Caprice is the most luxurious and pricy model of Chevrolet’s full-size car range. Launched in 1965, Caprice began as a luxury trim package and will return in 2011 in North America as a police vehicle.
At The Battery Junction Block And At The Starter Solenoid
Its not an electrical fuel pump its a mechanical fuel pump right next to the harmonic balancer in another words called the crank shaft pulley or under the exhaust intake front left side driver side
Also in order to loosen the serpentine belt you have to use a wrench or something and turn on the bottom pulley.... easy remove the serpentine belt for the fan area and remove the two bolts that hold the alternator down and unclip the wiring harness
Well mine is a 5.7 liter 350 v8, with about 170 hp
The (less than helpful) answer that I've seen for this one is once the hydraulic lifts go on the valves, it's cheaper to buy a rebuilt upgrade-spec (KL-DE or KL-ZE) engine than it is to service just the valves alone. Having the valve cover gaskets replaced (due to oil leakage, which of course...
Yes the catback system should fit. As a safe measure call to order the system just to be sure! I saved $200 by having my system made at my local muffler shop. It is 2.25 inch with H pipe and two chambered (Flowmaster) mufflers, all for $260 and it bolts to the cats just like the stock Y did. I also...
Disconnect the battery. Unhook the wiring on the end of the solenoid. If there is a support bracket on the end of the starter, unhook it. If the exhaust is in the way, unhook that. Remove the two bolts that hold the starter to the back of the block.
Answer . i have a 93 caprice so this may not apply, but the bulb goes into a socket underneath the assembly. you can get to it thru the trunk. you don't even need any tools to do it. open the trunk and check around underneath the brake light.. Answer . Unscrew the brakelight mount and turn it...
Depending on how much hp, new mounts, fans, fuel system, tank, tranny, rear end, trans cooler, and possibly hood. About 6-10k for 600-650 hp
I would check the fuse, it's in the driver door access panel. after that, blower itself, bad switch in dash. jr
Hm, check the fuse, then check the fans themselves, for hard turning, if free, try jumping a 12v source to the fan connecter, see if they roll, if not, it's the fans, if so, the cooling fan Temp sensor, controls when the fans do and do not get pwr to cool your engine,... replace it. jr
There is a hoose leading from the upper portion of the Crankcase (where piston and engines are,the upper visible part) to the intake manifold. remove the end that conects to the intake manifold and add it the filter breather, the other end just leave it open or connect a small hose. I recomend a...
The flasher is also the hazard switch located below the fan switch Cleaning the contacts would not fix the problem permenitly. Need to resolder the contacts for the coil.
no need for a diagram, there a a few steps to make sure your engine is spot on when you re-install the dist, or if you just tangle the wires replacing them. I'll just tell you how to set the wires up, assuming the distributor wasn't removed, or moved at all, point the closed rotor cap #1...
A K1500 4x4 short wheelbase is the closest. The wheelbase of the caprice is 116" and the K1500 4x4swb is 117.5". I'm looking to do the same with an 87 caprice. Seems like a surburban frame with a section cut out and boxed may be the way to go. as the frame looks similar to the caprice
\nI've been towing a 1400 lb pop up camper for 2 years without any problem, but I've only driven 3 hours away at a time. I'm about to drive to Michigan with my pop up, so I guess I'll see...
You didn't say what engine, be a little clearer, is a 9-C1? or a civilian car, a 6 cyl perhaps? jr
Definitely not only 88-2000 Chevy these are referred to the c1500 or k1500 c is for 2wheel drive k is for 4wheel drive. Also c2500 and k2500 are 3/4 ton. 2000-2006 (the new body style remember the gm strike) are completely different frames a-arms etc. That's also when Chevy rolled out and renamed...
If you have a Chevy 5.7 liter almost all Chevy transmissions 700r4 th350 th400 etc will fit. You can run a newer transmission 4l60e 4l70e or 4l80e basically they are electric overdrive versions of the older th350 and th400. the 4l60 and th350 is the half ton. The 4l65e is the corvette transmission...
If it is a 6 cyl, it should be a 4.3L (262 ci) If it is an 8 cyl, it is probably a Chevy 305. It could also be a Chevy 350 or an Olds 307. If you fill the oil in the valve cover it is a Chevy engine. If you put oil in a tube on the front of the motor, it is an Oldsmobile. Check your VIN# for...
