I am a car dealer. I can't help you more than mechanics that Looked, and Touched your car. Guessing, I never try to fix cars.
In similar cases we send the car to the Ford Dealer for a check and advice ONLY. Is going to cost you $65 to $100 but you will get a good answer. Ford has thousands of dollars diagnostic systems, that small dealers cannot afford. Please do not rate me.I can't solve your problem. I'm giving you only a friendly advice. Good luck.

You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
