2000 Mazda B2500 wont start, but using starter fluid gets it going and runs fine until I shut it off. Each start up I need the starter fluid

    your losing fuel rail pressure somehow.Change the filter to start with and go from there. you should check fuel injectors/fuel lines/fuel pump.I would stop using starting fluid on this motor!!! If you must use anything use carb/intake cleaner.

    I changed fuel filter and pump seems to be working fine, but while checking for fuel problems i realized that I am not getting spark. I'm beginning to think that maybe its in the switch, at the clutch pedal. Coils have plenty of spark once its running and I have checked all fuses. Where else should I look
