Loan a free computer scanner from one of the big auto chains and hook it up in the plug under the glove compartment. Write down any error codes and either read them in the manual or search for them on the web. Been there. Good luck.

I have a 97 geo metro 4 cyl engine the other day broke down the wrecker driver said sounds like fuel pump is bad. I replaced pump and filter still would not start. getting fire. Last night I started it...

first check fuses. (test them)
then check for spark at all 4 cylinders. good.?
if not timed correctly (spark) with timing light, then the cam belt slipped. (oops not changed at 60k, oops)
if all that is good engine runs on test fuel, does it?
if yes, you lost fuel.
easy huh, watch scotty

I backed out of the drive way today and put it in drive and the car died. We can not get it started. It sounds like it's out of gas. It's turning over but not firing? It ran great last night.

is it out of gas?? if not after cranking over engine pull out a spark plug if
there is fuel it will be wet and smell of gasoline. next thing will be to determine if the vehicl has spark-put the plug into the plug wire place the plug onto the engine block (away from fuel sources) and have
some one crank over the engine breifly-note that you could get a shock
if the spark plug is not properly grounded (if this happens then you r doing it wrong). watch for spark across the electode. engine needs three basic needs-air fuel and spark with that it will ****,sqeeze, bang and blow....the four stokes of a 4cycle engine.

My car wont start after replacing head gaskets.

Have you cleaned the spark plugs? they will surely be filthy after a headgasket failure... maybe even cracked by the water going on the hot plug... I recommend changing the plugs before trying anything else.
