Customer Question
1991 Camaro RS. Hard...

1991 Camaro RS. Hard to start, dies, shuts off when I throttle.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

All is fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Camaro yourself? What have you tried so far?

Adding octane booster. Seems maybe a fuel problem. Also AC just stopped pumping cold air./

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Hood latch messed up, high beam switch not working, third brake light not working.
