioned but did the fuel filter get replaced???
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.
