Default 2000 accord turns over but wont start

OK, this is my first post so here it goes. I have a good friend who has little money, that also owns a 2000 accord coupe ex 2.3 4 cyl. A few weeks ago it started stalling on her. Then stopped altogether. Now I have replaced the fuel pump and can hear the pump priming when I start it. However, no go. I have not checked to see if it is getting spark yet, gonna try that tomorrow. I know when it would stall in the beginning, it would start right back up and has never sputtered or spit. Will just work then stop, then randomly work again. I am at my wits end with this car and she can not afford to take it to a shop to have it looked at. the 160 for the fuel pump almost killed her. Can anyone help with this? I would appreciate any advice at this point. thanks, aric

also thought i would add that there was no rhym or reason to the starting. Now it wont start at all. It will turn over and crank, just wont start. sounds like its not getting fuel because it doesnt even try to start, but when it would start before it did not sputter like it was getting too much fuel. car has 150k on it and know it could get a lot more if we could just figure out what this problem was. thanks again, aric

Ok, found out this am that it does not seem to be sparking from the plug wire to the distributor cap, where the wire goes. Seems like it might be a spark problem. Any place I should start, or go from here as most likely suspect?
