Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order for the engine to start and run you need good spark to the spark plugs, proper fuel pressure and injector pulse and compression , if you are sure you now have good fuel pressure with the new pump then check and see if you are getting spark as well as injector pulse and good compression. Post back with which one you are lacking and we can work from there to determine the cause.

ran code reader and the cam shaft td sensor code came up, this code fits the problem description except why the fuel ump quit at the same time, need to replace sensor next to decide if its the sensor or the cam shaft

Start first with making sure the timing belt is okay before you replace the sensor and post back with the results and we can work from there if need be.
