Hi:
If you are getting spark and fuel to the engine, one has to be weak or it would start. Are you getting a good hot blue snapping spark to the plugs? Have you checked fuel pump pressure? Something had to have been bumped when you replaced the battery. Please recheck around the battery for wiring that may have been bumped. Also, please recheck the spark and fuel. If it has both, it has to run if it ran before.

They said that the hood light wire fell down and got caught between the hood and fender of car when they shut the hood it sparked a few times and I can see where it burned the covering off the wire, they didnt notice it had gotten there till they shut the hood then it was to late, but that is the only thing we can find so far, but it will sit there and turn over all day just wont fire nor run, and before that it run great.
