Burnt valve? Start the car, take a store receipt with you to the back of the car and hold the receipt near the tailpipe. Normally, the exhaust will blow the receipt away constantly, but if a valve is cracked, you will notice that on occasion you will see the paper being sucked into the tailpipe.

sounds like you have an air leak. it could be in any of your intake hoses. check them real good because the smallest pin hole will throw your idle off. also check your idle air control motor.

I have a 1992 chevy caprice.when car sits overnight i go to start it and it cranks over probably 7or 8 times then starts and runs good.i had a 1977 chevy with a carburator and it fired up in about 1.5 to 2...


No this is not normal at all and you have a problem. FI engines should start immediately and run great without any hesitation. It can be a partially clogged fuel filter. Replace the fuel filter ASAP. It can also be a weak fuel pump or defective fuel pressure regulator especially on a 18 year old car. Fuel pump is located on top and inside the fuel tank. The tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump. After replacing the fuel filter and fuel pressure test will tell you if the pump is going bad.

Have you taken the battery back to have it retested? Sometimes even a new one can be bad. Does this only happen after it sits overnight?

Automatic Transmission shifts late and rough after warm


Try servicing the tranny fluid if not changing the fluid, if the problem has existed too long it may be time for a new tranny.
