Question about 1996 Pontiac Sunfire
I have a 1996 sunfire 2.2L. first all my fluid and battery lights came on and my tach stopped working. thought it was just a wiring problem or the famous sunfire computer. swapped out the computer same problem. went out in the morning moved the car to the other side of the driveway ran fine. later that day went out to go to work and it starts idles for about 2 seconds then dies out. if i use and throttle it just gets the rpms to about 3,000 and it dies out again. i've replaced spark plugs and wires, i've tried a remanufactured computer. checked the fuses. what else should i be checking?
I would without a doubt check the fue pressure on this vehicle. The schrader valve is located on the p.side of the fuel rail. If low, check the fuel filter. For the price I personally would change the filter just for the piece of mind. On the side of that the fuel was going into the engine, blow air through onto a clean rag to see what debris was in the filter.
