Does it cranks when you turn on the key to start.-------- If its not cranking then get the coil and spark plugs checked.-------- Also is the fuel pump coming on when you turn the key on.-------I agree fuel pump is replaced, but is it coming on when you turn the key to on.If the fuel pump is not coming on then get the fuel pump relay inspected in engine compartment fuse box under hood or give direct 12 volt power to fuel pump and turn on the key and see , if fuel pump runs or not.--------- ----------- when you start the car, does the starter gets power, test it with meter. Test the voltages to battery, starter and alternator.--- If battery is weak car will not start, if battery connections are dirty or loose car will not start.If battery to starter connection is loose car will not start, if starter is weak, the car will not start.If fuel pump is not getting voltage the car will not start.-------- So once you confirm that battery, starter , fuel pump all are getting power and all are working, then get the coil pack and spark plugs inspected.This will help.To confirm where the problem lies.Thanks.Helpmech.

engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only
for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the
transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in
most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory
of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as
the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done
is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system
for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for
engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained
technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then
based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the
correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer
replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other
basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with
the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine.
The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear
engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related
