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
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. The guys at www.all-ignition.com are the foremost experts on this particaluar ignition system and have the largest selection on Brand New Optispark distributors. They provide excellent tech support on install questions and general info on the optispark distributors.
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
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.
Prices on such conversions vary, but it would ultimately be far cheaper to buy a Camaro already equipped as such
there is a connector piece on the very top of the optispark that is very thin and i had one do the exact same thing you will only need the piece of the distrtibutor that connects to the motor.
If its a Z28 the difference is a nonvented opti spark VS a vented optispark of course this doesnt include the countless number of option combinations like TTops, power windows/locks A/C stuff like that.... if its a V6 the 94-95s are 3.4L but in late 95 they swapped over to 3.8L 95 3.8L are rare
The Camaro started using the 4L60-E in 1994, so that's what your 96 Camaro should be set up for already.
direct bolt in fit.. only differences may be in wire connections.. but that to can be changed
No, it does not have a crank sensor. the optispark (distributor) does the job that a crank and cam sensor would do for that model of Camaro. they added one for sure in 1997 I know that because I have had a 93 94 95 and 97 Camaro z28 not sure if 96 has one or not I haven't had one of those to work on but they are real easy to find on the models that have them they are located at the bottom of the timing cover and have a 3/8 bolt that holds them in.
General Motors made the '68 Camaro'. '68 Camaro' had more pointed front grille and divided rear tail lights. The front running lights were changed from circular to oval.
88 Iroc came with either 305 or 350. You already answered the question with camaro 350
I would think so. The 1982 to 1992 Camaro/Firebird are the same generation. There wasn't much that changed in the way of the body on the cars. They changed the front and rear bumbers/grills/lights around a little, but even these will swap from year to year in entirety.
my 92 camaro is fitted with the anti theft device i changed the ignition switch and the car will not start need codes what are they??
oil pump is defective and not working.
Yes, but it would be a PITA to do. If you have a six cylinder, and plan on going to an 8, it would just be cheaper to buy a Camaro that already had a V8 in it.
No you can not this began in 94 when the body style first changed to 4th generation.........
