You must need to charge balance. Run the scanner /computer and the system will indicate if you have some electrical overload in the system and fix it.
God bless you

SOURCE: line up timing marks on a 1980 chevy chevette, I

To be perfectly sure where the number 1 cylinder fire is at this point remove the valve cover, remove the #1 spark plug, remove the distributor cap, clean the crank to identify clearly the crankshaft marking on the crankshaft harmonic balancer wheel.
First step: Slowly turn the crank by hand until the line on the crank lines up to the zero timing mark...if you are on #1 the rotor in the distributor should be facing the #1 segmant in the distrbutor caps firing sequence, to verify further both intake and exhaust valve rocker arms should be in the valve closed positions in the #1 cylinder, the piston should be all the way to the top opf dead center(carefully insert a long skinny screw driver into the #1 spark plug hole to feel the pistons top travel while being sure the valves are both closed as explained above).
With all that checking out you are now exactly on top dead center in the #1 firing order sequence of your valve timing.

SOURCE: What is the proper timing on a 1978 Chevrolet

My Motor book gives no timing for your engine that year, which suggests that it is preset. However that size engine ( should be a 97 cu. in. or 1600cc) for the 2 years before shows 8 degrees before TDC for a manual trans and 10 for an automatic. Hope this helps.

    How do I remove and replace the fuel pump on a 1978 Chevette?


    Hi Dan,I use to have a couple of Chevettes,great on gas,Here's a link on your fuel pump removal,never had a issue with that,on these,you have to change the timing belt every 3 years ,the belt will stretch and jump time and the plugs will get fouled,here's another link on your timing belt if the fuel pump replacement doesn't work,also check your spark plugs.

    Have a Hitachi l155 alternator from an '82 chev chevette diesel (isuzu) - just looking for info for where to apply power or ground to the 3 wire pigtail connector that comes out of it. The alternator is...


    should have 1 large red wire, 1 small red wire and 1 small white wire. the large and small red wires go to battery hot all the time and the white wire will go to ignition hot. (note): if car wont shut off after running you will need to install a 30amp diode on the white wire.

    New master cylinder and still no pedal.


    get a new mechanic. 66 charger is right about brake lines ,also wheel cylinders can leak air in but still hold fluid in same for calipers. also check proportioning valve. My ? is are you bleeding it out? You also need to bench bleed the master before installing it.
