What is leaking has to be some where. I dont feel like my car is getting the gas mileage that should be getting either.

Do you know what that means? Car turns over getting fuel and spark but wont start.

Driving my car and it just stalled and would not restart. Thought it was the fuel pump so I replaced it. Still will not start just keeps turning over. Checked valves everything in working. I have not checked spark plugs yet though. Any suggestions to what the problem may be? Stumped!
