Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Starting fluid allowing it to start/stall indicates lack of fuel. This means start by checking fuel pump and if it is running check via a fuel pressure tester for correct pressure, if you have that then check with noide light if injectors are firing. Depending on how old fuel is it could have clogged injectors, the fuel pump, the fuel pump could be bad.
Given the symptoms those are the most likely causes and thus that is the first things to start checking. Also if fuel pump is not running and no pressure then check fuel pump fuse is not blown.
Thank you!
