My dad has a 92 Caprice with a v8 in it. I couldn't tell the liters. It also has an automatic transmission. I went to start it to move it today and it cranked and cranked almost like it was empty on gas. It kept making the sound as if it was beginning to start and then it slows back down to just cranking and cranking. I'm thinking something fuel related. If it would help I can make a video of the car while I'm trying to start it so eeryone can hear it.

the vehicle has a no run condition but cranks normally. first is check for fuel pressure. check that the fuel pump turns on the first 2 sec.

is the key with a security pellet in it . if so it could mean that the antithieft OEM system is preventing the fuel pump and ignition to work.

put a small amount of fuel into the intake to see if it runs at all .

when cranking see if you can see a spark from the plug wire.

do you get any serurity lights or other lights coming on ?

when was the vehicle last used ? was it sitting around for a while that the fuel could be bad like a few months ?

place a battery charger on it . also crank 10 sec. then wait 2 min for starter to cool off. longer if you do this a few times.
