CHEVROLET CAMARO ENGINE PROBLEM

1991 Chevrolet Camaro • 151,000 miles

I have a 1991 camaro rs with the 305 and I have replaced several parts thinking that they are the problems, such as TPS, ECM, distributor, wires, plugs, cap, rotor, rebuilt the tbi, and probably even more just cant think off the top of my head. The car wont spray the fuel in order to idle, I can keep the car running by pumping the throttle but I cant just lay my foot into it and have it increase rpm, it will just bog out and die but it will spray the fuel. I need this car on the road soon how can I fix this?

NEGATIVE (WAS HOPIN' YOU HADN'T TRIED IT YET--AND THIS BE THE CURE!)---IF IT WERE ALL CARBON-ED UP (EVEN IN THE HOLE) AND YOU GOT IT ALL CLEAN

THIS MIGHTA BEEN YOUR PROBLEM......MAYBE YOU DIDN'T CLEAN IT ENOUGH?

IT ALSO MIGHT BE THAT THE PART IS BAD.......IF CLEANING IT WELL MAKES ANY IMPROVEMENT----YOU MIGHT THINK ABOUT REPLACING IT

PULL THE EGR AND GIVE IT A GOOD CLEANING TOO....CAN'T HURT

I AM NOT SAYING TO SPEND YOUR $$$ JUST TO "PARTS SWAP"

Okay, so I took both of those parts off and cleaned them. It helped a little bit but not much at all. It stil isnt close to idling. It is a little bette when you lay your footin it but it stll bogs out.

At the throttle stop screw, place a piece of thin card board in between and test if the idling speed stabilises. If yes, you might need to adjust the throttle stop screw ( not advised nor required under normal circumstances).
