Ford Taurus SEL 2003 won't start.

Hi all, I have a problem with Ford Taurus SEL 2003, it does not wan't to start. It was everything ok yesterday, but today in the morning it just did not want to start.
We thought that it is a battery problem, but the battery is brand new and we did try to boost the car with a car from my friend but id didn't help.
When I try to turn it on it looks like it will make it and like he is missing just a little but it never does. Also, I am living in Calgary so it is pretty cold outside.
My first opinion was that it is alternator, but now that we connected actually another car with his battery, I think it might be fuel pump.
Does any one have any ideas how to fix this or determine a problem.
Tnx.

Well, you're at ground zero with little info to go on. I'd check the obvious, are you getting fuel, spark, any codes? You mentioned fuel pump, have you checked pressure on the fuel rail? Which engine?

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

If the engine is turning over fast enough , the first thing I would look at would be the plugs , especially if not been looked at for a while and dependant on mileage they have covered .
