The engine cranks but it wont start. i pumped it just to see if i could get it to work and it started. then i drove it around the block and it died and would not start back up. do you think it is the fuel pump itself, or the engine control module (ecm)?

Open your fuel door put your ear to the filler neck remove the cap first turn the ignition on but not to start it you should be able to hear your fuel pump if ya hear it you might have a cloggef fuel filter oh if ya don't hear any thing frim your pump it may be toast

or cranks robustly (the crankshaft spins fast) but wont start.
all cars that dont start one, all ran when new. etc.
what counts is the now. only.
you need to do the tests. all covered in the FSM or at alldata.com
i cant help you because you . cuz did not say crank or start? so......
1: test all fuses. (not just gandering, use a meter)
2: check battery voltage 12.6vdc rested.
3: if not cranking, wiggle the shilter (a/t) or clutch if m/T
if a/t? try cranking in Neutral. cranks now? bingo.
4: cranks ok, and fast so check spark/
ill end there, due to vast number of tests and no clear stated
ever give it a full tuneup (60,000 mile service schedule?) or this DECADE. if not why ask the spark plug question.
There is a lot of types of starting fluid. Some is kind of safe....kind of!! Most will destroy your engine!! If you are using starting fluid on a Saturn, you really need to stop. Your fuel pressure could be incorrect. The fuel pump relay could be bad, or a fuse. Your fuel pump may be going out. Listen to your fuel pump when you turn the key to the "run" position before turning the starter over. You shoulh hear a 2 second buzz from the fuel pump. If you don't hear this , you have a fuel pump issue.
most likely a fuel issue, could be a bad pump... turn the key to the on position and listen for the hum of the pump kicking in, if there is no hum it is most likely you fuel pump needs to be replaced or you have a bad electrical connection to it.
If it hums there may be a blockage somewhere in the line.
letting a gas tank run under 1/4 tank can burn out a fuel pump, the gas in your tank actually insulates the pump and helps keep it cool.
If u hear the engine cranking in the AM, the batt & alt sound good. If you don't get any engine cranking in the am you may have an electrical short draining the battery. Before u convict the starter u must make sure the battery has full power in the AM. (12V) & 12 V to the starter
You might need to get a mechanic to check voltage and fuel pressure at the fuel pump these cars have lots of fuel pump issues, you might also want too make sure that there is no exposed wiring on the drivers side kick panel or you could short out your fuel pump....
running low on fuel with a electronic fuel pump is not a wise idea that can cause the fuel pump to run dry and lock up!! also can airlock the fuel lines check the fuel filter to see if it's clogged up! also losen the fuel line at the filter and crank the engine to see if its pumping if not then change the pump
