on the top of the engine there is a plastic cover. it will raise up and the fuel filter is accessible underneath there is a little blue switch, it is to let water out of the system. this was an easy fix for my boss's f350 service truck.

By running it dry, you may have also allowed air or sediment to enter the fuel system.You might have to bleed the fuel system and avoid running it dry, especially in cold climates. There should be procedure info. online for your vehicle.

Try turning your key to prime fuel pump 3 or 4 times 30 seconds each, do not start. Also replace fuel filter.You will hear air, then all fuel entering. When you hear fuel, engine should start. Good luck.
