    The starter doesn't start the car, it just turns the engine to allow it to start. If your starter is turning the engine, then it is fine. Why did you spend money on something you probably didn't need. We need more information or data to help you with your no start problem. It will need to be diagnosed by a good technician to be able to tell you what's wrong.

    If they know what they are doing, it can be tested directly to make sure the pump is working or not. Need to check the power and ground at the pump. I can look up the wiring diagram real quick. It's powered by the PGM-FI Main relay and the underdash fuse box, fuse #2 15amp, the ground for the pump is at the middle of the fuel tank, the relay is engaged by fuse #9 7.5amp and the PCM for ground. Maybe that might help.
