1999 Firebird runs rough and bucks


Sounds like an O2 sensor at this point (which Firebirds are notorious for) however since you really didnt give us alot more detail than hard to stay running, it could really be several things. I really would eliminate all the multiple guessing and take it to a shop and have a dignostic run on it, it's worth the money to have them tell you in 15 minutes what is wrong verus shelling out money for parts that may not need replacing.

1999 hard starting expedition, with 5.4 engine


fuel pump may be going. try this. turn key on, listen for fuel pump to run for 5 seconds. Turn key off, wait 15 seconds or until you hear relay click inside car. Turn key on again for 5 seconds and ff for 15 seconds. repeat once more. This will pressurize fuel system to 40 psi so injectors have full pressure. If it starts quickly now, you are getting bleed down through the check valve in the fuel pump or the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail.
