spraying starter fluid in throttle body

Guys,

Does anyone have pictures of doing this the right way? I have never done this, and feel silly that I need pictures of it, but can someone help? Thanks.

take the tube off the throttle body... have a friend or someone try to crank the engine and pump the gas pedal constantly... spray the starting fluid in the throttle body

Shouldn't need that if your fuel injected but pretty much what he said. Just spray it down there and pump the gas.

Yep, pump the gas pedal so the throttle body opens and sucks the ether down.

This is a good way to see if you have spark or a fuel delivery problem

thanx for all your wonderfull help!!! NOT i figured it out myself. it was the fuel pressure regulator malfunctioning and making the fuel pump try to keep pressure in the fuel rails so it was burning out fuel pumps as well.. i replaced both and it fixed it perfectly. once again many thanx to all of you who helped on this problem

No need to pump the gas on a EFI motor.
