My car has an automatic transmission.
If the fuel pump is running but no fuel is getting to the motor then you will need to have the fuel filter checked for blockage. If filter is blocked then replace it and take a fuel sample to see if fuel is contaminated. If you have excessive water in fuel then it would also not start. This is why a fuel sample should be taken after fuel filter is installed.
