Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Camaro
Well first is drain and replace all fluids first. very very important.
gas , oil , anti-freeze are the first three and the rest can be done
shortly after like transmission fluid , power steering fluid and washer
fluid. but those are the ones you need to replace before you even try to
it most likely won't start like that but if it does you can cause damage.
i know everybody won't be able to drain there gas in some cases if you have 1/4 or less fuel and depending on how long it has been sitting you may get away with not draining it but make sure when refueling use high octane gas and some dry gas or stabilizer additive with the refill of the tank you should also do this if you drain the tank. this will help get any old gas and water out of the lines.
now after that , the next three are the filters another very important thing and i wouldn't recommend starting it till done. fuel filter , oil filter and air filter.
after that is done you will need to dis able the ignition system so it can not get spark. yes not get spark. do so by removing the coil wire for coil that is in between coil and distributor or if you have coil packs unplug the primary connector to dis able.
you will need to have a good battery in it and turn the motor over till the oil pressure comes up a little on the gauge in the dash. this is priming the oiling system so you do not damage any internal components from dry starting.
once the oil comes up you can reconnect the ignition system and try to start it. you may have to be helped along by pressing on the gas pedal but it should start.
once started do not rev it up until the oil is past 40 -50 psi at least. let it run till it is warm check the transmission fluid level and if okay then move it around.
once you have it started and everything is okay you should have the rest of the fluids changed as i mentioned before.
that should be it and you should be fine.
