No fuel. Be careful, that starting fluid is dangerous stuff. At least you know it is a no fuel condition. I will tell you what to do and mention what usually went bad in order of expense ok. Fuse or wiring for fuel pump or injector. Clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump( change pump pick-up screen and fuel filter with new pump) bad engine controller computer, or even a fuel pressure regulator. First fuse, then scan for codes, then fuel pressure 1st near throttle body, if none then check it before the fuel filter between the fuel tank(pump location) and the fuel filter. Probably a bad fuel pump. Make sure you tow it in and have a shop that is equipped to transfer the fuel change it. I don't want you to have any safety problems.
