My 88 Camaro died while driving now wont start
My 88 Camaro died while driving now wont start it has done before but always has restarted with jump. It also has
a strong smell of gas also im having a hard time understanding wiring diagram any pictures
ok so.............youre getting fuel..........................getting any spark at the plugs?
well, strong smell of gas could be a fuel leak? They are hard to pin point because of the fact fuel evaporates.
smell is from it flooding with your cranking it alot and it not starting to burn the fuel
the smell of fuel could be a few different things, but if its dying a lot make sure ur battery connections r good, check the alternator...have u gotten a new battery or anything recently? my 84 trans am was having starting problems, so i took it in to get diagnosed and it was my negative feed that was just barely too long for my new battery, so i put a washer in between and now it starts no problem.....before i fixed that i went through about 3 batteries because something in my system was draining every battery i put into it, turns out i was short about 60 cold cranking amps, so make sure u got the right battery too
My 86 did the same thing. I cleaned the battery terminals, ground wire that goes to the frame, and alternatore wire. In the end it was the main positive connected to the starter that needed to be tightened. Now the car starts everytime. Do that and see what happens. Don't buy anything untilled you do. Also remember to charge your battery.
Which diagram do you need?
