I know you say your timing seems fine but there is not too much that can cause this to happen with theses older car. My first thought was the timing chain might have jumped a tooth causing your cam timing to be off. This is like the only thing I have seen cause this problem with a 305 or 350 I would be checking the timing marks under the water pump to make sure it did not jump they are super easy to get to on theses cars.

Sounds like vapor lock in the gas tank. I would try replacing the gas cap before doing anything else.

Sometimes the only solution is the easiest and last thing you try.

I have an 86 monte carlo 4.3 efi,,,the car didnt want to start wich i believed were fuel problems.i replaced fuel filter and checked fuel lines to see if clooged.checked out ok so i talked to a mechanic...


The fuel pump is bad, the electric motor was stuck in a bad position & when you hit the bottom of the tank it made the rotor turn to good spot which allowed you to drive. But make no mistake, the fuel pump is bad!

I had this same problem on my 2005 monte carlo, took mechanic a while to figure out it was the idle air control valve. They also replace the idle air control motor.
