Why will a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am not start after running out of gas?

If this engine is fuel injected, there is a strong possibility that the fuel injectors have become plugged by the fine sediment that accumulates in the bottom of a gas tank. Running a fuel injected motor out of gas can be a very expensive mistake, as the injectors have to be removed by a mechanic and cleaned if they have become fouled. A reputable garage will charge 250 to 300 dollars to perform this procedure.
