Check the fuel pressure, and stop using starter fluid, brake clean works just as well but not so bad for the engine,

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

1995 Mazda mx6 v6 would not start. .When i turn the key and let it go then it pu,,pu, as if its trying to run

Try a squirt of starting fluid into the air intake before starting. If it then starts and runs for a few moments then can give you a good indication that fuel supply to the engine has been lost. After that is just a matter of determining if the tank is empty. Pump not working. Or injectors not supplying fuel to the combustion process. If still no start with the starting fluid then need to check and see if you have ignition spark to the plugs.

My 2007 f350 superduty with 6.0 diesel was running rough and blowing massive whit smoke, now wont start even with starting fluid, any thoughts?

unfortunately there is so many things that could me causing this. Check the coolant level. Make sure its not over full or low. If that is ok... it sounds like from what your describing that there might be something wrong in the fuel system. I would suspect a fuel injector. I would get some good diagnostics done to determine the root cause. Also PLEASE BE CAREFUL when using starting fluid or silicone to start the engine. This engine has glow plugs that can ignite the fluid without starting the engine. I have seen people get hurt. Good Luck

Have to spray starter fluid in the intake to get to start. once started runs fine, why?

This sounds like a weak fuelpump, and take a while to build up pressure, the starting fluid get the engine running until the pump builds up pressure, i would have the fuel pressure tested and i think you will find that its bad. good day.

Has spark but wont start even when i use starting fluid

I'm not sure of the vehicle type or model due to your question, but the fact you mentioned spark I can only assume its a gas powered engine. I would highly recommend you not use any type of STARTING FLUID to aid in starting. Starting fluid should only be used for diesels, and I mean large industrial size motors when cold only. Any type of starting fluid used on a gas engines or domestic sized trucks can severely damage the engine especially when it won't help at all with the issue it won't start. Need more info of vehicle to help.
