If it has a fuel filter near the pump, remove it, and fill it up will fuel, and replace. You might want to check the owner's manual as it may have the other methods of restoring fuel pressure. Diesels are notorious for this, and some worse than others, just depending on the fuel system design.

Some have a bleeding valve close 2 the fuel filter-if so,open the valve & turn the key on for 5 seconds DON"T START IT ? IF that U may have 2 manually bleed the Injectors.

How do you start my 03 duramax diesel after running out of gas?

Remove the fuel filter, fill it with fuel... IIRC, the Duramax has an electric fuel pump... cycle the key in the "on" position a couple times to let it prime.This is, of course, assuming that, when you say "gas", you actually mean #2 Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel, which is the only fuel you should be using for that engine, especially if it's 2007 or newer.If you ran that diesel engine on gas you probably destroyed the engine. That's why it won't start.
