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!!

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.
