I've replaced the things stated in the video, and also the air filter and fuel filter. There is spark, and there is fuel getting to the injectors. I don't know where to turn to besides taking at apart to get at the timing chain and stuff to make sure the timing marks are lined up. That's my last resort if I have to go that far. Also, the check engine light stays on when the key is on, but there weren't any codes the last time I checked. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you youtubers! Update!!! I just replaced the pick up assembly in the distributor.

Megasquirted 3.1L V6 on stand part 2 of 2
Part 2 of the Megasquirted V6 on the engine stand. The engine
starts...runs, rev's freely, sounds great Screen shots of Megasquirt while
the engine is running and more tidbits of the test stand. The operational
similarities to FIS6 are quite surprising.
1989 Camaro RS
Update! So far is runs better with some new gas but still bogs and
sputters, pulling fuel filter and checking vacuum lines in the next couple
days. Also the 02 sensor or whatever its called got ripped off the cat and
the tube with the wires is all wadded up...what the hell is with that?
And got money rolled in for a gear drive! Radiator is going in this week
sometime and buying a bigger radiator fan for PIR Wednesday nights. Also
thinking of open element air cleaner. Any ideas?
How To Diagnose A Fuel Pump Failure - EricTheCarGuy
I had the privilege of visiting Airtex, and while I was there I spoke with
Shane Neuman about diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. In this video we go over
the basic steps of diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. So if your vehicle isn't
starting and you suspect a fuel pump problem, here are some steps to follow
to confirm your suspicions. Another 'quick' test is to bang on the fuel
tank and then try and start the engine. Sometimes this works, just don't
bang too hard, you could damage something.

1991 Camaro 3.1 Liter v6 Idle Problems
I finally got it running again after putting new spark plugs in it again,
but it's idling like this now. It either does this, or it idles rough and
makes the car shake. I've replaces the IAC valve, and the TPS. Also, when
it idles kind of normally without bouncing back and fourth, the rps go up
to about 4g's when I barely touch the gas. I know nothing is binding with
the cable, and that made me change the TPS, even though there were no jumps
in resistance when I tried to test it. The throttle also seems to stick
even when I barely press it, and again, the cable isn't binding or
anything, and the throttle body is clean. I've checked for vacuum leaks,
and I haven't found any. Any ideas would be helpful.

GM Troubleshooting Part 5 - Fuel System including filter, pump, injector, regulator
This is part 5 of a multi part video series about how to troubleshoot any
ignition, fuel injection or timing issue. I describe the fuel system and
what I did to test it. specs referenced in the video: fuel pressure (in
PSI): TBI (9-13), MFI (41-47), CMFI (58-64), CSEFI (55-61). Those
pressures are for key on, not running. When running normal range is
3-10psi less for all injection systems. Injector resistance (in ohms): TBI
1.16-1.36, MFI (11.6-12.4), CMFI (1.37-1.77). In the video I forgot to
mention it is fairly difficult to bend the spider legs of the new injector
unit so they fit in the intake holes. Pay attention to the way the
original was installed (legs going over/under the nut kit lines) and try to
replicate the original routing. Oh... and I forgot to mention that if you
have a fuel lean condition, spray quick start in the throttle body and see
if it starts... if it runs on quick start, you have proven your condition
is a lack of fuel.
UPDATE Dec 8_2011: I still have the 2 moulded fuel injector lines (new
never used) and I want to sell them... if you need these lines send me a
private message and we can work out a deal. Thanks.
