My car has 102456 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You should first try to replace the fuel filter and then with fuel line disconnected test to see if the fuel pump is pumping close to 5 psi of fuel pressure and is pumping fuel. When the vehicle ran out of fuel the pump may have been damaged and not pumping fuel and need to replace the pump.
