camaro dies after it warms up

My 89 iroc was stored for 2 years-took it out and it started shaking during idle. Then it would barely run and then shut down-Replaced fuel pump and filter. Ran fine for 15 minutes-then died. Was told i have three bad injectors. Could that be causing the problem? Any advise would be appreciated

That blows, maybe they just need to be cleaned. The little filters in them can clog up or dry out fall apart and generally cause disaster. Or just replace them and be done with it.

Who told you that you have 3 bad injectors? How do they know? If the car sat for 2 years there is a good chance that the injectors are dirty/clogged....but did anyone test them??? You can also check the resistance. Anything less than 11 is indicative of coil failure which means the injectors need to be replaced.

Re: camaro dies after it warms up

Might also try the ignition module inside the distributor - could have accumulated rust on it when sitting, and thus gets hot and fails.
