Ran out of fuel now no start

Yea I messed up. The low fuel light came on and no where to stop for 10 miles. I stopped and picked up my girls from daycare (on the way to the gas station) and when I started it back up in ran fine until I pulled out then it sputtered and died. Put 5 gallons of fuel in it started right up. Pulled out, ran it up to 50 mph, and it sputtered and died. I thought maybe it wasn't picking the fuel up so I put 5 more gallons in and now it won't hit a lick.
Its a 2003 6.0 with 137k, Egr delete, started having a cold start issue if its in the teens.
Knowing my luck its not something simple and my screw up is gonna cost me. Any help is greatly appreciated. Lets start with cheap simple fixes first please. If those dont work I'll start throwing big money at it.

Also, its pouring the rain here so I only popped the hood to make sure it something wasn't obviously wrong.

Re: Ran out of fuel now no start

Fill the tank full and change filters.
key on till pump stops. Cycle a bunch of times. You'll get fuel to upper bowl. Then you'll have to crank air out and diesel in

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

03s did not have low fuel protection! Not that it really works great for the newer models. You could be lucky and purging the air out might work, but the cab ride could have saved your injectors, if you didn't have to change them out to fix your cold start problem. As you probably already read, hydraulic over fuel injectors are not a simple purge like common-rail or older style systems to get a restart.

I have ar9100 in it now, put it in about 2,000 miles ago. It took the edge off but it still chugs on start up and chugs if I don't let it run for about 10 minutes before pulling out. I've been waiting on warm weather to change injectors becuase I don't have a garage.

Thanks for all the help so far. I get off work at 4 today so I'm going to go home and tinker with it in the daggum snow.

OK, I tried to start it this evening with no luck. It fired up for about 20 seconds chugged and quit. I kept trying till my batteries went dead. The fuel pump ran for about 30 seconds each time I turned the key on or after I tried starting it the pump would run for about another 30 seconds before it quit. Also, my fuel gauge went from 1/4 tank to the fuel light coming on. I know a bad a fuel pump on a gasoline engine will screw with the fuel gauge is it the same for a diesel?

No freaking luck. I did find out I had a bad battery so I replaced it and still no luck.
I read in another post a guy took his secondary filter lid off and fuel cane pouring out when he turned the key on, signaling a good fuel pump. I tried this with no luck. I don't have any way of checking fuel.pressure so is there a trick to see if ifs a bad pump?
