1999 chevy camaro starting problem? help

check that fuel is getting to engine, next, are you getting spark, are your plug wires in the right order, are they all good, you must keep plug wires from touching each other, is the cap & rotor ok, coil ok, fuses ok, do you have a fuel pump relay, if so, check fuse in relay. is the fuel filter new, did any codes get stored ECM, put drygas in fuel tank. are spark plug wires fully engaged onto plugs, don't concern your self with any smoke, let's get the engine started first, CHECK EVERYTHING MENTIONED ABOVE, including fuel filter, air filter should be new also, todays fuel w/ ethanol is garbage, for older cars. is the mass air flow sensor for this car ? aftermarkets are garbage. let me know how things work out, my knowledge is not cheap, but I will help you to avoid egg on your face, KEN

The car will start but i have to push the gas too keepit running and it sounds so bad and smokes and runs really rich its a 1997 chevy camaro z28 with the lt1 thanks any help

This could be a few issues. Check the throttle body for any built-up gunk that would be clogging air flow. Also check all your battery terminals for any corrosion. It's possible your battery or alternator is going out.

My 1984 camaro z28 keeps flooding. when i turn off the ignition key, the fuel keeps pouring fuel into the carb.

possibly a malfunction in the computer that controls the 1984 camaros carb would close the carburetor completely, cutting off the fuel supply or leaving the carburetor completely open, flooding the engine and causing it to stall or flodding the engine at shut off

97 Saturn sl2. Won't start after it gets warm. If you drive it for 15-20 minutes and try to restart it will not engage the starter. Wait a couple hours and it will start fine

It is your engine coolant temp sensor (ECTS). 99.9%. the saturn made them with a plastic tip, so they crack over time. A replacement should be about 15 bucks and not too hard to replace. You'll notice your engine temp gauge not working (always cold).

I don't know much about cars, but here's what happens. When your car is cold, the fuel runs rich. Your broken sensor is always reading that the engine is cold, but when it is warm, it runs too rich and floods your engine, not allowing it to start. When your engine is actually cold, everything is fine.

Fuel pressure? Do you hear the fuel pump running? Read the codes to see if ECM is still alive. Do you have spark at the plugs? Remember all motors need 3 things to run air, fuel, and fire at the right time.

Fuel smell in camaro

50 miles reduction in the conditions mentioned means that your economy is about right
there is a small hose back from the tank to under the cap to release air trapped when filling
koses can get loose , crack or break
tank sender units gaskets can break down
look around the tank area for the leak /smell
a damp patch in the dust is a good give away

1997 Camaro, Z28 Car is running rich, flooding out and fouling

any codes come up? try to take it to any auto parts store napa autozone or advance auto they will hook up a obd 2 code reader for free and that should help you narrow it down. If i had to guess it would be one of the o2 sensors?
