Check to make sure your getting fuel. If you spray starter fuid in there and it runs, it makes me think that its your fuel pump. Try changing your fuel filter first. If that doesnt help your probably going to need to replace your fuel pump.

But be careful with the starting fluid because if you use it too much the motor will become dependant upon it. Just a heads up.

Yes it would but I would still start with the fuel filter because 1 its cheaper and 2 it cant hurt. Your filter might be too clogged and it cant get the initial PUSH through. After it Starts, there is also a draw coming from the other side. I would buy both and do the filter first, if that fixes it, then return the fuel pump. If not, replace the pump. Hope this helps!

I am agree with Spike884, start with the cheapest first. Do not open the fuel pump box until you have tried the filter first. It will be easier to return if not needed.
