If your engine is ideling fast its probably temperature senser. There is no adjustment for idle.

that last answer is not entirely true. u can adjust the idle. but it depends on if its a throttle body unit that looks like a carburetor or a smaller unit. on a TBI unit, there is a screw u can adjust but the only way to adjust it is with the right tool. its not a Philips screw or straight blade. but if its idling high or fast it might be the idle air control valve. the one went out on my 1985 sunbird and caused it to idle funny.

all depends if it's carburated or fuel injected.

I believe that the fuel pump for the 94 Pontiac sunbird is in the gas tank.

On most or all gas powered cars that R fuel injected from the factory, the fuel pump is inside the gas tank from the 1980's to present.

Standard fuel pressure for a 91 Pontiac Sunbird is between 50 and 55 PSI. This is the idle pressure to allow for maximum efficiency of the fuel injectors.

Idle speed cannot be adjusted on this model. No manual adjustments available. Problem may lie in fuel pump, or fuel filter or temp sensor.

The fuel filter is located back behind the fuel tank.

The fuel relay on a sunbird in under the hood on the left side just by the water over flow tank.

located inside the take you will have to lower the tank to get to it

Under vehicle, center, below trunk area, near fuel tank, mounted in fuel line.

Trace the fuel line from the tank to the engine and it should be inline about mid car.

unclip one end and unbolt the other be careful of the plastic fuel line

Under the hood in the fuse/relay module.

It is fuel injected and there are no adjustments.

It's a device that measures the oxygen level in a car's exhaust.The computer uses this to adjust the amount and timing of fuel injected.It's a device that measures the oxygen level in a car's exhaust.The computer uses this to adjust the amount and timing of fuel injected.

My 1992 Fire Bird has a 305 throttle body fuel injected.

User Avatar

does the engine have a carburetor or is it fuel injected? A carbed engine has mixture screws along with a base idle screw, a fuel injected engine the idle is computer controlled.

User Avatar

Fuel pump, blown fuel pump fuse, fuel filter clogged, fuel pressure regulator, or defective ECU.

It is Fuel Injected and does not have a carburetor.It is Fuel Injected and does not have a carburetor.

Yes....as far as I know the last American made engine that used a carb was the 1987 307 4bbl. All have been fuel injected since then.
