Car ran great before parked in garage 3 years ago. 92 0lds cutlass ciera 3300 v-6. Told could be fuel pump. How to tell if fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel sending unit. Put new spark plugs, starts and runs while spraying starting fluid. When stop spraying starting fluid quits running. Seeking least expensive way to figure out whats actually the problem? Remember, ran and started great until parked for 3 years

If it runs on starting fluid, then either you are getting no gas from the fuel pump or you are trying to run the engine on 3 year old gas which won't work.

Was the old fuel left in the vehicle or did you drain it? Have you checked fuel pump pressure to the engine?

If you left the old fuel in there, chances are it will not start.
