Question about Cars & Trucks
I presume you put some gas in the tank after it ran out of gas?
Could be many things. If you want to DIY you need a repair manual. You need to read or have the error codes read by your favorite auto parts store. My wild guess is a bad mass air flow meter. I had one fail, and the symptoms sound similar.

With electric pumps, when you run them dry it can damage them. You may have just picked up some rust or stuff sitting in the bottom of the tank. This could be clogging your fuel supply. several things can be done, if so equipped have the injectors cleaned, add a fuel cleaner to your tank such as seafoam, change fuel filters. If it were me I would start with the seafoam, than filter or filters. Than you may consider checking fuel pressure. Just somewhere to start good luck

I had the same problem, it ended up being a fuel level sensor, if you run the car at low fuel level numerous times it goes bad. I had it replaced and runs great.

Have you ran a diagnotic check to see what codes are coming up?
Throwing parts at the problem will get expensive. It will also ruin other parts (Like your catalytic converter), when your engine is misfiring and not running properly. Your vehicle is an OBDII system, fix the problems in the order they appear (then clear, run and recheck)...meaning, one problem can cause another and so on. Fixing one problem may correct the other ones too.
You may get lucky with the shotgun approach, but usually not.
Run a diagnostic test, at least you'll know where to start looking for the problem.
