Question about 1990 Pontiac 6000

2 Answers

I am having problems. I just bought a 1990 pontiac 6000 le with a 3.1 V6. Yesterday, I test drove it and it drove like a champ. When I was taking it home it stopped running. Found out it was getting gas. Replaced the fuel filter and it started right up. Drove great until today. Going to get gas(to finally fill the gas tank) the car wouldnt start back up after getting the gas. Im getting the gas to the engine but it wont catch.Any suggestions?

Hello Steel1226,

Found out it was getting gas...?? ("NOT" I am guessing).
How did you find that...?

While I don't think a NEW FUEL filter is a bad thing
IT can detract from good trouble shooting...

Just as MOST FOLKS...
when presented with OXYGEN SENSOR alarms... will
buy new OXYGEN SENSORS only to find they are
ACTUALLY reporting an OXYGEN issue...

SAVE YOUR MONEY... Get your codes properly read..!!

There are only a couple of things that will stop a car
like that and (I think) only ignition power, fuel pump &

SOURCE: Problem with 1994 Pontiac Sunbird LE

Sounds like just a broken Cable in your shifter. Should be fairly easy to fix and cheap the cable should be more than 70.00 usd if that and the repair should take about an hour so what ever the shop charges plus the price of the parts. I would say 150.00 May be depending on the shops prices. don't be to scared I have seen the cable **** out many many times and I am sure thats the problem, So don't let them scam you if they try to say its the tranny get a second opinion. Thanks Bear001

SOURCE: timing a pontiac 6000le 2.5 engine

first check to be sure the vavuum lines at the throttle body are in there correct places.
on the main pulley of your engine, the one on the crank shaft there will be a little notch on it. mark the notch with some chalk or a dab of white paint. then loosen the bolt that holds down the distributor until you can turn the distributor. turn the distributor a little bit, snug the bolt up and try it. once you have the car running you will need a timing lite to set the timing to the correct timing mark. which should be 8 degrees before top dead center for you car.

Sounds like you are loosing fuel pressure intermittently. Is there any damage to the fuel lines? Maybe the fuel pump is on its way out (loosing prime.) If you find this helpful, please rate, thank you.

Possible blown head gasket. Check the oil to see if there is water in it. When it starts, does water or steam come out of the exhaust pipe? Those are 2 signs of a blown head gasket.

1990 pontiac grand am le problems

Catalytic converter is probably plugged. To test remove O2 sensor. Use or purchase a fuel pressure test gauge old school fuel systems 0 to about 10 psi. Get or make a o2 adapter and hook gauge to check exhaust back pressure. Should be maximum 3 psi or less. Willing to bet you'll peg the gauge. To make an adapter bust out porcelain from a older Ford 18 mm spark plug. Solder 1/8 or 3/16 brake line into plug base. It will screw in place of o2 sensor to make the test.

You have a bad idle air / idle sensor. Your car believes that you are in idle at all times so when you come to a stop the engine floods. When the fuel evaporates you can drive again. Drove me crazy when it happened to me.
