Camaro runs great sometimes and sometimes nothing

Hi, this can be caused by an issue with passkey. Do you have a resistor pellet in your ignition key? Does the security light stay on when the engine fails to start? If yes, I recommend you bypsss passkey by cutting the wires and installing a resistor of the key's value at the bcm to fake it into believing the correct key is in the ignition.

My camaro stalls when its cold and hesitates when i push the accelerator

Sounds kinda like the engine is leaning out. Is it a 1990 or a 1997? Is the check engine light on? For 1990s, an inexpensive key can be purchased at a parts store that you can plug into the ALDL (Diagnostic Port) and then count the flashes of your check engine light to read codes. I would change the fuel filter too, just because it's easy and cheap. You may want to check the fuel pressure. If it's a '90, the regulators go bad easily and is surprisingly easier than you may think. - MUCH easier that rebuilding an old-school carb! Could also be the pump- hope not! Don't let it run low on gas if you can help it. the gas in the tank acts as a coolant for the motor that drives the fuel pump. GOOD LUCK

I have a 1990 camaro 5.7 tune port at first start up cold has extended crank but starts up runs a little rough after a while like 20 min turns off an just cranks but will not run. If I spray starting fluid...

What is the condition of the plugs, wires & air cleaner? Also, what is the fuel like that's in the tank. Poor fuel quality will make an engine act like yours.

It sounds like it could be your starter. Try tapping it with a hammer while having someone simultaneously try to crank the car over.
