Re: Car only starts with starter fluid

You lost fuel. Does your fuel pump prime when you turn the key?

Once it starts, does it keep running?

Re: Car only starts with starter fluid

I wanted to say something but both of you took my questions lol

But we definitely need more info to do an online diagnostic for you lol, first 2 questions above, plus. If it does keep running, then any bogging? Stalling? Etc?

Re: Car only starts with starter fluid

I hear the fuel pump come on, i get fuel pressure, and its all working correctly.

The idle is at about 2000 when I get it started if that helps

When it starts it stays on and drives, just dont feel like I should be drive it anywhere at that state.
