Is the check engine light on? you could have a bad ignition fail sensor, TPS sensor, or bad o2 sensor. it could also be a bad mass air flow sensor or a vacuum leak. without a code to help pin point the problem I'd start by checking those things first. Maybe try unplugging the mass airflow sensor and start it up and see if anything changes.
Have you checked the injector rail with a gauge to know for sure the injectors are not getting fuel ? If the pump is running but not pumping fuel I would think it is a clogged filter or screen in the tank.
try check the fuel pump outside the tank area check both the old one as well as the new one add power to the terminals outside the tank you could have a bad new pump or a bad connection going into the pump
Sounds like your not getting any fuel..Listen for the fuel pump,by removing gas cap and put your ear up to it..cycle the key without starting it and listen for the pump..sometimes you can beat on the bottom of the tank and it will jarr the pump and it will start running again..Not a fix but a conformation
remove and clean carbon from idle control valve, it may be sticking, and also check fuel filter for clogging up. as for the injectors a good injector cleaner used often, usually helps quite a bit. I own a 2000 malibu and it idles at 700 to 750 rpms. 3.1 v6. the dealers want to rip people off! thats my opinion. good-luck!! add injector cleaner at least once a month.
fuel pump is burned out from running out of gas, the pump is cooled by the gas it sits in inside the fuel tank, when you run low on fuel or out of gas you over heat the pump severely and the bearings in the pump seize up, have seen it dozens of times in my 30 years of dealer work.
