If your engine cranks over but does not fire, that could be a list of things too many to list but the easiest and most simple thing to do first is if your 100% sure it has enough gas your fuel filter may be plugged depending on your last time you changed your fuel filter it could be something as simple as that. Specially if you ran the fuel tank dry alot of times settlement sits on the bottom of the tank from years and when you run a tank dry it will suck all that stuff up and plug your fuel filter. Again this is only in some case and I would start with that first from there you can check to see if it has spark....so many things it could be depending on your knowledge level of automotive repair you might want have it towed to a dealer.
