Question about 1991 Pontiac Sunbird

Car stalls out while running

When i drive the 1991 pontiac sunbird it runs fine and when i let off the gas petal it stalls. I think it is getting too much fuel. Is there a adjustment screw for fuel/air mixture?

    My Sunbird starts to sputter and shake then die. How do I unclog the fuel filter?

    Same thing going on here, requires a high idle to run at all, constant heavy smoke, and dies out when the gas isn't floored.

It sounds like it's not getting enough fuel to the engine if it stalls when you let up off the gas pedal but stays running with your foot on the gas it sounds like you need a new fuel pump and or fuel filter for the car.I can almost garantee thats part of the problem

Runs fine then it just stalls. Wait awhile and it runs fine then stalls again


Sounds like a crank sensor. That would be my starting point

You need to replace the fuel filter every 30000 miles.The gas stations tanks are full of dirt. Also check the flow of the catalitic converter.Put your hand at the tail pipe while someone is pushing the gas petal down. The farther they push the petal the more exhaust should be coming out.
I hope this helps you
