Question about 1984 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

2001 z71 takes a long time to start

When I let it sit more more than an hour, it takes 5 to 10 seconds to start. It runs fine. I changed the fuel filter and that did not help. I was wondering if this is a common thing. I think it is a 5.3 Liter. It has 46,000 miles on it.

2003 chevy tahoe won't start if it has been sitting for a few days. it will start fine if it has been running the same day, otherwise it takes over 10 tries to start. just changed the fuel filter and the...


The problem is the fuel pump. The fuel pump assembly located in the fuel tank has a one way check valve in it. This check valve either jams or wheres out and then the fuel drains back into the tank after sitting for a period of time and makes the truck almost impossible to start. If the truck runs fine once it is started then this is your problem. To verify the problem purchase a fuel pressure gauge kit and connect it to the fuel rail, turn the key to the on position but do not start it the pressure shopul read around 56 PSI or more. Turn the ignition off and let the truck sit for approx 2 to 3 hours and recheck the pressure gauge if it has dropped then the check valve is no good and you have to replace your fuel pump.

After it stops, the car sit for about 2 hours or


Possible cause would be the coil breaking down. After the car starts and runs again and stops take a inline spark tester and connect between the coil and the spark plug wire to check for fire. If no fire then remove the coil and replace it. hope this will help you.

I have a 96 S-10 Blazer, Does not want to start


Replace the fuel filter to help the fuel pump, but it sounds like the fuel pump check valve has gone bad and your losing your fuel pressure to start the engine. Your going to have to keep priming the fuel system by turning the ignition key to the run position for 5 seconds 3 times before you try to start the engine. The only fix for this is to replace the fuel pump, and that is costly. Good luck and take note: the fuel pump has a life time of around 150,000 miles and anything past that is borrowed time.

No not the fuel pump. You most likely need to do a tune uo. New spark plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter. Deffinently change out the spark plugs. I would suggest using autocraft, autolite (fords brand} or some densos or ngk for better performance. Hope this solves your problem.

Flooding out. using lots of fuel. black smoke


you could have a bad injector spider if the truck is vortec,if not look to the idle air control valve if this part is bad it won't get the right amount of air and flood the truck out, hints why you are smelling fuel, also look at to o2 sensor if this is bad the computer won't adjust the timing another reason you're smelling fuel . hope this helps you and good luck!

Hard to start chevy 350 vortec


You will need to do a fuel pump pressure leak-down test, the pump must not loose more than 5 PSI overnight, u will need a cheap fuel pressure test guage, the test port is on the fuel supply rail to the injectors on the intake manifold, it looks like a tire valve but metal with a plastic cap on it, u may be able to borrow this guage from Kragen, Autozone or a parts store like them, if not they are very cheap, less than $20 US. Run the engine with the test guage hooked up, turn off the engine and then check it in an hour or so, if it drops more than 5 PSI then u will need to replace the fuel pump in the gas tank. One note make sure the connection for the guage is tight with no leakage or the test is invalid
