Re: 1989 GTA won't start. Help!!!

I had no start/no run issues with my 1989 GTA a few years ago. Replacing the fuel pump solved the problem (A PITA to replace, BTW). I would get fuel pressure, but it would come up very slowly. Jumps right up to the mid 40's PSI after replacement. Your issue sounds fuel related as it runs momentarily on starting fluid, except that you have fuel pressure. Curious. A link to an article I found is worth reading, even though not specific to your problem. It points out the value of a code reader over the paper clip method to give a more accurate diagnosis. Good luck and report back!
