I started my Caprice classic this morning just fine

start. Fuel problem???

Need to check for spark first, if there is spark then it could be a fuel problem. You could look down into the carburetor and work the throttle to see if gas squirts onto the throttle plates. It should be a good stream when working the throttle. If there is then it probably is a spark issue.

Well I notice that my floor mat was curled up on the gas pedal and was possibly flooding it. It started up after I resolved that. Thank god I was only gone for just a moment. But thank you, I took your advice and checked it out and noticed I do need new spark plugs. I have yet to check my carburator out
