yeah you dont want to use ether vaery much if you can help it, alot of times once is all it takes and your vehicle will depend on it all the time, carb cleaner will do the same thing with out harming the motor as much its more of a pain, but you could also just dump gas down the carb

Is it getting fuel ? Check fuel pump or line is plugged .Try throttle body cleaner it works better than ether you could damage the computer componets but also be careful where you spray the throttle body cleaner it could do damage also . Keep it away from any of the sensors .
