Check the injectors. They may have "varnished" up a bit with dried fuel. The fuel filter may have plugged up. Start at the back, pull the line to the fuel filter and make certain that you can get fuel pressure at least that far. Next, connect the fuel filter and see if it's plugged, even partially. If it is, replace it. Next, with the fuel filter back in place, check for fuel pressure at the injectors. Most vehicles have a test port to let you test the fuel pressure. Remember that really old fuel will often not start a vehicle. You may need to drain everyithing and add new fuel. Once you're certain that all of the fuel problems have been addressed, (new filter, new fuel and maybe even a can of injector cleaner in the tank) try a little starting fluid to see if you can get it to run, even briefly. As an absolutely LAST resort, you may need to remove the injector(S?) and get them cleaned or replace them. I don't know if your Corvette is multi-port injected or throttle body injected, although I suspect multi-port, so I'd be surprised if ALL injectors plugged up. Start with the simple, less expensive stuff, and work your way through.
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
If a 1987 Corvette headlight cover will not go back down, it could be a vacuum problem. The mechanism could also be corroded by rust if it has been up for some time.
I have no dash lights or gage lights that come on in my 1982 corvette, what could be the problem ? i checked all fuses.
The engine could possibly seize.
Depending on which engine it has, horsepower could range from 300HP to 435HP.
== == The problem was a broken Rocker Arm Stud. Replaced rocker arm stud.
I do not have a answer for it, do you an answer for this problem?
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
If you are saying it has a fast idle speed that could be caused by a bad throttle position sensor, or a problem with the engine control module.
Depending which optional engine, it could put out either 250HP or 283HP.
There a number of things depending on the age of the engine. The sparkplugs of an older engine could be poorly gapped, fouled or just need to be replaced. The problem could also be the distributor cap could also be the problem. In a newer car the problem could be injecters or any number of sensers. In any car the problem could be wires.
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'.
no it isn't but it could be deadly if sitting right beside spoiler when engine is on
It could.It could.
This could damage the engine.
what could be pulling the battery down in a 1981 corvette
Could be a problem with the thermostat housing or it's gasket, could be a problem with intake manifold gaskets, could be a problem with heater hoses or the fittings that screw into the manifold.
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.
Does the (check engine )stay lit when you start from cold if not then check the engine oxygen sensor may need replacing or the turbo has been replaced and could be blowing out the spark
there can be many reasons why you feel dizzy while sitting down. there could be a problem with your blood pressure, you may have an ear infection, or you could be 19 weeks pregnant.
It could be an emissions problem or a catalytic converter problem.
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.
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
could be a bad pump mabey the relay went bad
