I have a 2000 GT manuel transmission and it wouldn't start today.  On these years are you suppossed to be able to hear the fuel pump kick on when you to turn the key to the on position?
The car is rotating, but just not starting.
I'm going to get some starter fluid to spray into the intake today.
If anybody has some input on some things that i can check it would be helpful.
All fuses are good.

Update.  The starter fluid got it running for a few seconds.  Does that automatically mean it is the fuel pump?

I replaced the fuel pump and my car still will not start.  Does anybody know what I can try?
