Question about 1990 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

Lack of Fuel

I recently bought a 1990 Camaro Z28 T-top. When I went to pick it up it ran fine idle little rough. After I signed the title the car killed out totally. We put gas in nothing. Well long story short, the fuel injectors have lack of pressure, fuel pump kicks on and we changed out the fuel filter. We ran out of ideas of what it could be. I even changed the injectors out. If any one can think of anything that could be the problem please let me know. Thanks Much.s

Just because the fuel pump is on does not mean it is delivering the proper pressure. Some systems need as much as 35 psi to function properly. I would look there. I am assuming that you have checked the pressure as you had mentioned that the "Injectors have a lack of pressure" in your statement. Some of the old chevys used to use a "Sock" type filter on the pick up tube in the fuel tank. A possibility? Could be partially clogged. Good Luck

Hi. I have a 99 camaro 3.8l and I'm having some

Sounds like a fuel problem,You did the coils,plug wires and sparkplugs, that should of taken care of the misfire,You may have a EGR that stay open and doesnt close properly and it doesnt set a code why the ECM compensate for the false air.Now this causes rough idle,and smooth cruise with no misfire until you get to stop or idle speed.The map sensor this can also fail when warm especially if the vacuum it is suppose to get is not met. And a failing MAP causes a lack of power. A TPS failing causes a stumble and lack of power but no misfire.cansmo_184.gif

1990 chevy corsica 3.1 liter v6 engine. started ran fine went shopping and on my way home it dies out of no where, start it back up give it gas dies again. it will run in idle but sounds rough and as soon...

Coils and wires are the most likely culprits as they never get replaced hardly ever. You cant really test a coil, you can check for resistance on the plug wires but that doesnt tell you if the insulation is bad on them.

1994 Chevrolet Camaro unstable idle

You could have a faulty Crankshaft sensor, when you went through the flood, the crankshaft sensor wire leads may have gotten damaged or the sensor it self and your going to need to replace it. The sensor sends signal to the ECM which will control your fuel and and timing to each cylinder. Start with that and the sensor is located on the passenger side on the harmonic balance and you can pick on up at Auto Zone, Part Source ad they will have the step by step instructions for you to replace the sensor. Here is a link for you to also retrieve any DTC codes your ECM has saved that may be causing your engine's issues.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Rough idle and lack of power

Since you have fuel injection for fuel delivery, something has to tell the system how long to have the fuel injectors open, and something has to tell the system when to activate each fuel injector ... unless you have throttle body injection. Do you know which type of fuel injection you have? I will need that answer above before telling you anything useful.

I have a 85 camaro z28 that i recently had to put the fuel pump on a toggle switch. i had it running, i went to put up the passenger side window and it died. it will start but not stay running. what could...

The relay to the window can be blown or what ever power source going to the fuel pump.If you hooked this up the wrong way to a lack of power or to much power to the pump you may have burned out the pump if not the switch is cheap and it broke.

Ran fine then next day all went to /

that sounds correct and its probably electric and in the tank. turn the key to the start position then listen for a small humming noise coming from gas tank if theres no sound then thats most likely the problem.
