Part number VDO-228233016012Z is a new, unused VDO electric fuel pump. Often a faulty fuel pump means the car will crank, but not start. If you turn your ignition to the second position (before cranking), often you can hear the fuel pump running, thus if you cannot hear it, it is possible you need a new fuel pump or fuel pump relay.
