My daughter has a 98' camaro with a 3800 V-6 . It is having hard start issues when hot .It would also sputter and lose power over 3000 rpms . I pulled the fuel pump , which was loud , and found the main rubber line kinked . I repaired this and the car ran great for 3 weeks . This is an aftermarket type pump with rubber hose and hose clamps not the factory type with plastic hose and snap on fitting . The car is beginning to repeat the same problems and have starting problems . The pump is getting loud again . If you try and start the car and let off the key when it first fires it will eventually "catch up" and run ok . Other wise you have to stop and cycle the key completely off and retry . I am also having a hard time finding a pump assembly to replace the one in it . The factory replacement type pumps seem very expensive . My 2002 Trans Am LS1 does the same thing when it's hot just not near this bad . The T/A will cranks and crank , but fire when i let off the key . Any help i can get would be great .
