ISO definitive eng compartment pic/diag/schematic of fuel line & line-pressure valve/access, bleed disconnects + alt intake spots 4 starting fluid, beyond air filter intake.

to remove contaminated fuel , pull a fuel line of the fuel manifold and run the pump for a few seconds
not firing is sensor , immobilizer , ignition module problem but you stat that it fires on starter fluid so that cannot be right
starter fluid is a d good way of damaging the engine
a better way is to find and fix the fault
now to try and sort out what you are saying
it is cranking so the starter is good
it tries to run on starter fluid so there is spark to the plugs
it will not run and that indicates a lack of fuel to the injectors
a lack of fuel indicates
1--- a bad fuel pump
2--a vacuum in ht e fuel system from the tank not venting properly(EVAP system)
3--- fuel pressure regulator not working and providing pressure to the injectors
4--- bad injectors --- need cleaning
dump the starter fluid , buy a workshop manual and fix the problem properly

Still I have not been able do find out the problem, My engine does not start, I have fuel in the line and spark, anybody can light me out what it could be wrong?

CAUTION - Be careful when using volatile fluids like starter fluid in the open as they are flammable and may start a fire; having a fire exstinguisher present is a good idea.
Pull back a small part of the boot just in front of the throttle body, open the throttle all the way up and spray about 3 seconds of starter fluid inside the manifold. Push the boot back in place and attempt to start it. If it starts or attempts to start but shuts back off, it has fuel supply issues which could be the injectors, wiring, the ecm, the fuel pump or other related electronics.

Quest 98 changed fuel pump and filter, will crank but will not start. Got some engine start and still no start, fuel is pumping. please help.

did it even try to fire off when you used the starter fluid?? with the little details that you have given at this point, the only other thing I could tell you is try starting with accelerator all the way to the floor until it starts not pump, just keep it on the flor until it starts and then let up

When I last turned the engine off last night, there was no indication of any problem. This morning I couldn't start the car. It acts like it's either not getting fuel or it's just not firing. The starter...

i had the same issue with my 96 chevy 1500. i sprayed just a little bit of starting fluid into the throttle body to see if it would fire on that. when it did i knew i had spark. turned out to be the fuel pump. try it and see what happens. all you need is just a quick spray. also i noticed that when i turned my key to the on position, i didn't hear the pump kick on to pressurize to lines.

My 1995 subaru will not start.  i have tried spraying starting fluid in the injectors the car ran for 2 seconds and died.

If the engine fired on ether it means that you have a fuel supply problem, check the fuel pump.

if starter fluid made it chug, I would suspect fuel pump fuse, relay or pump, also fuel filter.
