My 98 pontiac firebird is taking too long to start, whenever I try to turn on the car it takes about 20 to 30 seconds to start, but sometimes it starts right away, and after it turns on, the car shakes a lot like if its gonna turn off because it has no gas.
People had told me that the problem is on the fuel part, I would like to know whats the problem.
thanks

Check the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure tester if its within specs-the pressure could be low, due to leaky injectors, clogged fuel filter and failing fuel pump
