I have a 1991 manual transmission Pontiac Firebird with 3.1L V6 MPI engine. My dad
haven't use it in year so I decided to use it, I can get it to turn over but can't get it to
start. I took out the old gas and put in new gas, I check the spark plugs, replace the
battery then I try starting it but pink smoke started coming out from the computer and
one of fuel injectors started smoking so I replace both of them and it still won't start.
Do you
have the same problem?

Have you used carb clean or something like that and sprayed it in the intake to see if it starts? I am thinking replace the fuel filter if you haven't already and check fuel pressure, you may need to replace the fuel pump.

Is the computer new or wrecking yard? Have you checked the fuses? Also you need to pull a spark plug wire and check for spark. Let me know what you find ok.
