Refer to the vehicle owners manual for the location of fuel shut switch and its reset procedures if specified, otherwise you'll likely need a new fuel pump / sending unit, don't forget to change the fuel filter while you are at it, the fuel filter is located behind the rear axle ( passenger side ) , the vehicle repair manual is very helpful.

Yes, it could be the Neutral safety switch. Try popping the clutch a few times. Push it in and let it pop out and make sure you have it in Neutral. Also, try jumping the vehicle. It is possible to have all the volts in the world and everything looks good but not have enough amperage in the battery due to a dead cell to crank the motor over.
Threads are standard. I use a 1/2" drive breaker bar on the bolt. Position the bar so that if you turn it clockwise it will hit the ground or the car frame. Then I turn the ignition to start for just a moment, cranking the engine over with the starter which will loosen the bolt. DO NOT let anyone hold the bar or stand anywhere near it if you try this technique. I have done it many times with no problems.
Was there any shimms between starter and engine block, where it bolts up? If there was they need to be put back in. Sounds to me that the starter is to close to the block, and the teeth on the starter drive are not engaging the flywheel. If there was none get some and try it, any auto parts sell them they come in differnt sizes in thousands of an inch. You should be able to buy them in a package.
Hi, I had the same problem with my girlfriend's 97' sunfire, it wouldn't start so I jumped the starter terminals which I think screwed it up even more (causing the theftlock light to come on). It turns out this is a common problem that can be solved by hooking up a GM Tech2 scanner, going under "body" codes, and following the instructions for bypassing the PASS LOCK SOLENOID. Hope you find this helpful, Byron
the fuel pump will show failure usally under load. when the car needs more gas. should idle fine but when you accelerate it will putt. hope it helps. maybe a starter cylinoid. you said it doesnt crank? if it does crank always check spark and fuel first. could be cps.(crankshaft position sensor)