Ok, here you go.. A) With an ohm meter, measure how many ohms between one side and the other of the "chip" in the ignition key (from the metal ridge in the middle of the black plastic on one side of the key to the other side). An electronics store or Radio Shack will probably measure the resistance...
It depends on what year it is. 74 and older have a bottle style coil mounted to the intake to the driver's side of the distributor. 75-86 have the coil mounted in top of the distributor cap (make sure you replace the coil with the correct coil. If it has a white wire, it must be replaced with...
Remove the woodgrain pieces from your dash and you'll see 4 screws holding it in. Take them out, and pull the whole stereo out of the car by unplugging the harnesses in the back. As far as installing a new one, you could get another stereo from any old gm car and the old harness will work. If you...
All Chevy V-8 engines that have distributor mounted in the rear have the same firing order (except some marine applications). The firing order is 18436572. Cyl 1 is front driver's side. Cyl 2 is front passenger side. driver's side cyl #s from front to back are 1357. Passenger side front to back...
1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 . The firing order goes 1357 is on the right side of the block 2468 are left side. that is if you are standin in front of the motor
Answer . A 1977 caprice was using the same 267cid engine as the impala at the time, wikipedia says it had around 170hp.
The oil light will come on when the oil pressure sensor reads that the expected oil pressure is not being reached. This can happen from a few different things: low oil in the engine, dirty/clogged filter, or a faulty sensor. Either way, it is recommended that you get it looked at immediately so...
if the caprice has a police package engine it probely (sorry about my spelling) the top speed would be 141.2 mph. It depends because the 1991 came out with a 5.0 liter engine and some came out with a police package engine in it. Im only 15 years old and i own a 1991 Chevy caprice classic LTZ. I own...
it's called a Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve. In a 92 it would probably be located just back left of the carburetor, or throttle body, whichever you have. Kinda looks like a steel mushroom with a vacuum line connected to it, you test it basically by reaching your finger up and under the egr...
not without significant modification. The width is wrong and the trailarm mounting locations are all wrong. You would be better off finding an 8 7/8" 10 bolt posi out of a 77-90 wagon (though the wheel bolt pattern is 5" instead of 4.75"). I have also heard that with the exception of the ABS sensor...
1980 and newer GM engines are computer controlled which essentially eliminates the need for adjusting the timing. In the event that the distributor has been moved and needs to be reset, consult a Haynes or Chilton's manual to confirm two things: 1. What the timing should be set at (I believe that...
The low oil cut off switch should be on the side of the oil pan.. It is built into the oil pressure switch..
A pressure tester can be used to see if your oil pressure iscorrect. Pumps usually work or they don't, unless the screen filteris clogged. The only way to check the filter is by visualinspection.
sometimes they r printed somewhere on hood compartment. If not, they are in the books at any autozone>parts store, find a open one or buy $20 i think
I would suspect the temperature sending unit, it should be where the top radiator hose connects to the engine.
1 8 3 4 6 5 7 2 ---cylinders 1 3 5 7 on driver's side front to rear. cylinders 2 4 6 8 on pass side front to rear.
code 24- Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Fault in this circuit should be indicated only when the vehicle is in motion and, disregard this code if the wheel's are not rolling, if the wheels are turning, check connection, then check the TPS sensor, (Throttle Position Sensor.) Of course don't check it...
Answer . there is a relay box in the engine compartment, on the fenderwell that will have some of them
I had a '91 Chevy Caprice witht he 350 motor in it so the precedure should be the same for your car.First diconnect the positive battery terminal from the battery.Second jack the front of the vehicle up and support it securely on jackstands,make sure you push on the vehicle a few times to make sure...
2 separate circuits, separate fuses and separate flasher relays. Check the fuse, if okay then replace the signal flasher relay.
It's equal to 0.62mph.
1993 chevy 4.3 v6 1500 truck temp gauge inoperative,
The transmission is a 4L60E which is an electronically controlled 700R4 based transmission.
\nGenerally between the engine and firewall, on the passenger side. For a 1980's Chevy, look for a round, closed metal loop low and near the distributor (again, on the back of the motor). The oil dipstick generally had a tee handle or an open metal loop on the driver's side of the engine.
I used air shocks in the back and about 5 blocks n the front and no scrub
Approximately 71.5. 115 x .6 = 69 mph mph x .6= kph jr
About an hours labour. They are not hard to put back in. SO about $60-$100
The 1989 Chevrolet Caprice came equipped in a 4.3L V6, three 5.0LV8 variants, and a 5.7L V8. Transmissions included the THM700R4 andTH200R4, and rear 7.5, 8.5 and 8.75 inch rear-ends.
