At first my Tbird wouldn't start so I replaced the fuel filter and pump and now it barely starts and idles but as soon as I put pressure on the gas pedal it starts to make a puddering sound and I have to put the pedal to the floor and hold it there to keep it running but it don't accelerate, it's when I release the gas pedal that it starts to accelerate, all while still in park. The check engine light is on, the car is almost constantly borderline overheating, and I just need to know what I need to fix before I fix everything but the problem and keep spending unnecessary money lol. Someone please help that knows what they're doing. This is my first car and I want it to leave a good taste in my mouth for this classy car.
My reserve tank has a cracked in it and I need a new one.
Over heats when and heaterms still works
The part I need is an arm about 6 inches or less with a silver pin on one end.
I have recently began working on the car myself since I spent close to 2k on fixing the car already. I have replaced both ECT and CHT sensors, bought a new fan and still it does not come on by itself. Could it be a fuse in the control module box, or the sensor connectors? If it's the fuse, where do I put the fuse because I don't have the owners manual and I can't find it online. Thank you for your help in advance.
Spark plugs been changed. Fuel injectors cleaned. Using premium gas. Tried sea foam.
