Welcome to Just I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal.
There is a pump on top of the fuel filter housing by the passenger side valve cover. If you ran it out of fuel, you're going to have to do some extensive pumping to get fuel to the injector pump. There is no fuel pump in the vehicle. The injector pump pulls fuel to it. When their is air in the lines it cannot pull fuel.
