My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Even though you tried starting fluid or similar and the engine did not start the fluid sprayed may not have been enough to fire off the engine.I have seen weak fuel pumps or failed fuel pumps cause this before and had to replace it for this issue.I would have the fuel pressure tested to see what pressure is present and if low on pressure or no pressure the power and ground need tested to the pump.If power and ground are good then the pump needs replaced.
Thanks Pete
