97 Acura RL won't start

Asked by Mar 09, 2011 at 10:12 PM about the 1997 Acura RL 3.5L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I came home one night and 10 min. later came out to leave and my car wouldn't start. Sounded like it wasn't getting fuel. So so far I replaced the Fuel pump (was bad) and the Fuel Relay. Problem is, It still is not starting. Could it be the furl filters or what? Any thoughts? Need help fast... Thank you

ignition..? I assume it is turning over, so the next line of questioning is the ignition, then the distributor, then plugs and wires, as the problem, 100% is in the spark / fuel category, good luck
