WHAT TO DO IF MY CAR WON'T RUN BUT IT WILL TURN OVER

1994 Ford Thunderbird • 130,000 miles

My car ran a while ago but then the battery died so I bought a new one and now it seems like the car tries to start but won't catch and run. I was wondering what I should replace first, the fuel pump? If I replace the fuel pump do I need a fuel injector too? I am working on the 1994 ford thunderbird 3.8l v6

Hello - if it isnt' starting you need to check for spark or fuel. If you are getting spark, then check for fuel. Look at these. You could replace the fuel pump......but what if that isn't the problem? So check for spark and fuel pressure.
