'01 2.0 will not start without starter fluid

My kid has a 01 SE with a 2.0 that has sat in the driveway for about a year untouched. It ran and drove when we parked it but shortly after that it would only crank and not fire. I assumed the fuel pump died from sitting {149K}.

Well I pulled it into the garage and as a test I pulled the intake tube off the MAF and hit it with some starter fluid. It fired up.....and never stopped. As soon as I put the intake tube back on the MAF it killed it. I pulled a code for the IAT and ran to the local yard and grabbed another MAF and swapped it on. Still no start with everything hooked up. If I pull tube off MAF and use the starter fluid it will fire right up and idle as long as I let it. But intake all hooked up it will not start or it will kill it if its already running.

THis make zero sense to me. When its running its smooth as silk and dead quiet.
