I ran out of gas in my 2001 suburban and I changed the relay and it still won't start. Is there anything else I can do to fix it besides replacing my fuel pump?

    Need to have a tech check the fuel pressure and the safety shut off switch before changing any parts, but sometimes when these pumps run out of fuel its burns up the pump because it uses fuel for lubrication
