My first Question would be what kind of car is it. The next thing that needs to be checked is fuel pressure. The fuel pump can run but if it is not creating pressure it wont start. I would also check for spark and make sure the car is in time. All car need spark, fuel and to be in time to run. The best thing to do is have someone check these things out for you. Don
Ita a 2000 lincoln LS v8, it sat for two an i went out to try to start it again an it started up but died out again, the AAA guy who came to check it out told me the fuel pump wasnt running an it could be that.

yes a fuel pump not running will definetly cause a no start. but many fuel pumps are quiet enough that you will never hear them run. we have had a lot of cars towed in and the driver says its a bad fuel pump and that not be the problem. I would suggest having someone look at it to be sure. fuel pumps are rather expensive to be guessing. If you need anymore help let me know. Don
Your right don, i will take your advise an seek another opinion sir. thank you very much.
