I had the same problem. It could be that your spark plugs are wet with gas or that your coil is weak.AnswerIf I'm reading that right your saying that it will run if you keep your foot on the gas I'm not real firmilar with that motor but it likely has a idle control sensor to keep the car idle it might be the problem or you idle might be off.
the dealership will quote about $600.00 for the optispark alone. they quote 10hrs at 60.00 shop/hr
u need a new OPTISPARK
a new heater core
It already has
There is no 2009 Camaro. 2010 is already at dealers.
Considering the 1996 Camaro Z28 already has a 350, the answer is yes
The problem could be your optispark distributor. They have a tendency to corrode inside and when this happens, it hinders the performance to the point that acceleration is greatly hampered. A bad optispark will also cause starting issues and engine misfires. Besides the optispark, check for a vacuum leak. Intake manifold leaks are very common on the LT1, as well as valve cover gasket leaks.
probly a bad optispark (distibuter). Could be several things but this is the most commen problem with lt1 f bodies
Yes, it is located behind the balancer, all the plug wires lead to it. The distributor for all 92-97 Camaros, Firebirds, and Corvettes with the 5.7L LT1 motor is called an Optispark distributor, unlike most conventional ignition distributor designs, the optispark design uses an optical sensor and a trigger disc to send the ECM a high and low pulse signal. Located directly under the waterpump, the optispark dose require a fair amount of labor for removal. There are many options available for LT1 owners when it comes to replacing their malfunctioning Optisparks.

No, 1982 to 1992 are the same body stile, 1993 and up it changed
It must. I am having my '94 Camaro's timing gasket changed for just that reason.
I think they changed them just a bit, somewhere in there, but, the cars are the same width, so yes.
