If the engine does not start even on cranking for more than 10 seconds and there is a clicking sound, open the hood and remove the rubber tube leading to the fuel air inlet. Add couple of drops of fuel directly and try to start again, if it fails, then for sure the fuel pump is spoilt and needs to be replaced.
