SOURCE: replaced fuel pump but it
hi :) Some times when you replace a fuel pump you have to turn the engine over till the air is pumped out of the fuel lines. I spray gas into the air intake with a spray bottle while someone else is turning the engine over to help me prime the fuel lines. if you don't get the engine to fire with the spray bottle there is no spark and you need to look else where for the problem.

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.

As with any no-start issue, you will need to figure out if you have a problem with fuel pressure to the injectors, or spark to the plugs.
I would also check the computer for trouble codes.
Let me know what you find out.
