You need to find out if the fuel is reaching the cylinders and if the spark plugs are firing. Pull the spark plug wire off one plug. Insert a phillips head screwdriver into the end of the spark plug wire and ground it against a metal engine part. Try to start the car while observing the screwdriver. There should be a spark jumping from the screwdriver to the engine. If there is no spark, you will need to do further troubleshooting to find out why. Now, remove the spark plug that the wire cam from and check it for wet fuel. If the engine is getting fuel the plug will be wet with gasoline. If the plug is dry, Then either your fuel pump is not working or the fuel filter is plugged up. Let me know what you find and I will help you with further troubleshooting.

shoot some starting fluid in the air intake and try to start again. If it starts you have a fuel problem. If still no start could be an ignition problem.

SOURCE: 2002 pontiac grand am, new fuel pump and filter, wont start

Is the security light active? If yes it will have to get reprogrammed by the GM dealer as GM has this as a propriatory system... Meaning no one else can work on it.

How do you know it's getting Fuel? Sure sounds like it is not getting fuel since the car will Giggle when Starter Fluid is added.

Seems like no fuel reaching motor, possible block in fuel filter?

The fuel line from the tank, the fuel pump, to the fuel filter and the fuel injection system , pump and injectors must be checked ONE BY ONE.
However the fuel filter must be changed in a span of about at least 10000 miles or much earlier if the fuel has dirt .
A code check can determine your fault and your electrical system must also be looked into.

The engine is turning over but it will not start. It seems to not be getting fuel.

could be the fuel filter or fuel pump. to check the pump remove the fuel line from in front of the filter and put a container in front of the line to catch any gas, turn engine over and see if you get gas pumping from tank. if so try replacing filter.

After replacing fuel pump car still stalls occasionally when turning or stopping,also pump seems to run most of the time and is noisy

Did your also replace the fuel filter. Clogged fuel filters are one of the major causes of premature fuel pump failures. If you did replace the filter then look at the fuel pressure regulator.

Not gettig fuel

your fuel pump is weakening. If you have new filter and the fuel isn't flowing to the injector, the problem is the fuel pump.
