1996 Lexus SC300 Question: Engine will not start after car ran out of gas and was filled up

My kid ran the car out of gas, we pushed it to the gas station and refueled it, and now it just turns over, sounds like it wants to start, but will not engage. Could the computer need to be reset, or could it be the starter?

    I'm not a professional, so don't take my word for it, but honestly it sounds like your fuel pump and/or injector is garbage .. Have a shop close by run OBDII on it and see if they can't pull a code that gives you at least a good idea of what the problem is. I bring my pocket OBDII everywhere - it doesn't give you exact answers to your problems, but it at least gives you a good idea of where to start. Hope this helped :)
