Question about 1984 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

Starts then shuts off 84 camaro z28

Sometimes it will start then shut off, other times it won't start at all. The fuel pump is fine, fuel is getting into the carb but not far enough for it to fire. Its like the fuel stops after it hits the fuel filter. I already installed a new filter, but i was wondering what that connection above the fuel line area is. Mine is blue and it sticks up and has two prongs; and that makes a ticking noise when i turn the engine over. I also recently installed a new ignition module and checked the ignition coil, which was fine.

Your Car May have a fuel Pressure regulation Valve, take it to a shop and see if there is an easy way to check it to see if you are loseing the pressure you need to push the fuel through the lines.

Z28 LT1. Why do fuel injectors shut off?

it could be a wiring problem in the circuit or the injectors have a resistance problem or maybe even the injector drivers in the computer have a problem or are bad.

2000 gmc jimmy starts in AM fine won't start after sitting in sun all day

Can you jumper the fuel pump and make it start and continue to run ?
Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when it won't start ?
Could be a relay or coil, ignition module, or other component.

Have a 95 Camaro Z28 LTI, after starting the vehicle it will run for about 2 min or so and then shut off. You have to wait about 15-20 min for it to start again. Tried spraying ether in the carburetor but...

First off, your Z28 does not have a carburetor. They haven't put carburetors on Camaros since 1984. Your Camaro is fuel injected and has a throttle body. You are having a fuel issue. You fuel pump is probably bad and or fuel filter is clogged. I am assuming you are not a mechanic so I would recommend taking this to your local repair shop to be fixed. They will have to drop the tank to get to the pump. You should also have your injuectors cleaned while you are at it.

2 fuel pumps on 84 z28????!!!?

My guess is if you changed to an older style sending unit, you could eliminate that electric pump & just use your mechanical one as they did before EFI.
