Right- what engine is in your car? I would think that since it is running on starting fluid, the problem is likely to be fuel. Have you done the generic fuel pump test? Key off, turn key on and listen. You should hear a fuel pump buzz for about 3 seconds. If you don't hear the fuel pump, then that's one sign of a bad pump or something else bad.

Let us know if you can do this simple test. BTW, this test can be done on any EFI car. So you might want to get in another car that is running and listen for it's pump.
