Only Starts With Starter Fluid... HELP!
First things first, the batteries, alternator and starter are new, charge perfectly, hold charge, and sound perfect. The weather here doesn't get below 40. When this no start issue began, I replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump, since the pump was the original and I have a 132K miles, I figured it was about time. It started fine for a few days afterward and I figured I was done. At this point, I can still hear the fuel pump engaging and pumping perfectly when I turn the key, but now it won't start again unless I spray ether into the intake.
I am beginning to think there must either be a sensor or vacuum issue. My electric vacuum pump seems to run for a while even after recent shut down each time I turn the key. I it does eventually though stop running, so I believe the vacuum system is charging even if my pump may be weak.
Are there any sensors or anything else I should be focusing on that would prevent the rig from starting?
