Question about Pontiac Sunfire
When I turn the key I get power to my radio, lights, and heater. And I when I turn the key it makes a er er noise
Are you saying the engine will not crank ? If yes, will it crank with a boost from another battery ? The battery or cables could be too weak to handle the power draw from the starter.

Are you certain that the engine is getting fuel? If not, then you will have to verify that there isn't any blockage in the fuel system to prevent the fuel from reaching the engine. If fuel is reaching the engine, try the following
1. Check compression values for each cylinder.
2. Inspect electrical circuitry in the distributor assembly (slack wires, broken wires, dmaged rotor etc)
3. Check to see if the timing belt was not severed. This belt transmits the drive from the crankshaft to the camshaft. If the belt ius severed, the camshaft cannot rotate in order to open the valves

even though you replaced it, fuel pump sounds bad....when you turn key on (not a crank)....do you hear a whirring noise from the fuel pump?

It sounds like you have a security problem, I had the same thing it would fire and run for half of a second and then that was it if anything at all. Had the security system rebooted, now it starts and runs fine.
