ok,

most likely the fuel pump has failed. it is not putting out proper pressure.

the damage comes from running out of fuel. gas the oil for the fuel pump engine. if it runs dry, it damages the pump.

you will need to replace the pump.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
