I have a 1980 Chevy El Camino 350 Engine I tried to start the car the other day And nothing cleaned and checked the battery and still nothing. I had the car towed back to house and wouldn't you know it everything is OK. It started right up.

Hi there,

I would start with the simple things, check that the battery terminals are all clean and tight, check the terminal connections at the starter motor for a good contact and no corrosion, start here,

I had a simalar problem 1 time, It was the small wire that comes off of the battery cable terminal on the starter solenoid. Its what feeds power to the fuse box. Check and or replace a foot or two of that wire with a comperable size wire, I beleive it is 10 guage.
