Question about 1984 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

2 Answers

84 chevy monte carlo - Car has sat for a year, but was running fine before parked. Car will turn over & crank with fuel put directly in carburetor. I have changed the fuel pump, filter, and all gas, but still won't crank. What do I check now?

    Check the fuel supply lines and make sure there are no holes and you are getting pressure at the carb end of the fuel line. Carb or injection?

Glad It helped. Most people forget the pump on carb cars pulls fuel up to the engine. Often when a line leaks it draws air in. On an injected engine, it would have been a no brainer because it would have been squirting everywhere!!!
Good luck!

Is it possible to bypass the ignition switch on a 1995 MonteCarlo

It could be the key. It has a Pass lock system with the chip in the key. Have the chevy dealer service department check the key for resistance. You cannot use a "copy" key cut at the hardware store. If you get a replacement key from the dealer the car might crank and start.

Chevy monte carlo won't start????

sounds to me like your coil packed it in or your timing belt ( chain ) has jumped a tooth. If you have access to a scanner run a diagnostic check on your car to see if it comes up with any trouble codes.
