Start by replacing the FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR, located on the fuel rail atop the engine (fairly simple and inexpensive procedure). If the problem persists, use a fuel pressure gauge to verify that your fuel pump is producing enough pressure and, if not, replace the fuel pump AND the fuel pick-up screen in the gas tank.

Sounds like your fuel pump starting to die. It is not getting enough gas under heavy acceleration which is 100% fuel pump slowly dying. At start up it might not be building up enough fuel pressure to feed the system but the shot of ether and engine cranking helps pressure the system just enough for the fuel pump to trickle the gas and run the engine at low rpms.

Engine cuts out like it cant get gas when accelerating, sometimes when at driving speed the car cant get gas , then after a min it runs fine , also trouble starting like it cant get gas...i dont smell...

Depending on year. I would check cheap things first. First check lines for leaks. Replace Fuel Filter with new one. If fuel injected? have fuel injectors checked. If Carberator? Check for Vacuum leaks around the throttle body, Check Intake, and carb itself for leaks. Now i would go ahead and check the Fuel pump. If Injectors? Have the fuel pressure checked. If Carb? Try a new Pump.
You didn't specify what year and model or what engine. So It's kinda hrd to figure it out. but i gave you the basics for all engines.

When i step on the accelerator hard the engine almost dying

This can be a number of things, so I'll give you a check list:

Check spark plugs, wires. coil, cap, and rotor. if they arent giving enough spark when you accelerate the car will want to die cause your flooding it out .

Check your fuel filter, if the engine cant get enough gas to support accelleration it will want to die

check your exhaust. If you converter or other exhaust component is getting clogged the engine wil have to much back pressure and dog under acceleration.

Check your air filter, if it is dirty it can starve the engine for air and your car will want to die,

and finally (hopefully not your problem) you could have a faulty fuel pump. If your fuel pump goes bad your system wont have enough pressure in the gas lines to your fuel regulator and cause the same problem.

Rule out the other stuff first, cause a new fuel pump gets pricy. If you purchase everything elts I mentioned before buying a new fuel pump you would still be under 25% of the cost for a new pump

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Died while driving home

check the fuel pump fuse/relay, could be just bad enough to cause an intermittent start/no start. and check fuel pressure,spark and the crank position sensor.

Car dies when accelerate. do i need new fuel pump?

It sounds from your description that the fuel pump is weak. To check the fuel pressure you need a fuel pressure test gauge for fuel injection. Attach the gauge to the test port schrader valve and turn the ignition to the on position. Record the reading. Now start the engine and record that reading. Unplug the pressure regulator vacuum line and record the reading.
The pump should have pressure with in specs but if low, start with the installation of a new complete pump. It is located in the fuel tank. Also replace your fuel filter.
Hope this helps you.
