I ran out of gas, refueled and now it wont start. The engine cranks but wont start. I replaced fuel pump & filter 4 months ago. Back then the pump made a consistent loud whine prior to failing. When I turn the key it runs for 2 sec. And stops. Can it be a coinsidence that either the pump or regulator would go bad at the same time I run it out of gas? Is there some kind of switch or something that is keeping it from starting?

Check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel pump
