Question about Pontiac Sunbird

1 Answer

I bought this car and it ran, so i moved it to my house, shut it off, and went to start it a while later. It started nice, but when i bring the rpms to about 3500 and it starts kinda backfiring and chugging and dies, but i turn the key off and back on it starts and idles until the rpms raise. so i replaced the fuel filter, and that didnt do much. I got the trouble codes, 22, and 33. Please help, Thanks

Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

This is a good indication of a bad ignition control module. The module is located under the coil pack (where all of your spark plug wires come from) and may be testable. Auto Zone says they can't accurately test this part but it is $100 to replace it.
