No gas at startup?
Hello! Let's see if a cracker jack mechanic or a person who had a similar problem can help me out with this crazy car. It's a 88 Corsica with 123,000 miles, 2.8 engine. It recently had a complete tuneup (everything except the gas filter). The gas lines under the car are very corroded and would all have to be replaced if they changed the gas filter. Car runs smooth and has reasonable power. Here's the problem. When starting the car after it has been sitting a few hours or more, it starts but sputters like it's not getting gas. After a long 5-10 seconds, it catches and runs like no problem. This situation seems to be getting worse. I don't want to get stuck somewhere on a long Summer trip. Can someone point me in the right direction as to what this problem may be and a ball park estimate for repair? I can't do the trial and error method with this car because I don't want to put alot of money into it at this point.
