Question about 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
My car started just fine and I drove 25miles then I turned the car off for about 2 hours. I got back in the car and it started up fine again and I drove about 1 mile then it just turned off and it would not start back up at all. **I thought I ran out of gas but that was not the problem. The car is cranking but just won't start up.
1.Battery is charged (radio and everything electric works)
2.Car has quarter tank of gas
3.Once key is turned to ON position you can hear the fuel pump kick on
What else could be the problem?
I would verify fuel pressure , even though you here the pump.Then i would check for a well defined (blueish) spark to the spark plugs..Good Luck...

CHECK your Distributor....Or have YOur alternator,starter,and battery professionaly tested at your local pepboys...If you bring in your parts on hand its free....if you bring in you vehicle then it starts....

sounds to me like your coil packed it in or your timing belt ( chain ) has jumped a tooth. If you have access to a scanner run a diagnostic check on your car to see if it comes up with any trouble codes.

If you do not have the original key, you can take the vin number and proof of ownership and the dealer should be able to help you. If not you will have to have it towed to a chevy dealer. The chips can be read, but if you do not have the chip they they have to determine what chip the car us using.
Hope this helps.
