Re: [DML] Fuel Problems! (Fuel Distributor and not getting fuel to the back)

I have to agree with Tom.  About a month ago I brought back to life a 
Town Car I had lying around for two years.  It wouldn't start, but when 
I pulled a spark plug it had spark.  I sprayed ether (starter fluid) and 
it started right up for about 10 seconds per spray.  After I replaced 
the fuel pump it started by itself on fuel.  So I agree with Tom, it's 
still ignition related.
