2005 TJ will not start?

I am new to this forum and hate to start out with a question, but here is my problem.

A few days ago my Jeep would not start and it sounded like it was not getting fuel. I had it towed to the shop and they replaced the fuel pump and said it was fixed. The next day after getting it from the shop, it had the same problem. My jeep is now parked at a Home Depot for the night.

Any advise?

A little more info please. What is it doing when you turn the key? Is it trying to start or are you just hearing a click? Is it showing any CEL codes? Manual or Automatic?

It act like it wants to start, but just keeps turning. Just wont fire up. At one point it turned over and made a few chugs and died. The fuel pump was replaced and it drove for a half of a day and would not start again.

Would a clogged fuel filter do this?

Spark problems make up almost 90% of starting/running problems
