I've finally made the decision to sell my wagon, I need something 1975 and older or something new enough that I'm willing to spend money for someone else to work on. Located in Riverside, CA.

The fuel pump acted up around 2 months ago and I needed to bang the bottom of the fuel tank to get it home from work. It started up and took me to the store and back home the next day but then wouldn't start again. I got it to start today with just the turn (and hold) of the key but it ran for just under 2 minutes (I took a video of it running!) but then shut down. It started again after letting it sit for a couple of minutes but shut down after less then 5 seconds. Tank is 3/4 full.

I just simply don't want to mess with it at this point since it's not what I need in a car anymore.
Price is $1200, any less and parting it out becomes a viable option but SoCal cars shouldn't be parted out unless wrecked!
Of course, it won't pass a CA smog test since it won't stay running and the last ones were high on HC but good on everything else, registration is up in late December. Has the normal small block Chevy oil leaks, a tiny seepage of coolant from the restrictor in the heater hose, the rear passenger window needs the plastic rollers replaced but the other windows were fine last time I checked. A/C works on R134 but is not ice cold for polar bears. I never fixed the trip odometer but the regular odometer works fine and shows 183852.7 miles. Trans shifted good but the fluid smells. The option codes are on my project post here http://gmlongroof.4umer.com/t10994-93-california-caprice-5-7l-just-a-little-at-a-time
Looks like the photos I have are too large to host on this site, but I can email them.

I think I saw your car on Craigslist?.... You should post a link to that ad so folks can see the pictures..... That looks like a nice car, just really hard for a buyer to judge value on a car that doesn't run when they can't run and evaluate all the systems.....Lotta miles there too!.......Should sell at that price though... Good Luck!

PostSubject: Same problem with a '95 RMW   Fri Dec 15, 2017 11:12 pm

Wish you knew the problem because my 1995 RMW does the same thing. Engine is strong but something in the fuel supply isn't right. It starts right up and drives fine, but at any point thereafter, it will just stop. Will start right back up, but then stop again. I'm not mechanically inclined and therefore stumped.

I have ZERO experience with LT1 wagons, but you likely are experiencing low fuel pressure caused by 1) Dying fuel pump 2) clogged filter 3)pressure regulator....
All of these wagons are notorious for eating fuel pumps! If you are buying mechanic services, I'd suggest going in with the attitude that the fuel pump is dying and direct the diagnostic path in that direction... If you want to do a DIY first, replace the filter....

The car actually started and ran for 5 minutes last Friday until I finally turned the key off. There was a cold spell here just before that so might have had an effect on the car. I wouldn't trust it to start again or to keep running for any length of time, though. I did put the tranny through forward and reverse and drive it a few feet in the driveway and turned the wheels back and forth just to keep those parts from staying in one position for too long. This wagon is not an LT1, it has the TBI 5.7L engine and the symptoms are classic for a weak fuel pump.

And the ebay auction will be over in 4 1/2 hours. Lots of views and 25 watchers, most likely a few from here. This is one of those auctions that doesn't get bid on until the last few minutes so people don't run the risk of running the bid up if they really want it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/323337196841?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

Yes, those are new photos up until the cracked dashpad. moving the car far enough over to get some driver's side shots wasn't easy by myself.
