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.

Pontiac firebird 1994 v6 wont turn over unless gas pedal is pressed i just changed fuel filter. what could this be?


When you say won't turn over, do you mean that in order for the starter to engage you must press the gas pedal? Or do you mean that the vehicle will only fire and run once the gas pedal is pressed?

After I know that I can better answer your question

1992 firebird run good then it jist stop runing


Have you changed the fuel filter? Does it start and die right away, or does it take a few minutes?

Car will start for a few seconds then dies.


Still sounds fuel related to me. Getting minimal fuel enough to start & or rev, but not maintaining proper pressure required. Try this. Get a can of WD-40 ready, remove air intake hose at throttle body. Start car & when it starts to begin to die, spray some WD-40 into front of throttle body & see if engine continues to run, as long as you keep giving it squirts of 1-2 seconds. If it does, change fuel filter first, but be prepared to do pump too. If you can get a fuel pressure test done on it, that would be even better. Let me know what happens.
