My son has a 91 camaro. Right now it appears that there is no fuel coming into the carb. I called a parts place and they suggested checking the fuel relay. Can anyone tell me where this would be located? Any other advise would be appreciated. Jerry

Most 91's have them on the drivers side of the firewall, between the brake booster and the fender. There should also be a fan and an a/c relay there. If it is the relay, you can swap relays with one of these others for a test.

what would send 12 volts to all these relays? Is this controlled by the ignition switch? I checked the fuses, but does this 12volts go through another relay or device I can check?

I had a problem with mine and cannot for the life of me, remember if it was the fan relay or the fuel pump relay. Anyway, they are powered by the fuse panel under the dash. The wiring goes from the fuse panel, through the firewall connector and then to the relays. On mine, a brown 12v feed from the fuse panel had melted. It took out 1 or 2 other wires. Only thing I can suggest is to get a Helms manual. The wiring diagrams are top notch. The cheaper book have diagrams too, but are a bit lacking in description. I fixed mine with the cheap book but now that I have the Helms, could have fixed it in half the time.
