  6. i was looking at that but im afraid that i will end up replacing everything.i had a camaro that i ended replacing several parts before i did the right one.
  7. i wiggled the wires to the sensor the other day but it made no difference.whats the correct fuel pressure?i already have a guage.i assume the fuel filter is under the middle of the car like my camaro was?
  8. my cars broke too but i like to try to fix them instead of a mechanic because im cheap.lol
  9. i can't find my spark tester so i shot some starter fluid down the tube from the air breather.nothing but backfires.
  10. i know i could search but i hope someone will suggest what to check first.i was driving down the road and all of a sudden the car started running badly.i stopped at a store and the car started back up still running badly.i drove a quarter mile to where i was going and cut the car off.five minutes later it wouldn't start.im glad i have AAA.still won't start.i can hear the fuel pump priming.
  11. id be tempted to try to swap the 3.8 into the fiero.pocket rocket.

  16. i STILL haven't found a single reatta in a junkyard ever.i check pickaparts and lkqs website every thursday.no right year rivs either.
  17. i bypassed the relay the windows and sunroof is on last year so could roll up the windows without a key.the radio goes off when i open a door not with the key as i thought.
