1992 firebird. 305 engine after warm up starts missing under acceleration

could be a overheating issue the gague may register that it is at correct temperature but maybe just a few degrees warm causing what is called vapor lock where the gas is getting to warm and is evaporating before it gets into intake worked on same car a few years back and it turned out that they removed the botom of fan shroud causing this particular problem if your shroud is all there also check any lines tubes or hoses that lead into your air intake.also check your plug wires if rubbing on manifold when gets hot could cause a short in spark causing misfire.any check engine lights appear in the dash?

1999 v6 firebird misfires on #6 cyl when under load, plug was fuel fouled last time I had it replaced, but keeps missing only when under load. no other problems.

if you've changed the spark plug and no difference, then it's time to swap the coil with another cyl. coil and see if the miss goes to the other cylinder, if it does'nt follow to other cylinder, then I would replace that injector !

Can't get gas to go in tank, and it will spit out gas

Every gas tank has a vent tube, so when you fill the tank, air can escape, while the fuel is being pumped into the tank. Some vent tubes are metal, some rubber. Yours is either collapsed or plugged up. Look at the fill tube in the firebird and follow it from the gas cap to the tank, there should be a 2nd smaller tube that is your vent tube. Check to see if it's collapsed, pinched, or bent. This is definitely your problem. Check out this web site for pictures of different fill and vent tubes to get an idea of what to look for. Good luck let me know how you make out. Curt

Air pump relay missing in 96 firebird

That is one of you problems, but I will need the codes to help further.
The burning question is why is the relay missing. Apparently there was a previous problem with the system and it was removed to disable the component.
So, get a relay and reply back with the code numbers and we can get started.
