Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
Car wont crank without starting fluid but when I put it in it. It will crank and stay running and if I turn it off and right back on like seconds later it will crank but if I let it sit there I have to use starting fluid again. I can drive it until I shut it off with the fluid in it.

The first thing you need to check is fuel pressure. This type of fuel system requires a minimum fuel pressure of 56 psi to start. Anything less, even as little as 1psi. And it will not start. It starts and runs when you add the starting fluid because the poppets (the mechanical injectors located at each cylinders intake runner) require less fuel pressure to operate when the intake is under vacuum.
This is a classic symptom of low fuel pressure. A new fuel pump is the typical fix for this problem. Don't skimp on quality if you do need a new fuel pump. They are not all the same.
