1980 camaro

Asked by Jun 28, 2009 at 10:58 PM about the 1980 Chevrolet Camaro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1980 camaro 350 4 speed. it starts very nice. After I drive it awhile (15-30 minutes) if I shut it down it won't start until it sits for 30 minutes or more. When I go to start the car I get nothing, no clicking from the starter, nothing. I have good battery power. Any thoughts

i will almost bet anything that it's you're starter. i had a 1983 oldmobile with the exact same problem and a new starter fix that problem quick, fast, and in a hurry.

I would almost guarentee that it is your sylenoid... have that tested and it should solve your problems.. should also clean your ground wire's at the same time on your battery. Andrew

I was going to say the same thing....Check connections. I had a similar problem with my Monte Carlo SS and got a new battery. I discovered the wires wer not connected right. Reconnected everything cleanly and its fine.

yeah the selonoid is a good call, i didn't think of that. but then again i couldn't find a damn selonoid in for the backwards starters of the ever clever oldsmobile designers! i would try the selonoid first, they're a good thirty bucks cheaper than a new starter.

yeah... i'd do the starter solonoid first. if it still persists, i'd check the ignition switch module that runs down inside the steering column to the under the dash. i forgot the exact name but it quit on me at 150k miles same conditions..
