What is wrong if an 87 Nissan will not start unless starter fluid is sprayed into the carb while turning the key and then it dies?

Your Nissan obviously isn't getting any fuel to the carb. When you spray starting fluid to it it only allows it to run for a few seconds. First make sure your not out of gas in the tank. Next take the fuel line off the carb turn the engine over with the starter, if there is no fuel coming out of the fuel line then check and make sure your fuel filter isn't clogged. If filter is ok then your fuel pump probably needs replaced. Also make sure all of your fuel lines are ok and that there not blocked. More than likely your pump is bad.

If the vehicle is in gear, the starter will be attempting to move the entire vehicle, as well as get the engine turning over.

If a 2007 Chrysler Sebring 2.71 is not starting correctly without starter fluid being sprayed on the air filter the starter in the car may need to be replaced.

The VATS security system prevents the starter from turning and thus the engine from turning over. Also, the entire ignition system is not activated unless the proper VATS key is used.

the car will not fire unless it will turn over , so the question makes no since.

They do not need to be sprayed unless they are annoying you or if you want them gone otherwise leave em alone
