Not sure about this as its got lots of electronic sensors and telling you it could be one or the other and they are not cheap,also its difficult to tell without being hands on so to speak.Basicly the fuel is pumped at pressure into the common rail which feed the injectors,pump is working when you crank engine so thats fine (pressure) now the ECU unit is controling it and when the fuel is injected ,but on older cars its spraying all the time.which i think your is.Now lift bonnet and on the end of the common rail is a round valve with a vacumn pipe on it,make sure this pipe is on and the ends not split and it has a vacumn in it when you crank the engine.Sorry dont do call outs outside alicante zone (spain) If pipes seem ok then its a garage job as it could be a manky wire inside a connection plug corroded .Best of british with it.

2001 Galant..Shut off while parked and not it won't start!

That sound you hear, does it sound like it is coming from the back of the car, fuel tank? This is most likely the fuel pump starting up. I would still have your fuel pressure checked, if too low you'll have issues. If fuel pressure is good it most likely has to do with the electronics; does it have spark? Remove a spark plug lead and check while cranking the engine over. Also it is possible the timing belt failed, remove a dust cover off the cam, crank over and be certain it rotates. My gut says you have an electrical issue, such as cam or crank sensor. You'll need to check cseveral items to confirm.
If I may be of further service, please ley me know.
