96 Firebird won't start

Asked by Apr 16, 2016 at 06:45 PM about the 1996 Pontiac Firebird Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So today i replaced my starter thinking it was bad
because car didnt turn over well. Then i replaced
my coil packs and spark. Plug wires. My fuel pump
is good i hear it hum on when i turn the key to on
position. But when i go to start it, sounds like it
wants to come on and it gets 3/4 of the way but
doesnt fully come on. What else could be the
problem? Batter is good i gave it a jump and
charged it plenty of times even had it tested. Fuel
line is receiving pressure. Check it from the valve
uo top by the engine. What else should i do??
Would buy a code reader help any?

Are you getting any codes on the dash is there any lights on on the dash? And when's the last time you did a major tune-up like replacing the spark plugs changing the fuel filter? Make sure your battery connections are free of corrosion and are nice and tight and clean. Give us some more information on the vehicle , try these things and get back to us.
