Unfortunately, you may have just learned an expensive lesson. It's
not like the old days with many fuel pumps now. Quoting from
"The primary way fuel pumps fail is by running your car or truck out
of gas. Since the fuel is used to lubricate the fuel pump, running the
car out of gas will burn up the fuel pump very quickly."
I hope yours is only a priming issue and not a burned out pump.
I am not clear whether the vehicle is petrol or diesel fuelled. On my diesel
Trooper I kept pumping the manual fuel pump located on top of the fuel
filter, as there is a fuel return pipe to the tank I presumed that most air
in the fuel delivery system would be pushed out. It worked for me.
