We have a 1999 suburan 198,000 miles. It won't start in the mornings unless starter fluid is used and even then it is hard. The fuel pump is running and we replaced the fuel filter two days ago. The fuel pump was replaced five years ago.

if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.
This could mean that your transmission is wearing out, you may have 1 or more solenoids that are wearing out, or you may just need a new transmission filter and some fresh transmission fluid. I would start with the fluid and filter and see if the situation doesn't improve.
You'll need to do maintenance check on a regular basis. Basics for that is that on city driving, you change oil every 3 months or 3,000 kilometers. Regularly check the radiator fluid to avoid overheating and lastly... you have the wheels balanced and aligned (camber alignment) whenever you feel a wiggle or when the car starts favoring the right over the left.. almost forgot, brake fluid every year to rid of the moisture that could have accumulated from the lines.
hope this helps
BLOWBAG -- B-batteries, L-lights, O-oil, W
-water, B-brakes, A-air, and G-gas
ok make sure you have good fuel pressure
you must have good spark must fire a spark tester
if all that is good then check compression
and don't use STARTER FLUID on a GAS ENGINE it can blow a hole through the piston
hope this helps
My friend had the same type of symptoms, there is a spider wed style od hoses under the intake that delivers fuel to all the cylinders that he found to have hairline cracks in it. Found out this is a know problem especially in the 4.3L Vortex
