Just wouldn't start in the morning change fuel pump because there was no pressure at the fuel rail plus you couldn't hear it kick on

Almost starting and having fluid sprayed in,i would think you are getting fuel,you are not getting fire,give me a few minute,s to try and diagnose your problem.

My advice would be pull a plug wire,and check for fire,when engine is turned over,if it fire,s wacth it for afew round,s to make sure it hold,s strong fire,if it loose,s it then check the crank sensor.
