Make sure spark plugs and wires been replaced.replace distributor cap and rotor.replace fuel filter in the carburetor in let nut to fuel line.also check carburetor automatic choke plate make it closed during start up and open as engine warm up.but the choke need to closed when you first start engine up in the morning. i had same car years back you had to pump accelerator pedal twice then start engine. had be careful easy flood out carb engines.

SOURCE: ignition switch replacement 1983 monte carlo

you have to take off the steering wheel.if you dont have the right tools to do so i would not attempt it.the turn signal switch has to be moved it just pulls over the end of the column.then there is a torx head screw at about 1 oclock in the column that has to be removed.and the ign.just pulls out.the dimmer switch is kinda tricky.a locksmith usually dont charge to much to do this job.it would probably cost you more to buy the tools you need to do it yourself

SOURCE: while driving my car lost power and then died. wont re-start

Hey first thing you want to do is make sure its getting fuel .. Try shooting a little gas into the air cleaner and crank it and see if it starts .. if it does your fuel pump might be the problem .. or use a little either instead of gas either will let you know if its a fuel problem .. sounds like to me that might be what it is. holler if you need more and thanks Jerry

1978 monte carlo would not start until i blowed air back toward gas tank.. starts but wont stay cranked,,,,run rough and wont idle,,then shuts off. changed sparkplugs and wires..took off distributor and...


Sounds like vapor lock in the gas tank. I would try replacing the gas cap before doing anything else.

Sometimes the only solution is the easiest and last thing you try.

Wont keep idle, car stalls out


I had this same problem on my 2005 monte carlo, took mechanic a while to figure out it was the idle air control valve. They also replace the idle air control motor.

My car was doing the same thing. It would stall out while idling or even turning a corner. I ended up replacing a few sensors but the problem was the fuel injector pressure regulator. The check engine light never came on. It was leaking fuel through the vacuum side of the diaphragm. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the pressure regulator and if there are any traces of gasoline it needs to be replaced.
