Try cleaning the battery cables. I just brought my 1992 Sunbird LE in for a similar problem. Turns out there was a short in the steering column. Watch the 20 AMP fuse in the dash fuse box under the steering wheel that powers: door locks, dome light, and horn. If it keeps blowing, take it out. See if you can manage without it. I couldn't so I had to get the steering wheel taken off to find the short to fix it. It drained my 2 year old battery fast. Bummer!

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.

The Pontiac Sunbird, described as an economy car, averages about 23 to 25 miles per gallon in the city. Highway driving increases the gas miles per gallon to between 30 - 35.

No. There would be a gasket between the head and the block, though.

Between the head and the engine block. This is a BIG job and I sugest taking it to the garage.

Starter problems can be caused by several things: Weak battery because of battery failure or alternator that is not charging the battery. Falty connection between the battery and the starter. Solenoid failure or bad connection on the solenoid. Starter failure. Neutral lockout switch failure. Bad connection between keyswitch and starter.
