Have you changed the fuel filter lately. Sounds like you have a fuel restriction. You could have a clogged catalytic converter. When the car is in park rev the engine and listen. Does it sound like the exhaust is having a hard time getting out? Hope this helps.

Sounds as if you have been thinking the issue is fuel related, but what about spark? Bad ignition module or coil? (can be tested at parts store). Vacuum leak? Test with vacuum gauge.

Why does my 95 pontiac firebird sputter and want to die when i give it gas?


Could be a mass air flow sensor or a MAP sensor problem , but without testing that is just a guess . Take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop that has the proper diagnostic tools an knows how to use them . Using a scan tool to view engine sensor data parameters .Fuel trim's ,short an long term , are the O2 sensor's switching normally, coolant temp. A lot more involved then a fuel filter . engine management system.

Sounds like your catalytic converter may be clogged.Have the exhuast pressure tested and look at the cat after a hard pull uphill and see if its turning redish or changing color.

Did you replace distributor cap and rotor? These are common on these engines. If you pull the cap, look at the contacts on the cap. You will probably find a lot of build up on them.
