I can put fuel in the carberator and it works, i have replaced the fuel filter and that didn't work. If i prime the car by turning the key then the engin tries to catch.

    99% of the time this is caused by a failed fuel pump module, the reason it aint 100% is, it may be out of gas!

    Hearing the pump run doesn't mean it is working propetly, need to know pump PSI.
