Gleneda, if your car isn't turning over, (meaning the engine won't spin) changing out the fuel pump was the wrong choice. That has nothing to do with the engine turning over. But since we now know that you have plenty of fuel, that will help. If your car will not crank, what you should be looking at is a bad battery, loose connections, corrosion of the cables, ignition switch. The first thing to do is charge your battery overnight with a charger. In the morning, put a volt meter on the battery and see if it reads 12 volts. If so, you know your battery is fully charged. If you turn the ignition and get nothing, the next step is to jack up the car, locate the starter, have someone hold the key to the ON position like they're starting the car. As they hold the key, you want to rap the starter with a hammer. If the car suddenly turns over, you have a bad starter that needs replacement. From reading your description, it sounds like your engine is turning over, but it's not firing up. As in the engine cranks over repeatedly, but it's not starting. You also state that the fuel pump is not getting any power. Do you have an alarm system? if you have any flashing lights on the dash, most likely the alarm system has disabled your fuel pump. Post back with results.....
