As ageneral rule of thumb the seals leak on the compressor every 2 - 3 years. Seem to have better sucess with aftermarket compressors. Very hard to get away from. Also the condensor will generally rot out from rust afte about 8 years. It is the nature of the beast on these models. You can look at the padding under the hood and see if the compressor has been leaking. It will leave a path on the insulation and eat through the insulation.

You can purchase most corvettes at a Chevrolet dealer. You might even find one in the news paper. Auctions are always a great place to find a corvette. If your trying to get the top of the line. You should go directly to a major car show. There are always corvettes their and the attendee from Chevy will be glad to help you out.

The vehicle was factory equipped with a 195 degree thermostat. The early C4 Corvettes had to run hot to burn off emissions and meet federal standards.

Usedcorvettesforsale.com is a very good website for looking up used Corvettes. If you would like to look at Corvettes in person, many Chevy dealers also have used Corvettes for sale.

Any Chevrolet dealer in Oregon should have a selection of Corvettes. You should call around to your local dealerships and see what they might have available.

There is a bulletin dated 3-1-99 for 1997 - 1999 Corvettes about the fuel tanks. That bulletin # is 99-06-04-013 You should be able to get a copy of it at your local dealership.

Depends on if you're looking for a new or used one. If you'd like a used one you should try out kijiji and you might find some that are nearby. If you want a new one you'll have to try out the car dealerships near you that sell corvettes.

Yes, the headlights should be completely identical.

On the 1998 Corvette, the odometer is digital. It should show up digitally right under the speedometer.

REMOVE THE UPPER PANEL UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL, SHOULD BE TO THE LEFT OF STEERING WHEEL. BOTH FLASHERS SHOULD BE THERE HELD DOWN WITH CLIPS , TURN & HAZARD or On my 1986 Corvette the flasher was installed under the passenger side panel just above where the passengers left knee would contact the dash. I know the diagrams don't indicate this but at least some 1986 Corvettes have the turn flashers there ( but not the emergency flasher relay which remained behind the information center , mid-dash)

about 220 HP, it should be higher but the clean air act of 1970 limited to power of the 1970s C3 corvettes. Personally get a better engine, L82s' are fairly weak when compared other V-8 engines however don't expect a mustang to win in a race against one.

The rear portion may have to be modified (underneath the rear window), but it should work otherwise.

If you have a V8 in you Monte now the corvette engine should bolt right in but you will have to change the wiring and computer.

Figure out your engine type, then ask how to set timing on a 1988 corvette ***** engine. That should help you a great deal.

Restoring classic cars can be an expensive undertaking, but visiting car clubs and talking to other owners of similar vehicles should get you information on who in your local area might be able to do your restoration work for you. Alternatively visit www.mcjackscorvettes.com, they do restoration work on corvettes from all over the country.

To let the top down on a 2001 Corvette you will need to go where the windshield meets and then, and then you would want to pull down all of the latches. This should let your 2001 Corvette top down.

There are several good options in order to purchase Corvette floor mats. Some examples include "Auto Anything", "Amazon" or "eBay". Besides that also local Corvette dealers should be checked.

BUY IT!! Lots of men drive vettes

Yes, the mounting position is the same, but the actual mounts are different. Bolt the mounts from your 1975 corvette to your 1996 LT1 engine and it should go right in. The transmission should also bolt right up to your 1996 LT1 engine.
