Question about 1987 Chevrolet Camaro
My 1987 IROC-Z, which has been stored for about a year, doesn't want to start. It was stored with a full tank of gas with fuel stabilizer and fogging oil in the intake, etc.
I have good spark but no fuel. It will run momentarily if I spray starting fluid or gasoline into the throttle body. My friends think the injectors are clogged or stuck.
But, before I get into that, I thought I'd better make sure the fuel pump is working properly.
Anyone know of an easy way to test the pump?
Easiest way to check is to simply hop in your car leave the driver door open and turn the key to the first notch ... dont crank over teh engine! you should be able to hear teh sound of the pump as it pressurises your fuel system if you dont hear that then before you go to replace the pump check the wires leading to it. i made this mistake with mine the pump wasnt working so i tore apart the entire rear suspension dropped the exhaust and took out teh tank only to realize that after i put it all back together it still didnt work. right in front of teh tank the wires leading to teh pump go right over the exhaust on mine the wires had got just a little loose touched the exhaust and it burned thru them. a lil soder and heat shrink later and problem solved coulda saved myself $100 for the pump not to mention the week that i spent doin it all in my garage lol
