SOURCE: 1988 Corvette Hot Start problem

well there are a few things that can cause this and Im sure you have tried most but I will run down my normal list first fuel vapor lock is still a problem on high performance cars in the 80s try cycling the key 3 or 4 times from off to on pausing briefly between each cycle to push fuel through the lines if that does work check the location of the fuel line on the front of the block of it is touching there is your problem ok if that doesnt work coil saturation meaning the heat is actually causing it not to fire next would be the the distributor first cap and rotor wires breakdown plugs even do not use platinum or iridium plugs in anything that old even if you think its in great shape one speck of oil it wont fire through it then you have the electronic module in the distributor most chain parts stores can test them for you for free hell most are cheap for the older cars good luck and if you need clarification or more help let me know Danny

You may have a ******** battery. It seems as if it has a dead cell, which causes a short, and takes all the power. You will need to have it checked out by either an Auto Electrician, or a battery retailer. If that's not the problem, get back to me.

This is one of the most time consuming problems a car can have. There is so many things it can be but you need patients and a multi meter to check what is using power when the key is off. I usualy start at the fuse box and see what is drawing power. That will narrow it down quite a bit but from there on its teadious work. The first things I look for are trunk, hood, vanity mirror, and dome lights that are not shutting off when they should. The second is checking for any aftermarket accessories someone might have installed and not wired right or didnt run the wires properly. From there i do a positive to ground continuity test with the battery disconnected. That will tell you for sure if its a short. Good luck and if you still need help let me know.

1987 corvette i want to take off the air pump but i dont know what size serpentine belt without the pump.


Take the old belt off. Use a peice of string in place of belt minus the air pump. Just put it tight enough so the tensionor is is roughly the same spot. Now you have what size it would be. Tie it and take it to the auto parts store. Start sizing up
