Hey how are you

So when you sprayed starting fluid it started and died, so lets check it the fuel pump not running or fuel injectors not opening ?

did you check the fuel pump relay in the under hood fuse box, swap with another one like it , will it start then

check all fuse in that fuse box ?

when you turn the switch from off to on the pump should come on for few seconds to prime fuel rail ,do you hear it buzz ?

Please let me know

Thank You
