when i turn the key it sounds like there is no gas going to fuel pump to start it, could it be a sensor or do i need a new fuel pump? if i need a fuel pump how much are they and how much to install? my car has been broken down since October 2012. i went to start it 3 days later and it wouldn't start.

    manual test for fuel pump is turn key and stop before it cranks. should be able to hear pump priming the line. short whirring sound. should last just a second and then stop. if no sound than probable pump failure.
    to replace pump your lookin at $200.00 for parts $200.00 labour. these are just aprox. every shop different.
