Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you replaced the fuel pump then I'm assuming that the engine cranks but doesn't start.

There are many things that can cause a no start condition. If the fuel pump isn't running then you may have a wiring or power distribution issue. If you do have fuel pressure then you're likely missing spark which can happen for a number of reasons, but if it is related to a burning smell then wiring would be likely.

Have you checked for fault codes?

Does the fuel pump run when the key is turned on?
