Maybe not coincidence !!! Am professional truck driver who has been warned against running diesels out of fuel - causing permanent damage to the engine.

Basically, engines starved of fuel continue to combust "dry"..... without lubrication of combustion chambers, internal parts (valve seats, pre-comb chambers, etc) can get scorched.

Look for oil in your coolant system. Also check engine oil for water bubbles while engine is running.
