You may have a plugged up fuel filter, which happened when fuel level dropped very low, and pump pulled in crud from the bottom of the tank.
Replace the fuel filter and see it that fixes it. Let me know either way, I'll help if needed.

    If the fuel filter doesn't fix it, you may have to replace the fuel pump. The gas in the tank actually keeps the pump from overheating and it may have failed.

Does it start soetimes? Has it been down all this time? Is it got enough gas? the gauge can be wrong. fuel pumps and gauges are failing alot as the tequies used to steal gas are breking things that peaple don't think about. Peaple steal gas to get to the job they haven't gotton yet. It's getting bad out there It was only once in a while I found this problem but now it's everyday. One in 5 no starts are out of gas and most of the peaple said they keep the tank full ( thier thief knows you and gets plenty, then next htings you know he bends the fuel gauge sender and takes all you gas or you don't but more as you think you have some and you don't.

look for the fule rail on top of the motor there should be a release looks like a tire vavle stem push that in and see if you can get fuel to come out that should purge your fuel system if that doesnt work then your fuel pump may have gone out

you have goten air in the fuel system. you need a friend to help out with this. but if you open the hood and look on the intake the fuel rail. you should see some thing that looks just like a tire stem cap remove this cap and make sure you have safty glasses turn the key to one and then push the little plunger down under that cap. you will have to do this until a nice stream of fuel comes out with out the air. now be carefull and remember this is a pressurized fuel line so were safty glasses

Car wont start after running out of gas


Try a new fuel filter. you most likely sucked up some junk or maybe water from the tank when it ran out. Check fuel pump make sure it runs.
