Q: Won't start changed pump

asked by on

My car won’t start and I’m not sure why. I have a spark, so I am getting fuel. I had just changed my oil pump, and I primed it when I installed it. I’m wondering if maybe I might have disconnected something while I was changing the pump. Maybe some wires were affected. I know I didn’t disconnect the battery. Do you have any suggestions? What do you think?
