I have a 88 camaro and I can't get fuel to the throttle body. I've changed fuel pump and filter. The car had been sitting for about 9 years but it was running when it was parked. Any ideas??

Asked by Oct 24, 2014 at 09:40 AM about the 1988 Chevrolet Camaro RS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put the car in the shop. They did get it
running but that was only long enough for
them to rob me of $1200. I drove it about 30
miles and it was sputtering and kinda
stalling. The next day it was worse and now
it won't start or anything

if it was sitting for nine years with gas inn the tank the lines are probably geld if it didn't start up

It has a throttle body so I guess it's injected. Before I put it in the shop it would only run if I poured gas in throttle body. The shop supposedly fixed it and it would crank and run for a couple days after I paid them but it was running real rough. Now it's back doing the same it was doing before I put it in the shop. New fuel pump new filter and all the electronics dealing with the fuel system. This car has gone from a dream to a nightmare

Sitting for 9 years has it's drawbacks. You might have had rust and dirt in the fuel tank and now it got sucked up back into the line. Did they replace the fuel? Check all your rubber vacuum hoses as they all need to be replaced.
