Try scanning the live data for the coolant temperature sensor after the engine is warm to see if it matches actual temp.

Hey, very good possibility that the engine position sensor is failing. Its a bit of a pain to change if it has the same design as the 3800s in the vans. The harmonic balancer will have to come off the front of the engine and you will need to make sure the sensor is adjusted to the proper position when ypu put it back together. Be gentle with the sensor. They are very easy to break. If you have done something like this before seek help. Travis, pro mechanic.

Check your throttle linkage cables to make sure they are connected correctly to the throttle valve. If they are then take off your air filter tube, start your car leave it in park and have someone rev the engine to see if the throttle valve opens or not.

Possibly a weak fuel pump, idle air control valve, vacuum leaks, or loose or damaged wiring in the ignition system. Check for vacuum leaks first. That's the only one that won't cost anything. Make sure all intake bolts are tight, and all hoses are connected properly and in good condition.

91 firebird v6 It started up drove it around block let sit for 45


my car is doing the exact same thing. these cars have a tendancy to jump time. the best way to check is to pull ur plugs and turn the motor over by hand till the #1 cylinder(front left side of engine) is up. u tell if its up by putting a screwdriver or something in the hole. then go to ur distributer and see if the rotor tip is on the #1 spot on the cap. if not the timing is off.
