It ran out of diesel fuel and now it wont crank what should i do

I would try filling the fuel filter up with diesel. If that doesnt do it dump a little gasoline down its throat.

If it actually wont crank,
" like the engine isnt being turned over by the starter" your battery's are hopefully dead.

You dont want to crank on a diesel starter for more than 30 seconds or you will burn them up. I was tought to try and start it for 30 seconds or so then let cool back down for 5 minutes.

Depending on how long you tried to start it you may have burnt the starter up but I doubt it. If its the starter I would guess its bound up. You can either tap on it with a hammer or take it out and clean it up and have it tested and put it back in or replace it. Good luck

Oil ran out while driving..plug had came out. put oil & plug in & truck will not start. 2002 ford f250

You ran the truck out of oil? If so then you have seized the engine up and it wont start again. If your lucky the engine could be rebuilt using the same block but the internals will all need to be replaced.

After driving it doesnt want to start,acts like its not getting gas ....ive already changed the fuel pump,and the fuel pump relay,took it in for a diagnostic,but nothing is showing up,garage said they...

Is it a diesel engine? if so, there may be water in the fuel filter which needs draining out. Whether it's diesel or petrol there could be an air lock in the fuel system, particularly in the engine bay (check that flexible fuel pipes are not routed too near hot engine components like the exhaust). If they have been disturbed recently for servicing, they may not have been repositioned under the clips that keep them away from hot components.

My 206 1.9 diesel wont start

a diesel engine can only cutout when overheating, loss of diesel fuel and air leak in the fuel system. if you know how to bleed or ask somebody to bleed right after it stall, then start the car, if it starts immediately then it is sucking air.
