2000 mustang gt wont turn on!!!

I have a 2000 mustang gt and It's been sitting in my garage for more then 9 mnths. It started up fine all that time till a month ago I started noticing a hissing noise coming from the fuel cap. From there on I had trouble turning it on until one day it didn't start up. The only way It started up was with starting fluid. I changed the fuel cap and fuel filter and now it won't start and when It does you hear the gas tank sucking in air and it making thump like sounds. I checked the spark plugs and they look like charcoal. Idk if thats the problem I'm going to replace them today.i need help guys please!!

are you turning the key to the on position and waiting for the pump to prime? it could be a failing fuel pump, especially if starting fluid is starting the engine.

i would do a fuel pressure test first. listen for a noise when you turn the key to the on position before starting the engine. try turning the key to the on position a few times, then start it. see if it runs okay or if it eventually just dies.

also, how old is the fuel? any fuel additives mixed in there?

I tried turning the key and no start. I put 2 gal of gas this morning. I put a thing of fuel injector cleaner like 2 weeks ago
