Question about 1986 Chevrolet Chevette

1 Answer

My 87 chevette wont fire up.

My chevette was missing for the whole year I have had it. If it stalls, I just start it back up and give it some gas. Now the engine will turn over, but It will not start. I even sprayed starting fluid in the carb and it won't even make a difference. When I turn it over, it will sometimes make a popping sound. Can anyone help??

You probably have bad timing my friend, check your base timing w/ a timing light, you might need to disconnect the main wire harness to your ecu.
pull a spark plug wire and ground to body and see if your getting spark first..
let me know..

Engine acted like it was going to stall, then tachometer(rpm) and speedometer jumped up high, gas gauge dropped to empty level though there was half tank of gas acted like it wasn't getting gas pumped gas...


Ignition or fuel problem probably . When you turn the key to start does the engine spin ? Crank no start or nothing happens NO CRANK - NO START ?
If the engine spins an does not start an run you need to test to see what's missing Spark or fuel . Pull a spark plug wire off a spark plug an stick a screw driver in the end an hold it near ground (metal) and have someone try to start the vehicle ! Is there spark ? Spray starting fluid into the engine , does it start then ?
Videos on youtube showing how to do these tests

What is the proper timing on a 1978 Chevrolet Chevette?


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.

This is an idea not a for sure. Bad or worn valves can cause what you describe. Had something similar happen to an 2004 Toyota. Due to bad lubrication, crazy huh?
