Fuel pump

Buddy has a 7.3 ... His boys ran it all but out of fuel ...said it had started acting up when they pulled up to the pump...after filling Trk up they drove it 3 miles and shut it off . Now it won't start... No fuel getting to the filter bowl . When you turn the key you cannot hear the pump . Fuse ok , reset switch is ok .... Any ideas? Pump dead ? ...

Re: Fuel pump

Its possilble the lift pump went out, it was damaged when they ran it empty. You never wanna run outta fuel in a diesel, lots of things can happen.
