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.

What happened we changed fuel filter on 2003 Dodge Sprinter and can't get it to start on the diesel fuel seems not to be getting fuel to engine can start with ether starting fluid?

The 2003 Sprinter has a mechanical fuel pump on the engine. While changing the filter you have airlocked the fuel system. The way I restart them is to apply suction to the return hose on the filter(look for arrows) and pull on it until you get fuel. Had this problem on 2002 sprinter, the problem was the sensor on the bottom of the filter not connected properly

Which is better GM Duramax diesel or Cummins Dodge. What are some opinions?

It depends on what you're asking they are better about. the Duramax is cheaper to upgrade and has better fuel mileage and stock the Duramax triumphs over the Cummins in torque and horse power. but there is a lot of stuff you can do to them both but the Duramax is all around less expensive. and as to which one lasts longer that can vary, the Duramax has proven to be a very reliable engine but the Cummins also has one heck of a reputation. Cummins= 350hp, 650 ftp of torque Duramax=365hp, 660 ftp of torque
