Question about 1987 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

Won't start. Have I missed something?

I have a jag "LUMP" that was running when parked a couple years ago. It has (I think) Chevy 350 tuned port. I have drained the fuel tank, cleaned (sump) fuel tank and strainer, replaced fuel filter and pump. Replaced spark plugs and distributor cap. Verified plug wires on right, and dist cap in correct position. Measured fuel pressure at engine at 40psi. Checked injectors with noid light. Just won't start. I am at a loss for things to check...

Your throttle position sensor should be located on the throttle body opposite of where the throttle cable hooks on too. Look for a small black box on the other side with wires leading into a connector. get your codes read and re post them it could be a simple fix.

I had the same problem after it sitting over the winter. I changed the fuel filter and added water remover to my gas and let it sit over night for the water remover to work and the next day it ran fine.

Hi Did complete tune-up, replaced coil, turns over but won't run. Is there something else I;m missing before I spend more money and have still the same problem not starting?

Was the engine running before you did the tune-up ?
The ignition system consists of the distributor and spark ignitor in addition to the plugs and coil.
Are you not getting spark to the plugs ?

Xjs jaguar wont start but there is fuel and spark

It was sitting for nine years? Normal cars I would tell you that things are probably gummed up and need to be cleaned and replaced. the time and the frustration and have a professional tune this one up and get it running. I say this as a do it yourselfer. If you want to tackle this yourself just take your time and be methodical about everything you do. Not as forgiving of a vehicle.

Transmission won't shift out of 1st and service engine light comes on. goes in reverse and park. goes in drive , just will not shift.

Hi Cindy, As the engine check light is coming it is indicating a problem. Have a diagnostic scan carried out and let your technician determine the actual fault. It could be something to do with the state of engine tune or a defective speed sensor, but may also be a problem with the gearbox. Regards John

1997 gmc sierra 3500 won't start

When you turn the ignition to start, do you hear the starter turning and the solenoid engaging the flywheel ? test your starter by jumping it and see if the engine turns over. If this works, then you might consider in checking fuel pressure. Do you have any codes in your ECM ?

Have a 1986 F350 4wd crew cab with a 460 , A couple months ago I replaced the coil , plugs roter and cap it was running great . This afternoon I tried to start her up it cranks but won't start .

So start by checking for spark and fuel. If no spark or fuel you will need to troubleshoot that system further but before we can do that you need to verify if you have both of those.

Chevy 350 runs really hot... i have an 81 cutlass with a stock chevy 350 & for some reason it bogs down like it wants to turn off & gets really hot when im parked idleing for more than 10 minutes...

there must be something restricting the water flow. i would check the houses to make sure there are no sharp turns that dont need to be there. next i would upgrade the water pump to make up for the extra hp.
flushing the block is always a good idea too when adding hp because you never know whats inthere.

Chevy 350 express van 2000 runs great idles rough

If it does not do it in park or neutral, it could be a number of things. One being a sticking Torque Converter Clutch solenoid (TCC). It could be that it needs a simple tune-up. How often does this problem happen?
