Exclamation Problems after parking

sorry this is kinda long but real problem

ok i have a 93 ford probe gt 5spd i recently had my transmission replaced ..when i picked it up it didnt wanna run somthing with my throttle cable ne way they fixed that ...well like three months down the road i ended up parking it for a couple months well it ran fine when i parked it i am not sure how much gas i had in it i think under a quarter tank it was pretty hot those couple months it was parked so i tried starting it it started but noticed it was gonna die like right away so i gave it some gas and it died soo i tried starting it ... it wouldnt even turn over then so i figured it was air locked put more gas in and tried starting it ....again didnt even fire ... soo i waited till the next day tried starting it it did the same thing fired then was gonna die so i pushed the gas a lil bit and it just killed ....does this every time i try to start it ...we sprayed some starting fluid in it made it run but everytime i touched the gas it would die .... and my fuel cutoff light is on when it dies ... but thats pretty normal now i live in a somewhat shady neighborhood ... could this be because someone put sugar in my gas tank??? i have no clue why its acting this way ne suggestions??
