1986 olds calais, 2.5L, sitting for 9 yrs in AZ. Fuel pump turns on, with gas in the carb car will start and then die.
Put premium gas in tank along with STP fuel cleaner. No gas coming out of line at carb when cranked. Should I replace the fuel pump or is there any chance that continuing to try and start car the gas and cleaner will clean pump and lines? Thanks for any help!! Larry
Uh, carburetor? Don't you mean throttle body? You should have a fuel rail and regulator on this. At any rate, if no fuel pressure, try swapping out fuel filter first. But to do it right, drop the tank, clean it, put a new fuel pump on there, and change fuel filter. If you want to get it running for the sake of moving it or proving it still runs then the fuel filter will probably be enough.
