Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2.8L 5 speed 1986 pontiac firebird. It seems like it doesn't get enough fuel to the motor. I know for sure it gets fuel to the fuel rail. I've check each injector and every one of them pushes fuel. I've put in a new fuel sending unit, fuel pump, fuel relay, fuel pressure regulator and still nothing. The car will start and idle for a second with engine start but thats it. I'm stumped, please help?

SOURCE: olds alero 2.4 idle fuel pressure

most likely idle air control sensor or low engine coolant I know sounds funny but IAC uses coolant to regulate idle. Idle air control valve or throttle body positioning sensor.

Fuel pump


Fuel pressure gauge you can purchase this at any auto store for about $45. Then there is a vale you can screw it to on the fuel rail

1991 firebird will not idle cold and bogs down while driving


This sounds like a fuel issue to me. If I am not mistaken, this engine has two injectors running on a separate fuses. Remove the air cleaner assembly, and make sure both are firing while engine is running. If so, then check the fuel pressure. If you have a fuel pressure gauge, connect it to the fuel rail, and start it up. Remove the vacuum line from the fuel pressure regulator to see where it is set. You should have at least 36lbs of fuel pressure. If the pressure is too low, check the fuel filter. It may be clogged, or you might have a weak fuel pump.

Also you changed the throttle position sensor, you will need to make sure it is set properly.

hope this helps,
Chris
