Have you tried to pull any DTC codes. Here is a link for you so you can pull some codes, but you may have a bad Ignition Control Module (ICM) it's around $40.00 at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instruction to replacing it with common tools. The ICM is common to go bad after a few years due to time and corrosion. It's location is under the rotor in the distributor, as it heats up if fails or any changes in the engine speed. Check the wires to make sure there are no damages. Keep me posted be glad the help. http://www.troublecodes.net/GM/

    If you have an other car and there is an Auto Zone, lone out a fuel pressure gauge and see where your fuel pressure is. Auto Zone will have the step by step instruction for you to get the fuel pressure readings from the shredder valve. Can't recall what the fuel pressure should be when fuel is primed and when it's the engine is running. If your in the low area, you may not have enough fuel pressure to activate the injectors when it calls for. Thinking it's around 42 PSI to 45 PSI on the TPI engine. When the engine is running the fuel drops around 5 PSI and you may be at the bottom of the minimum amount of fuel pressure in the system to keep the engine running when called for more fuel. Then we can try the fuel filter change too if it has not been done yet. Keep me posted friend.

It's called a Schrader valve. "Shredder" is pretty damn funny though. I've got a 92 Camaro and I'm with Molson on this one...replace the ignition module and fuel filter, you'll be good to go. Those modules are **** so stick with an AC Delco brand.

89 camaro starts wont crank when it does wont idle and dies after 3000 rpm when you hold accelerator


Could be a problem with the pickup coil in the bottom of the distributor if equipped. The pickup coil provides the crank signal for the injectors and ignition module.
Did you clear the code and then 53 came back ?
On most models code 53 means the computer or one of the components is getting over 13 volts.

5.0 tpi car will start and idle but when you give it gas it hesitates to accelerate


Try some injector cleaner (Techron). If that doesn't help, check fuel pressure. The fuel pump or filter may not allow pressure to get to specs.
It also could be a mis-calibrated Throttle Position Sensor.
Good luck.

Wish I had an answer - sounds very much like a problem I am having with my '92 LS400. I have a parts car, and have changed out the ECM, fuel pump, injectors, fuel pilter, fuel pressure regulator, ran the can with exhaust unbolted (check for clogged CATs, checked out my timing belt for slippage amoung other things, and nothing works. I have no check engine light on. Do you?

idle air control is used for assisting in fold starts. It sounds like its not functioning propperly. FYI your car is not carberated, its called a throttle body.
