Subject: fuel pump woes: no pressure = no start

As the subject line says, there's no pressure in my fuel line, so no start. I do hear the fuel pump start up just before the key hits the start position, and I can hear the pump while cranking. Could there be some dirt clogging the intake ? Some history: I was running the tank low (bad move, I know) and stopped on the shoulder of the road, car leaning slightly to one side. Then it stalled. That's when I think the pump may have sucked crud. Will crud settle out of the pump or do I need to remove it and rinse the intake? Haven't been able to start the engine since. Any suggestions appreciated to Don't have regular access to this group. Thanks, chris ault 78 99 85 900 87 9000 T
