Try using some starting fluid it is possible that the fuel pump burnt out from running dry, if starting fluid works then it is a fuel problem ie air in the line, clogged filter, bad regulator, damaged jet, clogged jets, no pressure , .....

Check the basics. Spark? Fuel delivery? Compression? ECU providing injector pulse (use noid light to check).

Ran out of gas wont start now

if its petrol engine bang bottom of fuel tank while some one else cranks vehicle over if it starts good just pump jammed if it dont buzz to life and you cant hear fuel pump buzzing ceck for power to it if thats there replace pump. running out of fuel kills electric fuel pumps internally in petrol tanks.

if its diesel you must bleed fuel system taking extreme care if you un do lines some very high pressure

2001 Xterra - Replaced fuel pump twice and is still not running.

I am no expert, but I just had a similar problem. The car would shake and buck when accelerating. It finally just died and would not start. After sitting for some time, the car would start and run a while, then do the same thing. I thought fuel pump. The dealer diagnosed distributor. After replacing, the car is running perfect. Something to think about. Good luck.
