Most likely the fuel pump is burned out. The gasoline flowing through the pump motor cools and lubricates the motor. If allowed to run dry the motor can burn out pretty quickly! Hope that helps! Jim

There should be a Shrader valve in the fuel rail but you should not need to use it if everything else is working properly.
