The key switch by the steering wheel pushes a rod down the top of the steering column to the ignition switch ! The key switch as well as the rod could be coming back as it is spring loaded, but the ignition switch can be sticking in the start position ! First check to see that the key switch is springing back all the way to the on position. If that is working ok, it has to be the ignition switch, provided the Bendix gears on the starter are not excessively worn & sticking into the flywheel gears ! I hope that helps,God bless !!!

When you reinstall the starter,check for power at the purple wire at the starter wiring before you install that wire.(which goes to the small connection closest to the engine block)only when the key is in the starting position.If the purple wire has power all the time....it may be time for a new ignition switch which is not at the key but down on the steering column above your feet.1976 was a great year for Chev/GMC trucks!

If the starter and solenoid is good and not hanging up I would check the Ignition switch to make sure it is releasing back after turning it to the start position. Be sure key is not sticking.

You have hooked up a manual test gauge to the oil pressure sensor/sender port and verified you have no pressure? Did you prime the oil pump before you starter the engine?

OK I have a 1976 Chevy C20 pickup with a 350 I just rebuilt the motor and now it won't idle on it's own and I have no power in 3rd gear can anyone help me


check for vacuum leak for the idle or idle mixture screws settings
no power in 3rd gear can be low fuel level, filter problems , ignition timing ( static is 12 degrees BTDC idle )
more than likely a vacuum hose missing after assembly

I have a 1976 Chevy c20 pickup I am wondering if a intake manifold or a blown headgasket will make my not idol or run well can anyone help please


The simple answer is yes! To both! A blown head gasket will cause a lack of compression and either a black or white exhaust emmision. Improper intake manifold seal will cause rough idle or high idle.

Hi I'm back I have 1976 Chevy C20 pickup I was wondering if anyone knows what transmission came in it thanks


There are a few internet forums that specialize in 60's and 70's Chevy cars and trucks. I would sign up to one of these and pose your question there with all the details you have on the vehicle including those details on the build plate in the engine bay if it has a plate. I'm sure one of the guys there can tell you if you give them all the details you have on the vehicle.

My 2005 Chrysler Pacifica automatically dies as soon as I shut the car off, but will start once jumped, it has a new battery....what is the problem?


Can be loose battery connection,or weak starter motor/solenoid.Sometimes new battery even comes weak/faulty.Get the battery bench tested at local car garage.

It can be the issue with weak battery or faulty battery or if battery is ok,then its faulty starter causing the issue.

Starter engauged and then it stopped all of a sudden took it off and checked it works fine then same thing


Can you rotate your engine by hand? Make sure you take the serpentine belt off first. If you can't reotate the engine with a socket wrench your starter won't be able to either.

If you can rotate it, then you might have a bad place in the starter winding that only shows up when under load, which most places can test on the bench.
