I suspect that your spark plug wires or your distributor is going out. Check your spark wires and distributor. To do that take out #1 spark plug wire from the spark plug. Next take out your spark plug then put it in the spark plug wire. Then turn on car and take a look at the spark plug to see if it's getting a spark. Do this with all the spark plug. If it is your spark plug wire I would replace all of them.

OK, I see the relay you're talking about. It takes orders from the ECM. Same orders go to the starter. So the starter cranks, right? And both fuse 2 and 28 are good? Can you check for voltage at the fuel pump connector using a test light? Maybe the problem is with the wire that goes from the relay to the pump. That is the only thing I can see that would prevent the pump from working. Or, it could be the ground wire from the motor to ground. See diagram below.

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi
