Cranks up but runs rough for a few seconds then dies, 98 camaro 3.8

    I can get it to rev to 2000 rpms by feathering the accelerator and it runs smooth but it starts starving for gas, then it gets back to the rough idle and dies. My girlfriend ran out of gas last week but it ran fine until the other day. She parked it and the next day it would'nt crank. I got it to idle for about 30 seconds so I changed the fuel filter and it was full of rusty looking gas on the tank side. Fuel pump seems to have good volume and works while turning the engine over.

May also have another filter in the carb. or if some of it fell through the filter into the carb. even one jet clogged with a granule could make it run as such. Spray really well with carb. cleaner, dont use too much starter fluid it is very bad for carb. gaskets.

It sounds to me like you've jumped timing. And if thats the case you will need a complete timing service along with a full service tune up.

    Well then you might not have jumped timing after all. your in tank fuel pump has a filter sack on the inlet and it could very well need replacement also. but if your gonna go that far why not just replace the pump if it hasnt recently been changed.

Replaced my steering column on my 94 camaro with one from a 98 ,car wouldnt start so I grounded the blk/ylw wire on TD start Relay.Car starts and runs only 3 seconds then dies.Anyone have any Ideas?


You may have replaced with a chipped ignition. I'm not sure how that would effect your starting, but my car will run for 2 seconds if I start with a non chipped car, then dies. This is an absolute guess, sorry I can't be more accurate.

98 Suburban will not start


Check for spark when it won't start. If no spark, it's an ignition problem-suspect the crank position sensor. The computer won't cause spark from the coils if the crank sensor gets hot and fails.

SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED BOTH THE ALTERNATOR AND THE STARTER TESTED.THE CAR SHOULD STAY RUNNING OFF THE ALTERNATOR ONCE BOOSTED,IT SHOULD START OFF THE BATTERY WHEN FULLY CHARGED.
