step by step on how to replace them
I have a 1987 Chevy Celebrity. When I start it i have to give it gas rite away or it dies. When I drive it I have to stay on the throttle for about five minutes (includeing stop signs where i hold down brake at same time. When parked the idol runs really high. Once in a while it drops real low then kinda up n down in between. I checked for a vaccuum leak but found none. What am I missing? Does anybody have a repair solution?
Whenever my check engine light comes on the speedometer quits working and vice versa checked all the codes fixed all. Now light stays on all the time but the only code that flashes is 12.
I am having trouble with my 88 celebrity 2.8l v6! A week ago was driving up hill and when reached 60 mph, it stalled out, and let out little black smoke. by the end of day it started to stall around 30 mph, or when i put load on the engine it would stall, now i cant get it to start. if i do it runs a couple of seconds then dies. I have replaced the fuel pump, pump relay, fuel filter, replaced ignition coils, computer, prom, and crank position sensor. there is pressure of 40-42 at start, I tested the ignition control module,20 time 8 from one store, 12 from other and passed every time with no hesitation. I have fuel, spark, and pressure, but will not run, I even went as far as to check wiring to make sure didn't have short out some where...everything's fine!I have no injector pulse but from all six to go out would be strange.... Please help!
Why do I need some throttle pressure to start an EFI engine? By opening the throttle are you telling the computer more gas or more air? Fuel delivery checks good, pressure with no bleed back. No codes other than 12. Runs well but an intermittent problem with the engine cutting out when removing throttle pressure to slow down.
Recently acquired, it runs well but if it sits for awhile between starts, especially overnight, it's very reluctant to fire. After six or so hits, it'll finally catch and all's well. Could this be the fuel regulator allowing fuel pressure to bleed off. The pump makes the normal working noises but the fuel filter could be suspect.
for one i have an 89 2.8L mpfi not the 90 3.1 but they didnt have that listed. but there isnt any spark and the fuel pump isnt turning when i turn the ignition. i know the pump is good because we jumped the pump and it started working. all the relays and the coils have been check and or replaced crank position sensor has been replaced aswell and so has the ecm. what the hell is wrong with this car???
I have a 88 celbrity 2.8 v6 mfi engine,it will not start after it runs and get hot,I,ve changed all ignition modules,sensors,except heat sensor,I get no check engine light and no codes on scanner,someone suggested changeing fuel injector wireing harness which I cannot find as when it is hot I get no fire thru the harness to injectors any help will be greatly appreciated,,thaks
I have a 88 celebrity euro sport 6 cyl.past few days in the new england cold the car will run great and all of a sudden the engine light comes on and the motor seems to become slugish and soon dies. I pull of to the side of the rd put it and park and restart. has a tough time re starting so i hold the gas down n throw it in drive. almost seems like it not getting fuel after the car becomes warm not sure. o2 sensor fuel filter not sure the problem. 109k the car has been well taken care of. alternator and batery reading 14 amps for out put. thanks for your help. Also wanted to add the speedo stop working when the engine light comes on.
I have a 4 cylinder '88 Celebrity and I have a fuel problem. I was told to replace the fuel pump and computer, and I did, but it didn't work.
The problem is; the car starts, but instantly dies. The pump pushes enough gas to start the car and that's all (> a quarter cup). I managed to get it home by continuously starting and smashing the gas pedal.
So if it's not the pump, computer, or even the fuel relays, what might it be?
i actually have a 1989 chevy celebrity, and after 20 mins off driving or just idling it shuts off, and then it wont start
On longer trips (greater than an hour drive), and seemingly worse on hot days, my car has been pretty consistently getting into a state where it stalls when I stop at a red light. It takes a few tries, but it eventually starts afterward.
None of the check engine, voltage, or temperature lights have come on prior to any of these events.
I noticed if I give it gas, or pulse the break in a certain way I can sometimes keep it from stalling out.
I had it in the shop to check the idle air intake, and they said it was clean. Also they were unable to reproduce the issue in the shop, though it has been happening on most stops after a certain point on a long trip.
Note: This is actually a 1988 model Celebrity.
One or more pistons quit firing at no predictable time, temperature or speed. Engine will resume firing within two-three miles of driving, just need to baby it along. I've relpaced all six injectors, the fuel filter, the ECM, spark plugs, plug wires, intake plenum gaskets and all fuel related o-rings on the engine. The fuel pressure is within specs. Compression is good. I've cleaned the air horn and visually inspected all wires for obvious breaks. The 'check engine' is not illuminated. I've checked for a stored code but get the condition good read out. Any other ideas? Thanks. . . Pete
when I drive and shut off my car it wont restart til after it cools off. The check engine light is on but no codes are stored in it.
I am lost and need some help.
HI, my car is actually a 1988 Celebrity with a 2.8L engine. I understand it could be a lot of things wrong with this car. It has sat for a year & a half. I replaced the alternator and battery. Had no problem starting. Drove it for 2 days with no problems then it started spuddering(cutting out)and died and now I can't get it to start. Could this be the fuil pump or should I look somewhere else. The check engine light has not been on. It does still try to turn over it just wont start.
my rigth front wheel shaks driving it spees about 25mph
how to change a starter
starting problms will not started
how to change a starter on my car it will not started
the car has not turned for 10 years engine started well but then it get overheated thanks for reply
Car starts & runs fine until I drive it about 10 miles and turn it off for 20-30 minutes. When I try to start it back it takes several times to get it to start. I have replaced the throttle positioning sensor, map sensor, fuel filter, spark plugs & wires, and fuel injector trying to fix the problem with no success. (It is actually a 1988 Chevrolet Celebrity NOT a 1990)
why does this car runs good for about 5 miles and then stalls out.I noticed that when it gets hot it shuts off,and once it cools off it will start back up.I have had the crank sensor,ecm control module,computer and coil packs replaced.I noticed that the injector stop spraying fuel but the fuel compression test shows atleast 40 psi pressure in the fuel rail.
The car runs but when it gets hot it shuts off. It stops the injectors from spraying fuel.But when the car cools it will start up again.
Ok, so I really need to know what's going on. My car is a 1987 Chevy Celebrity with 104,000 miles on it. Today it suddenly decided to idle REALLY rough (when i opened the hood the whole damn engine was shaking). To top it off, after I threw in some coolant, smoke started rising from the defroster, but that stopped when i turned the defroster on. If it were just the rough idle, I know that it could be in need of an oil change (it is due this month for one), but seriously, I don't know what could cause the problems and I have no clue if this is serious or not. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME!
car became sluggish and died while driving and now will not start, but does still turn over
When i start my car it starts just fine. But if i drive it for about ten miles and park it and let it sit for about 1 hour and i go to start it it misses real bad and when i put it in gear it tries to die.But if i go a short distance and let it sit for a shorter amount of time it starts just fine.
