Question about 1989 Pontiac Firebird

1 Answer

Wont start with the key

Will run if i jump the starter with the positive and pour gas down the throttle body. the key will not turn it over, i have checked the ignition switch its good, the tumbler and ignition module both good. security light is on. clutch ignition switch is good and the injectors wont spray when motor is running. Is all this because of the security light being on, if so what can i do to fix or bypass.

Yes the security system is doing its job it has shut off the fuel and ignition. Try disconnecting the battery for an hour or so to get it to reset. Good luck. Dont forget to rate.

My 1988 old cutlass ciera turns over but won't start I have fuel pressure and spark will run roughly for a sec if u pour gas in throttle body any ideas I'm stumped


Check fuel injector fuses. With the key one you should have power to the injector plug. You could have (gas) fouled out spark plugs. Or timing jumped.

Why wont my 1998 gmc sierra 3500 start


Check for fuel by pouring small amount of clean gas down throttle body and crank engine over. if it starts and runs just for a few seconds you have a fuel delivery problem

Why wont my 1998 gmc 3500 sierra turn over


Check for fuel by pouring small amount of clean gas down throttle body and crank engine over. if it starts and runs just for a few seconds you have a fuel delivery problem. If it still does not run after several attempts check for spark at spark plugs. that should get diagnosis started

My 1998 S-10 is not getting gas to the throttle body. I can pour gas down the throttle body and it will turn start and I am able to drive for miles. Once I turn it off, I have to repeat the process of pour...


when you first turn the key on you should hear the fuel pump run for about 10 seconds . this primes the fuel system .If you do not hear the pump run then you need to check the circuits for the pump
the fuel pump has a fuse and a relay that is use to power up the pump . you should check the fuse and if they are ok then switch the fuel pump relay with a like one in the fuse box (horn relay is the same as the fuel pump relay ) I think the fuse and the relay are both in the under hood fuse box on your truck . If these all check out ok then you need to check for power and ground at the fuel pump connector . if this checks out all good then replace the fuel pump . some times if you think the pump is not working you can bang on the gas tank with a rubber mallet this may move the pump winding off of the dead spot and the truck will start ... but this is not a fix .. just a way to get it started to move it or take it to a shop

fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. When you turn the key do you hear fuel pump run? If not odds are the pump is bad.
