Question about 1989 Chevrolet Camaro
When the car is cold it seems fine. After a couple of miles the trouble starts. It idles roughly, upon normal acceleration the car starts shaking and sputtering. If I accelerate very slowly it will reach 55-60mph and then seem fine, unless I accelerate harder. If I accelerate hard the passing gear kicks in and accelerates much better. This car has a 305ci motor, any ideas?
It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.
