You have to drop the fuel tank, itís a bitch to do. Why donít you check to see if your getting fuel before you try replacing it? All you have to do is crank the engine some then pull a plug and smell. If you smell gas its not the fuel pump

either that or use a 12mm wrench and release the pressure from the pressure release nut on top of the fuel filter.. be sure to use a rag - also, once you have a dry tank for a while or if your engine has been sitting.. you need to prime the fuel lines with fuel.. meaning you just need to turn the key to the on part (not start) you'll hear the fuel pump come on for a sec to build up pressure. then turn the key off and repeat. once you do that a few times, your motor should start right up.
also you gotta drop the tank..I think you can get to it if you remove the rear interior panels.. so whatever is easier.

Is it atleast turning over?
CHeck Dirty fuel filter, bad injectors, car not properly grounded, just some thoughts.
If you don't race then what do you do?
I say check everything at this point, from fuel delivery, spark, firing order, plugs, timing, to what ever you can think of. Pick up a helms manual, and give it a go. Just narrow down all the possibilities.

man ur being real dumb bout this and throwin soo much $$ away!! dont just go throwing things at the car hoping that it will fix the prob. try to pin point the prob as best as possabe. for all you know right now it could be a fuse!!! or a melted wire!! does it crank?? if it cranks and just doesnt start.. check the plugs, are they nasty? clean em or replace em, then check for spark, be sure your plug wires are not crossing eachother, it will cause a cyl. to fire when its not spose to, if spark is good, does it have fuel, like they said check the bleader on top of the fuel filter.... id replace the filter ne way cuz those are always neglected, check your battery!! does it have 12+ volts?? are there any blown fuses in the main fuse box, or inside??? ur throwing money away man by throwin parts at it, dont do that. good luck
