My wifes firebird a v 6 has a problem while on the way shopping it started to buck as if running out of gas. Has fuel and replaced the fuel filter. Took it to garage and they have had it over a month. Sometimes it does it and sometimes not. One day they actually had it so it bucked. There are no codes. The garage says they replaced a couple of sending units and it was fixed. Picked it up and it was all right for a day then started to do the same thing. Back to the garage. They like to make sure things are bad before they replace them. The got a aftermarket computer to see if it was in that. With the aftermarket computer it runs but does not show any speed on the speedometer. They checked with dealer to get it reprogramed but dealer says because of age they do not do it. So the problems I am wondering about is where I can get another computer if that is the problem that matches the car. It is a v-6 with a 5 speed transmission, electric windows and door locks and cruise control everything else is more standard for the car. The main problems when it all started was it sputtered when driving even when accelerating. Then it idles high Around 2300. Would it be in the computer? Mike Ritzel.
have the same problem?
