Question: what do i need to check or do next

The problem started with the pickup dying on me going down the road, but it would restart. Then while driving if I tried to speed up,it would start cutting out. So I changed the fuel filter but that didn't help.Then it wouldn't start without starting fluid. I changed the spark plugs but that didn't help either. Then I couldn't get it to start at all, so I changed the fuel pump but it still won't start. If I spray starting fluid in it it will try to crank, but it doesn't act like it's getting any fuel. What do I need to check now?
