I have a 1989 Pontiac Firebird that is hesitating and I dont know why


Asked by Sep 25, 2015 at 01:33 PM about the 1989 Pontiac Firebird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 1998 Pontiac Firebird. I was driving it and it hesitating. The other day
my car was acting REALLY bad. After I had parked it for about 2 hours, I
started it again. After about 2 minutes of it running, it died. The car wont
turn over at all now. It has good power and it has gas. I was told that it
could be the module under the distributer cap. That was tested 5 times at
NAPA and they said it got pretty warm but worked fine. I NEED help with
this. I also bought a fuel filter but was told that 'they' didnt think that was the
problem. Please help me!!

1 Answer


Check for fuel pressure,if good then check for spark at plug,s,hard to say which is the issue,but it will be one or the other,if no spark,replace the distributor module.
