my car will not start after blowing a fuse. What could this be?

engine not starting. replaced fuel pump and filter. fuel pressure is on again and off again. Is there an electric fuel pressure regulator; if not, then why is there a clicking? The fuel pump kicks on and then sounds like a secondary pump by fuel rail. Any ideas what to do?

We bought a 2004 Dodge Stratus SE for my teenager daughter, the battery was dead, so we replaced, as a prevention we change the timming belt, since then the car idles awful and quit running whenever we stop the car, like a stop light or so, we turned back the mechanic, he rechecked the timming belt and his computer said it was the MAP sensor, we changed, checked compresion, wires, spare plugs, everything, it keeps idling, WHAT IT IS WRONG??? Nobody has an idea...all my hometown mechanichs just keep guessing about it, we already spend a lot of money on it!!! HELP PLEASE!!!!!

2004 dodge stratus 2.4L DOHC- after getting the car inspected- it passed legitamately- car ran for about 30 min then started acting like it wanted to die- had to double foot the petals to get it parked- engine light was blinking- had 1 mechanic change the ignition coil he got 2 error codes- (1) was p0250 and the other i believe was p0340- did not change anything- car still is not starting- 2nd mechanic changed cam sensor because cylinders 2 and 3 not firing- nothing changed- now debating on changing crank sensor however after looking on all the forums about this problem it seems this is also not going to work and have not been able to find what comes next- any ideas?

When a steering wheel is turned to the end of its travel, the power steering pump makes an objectionable hiss.

But my Stratus makes this noise when I turn the wheel at center when fluid is cold. Steering assist stops then comes back. Tire Pressure OK. Fluid is Full. NO LEAKS. When fluid warms there is still some hiss but it is much better.
