I have an 02 Oldsmobile Alero and we changed the fuel filter and the car worked for several days and then this morning it acts like it wants to crank but will not turn over. Is it my fuel pump or alternator? Help!

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car would not start last week, so we changed the fuel filter and it worked for several days, now today it is doing the same thing.  It acts like it wants to start, but it doesn't.  Is it my fuel pump or alternator? Someone told me the fuel pump would just go out completely not sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.  I don't know what to do or check... I hate to replace the fuel pump and then it do the same thing.  HELP!!

It could be the Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor.I have seen the fuel pump screen plugged with rust and stuff also. Have someone check fuel pressure. Make sure the fuel cap is tight.
