The only reason it would not start with fire and spark either it needs timing adj. or the motor has jumped time and the timing chain needs reolaced

Hey Guys, I have a CHERRY 2002 Firebird Convertible. Its only got 82,000 on it & is a BEAUTIFUL CAR!!! Last week I had to have the Temperature Gauge Sensor and the Thermostat changed out Last night...

Sounds like a fuel pump to me. But if the check engine light came on before it competely die the first time, then there are several things that would kill the engine. Good luck

1998 Firebird fuel filter

Need more information. Has car been sitting? Is it getting fuel to the intake? ( injector or throttle body?) What engine does it have? What type of carb. does it have? fuel injection, carb., or throttle body? Pull off a plug wire, and check it for spark....does ignition spark? Check timing for jumping. could have jumped timing belt? you need someone to help you visualize and troubleshoot.

1989 Firebird won't start unless gasoline is sprayed in throttle.

your electronic fuel injectors should have a similar connector as another make sure you didn't connect the wrong piece to you electronic fuel injection wires, the connection should be a 2 hole plug and should run from the coil to the intake

My car does not like to start/ stay running

Check the coolant temperature sensor. The thick black smoke is an indication it is flooding or getting to much fuel. The CTS is critical for fuel metering on start up.
