Wiring or fuel pump????

Asked by Apr 19, 2018 at 07:35 PM about the 1984 Chevrolet Corvette

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On my 84 Corvette, I replaced the fuel
pump relay and now when I start it, left
side carb fills up with gas. It's like my fuel
pump is staying on. Also battery is drained
every time

1 Answer


Sounds like the needle valve in the carb is stuck open. You probably need to rebuild the carburetor and possibly replace the float.
