If you can't hear the fuel pump when you first turn the key to "on", then it's not working. ANd if you have spark, then your problem is gas. Change fuel pump.

What are the suggested settings for the fuel air ratio screw and idle screw on a 1989 Subaru justy? And how do I go about getting it tuned to those settings, Do I start with them screwed all the way in and...

A standard rule of thumb for fuel mixture screws on most carburators is turn them in all of the way so they seat so don't over tighten them . Then turn them out 2 full turns then start the engine . Then keep turning out 1/8 th of a turn evenly until the engine reaches a speed over idle about 1000 RPMS . With the engine still running start turning them in slowly and evenly . The engine should slow down to idle at about 2 and a half to 2 and a quarter turns from the stop pisition . So when it starts to stumbly a bit its a little to lean so turn it out an 1/8 of a turn or so just do it evenly and you will be vary close to the setting keep in mind the setting will vary depending the ware inside the engine . The idle is a differant story depending on what you have for a control system . Some have a stepper motor that controls the idle and adjusting is limited to the stop screw and the adjustment on the motor . Look where the throttle cable attaches to the carbutator make sure your throttle plates can close all of the way this is not the plate on the top its the ones below it the ones that the adjustment screws for the mixture move when you adjust them in or out. The vehicle should if standard idle about 650 RPMS if automatic around 800 RPMS + or -50 or so RPMS . But it sounds more like you need to rebuild the carburator . you can get a kit for about 30 of 40 bucks and it comes with instructions and all new parts you will need . Just get a can of carb cleaner with the little red tube and spray it into all of the passages and ventures clean every thing and it should work like brand new . Its not that hard to do just follow the derections and don't loose any of the parts there kind of small

Car engine fails to start at times.

If the starter turns, i would presume that there is a problem with your ignition switch.
