    What about the fuel pump relay, have you changed that?

Have you changed the fuel pressure regulator on the driver's side fuel rail? How much fuel pressure do you have? Mine runs at about 45 psi.

NEVER use either!! EVER! It burns very dry and can destroy a gas engine! Just give it a bit of gas down the intake.But keep the can away after each try! Far away! Not sure how you are getting 32v?? That can't be volts! Silly question, but is there fuel in the tank?? Have seen this before! It would be great to learn how this all started?? [or should i say stopped] lol Check the fuel line for a pin hole. It sounds like it is sucking air. Really need a bit more info. OK Frankster016

    With an ohm meter check that the fuel tank has a ground[frame to tank] You will hear the pump run, so there is no need to even turn the engine over until you have this sorted out! Frankster016

1985 corvette cranks but won't start, fuel pressure good, oil is good also, it doesn't seem to be geeting any fuel. New fuel pump, filter & gas. Is there a security aystem problem?


Check to see if you have spark, if you do, and still it does not start, then you may think that fuel is not getting to it. At this point, use some starting fluid and spray it at the throttle opening. That should start it for a few seconds and give you the answer.

85 corvette wont start


I had the exact same problem with mine. After replacing nearly everything i took it to a shop today to learn that I had a bad wire on the back of the distributor and the new fuel pump i installed from autozone was faulty and not providing enough pressure.

poss. is fuel pressure reg. problem. put a guage on the test port and check press. should be above 35psi. see if it stays running when you spray choke cleaner in the pcv valve steadily while starting. if the engine stays running after a few seconds of running on choke cleaner then probably a bad fuel pump relay cause the oil pressure switch will keep the pump on without the relay when it has good oil pressure.
let me know if ya can do this or if it helps.
