SOURCE: no start on 3.4 engine

If your car has spark and runs on starting fluid you have a fuel problem not a cam sensor. 41 lbs of fuel pressure is not enough. Try pinching off the return fuel line and check the pressure. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: 2002 grand prix runs rough,dies service engine

sounds like you have a vacuum leak, check all the vacuum hoses and replace any broken or kinked ones, also check around the intake manifold gasket for leaks. any air leaks after the air flow meter creates 'un-metered' air which inturn will make the car run rough and stall, hope this helps

SOURCE: 2002 grand am 4 cylinder rough idle and rough running

Check the ignition control module. Sounds like the exact same problem I have had with mine. Took it to the dealership and the were able to tell me right away. The ignition control module is very easy to replace and is located on the top of the valve cover. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 1996 Pontiac Firebird-will not start, when it does, runs rough

Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, make sure there is the proper fuel pressure, I think it needs to be between 60PSI to 65PSI but double check that. If the fuel pressure is correct the crankshaft and camshaft sensor send signals to the ECM which trigger the proper injector to pules at the right time. Recap: check the fuel pressure if that is correct, have the car scanned for any DTC codes. Oh and just in case you have no fuel pressure, check the fuse to the fuel pump and fuel pump relay. Keep me posted , be glad to help.

Stalls out at any given time. engine runs real rough

As always, check for trouble codes first.
You'll need to figure out if it is a fuel problem or spark problem.

1995 Firebird After Running Low on Gas

You have most likely sucked residue in the bottom of the fuel tank into your fuel filter, This can cause it to get blocked, Try fitting a replacement fuel filter as it's most likely it's never been changed anyway.

Hey Guys, I have a CHERRY 2002 Firebird Convertible. Its only got 82,000 on it & is a BEAUTIFUL CAR!!! Last week I had to have the Temperature Gauge Sensor and the Thermostat changed out Last night...

Sounds like a fuel pump to me. But if the check engine light came on before it competely die the first time, then there are several things that would kill the engine. Good luck

1998 firebird 3.8 v6 92000 miles runs great until 3000 rpm then it runs rough and starts to miss

Same thing happened to my 94 firebird. Did your car run hot at any point? Mine overheated and ended up melting a couple of plug wires.
I replaced the wires (and plugs). That took care of the problem.
