Chevette hard starting
Just bought a 84 chevette with the 1.6. Evan on the coldest winter days the car will start right up, but for example if I parked the car at the store for 20 min and come back out it takes at least 5 min for the car to finally start, ether does nothing to help, telling me it is not a fuel issue. My thoughts are that a component is getting heat soaked? looking for help on any suggestions, hoping that this may be a common issue.
Had the same problem with a '78. Wound up being something with the carburetor but for years, would be stuck unless I waited 5 minutes.
The owners manual says to apply 1/2 throttle when starting hot. I generally give mine 3 slow pumps then half throttle. Works every time. Remember this is carboration no
Not fuel injection. And mechanical fuel pump.
