Question about 1990 Pontiac Firebird
Ok i just got this car last sunday. it ran fine,
bad thing was its been sittin for a year, exp. tabs and is due for emissions test. so ive been running it five minutes a day as it spits carbon out lol,
one time while reving it i guess it clogged and it wud not idle and died. it then would not restart for 10 minutes, once it did it would not idle. later on in the night it was rough but eventually idled very smoothly.
i can not drive until this monday when i get my license.
today it was scheduled for a tune up so my mother was going to drive it.
withtin 30 seconds fo starting it she reved it.... now i wish i broke the law and drove it there.... it now will not start. jumpstart does nothing. when u turn the ignition, it makes the sound that it normally makes when it starts (only difference is, now thats the only sound it makes, instead of makin it for .5 seconds and starting, it just makes the noise non stop) it did this this morning, over 14 hours ago, still will not start.
co workers said u can find a repair manual online, i cant find any for free, this is my first car so i dont kno too much lol. im not completely stupid im not a blonde woman ( not seriously i know blondes kno cars too) im jus an 18 year old dude whos never worked on a car. PLEASE HELP!!! i cant get this thing to the tune up unless it starts!
o and fyi its a great car and ran perfect when i got it, it just needs cleaning after the first few minutes of running the exhaust is fine theres just build up inside somewhere its not like the car from transformers lol
Check out eautorepair website. You can purchase access to repair info for a car for 1 week $11.99, up to one year $29.99. It's a car repair manual on your computer, don't have to wait to have it delivered. It can be a bit technical, but would be a big help to you. You'll save way more than that fixing some stuff yourself, so it's worth the investment, and u can print out info u need to bring outside to the car. To make sure I understand what's going on, when u turn the key, the engine turns over, and it won't start now. Just turns over? Keep me posted as to how u do this weekend, I can help out more when u have more info on what u find then.
