SOURCE: 1995 firebird 3.4 fuel pump is inoperative

You can but if you ever lose your prim when parked over night or a few day's you may have a starting problem. The other thing too is that your going to have to run new wire's and keep in mind where you live might give you second thought's if there is snow in your area if your going to run it in the winter. That poor fuel pump is going to be exposted. You should be able to do the fuel pump in under 3 hours buy dropping the tank. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 1988 firebird formula 5.0 tpi car just died

It sounds like you may have burned out your fusable link. It's a special wire that comes off the starter solennoid and is designed to burn off in the event of an overload. DO NOT REPLACE IT WITH REGULAR WIRE, THIS IS A LEADING CAUSE OF CAR FIRES.
You will want to check for what caused the overload condition that caused the fusable link to burn out in the first place.

88 Trans-Am GTA 350 5.7 TPI fuel injected...Car will start and run 10 mins and then just die. Wont start for 2 hours and then when it does start it only runs 10 mins then dies again. Dont know what to do...


Your fuel filter may need to be replaced and the other area that needs to ab addressed would be a ICM (ignition control module) going bad. Common for ether issues to cause you the same problems.
You can have your ICM tested at Auto Zone free of charge and you can also pick up the fuel filter from there.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

88 Firebird Power Failure


Buy a ECU from a local salvage and swap them out. It might just work. If not then you might have a short somewhere in the system causing it to shut down.

1988 iroc-z 350 tpi - runs poorly when hot (190-200degrees)


Does it run poor at full throttle or between quarter and half throttle? Does it hessitate? If it does the EGR valve may be worn out. I had an 87 transam with TPI and was having problems with it stumbling and hesitating when it was warmed up. If the car starts hard and you have these problems then the issue may be low fuel pressure. Hook a guage up to the fuel rail and make sure you are getting pressure. If you are only getting a few pounds of pressure it may be the fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. Good luck and if you thought this information was helpful please rate it when you get a chance.

Thanks - Tech101
