Have you checked if the other injectors are working? Try this. Pull the fuel pump relay. Try to start it. After crank for a few seconds, retry it with starting fluid. Does it start and run for a few seconds?

Let me know.

If you have spark and starting fluid, it should run. There are three things that can stop it, low compression, timinh, or weak spark. Are you getting a good hot blue snapping spark? Have you checked that? The fuel doesn't seem to be the problem. That is why I had you remove power from the fuel pump and see if it would run on starting fluid. If it still doesn't, one of the three things I mentioned has to be bad.

Let me know if you checked them.

Check electric pulse to your injectors.

Yes, you need to have an injector pulse. You will need a noid light to check them. However, I need to know if it will start with starting fluid. If it does, then move to the injectors. If it doesn't start, there is an ignition problem.

Let me know
