Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Chevy Malibu my father told
me when he got it that it was sittibg fir a
while without being started and at first it
starts then after a while it dies and it won't
start back up and before I start it the fuel.
Gauge is showing that there is no gas in it
but ik there is about half a tank my father's
friend is telling me Its the engine module
other people are telling me it's a vacuum
leak or a bad fuel pump. I'm getting very
confused bc I'm trying to get my car up and
running but Idk what's wrong with it
