google the codes you have posted here
codes P0303 and P0302 lexus 300
these are cylinder misfire codes. There is a procedure for this but I would suggest you rad that and follow directions before going the compression test route. The other thing you said was that all this started when you ran out of fuel. Could be you burned out the fuel pump or the pump sucked the junk up off the bottom of the tank and is now plugged up. So many choices but if it was me, I would start with the fuel pump before I started tearing into the motor.

Hope this helps.

Ground the RED / GREEN (-) wire.
This will DisArm the Factory Alarm until the Ground is removed.
You can try (does not always work):
Be sure battery is fully charged
Disconnect Negative Battery Cable
Open Driver Door & LEAVE Open
Turn Ignition Switch ON & LEAVE On
Reconnect Negative Battery Cable
Alarm may sound for a few seconds
Start vehicle

Why didn't you ask your mechanic what this was? I never heard of a PVS. I have heard of a PVC valve, but that is not likely to fail your smog test. Does the car have any trouble codes?

Did you attach everything back the way it was before you took it apart? Sometimes those abs sensors get ruined in the process. Diy on my car and messed it all up. Try disconnecting battery to reset it if you think everything was put back correctly.
