    Our 1985 Firebird was parked for 2 years and know it dosnt start. I spray gas down the intake and it will run as long as I keep spraying gas in the intake. I put 5 fresh gallons of gas in the tank since it is parked on the driveway on a slight hill with the nose of the cars higher then the gas tank. Bad fuel pump if the fuses are ok? Adolph

Fuel pump fuse blows

It's a short in the fuel pump circuit wiring. Were those damaged wires where the pump fuse is located? If so, that is where to start looking.
The circuit is not that difficult to follow. The pump wire runs from the fuse to the fuel pump relay (probably in the same location as the fuse). And from the relay the pump wire goes direct to the pump in the gas tank. Somewhere in that path, your wire is shorting out-touching metal or another wire with insulation stripped from it.
Techs use a multi-meter to help look for shorts. Checking a section of wire with an ohmmeter will tell you if the section is good or has a break. Good luck. Take another look at those damaged wires.

More than likely it's fuel related, so try this...

It could be a fuel issue. How old is the fuel filter? Can you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on? Try turning the key to ON without trying to start engine three times waiting for the pump to stop running each time. Then try to start the engine. If it starts, Its a form of Vapor lock caused by the extreme heat we have had lately, and a weak fuel pump.

If none of this works, try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK. At least get a OE pump.

As the problem started when your son had a look at the fuses, I'd suggest you check them yourself. Make sure they're good and in the correct slots.

A couple nights ago my 96 calliac seville sts wouldnt start. the fuel was low, but not empty and since it was cold, I thought that might be the issue. The car was trying to turn over, but wouldnt start....

I had a similar problem with an older corvette. It was the chip & reader on the key & ignition. It would fail me at the worst times! A new key & sensor did help but it was kinda pricey for what i got. Also check to see if your fuel pump is working properly. Locate the schraeder valve on the fuel rail (looks like a tire valve), turn your ignition on but dont crank. Push the centre of the valve in & see if any fuel squirts out. if yes, ur good, if very little then ur pump is being a Btch. The security feature usually triggers the ignition, not the fuel pump... This is a simple "no tools" procedure. Using the proper analytical gadgets will give u much more info...
