sounds like a plugged fuel filter and/or dead fuel pump.

That sucks and I just change that around Easter time

Then, check your fuses. and just to be clear you changed your fuel filter and your fuel pump!?

I had a lot of things go crazy on mine. If your fuel pump is running, it might not be sending. Pump maybe running but not sending. You should be able to buy the sending unit and not the hole set up. Check your fuel pump relay fuse also, to be safe.
