83 Cutlass Supreme

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 83 Cutlass cut off yesterday when I made a left
turn and cannot get it restarted. The night before
when I made a left turn it sputtered like it wanted
to cut off.  This is the 1st two instances I've had
like this. Can anyone please help or give me a clue
as to whatnit may be? Thanks

Rebuild that 33 year old carburetor.

Let me add some details... once it cut off and we started trying to find the problem we realized there is no power other than headlights. No dome light, no horn, no dash lights.


Then begin by checking all connection first battery terminals, clean tight? follow through make sure nothing is corroded the grounds for example, If all these seem Ok, then you need a multimeter to do a voltage drop test on the stater circuit. Bad or high resistance wire hiding somewhere.

Thank you so much
