Sounds like the injector got stuck close because of sitting so long....take em out and cleasn them up real good an try that it should work make ensure the wires have a good solid connection and no bent pins.

How do u no if your car computer need to be flash

Hook it up to a code reader via OBDII for specifics. Tecnically, there is no reason to flash your ECM unless you are using another ECM from a parts car...for say a 1989 Chevy. This ECM was used on the 1989 S-10 truck with the 2.5L four cylinder, the ’89 Camaro with the 5.0L HO V8 and the ’89 Corvette with the 5.7L Tuned-Port V8 engine. The only difference (aside from the vehicle wiring harness pin population) was the PROM. The PROM contains the calibration software for the ECM. Another reason would be to bypass a security locked ECM like a 2001 Pontiac GT which was notorious for shutting off the fuel pump if the security chip in the key lost connection through switched power.

91 Camaro truns over, has fuel and pressure, good spark, i suspect there is no power to the injectors. Ran great, now it shuts off and will not start. Help please as we have troubled shoot many of the...

The 5.0 tuned port engine has two sets of injectors - all injectors are powered by the pink-black wires from two 10amp injector fuses. They get ground signals on the green and blue wires from the computer.
You can use a low voltage test light to check for injector pulse.

On my 89 Camaro TBI V8 305 I am only getting fuel from one of the injectors. I am only getting power to the driver side of the fuel injectors.

Sounds like the injector wiring harness is bad. I would check for voltage at the plug and chase the wires to find the short(open wire) in the harness.

1994 Chevy Camaro, 3.4, V6

are you sure that the fuel injectors were clean when you replaced the o-ring or maybe there is still a piece of o-ring left inside the fuel injector port if this still does not work then replace o-ring with two rings a smaller o-ring and a larger one
