You need to find out the code that is bringing in the check engine light. To do this- under the dash on the drivers side to the right is a computer connector. Turning the key on and shorting out the top right connectors will cause the cooling fan to start and the check engine light to flash. It will read a code 12 3 times( count the flashes with a small delay beween each flash followed by a long delay) followed by the fault repeated 3 times. Your question is too vague to have a good response to. Any number of things could bring in an alarm- O2 low, MAF,EGR operating,TPS low or high voltage,etc. I suggest you find the code and ask another question. You might find the answer is in the code.

Depends on how old. Would help to know what year of Camaro Corvette we're talking about, and also what transmission both vehicles have. It could be as simple as reflashing the ECM, or could be more complex, involving new engine mounts, fabricating brackets for components which aren't positioned ideally for a Corvette engine compartment, maybe even a new transmission, if you're swapping in something like a 6.0 in a car which used to have a 5.7.

It very well could, yes (although the car most likely won't run at all with a bad fuel pump).

Depending on which engine it has, horsepower could range from 300HP to 435HP.

User Avatar

Depending which optional engine, it could put out either 250HP or 283HP.

a corvette zr1 could beat a gallardo or an older lamborghini. the new murcielago has a 650 or 670 hp v12 engine depending on the specific trim. It has more hp than the corvette and about the same handling. The corvette does have more hp than most ferraris'.

what could be pulling the battery down in a 1981 corvette

No, but something that could cause uneven idle could cause the check engine light to turn on.No, but something that could cause uneven idle could cause the check engine light to turn on.

This will depend on the size of the engine and how much gas it consumes per gallon. Being it is a Corvette and the engine is a V8... not far. If you get 25 miles per gallon perse..you could travel 175 miles on 7 gallons.

Likely caused by a bad filter that allows air to circulate in the engine, also could mean you have bad pistons, alternator, converter, or perhaps a misfire in the engine, if not then there could be something else wrong in the engine Best option is to have your car dianosed

The metal shavings are coming from something inside of the 1999 Silhouettes engine. A bearing is coming apart most likely, and the engine could fail if the problem is not fixed.

I wish I could help but I never owned a C4 Corvette. I went from a C3 '77 to a C5 '04. I can't help you but I knwo where you can get a lot of help for all your questions. I

Most likely if your antenna will not come up on your 1986 Corvette, it is probably due to a technically issue , such as the stereo is wired wrong. Or it could just be that it is stuck down from sticky goo. It could also just be broke in general.

Lambo Aventador could kill the Corvette the Corvette only goes 330kph but Lambo Aventador goes 370.

The fastest Corvette in the world is most likely the 2009 ZR-1.It also Could be the 1969 ZL-1 427. Both are extremely fast cars. Although this does not include someone's hot rod they built way back in the boonies, or a corvette funny car.

There are a few things that can cause this problem. The spark plugs could be bad, the distributor cap could be off, the spark plug cables or boots could be damaged.Ê

User Avatar

it depends on the year, but a new Corvette ZR1 could go 205-215 MPH

User Avatar

Before I can answer your question I need to know if the engine backfires during any other operations, such as putting the car in drive?

There are many places where one could find out more about the seats of a Corvette. One of the best places to learn more about Corvette seats is to contact Corvette directly.

It means that there is something wrong with the engine and not the battery

The cost of a classic Corvette depends almost entirely on its condition. For a classic Corvette in a very good condition you could easily pay $40,000.

User Avatar

No, The Viper could not beat a Corvette, it couldn't beat a Ford GT, which is also slightly shorter than a Corvette (If I'm not mistaken, the Ford GT's top speed is 203 mph, with the Corvette about 205). -+

User Avatar

you most likely could as long as the displacement is about the same

User Avatar

Most likely, this means there is something wrong with your engine. It could be minor, but it could be really bad to. take it to a shop you trust, and have them look at is. be wary of unneeded extras, just get what needs to be done done.
