    Just started about a week ago. I filled up and it showed only a half tank. Then it decided to stay at E for a few days. Now it gives a reading but its almost as if it only uses the upper half of the gauge. So 3/4 is now half. I've read that fuel system cleaner can fix it so the dirty sensor must...

    In my ongoing 3 month plus quest to figure out what is causing my intermittent here and there misfire which only happens in top RPM's at around 5k RPM, I did a compression test on the cylinders.:icon15: I did this as a suggestion from a friend and I did have some feelings that my engine may...

    Hello i have a 96 firebird with the 3.8L V6. My car has issues with running it like to die when i stop. The rpm's will either drop down to 500rpm's or lower or even die. It has really rough idle also and misfires and sputters when accelerating. I have replaced the spark plugs with AC Delco...

    I bought a 1995 3.4l a few months back. Runs good generally, but there is an intermittent problem with respect to fuel flow. I will be driving along normally, then suddenly the problem appears, it seems like fuel starvation. It begins sputtering and popping, and when I press the pedal down, it...

  11. V6 Camaro and Firebird Tech
    (Started a new thread since other issue has been resolved) Was outside and had the hood popped earlier. Checked my oil because I've noticed my Check Oil light has been popping up lately. I just had the oil changed a couple hundred miles ago, so it's not due yet. Oil looked okay, and was still...

  15. 4th Gen (1998-02) Camaro and Firebird Tech
    Anyone else have an issue with this sucker? When I bought the car I quickly found out there was an issue with the FLS. Easy to figure out after running out of gas on the side of the highway when your fuel gauge reads full, or just filling up and and after a mile of driving it drops to E...

    I have trouble starting my 94 Firebird when cold. I have to crank the engine over about 3 times and hit the gas to fire it up. Once the engine is warm it starts no problem turn key. When I first got the car the PCV air in off the intake was broken. The little rubber 90 degree boot that goes...
