I can not get my car to start. I depressed the clutch all the way, and turned the key but all the car did was engage the fuel pump which I could hear running but it never attempted to trun the engine over or anything. Does anybody have a good sugestion as to what is the problem and how much it will cost?

I also recently replaced the battery. I thought that was the problem because one of the cells in the former battery had exploded and it had hardly any fluid in it. I put in an optima battery. It started only after jumping the car after putting in the optima battery. It started fine after that for a couple days now it is dead at another friends house. The engine is clicking when I turn the key but no ignition.
