94 del Sol wont start


Recommended Posts

(Warning: I am not a mechnanic, I only know what works with my car)

 

If it is a carb engine and it is manual, it may be an issue with it being cold or an issue with the clutch- I know that even with 120 degree weather outside my lude' has to be warmed up if it has set for 6 hours. What I normally do if it has trouble starting (and you may have thought of this) is to put the clutch in (even if the car is in nuetral), put the foot to the floor once. Try to crank it over, if it won't, I put a teeeeeeny bit of gas on and then get it fired up, and rev up to about 1500 for a moment until the car picks up from running like "crap" to running like "not quite as bad as crap."

 

If neither of those issues affect you- I understand some vehicles have a kill switch and won't start unless a certain button or pedal is depressed- some vehicles it is as simple as putting the brake pedal down.

Hopefully you could help me- where in the heck are those bleeding timing marks?! I can't find them to save my life! I have a Chiltons, and it shows a mechanical drawing of where they are- but they don't give a clear description of where they are other than the fact that they are behind the cylinders on the right side of the engine behind a rubber window cover.
