Chevy 2005 Malibu classic starting issues

Asked by Jan 30, 2018 at 11:31 AM about the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok ive got a 2005 Malibu classic.  Ive changed the coil packs,    
new plugs, new fuel filter and a brand new battery.  Ive
checked all fuses and relays.  Their all good.  The fuel pump
is pumping.  Were getting fuel all the way to the fuel rail.  We
pushed the bleed off valve and gas shot out bout five feet lol.
But we spray ether into the intake and the engine will run till it
burns out.  So i know that its getting fire but the fuel is not
making it from the rail and injectors to the cylinders. Oh and
the theft system light was flashing this last round when we
tried to start it and failed.  Hope this is detailed enough to be
able to help me.  Can anyone tell me why im having trouble
getting my poor little car to start?  Lol!
