See if the car starts with starting fluid. Also, if it does start for a couple seconds, you need to rent a fuel pressure gauge at a parts store and check it.
As far as the speedo, it sounds like you have a bad vehicle speed sensor (VSS). However, it is odd that is acts up when you hear a change in the fuel pump. Have you checked for any ground issues?
