Question about 1985 Chevrolet Corvette

1 Answer

My 1985 vette always starts with a touch of the key, even after sitting for weeks. Problem: as soon as engine starts there is a very,very,loud rattling noise, bad enough to get the attention of other people standing near by. Sounds like it could be from the exhaust system or a sheet metal sound ?? Only happens on a cold start.

1985 ford f150 starts, but dies if gas pedal is not pressed, no problem starting, but as soon as I put in neutral it dies . . . tries to keep running but dies


Could be as simple as a vacuum leak from old hoses.
The carb WILL become DAMAGED from ethanol fuel.
DO NOT use that in a vehicle that sits.
Some premium gas has no ethanol,find it and use only it.
A good engine an worth spending a little money on.

1985 vette starts and runs great untill you shut it off and try to start it again...i have to wait 15 - 20 minutes before it will start again, whats this all about???


when it won't start do u hear the hum of the in tank electric fuel pump when the key is tured to run, it will only hum for 1 sencond, so turning it back off and to run repeated times helps to hear the pump.

1996 vette has new battery running fine and now wont start


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

1992 vette wont start for about 20 minutes


I have seen this alot on the 90 ish vettes and it is going to be something to do with the security. When you have time I would just take it to the dealership so they can scan it and find out which part is bad and loosing memory.

Stalls out about every 10 miles or so,let sit bout 5min,restarts


have you changed the plugs and leads, if you don't know the last time it was started there is a few things you need to take into account, engine oil and spark plugs fuel filter even the fuel in the tank empty and replace, coil and the points ( if upgraded there is no coil and points as been converted) you would also need to clean out the carburetor as old fuel drying can block or limit fuel entering the engine. change air filter. even standing an engine for a year or 2 these parts can degrade as they have not been used. also change the water and flush the system and refill with coolant/antifreeze.

1985 BMW 325e will not start


rcaf arrow: The clicking sound id probably your starter solenoid. Tis solenoid is actually a relay that connects your starter to the battery so the starter can turn the engine over to get it started.
Try knocking the starter with a hammer, (not real hard, just kinda medium) and see if that makes a difference  I suspect your starter is going bad.
Any indication of prior problems with starting?????
