89 camaro 305 throttle body

When I try to start my 89 camaro 305 the throttle body doe`snt want to release any fuel. I have to spray fuel directly into the tb to get it started. Sometimes this will work sometimes it wont. Once started it does run but very rough. I cant just press the gas easily when taking off or it quits. I have to always kind of gun it just to keep it going, but at higher speeds theres no problem I spend more time stuck some where once its turned off, it can take me up to a hour just for it to start but never starts without me spraying the gas in it with a spray bottle.

Your fuel filter might be clogged. take it off and see if you can blow thru it.....if theres any resistance, you need a new one. it should be easy to blow thru . yes USE your mouth , and yes it taste bad. but thats how ya fix it

92 Camero SOMETIMES wont start, backfires or starts rough - but will run fine after it DOES start


I would want to know if it is ignition or fuel for sure. There are a few things you can try to narrow down the possible cause.
What does the cap and rotor look like, and is the spark a strong blue when it is running rough ?
Have you checked the actual fuel pressure with a gauge ? Does it matter if you spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the throttle body ?
Any trouble codes stored in the computer ?
Its possible the coolant temp sensor is wrong and the computer thinks the air temp is 90 degrees instead of say 20 degrees. Or there is moisture in the dist cap or on the plug wires, and so on.

I do not get a start up pluse on 91 Camaro RS 305


I assume you are not getting fuel spray from the injectors ?
If you are getting voltage to the injectors you should be able to ground and get a spray. If no spray, they may be stopped up from sitting.

I have a 1992 camaro RS 305 with 5 speed. It will turn over but won't start, if you pour gas in throttle body it will fire right up and run like it should. I put in new fuel pump, new ECU, new TPS, still...


If you turn the key to the on position and you hear the fuel pump run, does it run for longer then 5 seconds? If so then you are going to need to look at your fuel filter, if it stays running then you are going to need to look at your fuel regulator. You can also go to Auto Zone and buy a fuel pressure test kit or rent one, and check your fuel pressure on the fuel rails. Check for spark also, if you are low on spark then you are not going to fire, unless you dump more fuel then you need to into the throttle body.

Wont start


simpler that exposing the throttle body just depress the accelerator 3/4 and try to start.

If like before, the vehicle starts... watch the rear view mirror for black smoke

both indicates a leaking injector(s)

1989 camaro 305 run rough and won't idle. Spits


spray some brake cleaner in the throttle body to keep it running and keep spraying and see if you can rev it up. If this produces better results then check fuel pressure. Most likely time for a pump. If this happen all of a sudden I would not suspect the fuel filter as being the cause and I would also replace it with the new pump.

91 camaro not tpi it starts up fine but until it warms up you try


idle air control is used for assisting in fold starts. It sounds like its not functioning propperly. FYI your car is not carberated, its called a throttle body.
