Hi,have you done a fuel pressure check on the vehicle.This will check the status of your fuel pump.If its a carb engine it will be 5 to 7 psi.If its fuel injection it will be approx.35 to 45 psi.Good Luck!!!

My pontiac firebird turns on fine but after a 5-10 min drive it idles low then turns off then i turn it back on and it idles fine for like 5 seconds then turns off again i even press on the gas but it...


Sounds like a venting problem with the gas tank. There is a vent for the tank that could be blocked and not allowing pressure to equalize.
Like sucking milk from a bottle without allowing it to vent.
The vent could involve the canister purge system.

1989 pontiac firebird 305 v8 starts and idles


Your idle air control valve may be dirty or the wire harness may be damaged. First try cleaning the throttle body with throttle body cleaner and make sure you use all the can up and try to get the idle air control valve cleaned. A faulty or dirty idle air control valve will cause engine to stall when put in to gear from idle. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% soon.