No, it did not. It had a throttle body injected engine, 3 different engines available. The LT1 260 HP "Corvette" engine did not debut until '94, ran thru 'til '96. That was a Tuned Port Injected motor.
Absolutely , a badly timed engine can run like a heap of S--t
Both of these codes are for the crankshaft Position Sensor. You should look at the connector that plugs into the senosr to make sure you have no broken or frayed wires. If that ok you should take it to a mechanic.
Answer . \nYou don't need factory speakers. Just buy the same size speakers and install.
The spark plug wires on your 1994 Chevrolet Caprice are quite easyto change. The spark plug wires simply lift off on each end. Putthe new spark plug wires on and push until you feel a click.
\n Answer \n. \nYour problem could be either a clogged fuel filter or a faulty fuel pump. \n. \nReplacing the fuel filter is relatively simple. The fuel filter is in the fuel line. It is mounted on the frame, under the right rear door. Unlike the mid 80's Caprices, which were attached to the...
Near the blower motor there is a silver colored relay, follow the purple wire on the blower back. Replace the relay you should be good to go.
lay under the front end of the 85 Caprice and reach the hood latchto pull it. You may need a pair of pliers to gain extra arm length.
if light stays on when driving usually means its developted a fault check fault code while its on no abs get a code reader from parts supplier or if apal knows how to connect a jummper wire on aldi to get selight to flash code dave.cop
The cap only has 2 phillip head screws in it . one one the front and one on the back side . just make sure u remember where all the spark plug wires were when you take them off because they have to go back where they were . And you shouild also change the rotor too which is inside the cap . just...
There isn't any. Those shocks are not serviceable.
No spark would usually be the ignition coil.
The 71-97 caprice is a B-Body vehicles and like all B-Body vehicles it has a large wheel well. That means with a really low pro skinny tire you could most likely get 22's on the caprice. But you will not have a good turn radius or if you have a full care the tire will probably rub on the wheel well....
You will be looking at an engine overhaul which can cost $2,500 to $3,000.
it is what the coils are mounted too.
Answer . \nI would guess it probably happens when your stopping from a higher rate of speed. The extra stress on the rotors overheat them, temporarily warping them. Replace them if so.. Answer . \nIF IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN YOU BRAKE HARD IT MEANS THE ABS IS KICKING IN AND IF IT HAPPENS DURRING...
it could be a starter wire are the fuse that goes to the ignition its under the hood
A wiring diagram for the 1996 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon is found inthe maintenance and repair manual books. These are found at anautomotive store.
That model has several belts that have to be replaced one at a time. start on the first belt and it will have a pivot bolt and an adjustment bolt. Loosen both and you can pull the belt to have enough slack to take it off. Do the same on the rest of the belts, moving from front to rear. Place the new...
mine has tbi injection 1991 2 injectors in a throtle bodies later modles one per cylinder 8 dave.cop
either a turbo 350 or a 700r4 (added to answer) the only trans available was the 700 R4 in 1987. 81 was the last year for the 350 and at that is was electronic lockup. 1979 was the last year for the non-lockup 350.
Answer . Most auto supply stores can help you with a list of the fuses you need. If not, a Chevy dealer will.. Answer . The fuse box can be pulled down, there is a handle at the back of it, pull forward and down, fuses are marked for what they are.
Try replacing your Oxygen sensors they are located on the catalytic converter. I had the same problem with my 94 Caprice and that turned out to be the problem.
Answer . \nI just changed the fuel pump relay on my 1992 Chevy Caprice. I found it on the driver's side fender well bracket. There were two relays mounted on the bracket, the one closest to the engine was the fuel pump relay. It was square, made by Bosch.\n. \nAlso I found out that you can go...
Main crankshaft, heads, intakes, in all engines go by a simple rule, first find your torque rating for that specific head, then as I said, the general rule is to start in the center, work your way out in a crisscross pattern, I snug all bolts down first at a far lower torque, then apply the proper...
It's behind the fusible link connector, the red box splitting the power from the battery bolted to the passenger fenderwell, their will be a bracket with 2 relay's there, one is for your AC, the other is the relay for the fuel pump. jr
Answer . \nMost likely they were disconnected inside the door panel. remove panel and look for unplugged connectors. If not get a service manual for the year of the car and look at wiring diagrams. you may have to wire in a harness for the windows
