Question about 1991 Pontiac Firebird
91 firebird v6 3.1 It started up drove it around block let sit for 45 minutes then went to start it and it just turns over and starts while cranking but dies right out when in ign is in run? what could it be?
My car is doing the exact same thing. these cars have a tendancy to jump time. the best way to check is to pull ur plugs and turn the motor over by hand till the #1 cylinder(front left side of engine) is up. u tell if its up by putting a screwdriver or something in the hole. then go to ur distributer and see if the rotor tip is on the #1 spot on the cap. if not the timing is off.

Its a part in the distributor and it is a sensor

Check the fuel delivery system.. before you start your car turn the key on and listen towards the gas tank and double check to make sure fuel pump is working.. replacing the fuel filter and running injector cleaner will always help your car run alot better and only costs 25 bucks total
