Answers :

So do you know if you have gas in your tank or not? You need to check for fuel pressure to make sure your pump is working. Inside you fuel tank is a fuel pump module which consists of your fuel pump and fuel level sender. It sounds like you are going to need to replace that. Can you hear your fuel pump buzzing. Open you gas filler cap and put your ear next to it while having a helper turn the key to the run position not start position. You should hear it run for about 5-10 seconds and then shut off. If you don't hear it you have a problem with your pump. It can be with the wiring, feul pump relay, or the pump itself. It is usually the pump. But even if you can hear the pump you still need to check your fuel pressure as the pump may be buzzing but not working correctly. Also check your fuel filter.
