Chances are fairly high that the fuel pump is shot and before it went out totally it fired the relay, it may click but the contact points are burnt out, so replace the fuel pump, strainer, fuel filter and the relay and you should be good to go.

You can do it yourself if you some mechanical ability and the fuel line tools. Try pricing it as an assembly, sometimes it is cheaper that buying the parts separately

I had that same car the repair in a shop is 500 and up not a hard job to do with a little patience sorry i got rid of mine
