Hi,
Check and clean spark leads, check and clean distributer cap or around coil pack areas.

Most likely cause is a fault around this HT area and distribution of spark.

Use an ignition sealer or buy a new set of HT leads - and replace them in the correct order (do one at a time).

Hope this helps.

Car wont start.went out to crank it this morning it cranked for a second then went dead it has gas.i


It may be the antitheft system.

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 the fuel to your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

You need to rebuild the carburetor is my opinion based on your symptoms. The carb rebuild kit comes with full instructions and you can get it here.

It will not start unless gas pedal held to floor then dies when you take your foot off. Its also revs up high sometimes by itself.


Its sounds like the timings not at its correct setting. You really need to get a mechanic to set the timing correctly this is not a major job.

I have a 83 horizon. it was running fine all day.when to start it , it barely started but will only run if my foot is on the gas to the floor, and the ignition is being held and turned


ignition module went bad ... ignition modules have two circuits ... start and run
sounds like only the start is working. Modules are cheap, Less than $20 most places and you unplug the old and plug in the new

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Sounds like a bad altnator. if the alt. is working propperly it will run the burb. with out the battery installed. With that though, it possiably could of damaged the batt. enough to the point of replacement as well.
