Starting trouble- 1979 Cordoba

Postby Brenda65 » Tue Aug 09, 2011 5:45 pm


I acquired a hand me down 1979 Chrysler Cordoba 2 years ago from my great uncle. My car skills are limited, however I use this car daily as I am single and on a very limited income and need it to last me awhile. Recently, I have been having a really difficult time getting it started, especially when cold. I have paid for a tune up, new battery, fuel pump and am still having problems. I go through the ritual of pumping the gas pedal before turning it over and while turning it over with various results, sometimes it starts and sometimes it’s a long ordeal to get it started. I do find though that really the only way it is going to start now is if I am really pumping the gas pedal with aggression for some reason. It never required that much before, so I am at a loss??

Any help is most appreciated.
