Question about 1987 Chevrolet Camaro

2 Answers

I have a 87 Iroc Z. I can hear the fuel pump running but the gas will not get to the injectors. I put a new fuel pump on just for the heck of it and it started right up. After 5 minutes it stopped again. I can still hear the fuel pump, it just isn't pushing the gas the the engine. Please help.

    No i did not replace the harness connector. Is that the plug that goes in the fuel pump? 5.7, have been told it is a 305 also been told it is a 350 but Im sure it is a 5.7

    I am trying to find a picture so i can locate any and all filters. I only know of the one that connects to the fuel pump and that one was replaced with the pump. Are there more? If any filter is pluged up solid how was it possilbe for the gas to make it through for the 5 minutes when I replaced the fuel pump.

Possible bad fuel pump relay, when you replaced the fuel pump did you replace the harness connector also and also hose where fuel pump goes on. Which motor you have 5.0 or 5.7

Check the fuel filter, they can plug up solid.
Pull it out and blow through it it should be nice and free.
Or the little coupling hose on the pump came loose.

You probably have a bad fuel pump. Get a fuel pressure gauge and check for fuel pressure at the shrader valve. Put the key to the on position. Your fuel pump should run for about 2 seconds. Your pressure should go up to 30-40 psi. If no pressure your pump is bad. Make sure you hear the relay come on, otherwise could be the relay. You should hear it click when you turn the key to the on position.

Fuel pressure? Do you hear the fuel pump running? Read the codes to see if ECM is still alive. Do you have spark at the plugs? Remember all motors need 3 things to run air, fuel, and fire at the right time.

Mazda 2002 tribute just wont start was running good put new gas cap in whats my problem please


Hello there :
I would say the most common problem is a clogged fuel filter. Make sure you follow your manufacturers recommendations as to when you should change the fuel filter. This information should be in your owners manual. Symptoms include sputtering at high speeds or engine not starting at all. Always check the ignition system first, if that's ok then the next suspect is the fuel filter.
Next most common problem is the fuel pump failing. Most modern electric fuel pumps can be heard when you turn the key on. If you don't hear the pump running and your car will not start, it could be your fuel pump. The first thing a mechanic will check is the relay which sends power to the pump. If this is operating correctly then the pump will have to be replaced.
Last but not least is dirty injectors. While the fuel filter does a good job of filtering the fuel, it's not perfect. Over time deposits and tiny particles lodge themselves in the injectors. This can clog and injector and prevent it from delivering the fuel the engine needs. It can also cause an injector to stick open and send too much fuel into the engine. A regular addition of fuel system cleaner like STP Injector Cleaner, or Techtron fuel system cleaner can help keep your injectors clean. Most gas stations, department stores and all automotive parts stores will have a good cleaner available. Add it to your empty tank right before you fill up and it will clean as you drive. I recommend doing this every 3 months to keep your injectors performing like new. Mechanics also offer a cleaning service where they actually disconnect the fuel line and flush cleaner through the engine. This is only necessary when you let your injectors get to a point where they can not be cleaned by a store-bought product. Regular use of a good in-tank cleaner will keep you from having to pay for this service. Where do you buy your gas?
Believe it, or not, it can make a difference. Always buy from a well know national brand service station. Gas stations which are not affiliated with one brand of gas tend to get whatever is left at the end of the day from the delivery truck. One day them might get Texaco, and Exxon another. Also water mixed with gas will cause problems with your engine. The engine will not run right, plus the water will promote rust in the fuel system. I have experienced this when I purchased gas at some no-name gas stations. Your car will feel sluggish and sometimes refuse to run if there is enough water in the gas.
Octane rating tip !!!!
Putting super in the tank will not get you any more performance or gas mileage unless specifically recommended by your cars manufacturer. If your owners manual says put in 87 octane...... DO IT. You are throwing money out the window if you are filling up on Super or Premium and you only need Regular.
Hope this is very helpful for you '
Best regards Michael

1987 IROC, Ran out of gas,put gas in, now service engine light on


if you have high milieage you may have sucked in the gunk on the botton of your tank when you ran out of fuel check if you can hear the fuel pump running for about 2 sec with key on engine off if you hear nothing the problem is with your pump as they will burn out if they run dry for too long,if you hear the pump check for fuel pressure if pressure low check fuel filter to see if clogged by gunk from bottom of tank.

'87 Iroc fuel port injection. Car won't start. Can't hear fuel pump running when ignition is turned on. Starter turns but engine will not start. Where is fuel pump located on gas tank?


The pump is in the tank. Empty the tank, disconnect the filler and vent tubes, and remove the straps that hold it under the car. Take the strap bolts off the rear end and the front should just slide out. Have a jack ready to help lower and roll out of the way.

1988 iroc-z 350 tpi - runs poorly when hot (190-200degrees)


Does it run poor at full throttle or between quarter and half throttle? Does it hessitate? If it does the EGR valve may be worn out. I had an 87 transam with TPI and was having problems with it stumbling and hesitating when it was warmed up. If the car starts hard and you have these problems then the issue may be low fuel pressure. Hook a guage up to the fuel rail and make sure you are getting pressure. If you are only getting a few pounds of pressure it may be the fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. Good luck and if you thought this information was helpful please rate it when you get a chance.

Thanks - Tech101
