Car kept dying and eventually wouldn't even turn over. I replaced the fuel pump and the battery. After charging it, the car worked great. About two months later the car again won't turn over. How do I fix this?

Depends on what the symptoms are but I'd start with a load-test on the charging system. If one of the six diodes in the generator is defective, it will produce exactly one third of its rated output current, and that's not enough to run the entire electrical system. The battery will have to make up the shortfall. That will run it down over time.
