Default Car won't start, cranks but no start.

I drive a 1996 subaru legacy l with about 160k miles on it. I drove it to school perfectly fine one day and then after school it it just would not start. We tried replacing the starter and the battery on the spot. Still wont change. So we uhaul towed it back. I tried spray starting fluid into the air intake and the car started up for like 5 seconds then sputtered out. We towed it home and took the alternator to orielys, they tested it bad but said it still worked. I then replaced the fuel pump as well but still wont start up and stay on. It ONLY turns over when started fluid is applied. I tried switching relays but im not quite sure if it was done right. The engine is not getting fuel because i un did the fuel filter fuel lines and no gas came out during the crank. I also DO NOT hear a primming noise from the new and previous fuel pump. Any ideas?
