If the car starts and is not staying running I do not think it is the fuel pump. It is either your idle air control valve not allowing enough air to get into the engine as they can get clogged pretty easy with carbon. Or it could be your throttle position sensor not functioning correctly. The first one can be cleaned with regular carb cleaner and that may fix the problem,.

If the area under the carpet doesn't have an access panel, you can use a dremel moto tool with the small grinding wheel attachment to cut one out. I believe the cut goes inside the middle humps. (You can see humps running down the trunk area.) Do a web search for the exact location. After you do this you will have to put in a metal plate to cover it. What i do is i cut out 3 sides and not the 4th, then i bend it up and over, then bend it back.

Possibly a weak fuel pump, idle air control valve, vacuum leaks, or loose or damaged wiring in the ignition system. Check for vacuum leaks first. That's the only one that won't cost anything. Make sure all intake bolts are tight, and all hoses are connected properly and in good condition.

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

It sounds like you may have burned out your fusable link. It's a special wire that comes off the starter solennoid and is designed to burn off in the event of an overload. DO NOT REPLACE IT WITH REGULAR WIRE, THIS IS A LEADING CAUSE OF CAR FIRES.
You will want to check for what caused the overload condition that caused the fusable link to burn out in the first place.

I have a 1992 firebird that stalls out then has a hard time starting. if the car sits for a time it will start and run fine some times all day. the next day it will start than stall ,then it will turnover...


Hi, sounds like it's loading up. Recommend you check the fuel pressure regulator for a torn diaphram. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r7427423-fix_poor_idle_high_idle_stalling_fuel . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info

MUTIPORT FUEL INJECTION PONTIAC FIREBIRD 3.1


My 92 Bird with the 3.1 did the same thing after it sat for about 2 months. The car had aways started right away before. I had to jump start it and I thought it would never start.Same as yours after it started. Seem to get better after I ran it awhile. It was getting good spark and was getting fuel. I checked fuel pressure, it seemed to be within specs.then it started to sputter and the pressure dropped to almost nothing. Seems that the fuel pump was going bad, but still would pump enough fuel at times to run. When the car was parked the fuel pressure would bleed off, and when I tried to start it the pump had trouble pumping enough fuel to pressure the system.Long story short! Replace the fuel pump, and filter.....

Cant locate the fuel filter for a 1989 firebird formula


It should be under the car, back by the gas tank

Check under the back seat for an access panel to the pump. Might be the pump or just the level unit. Good luck.
