It could be no spark - it could be no fuel. Spray some starting fluid in the intake to see if it has spark.

Are you sure it has fuel? Replacement fuel pumps have a fairly high failure rate. If it starts with starting fluid, it likely isn't getting fuel. When you turn the key to ON (without starting the car) can you hear a whining noise from the fuel tank area? If not, you fuel pump may be bad again. Ultimately it could be just about anything based on the given description. If the check engine light is on, get the codes read and post them for better advice.
