Question about 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
I have a 1995 Caprice 5.7 LT1. The car starts then idles rough. As soon as I prees the gas pedal it cuts off. Also the manifolds are getting red hot while the car is idling. I have had it looked at by differenet mechanics and each one says something different. The fuel pump, the distributer, out of timing, and bad computer. I am so confused please help.
Now please forgive me here as iam a europeon mechanic whos never seen this model vehicle but from your description here the fuel is burning in the manifold so their is only one thing i can think of and the valves are not seating properly on the inlet side so the burning fuel is bypassing the valves or even one valve catching the fuel spray alight in the manifold ,this could be caused by a timing belt breaking at some time or someone changing the timing belt and crunching a valve or its not been set up right ,Anymore i would need by head under the bonnet and a play around to work out exactly whats wrong ,best advice is to trade it in quick whilst its running and buy a small economical car like a citreon diesel or a VW one .
