A fuse will blow for 2 reasons . 1) If the device has a Short in the circuit that runs through this fuse. 2) If the device draws more amperage from the power source through the fuse than the fuse will handle. ex. if a fuel pump or starter has a 20 amp fuse and the starter/fuel pump is going bad and draws 30 amps it will blow the fuse. A fuel pump on a 1996 vehicle is located in the fuel tank and is kept cool by the surrounding gas and the gas that flows through it. Overheating a fuel pump is virtually impossible. That being said there is a High probability that replacing the fuel pump and relay will fix this problem. It is quite common for this to occur in the GM vehicle of 1996. When the pump starts to fail, it draws an excessive amount of amperage and would blow the fuse. Hope you find this information useful.

Here is a link for you to check the DTC code to see what issues your engine management has detected. I am going to suspect the EGR valve may be stuck open, that's why your having most of the problem you have described. Good luck and keep me posted and check or replace the EGR valve, the car is too old to just clean out the EGR valve.

1992 Camaro Over heating

Man! this is a good one! Try painting the spair tire blue! If that's not it, Make sure the fans are pulling air through the rad. not pushing. (it's easy to wire them in reverse). Did you convert to 134? If so the condenser may need to be replaced with an after market, more efficient one. Also recheck the small stuff like, water flow, kinks in hoses,thermostat.

Please help

take off fan and fan shroud. then the radiator hose. then the 6 - 8 bolts that hold the water pump on. clean surface of block where gasket would go. use rtv sealant on water pump and seat the gasket to it. let it sit for 10 mins. then install water pump, hoses and fan and fan shroud. if you need more help you can go to your local parts store and pick up a haynes manual. this will have more detail and pics too.
