Cross firing spark plug wires is the most plausible cause, did you replace them? If not do that and route the wires like the factory wires where and use spark plug wire looms if the old ones are missing or broken, this is very important. Any good auto parts store can sell you new looms or you can buy them on eBay Motors

Since it is an older vehicle, check under the dash for any "rigging" that might have been done over the years. Start at the battery and follow all electrical wires that lead into the dashboard and fuse panels and check for any frayed or split lines that might be causing you to have a short circuit somewhere. that's what it sounds like to me. Unless you have a huge sound system with some 15" woofers in the trunk you shouldn't be experiencing any power shortages.

2011 Camaro engine miss-firing


Very hard to diagnose without trouble codes, but sounds like a fuel problem - bad gas, fuel filter plugging, fuel pressure regulator acting up, etc. I would certainly check fuel pressure at the engine with key on but not started, and then while trying to start.

Well i have a 1983 chevy s10 2.8 and its been broke down for awhile i just put a full tank in before i was having this problem the thing is it started just fine from the gas station and it was fine for two...


sometimes if a fuel pressure regulator goes bad , you will be able to smell fuel fumes under hood. a leaking pressure regulator will cause---hard starting, poor fuel economy, stalling, check engine light, gas smell under hood. also check all fuel lines under hood.
