I have a 2000 camaro LS1 5.7 (68,000miles) I was at work when this happend. I went to the gas station to put some gas so when I was done I tryed to start it up but I wouldnt so I called my sup. And he gave me a jump thinking that it was my batt. But the car wouldnt start so we tryed pushing it (its a stick). But nither that worked. So we just left because I had to get back to work so we came back like a 2 hrs later and I tryed again and it did. So I took it home had it at the house for 2hrs then I went out to my friends house once I decided to come back home the car wouldnt start so I tryed a 2nd time and and it started. But it choked and turned off and it just dintn want to start after that. So I left it at my friends house and towed it the next day to my house now I tryed again and it did start. But it would dye out and I tryed 1 more time but its just wont start. Do you have any ideas? :Cry:

Try checking the fuel pressure to rule out the pump, then we'll go to igntion system looking for spark-do you know how to do this.

u think it might be my wires? Because I just did my spark plugs. And the only thing I can think of is ( my fuel filter or the gas pump) ignition fuse perhaps but how to check they arent seethrough. A lil bit of guide wont hurt if u please. Ill apreciate it very much. My uncle said something about the ignition coil paks but how to know if they're bad?

Try this check for a snapping blue spark-not yellowish with a plug wire disconnected and grounded to the engine while cranking it over-do you have it. I need to know this before we continue there's a reason to it before we get to the hard ones. Start or No start

sorry I was out for a few days. My car still here ok I checked the fuel pump like u told me to, when I turn the key to the on position u could hear the pump work, so I disconected the hoses but not the power just to see if it was pumpin gas but it turned out to a no no. So I changed the relay. But that was a nono. Now I remember u said something about checking for spark. Why? And how do i.?
