More than likely it's the distributor. They have a tendency to build up corrosion and rust and have personally went through the same situation three weeks ago on a suburban. Check to see if you are getting spark from the distributor first. Have the ecm in the distributor checked at Oriellys for free. It's under the rotor and has two 8mm head bolts with wires plugged in at each end.

There are so many things that could have caused this problem to occur. Here are some of my suggestions:

1. Blockage in the air supply to mix with the fuel. Throttle body might need cleaning

2. Compression in the cylinders might be low, probably due to large ring gaps. If you can get your hands on a compression tester to check the compression values of each cylinder, so as to ensure they are in operable range. By the way, was the vehicle smoking heavily when in operation?

3. Is your battery giving a good turn over of the engine? A weak battery can cause an engine not to start. The engine would turn over but just won't start. (Is the engine turning over when you try starting, or does the engine not responding when turning the key?)

4. Igniter in the distributor might need electrical checks to ensure proper electrical circuitry. Liaise with an auto-electrican about this.

There is a relay mounted way up under the dash on the driver side. It is about 1"x1"x2" and it says Mitsuba on it. This is the PGMFI relay, sometimes called the main relay or fuel injection relay. It is very likely the problem. You can buy another one, or there was a bulletin on how to repair it. You need to take it out, pop the cover off, and resolder the cracked solder joints on the pc board that the relays are mounted on. Really not that hard if you have a little soldering experience. If not, just buy another one, about 50 bucks.cb28323.jpg

My 1985 Olds cutlass won't start and the engine keeps flooding. I get a strong oudour of gas as well.


Every time you try to start it, it dumps fuel. Pull a plug wire and check for spark. If you have spark. replace the plugs, they are fouled out. If no spark, look at the crank sensor, ignition module, coil, cap and rotor. You will still need to replace the plugs..

Well, you know the ignition coil has to be good. then the ignition control module inside the distributor has to be good. It controls the ignition coil firing times. This module can be tested at a parts store. And then, also in the distributor and attached to the ICM is the pick-up coil which tells the computer crankshaft position, so the computer knows when to signal the Ignition Control Module that it is to cause spark out of the coil. These are the components of the ignition system, so you know how to check them. Ignition coil, ICM, pick-up coil, and the pcm, computer.

First, check that power is getting to the coil when the key is turned to on. The coil must have battery voltage applied to it before it can cause spark. If there is power there, test the ignition coil, test the ICM, then the pick-up coil. If your wiring is good, one of them components may have failed. And of course, the last thing to suspect is the computer, the pcm. Hope you don't have to get that far.

How to remove distributor on 1984 monte carlo 305 v8


bring engine to top dead center #1 with the timing marks. remove distributer cap and note position of rotor direction and mark on the distributor housing were the rotor is pointing. also mark the position of the distributor mark to a position on the motor, then unbolt the distributor holding bolt and remove. pull up on the distributor and note which way the rotor moves as you pull the distributor out. again mark where the rotor is pointing when the distributor is out. the reason for the marking of rotor position and distributor position is so when you reassemble you line up the marks to get it into the proper position when the distributor is back in place. then you have to check the timing and set. as far as the pickup coil remove the distributor gear lock pin remove the gear and remove the distributor shaft to replace the coil. reassemble in reverse order.

Car turns over but i'm getting no spark what could cause that or how do i fix that so i get spark


Start with the ignition coil. It should have power to it with key on. Should be battery voltage on the primary circuit to the coil-that's the coil positive terminal. If the coil is good, it could be a bad ignition module-the module cuts primary current to the coil when commanded by the engine computer.
It could be several things-fouled plugs, bad plug wires, cracked distributor cap, bad rotor, crank sensor or pick up coil (inside the distributor), pcm. Test the ignition coil, or try a known good coil.

1984 olds cutlass supreme brougham. Drives good until operating temp is reached. It starts to cut out. Changed plugs,wires,cap,rotor. Checked timing. Still cuts out. No smoke from exhaust. Changed fuel...


I would be suspecting a faulty condenser and coil as when they reach operating temperature they start to break down electrically.. Check that the auto choke is coming off and not tending to over fuel the engine

Acts like it will start and will not turn over.Has fire going in distrubuter but not out


Hi Friend:

#1) Check your Distributor Cap and Rotor,Cap could be Cracked or Damaged also Rotor.

#2) Since you have 4-coils its possible that 1-or more coils are Damaged,Test each one Individually,to make sure its not a Coil.

#3) Next if All checks out on #1 and #2 ,Then it sounds like your Ignition Control Module Or your Coil Pick-up, Start with your Control Module 1st. Is only held by a couple screws and wire connectors.

#4) Your pick up coil is located below your Distributor cap,The Distributor must be removed to replace it.

#5) If your distributor cap is not Cracked or Terminals Burn't or Carbon Deposits,I would Go Ahead and Replace the Control Module,its only like 30-35.00

This will help you solve your problem, Please let me know how you come out.

Thank You for using FixYa From: d_hubbs

Changed distributor cap now car will not crank


You should check to make sure that the rotor button is in place. Also check the coil wire and the fire orderr to make sure that no wires are crossed. These are pretty much the only reasons why your car won't crank with the distributor cap change.

1991 olds cutlass calais - will not start - no fire to spark plugs - is there a rotor or coil?


depends on the engine. most of these cars are computer controlled and use crankshaft and camshaft sensors to properly send timing and fire info to allow the car to start and run. Coils in these engine are usually a pack bolted on the left side of engine (sparkplugs will feed from them to the sparkplugs.

Crankshaft and Camshaft sensor for GM are usually mounted at the harmonic ballancer, the sensor have three to four wires in them check for old rubbery wire and broken insulation first, if alot of oil or antifreeze is on the wire it will break down the plastic covering. If wire is bad replace the wire. If wire is good then change the sensors and all should be good.
