Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If you have to use starting fluid to start the vehicle and it runs good when this is done but it will not start on its own at all this usually indicates the fuel pump itself is weak needing replaced.I have seen the fuel pump fail/act up in the past before causing this issue here needing replaced.If you have not had the fuel pressure tested at all this needs done to see if the pump is the cause needing replaced for this fault here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
