If it won't start, then pumping the gas and using carb cleaner may make it worse. Carb cleaner is not the same as starting fluid. It will make the engine harder to start. If it's flooded, then pumping the gas will only flood it more. If you need to de-flood, then press the accelerator pedal ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR and HOLD it there while cranking. Don't pump it.
Have you looked at the top of the carburetor while someone cranks the engine? Does the choke close when you press the accelerator for the first (and only) time? You state that you replaced the choke; do you mean the electric choke spring? Is it adjusted correctly? You need to know the choke setting for it to work properly.
Then again, it may have nothing to do with the choke. Do you have spark at the plugs? Have you checked the fuel filter?

SOURCE: I HAVE A 1985 V8

Unfortunatley it seems that repair procedures required to accomplish engine component removal on your behalf may not be something one would consider doing or find it very difficult to address, and diagnostic procedures seem not possible or at least limited. Providing detailed info that would require mechanical aptitude may also be challenging.
The choke is a very very simple air door on the top of the carburetor, that opens when the engine is at operating temp, and is closed when the engine is cold. Checl the operation of the choke. The choke may not even be the reason and will require repair procedures that will include a voltmeter to measure voltage on different engine components.

I am trying to find a 'Chime Unit' for my Dads 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado Brogham with Headlight Sentinal. The vehicle ran fine but there was a current drain on the battery with the power turned off...


Hi Fiftie4.
I would suggest going to a salvage yard that has a Toronado with the dash still in it and remove the Door Chime Module yourself, pay for it on your way out. They are not gonna take the time to pull a part that might sell for only a few bucks. If you call the salvage yard and ask them if they have the Chime module they will tell you they don't have it because they don't want to be bothered pulling a part that isn't worth the money ( most salvage yards) or their time to pull it. Hope this helps.

Wont start


i have a 91, this happens to me but it says STARTER DISABLED on the display. If the 90 is the same, it is an anti theft feature. On the ignition key there is a black square thing after the teeth of the key. The system needs to recognize the black square to start the car, so if it is warn down you will have this problem. Get a spare made with that special key only some key copier places have it. But on mine if you wait 3 minutes after the message shows up, you can then start it successfully.

Good luck!
