Fuel pumps use the surrounding gasoline to keep them cool while in operation. If you ran the car with very little gas in the tank you may have burnt out the fuel pump motor. Try this simple test. Make sure you have at least a 1/4 tank of gas in the tank, gently tap on the fuel tank with a rubber maillot, then try to start your car. If the car starts, then you have a bad fuel pump. If the car does not start, rea peat the test two more times. Please vote for this solution if you found this information helpful.

1986 Buick LeSabre with 3.8L V6 died while driving. Engine cranks but will not start. Checked fuel pump, injectors, lines, plugs and wires. Spark appeared possibly weak on the LeSabre compared to the same...

do you get fuel pump pressure, should be about 40 psi what about compression and spark on a saturn would be stronger due to many reasons one of which being different voltage of coils

Try a crank sensor. Next time it stops pour or spray water on it and see if it will start. If it does you will know what you need.
