I would start with a tune up. Put a set a sparkplugs at least and crank it.

Wont start

simpler that exposing the throttle body just depress the accelerator 3/4 and try to start.

If like before, the vehicle starts... watch the rear view mirror for black smoke

Bonneville still wont start any other ideas going to drain all liqiuds and put new fluids in then go from there if anyone lives around sun prairie wi please lend a helping hand whatelse should i do

First off, don't bother with the liquids draining. The only liquid that makes any difference is the fuel. Your car will still run with no oil, antifreeze, etc. What you need to do is to troubleshoot this. This car has a carburetor, so it is easy. Take the air cleaner off, and look in the top of the carburetor while pulling on the throttle linkage. You should see a squirt of gas inside the carburetor. If you don't, then you aren't getting gas, and you need to check your fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel lines, in that order. If you do, then you aren't getting spark. If this is the case, you will have to first test to see if the distributer has power to it when the ignition switch is turned on. If not, run power from the battery to the distributer and try it. If it doesn't run then, you have to dig into the distributer. Take the cap off. Do you see anything that looks burnt, broken wires, rotor broken, anything like that? If so, replace it. There may be a rusty colored deposit on everything; that's ok. If you still haven't found the problem, it is likely either the coil, which is in the distributer cap, or it is the regulator inside the distributer. Either can be replaced easily and cheaply. Hope this helped get your pontiac on the road.

Wont start

If it sat for two years, you probably have varnish and gum buildup in the carb. You'll need to take the bowl off the carb and clean it with carb cleaner. You'll also need to spray the cleaner around the linkages and the jets inside. Be very careful taking apart the carb so you don't lose the float needle.

1991 Corsica dies after being put in gear.


You need to get two things checked. Ignition and Fuel.

Ignition: typically in this order ... Start off from sparking plugs ,,, move to leads (get them changed) and on to the ignition coil if there is no spark coming out of it. In case of fuel, the carb needs a clean and a good carb cleaner or fuel treatment (added to the fuel tank) wont do any harm. You should open up the carb filter. Remove it and change it if its dirty. Start the engine rev it up and while its revved up (throttle flap open) spray the carb cleaner or in this will clean the carb cleaner from inside. If the power gradually increases its a clear sign that you need to open up the carb and get the jets cleaned. properly.

Hope that this fixya will get you on the roads soon :)

Regards :)
