Check the choke in the carb, might stay stuck in the open position when engine cools down. After the engine is cold, check and see if the choke is closed, if not close it by hand, and see if that works.

86 4.3 4BC 1500 Chevy Die rolling up to light Started up and ch of fuel and it died 3 times now no start smell fuel and quit yellow spark Have replaced cap rotor plugs wires EGR coil ECM Rebuilt carb


It sounds more like a fuel problem to me then a bad coil or spark ign the spark should be blue but its hard to see in daylight
You say you rebuilt the carb are you sure your main mixture jets are at least 2 to 3 turns out off the stops .
Try pouring fuel down the barrel fill the float bowl if it runs then dies its fuel don't let it catch unfire you should have 45 sec. of run time then adjust the the mixture screws 2 turns is base but when its is running good turn them in 1 at a time and give it 30 sec. to adjust until it starts to stumble then back it out a 1/4 two 1/2 turn then repeat on bank 2

Let me explain again, I have a 1988 honda prelude with a carburator and its leaking from some where around the carb. also the idle on the car is not proper. I've put new fuel pump, new filters, new...


some of your new parts might be manufacture defected because the manufacture does not test every part coming from the lines. ANother thing have you checked the timing out with a timing gun to see if the timing is ok ? ANother also did you replace the new dist. cap and button in the right place of the old one was at ? Sometimes when you change some things with your car that you also have to check for timing issues because where and how you put the dist. cap and button at if not the way of the old one was. It could be off alittle bit to make this happen.

Not getting fire to plug wires. I have replaced coil pack, module, dist pickup,and cap. I have tested and have fire to dist but nothing coming out. This is an 86 2.8 comanche 4x4 w/ 4 barrel Holley carb...


You have spark on the coil wire but not coming from the cap. You replaced the cap right. Did you replace the rotor too. Sometimes the rotor burn in the center and the spark goes right thru it in to the distributor shaft.

1/ Have you fitted the spark plug leads in the proper firing order.
2/ Look inside the top of distributor Top (this is not the first time a new distributer cap has very small crack) or the rotor arm is fitting the cap properly. Hope this helps Best Wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

I am trying to start my 1980 gm 350 in my boat. engine will turn and have new fuel and filters. Pulled off coil wire and got spark, grounded a spark plug to the manifold and got spark. What could it be?...


definitely a fuel issue. be sure to check that the distributor isnt 180 degrees off. you say it'll start when you pour some fuel into the carb, it sounds like you arent getting enough fuel then. try adjusting the float level higher so that more fuel will be pumped through. and how old is the carb? has it been rebuilt recently? make sure the jets are clean and adjusted properly. make sure none of the mixture screws are bottomed out. it sounds like it's all the quadrajet's fault on this one!

1983 F250 will crank but not start


timing may be way off, distributor rotor may not be pointing at no. 1 distributor cap contactor when no. 1 piston is at top dead center. Also, confirm your spark plug wiring order on dist. cap is correct.

Not starting


your cam to crank timing is wrong...recheck it.  Or your spark plug wires are in the wrong places
