Question about 1980 Cadillac Deville
My Cadillac is turning over but is not getting fuel when I try to give it gas, there is gas in the tank and I know that I should be able to add starter fuel or something somewhere to get it to start, but I dont know where, does anyone have any ideas?
If it is a 1980 Caddy it either has a carburetor or throttle-body fuel injection( V864, if it's fuel injected you might need a new fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator ) and you can remove the aircleaner lid and pour a little gas down the carb (hold the choke plate open with a screw driver placed between choke plate and carb air horn) or throttle-body. It might take a few tries before the fuel pump fills the float bowl up on the carb for it to keep running. If the cars has really old stale gas in the tank you might need to drain it and refill with fresh gas. Change the fuel filter and add a can of fuel injector-carb cleaner to the gas tank.
