Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu
The fuel pumps don't like to be run out of gas. They use the gas in the tank to stay cool. I would bet you ruined the fuel pump especially if you have never changed the fuel filter.
Try this. With the car in park have somebody crank the car over while you smack the fuel tank with a rubber mallet about dead center and a little to the rear of the tank. If the car starts you will be replacing the fuel pump. Don't wait for it to stop running again. This is a do it yourself trick to see if the fuel pump is bad and is not a repair!
