1984 starting problems
So I've been trying to get my car started and it's
been a hassle I tried spraying my carbarator and I
don't think that's the problem my biggest concern
is that my car has a manual override lever to open
the gas tank which I have pulled could that be the
reason or would it be somthing else...
Only thing that does is open the fuel door, it is not electronic but just a cable, you could have a fuel pump failure, the inertia switch could be tripped, blown fuel pump fuse, bad fuel pump relay, etc. Try spraying some starter fluid down the intake, if it fires even briefly then it is a fuel delivery problem, if it doesn't, then it is a no spark condition. After that then you what way you need to go .
It turns over and I did spray the carburetor it starts to try then bogs about after 4 sec I feel it might not be delivering gas could u give me some ideas that might be doing that
Fuel pressure and flow tests, you have already confirmed that it has spark, if the flow or the pressures are low then replace the fuel pump and filters.
Okay I'll try that thankyou so much!
