Thanks i'll replace the fuel pump today, does it need a fuel pressure regulator? I know electric pumps have them, but do I need one with a regular fuel pump? Thank you for all your help.

How does a coolant temperature sensor put gas in my oil? And where is it located on my motor? Also my motor doesn't have a computer its a 1984 camaro motor that I put in my s10 2 years ago, it just recently started giving me trouble. Thank you for your help so far, I am gonna replace everything I can to make sure I get whats causing my trouble. Thanks again.

Start the engine and look into the carb throat and see if there's fuel dribbling after you turn it off-if so could be the float sinking or excessive fuel pressure.

The only places that fuel will enter the cylinders is thru the Carb and fuel pump

Disregard the CTS

If it is exccesive fuel pressure, what can cause this on my older motor? I really thank you for all your help, today I bought a new fuel pump, and a carburetor. But if I have to much fuel pressure I need to fix that too. The motor only has 150,000 miles and its been took care of, I just want it back the way it was when I bought it. If it is to much pressure I want to buy what ever I need to fix it. Thanks again for all your help so far, after I get everything I need fixed I will leave a donation for your help. Thanks again

Sir-The fuel pump is to be blame it produces the fuel pressure unless the needle valve of the float is sloppy or the float sinking has a pin leak that would cause an excessive fuel in the fuel bowl.

So since I replaced the fuel pump with a new one, and replaced the carburetor with a new one, then I should have it fixed right? Thanks again for your help.

This is the only places I know where it can leak-unless you got some serious cylinder wear that's going right thru it-
