Question about 1991 Chevrolet Camaro
When i give my car gas it acts like its going to die (like its trying to run out of gas but its a full tank) then backfires but it wont die and i need to know what is causing this problem any info will help THANKS!
The backfire is only a symptom and is caused by unburned fuel entering the exhaust system while the engine is misfiring.
When it gets its 'groove' back, the returning spark ignites that fog that has made it into the exhaust system.
You do need to find the source since that backfiring is raising Cain with the catalytic convertor and possibly the muffler too.
Once it 'catches' again, does it seem to accelerate normally?
If not, it could be only a fuel filter that needs replacing.
If you don't have a code reader, it might be a good time to buy one.
The cost is very reasonable at $20 +S&H:
You can pay double if you really want to though-
