2008 Rio 5 won't start

So I am by no means a car guy. Change the oil? Got that. New break pads? Check! But anything else, and it's off to YouTube or buddies.

My 2008 Rio5 MT gave out. I didn't hear the fuel pump engaging so I replaced it. Now it won't start at all. I know there's probably not a fuel reset button. I changed the spark plugs and bled the fuel line. I am now officially out of ideas. :banghead:

It turns over and over and over. I let it sit because I thought I flooded it, and still nothing. The intake is sucking air so that's good. Air. Spark. Fuel. All good, so I'm stumped.

This is supposed to be my "reliable" car (less than 85K miles) so I need to get it fixed and would rather not pay my firstborn.

Any ideas from some grease monkeys out there?

I'm currently having this same problem. We're you able to figure it out?
