Re: the choke light comes on ,on my 1986 camaro z-28
I have a 86 as well It sounds like your idle control sensor is bad. first things first though take it to a local auto parts store and ask them to run a diagnostic trouble code check on it this service is usually free and from those codes you can go to www.thirdgencamaro.org and see what the codes are.

sounds like the float is sticking or may have a hole in it, you can try adding some automatic transmission fluid to the gas - sometimes works if it sticking,check for a vaccume leak - but usually won't overfuel with a leak- but has happend.
The float in the carb is sticking..Buy a can of carb clean and spray it down as good as you can..In every hole and what you can get to...Alot of times this will work without having to take it off and clean it..After you spray it down really good let it sit for about 20 min.That will give it enough time to break down theat old gummy gas build up..After letting it sit Start it up..You may have to hold the gas pedal to the floor in order to start it because of the over satutration of the cleaner..After letting it run for awhile let it idle and go under the hood with it still idling and rev the motor up and closing the choke at the same time..You may have to rev it up a little high..When you rev it up and the motor is racing quick close the choke and the motor will start to die down and rev it a little with the choke on..What this does is by closing the choke when its reving up is it sucks all that crud build up out .You may have to do that a few times but it works great..Good Luck and Have a great day
thanks for the accurate description....makes it easier to diagnose . One of two things it is....either a fuel pump OVER-working....highly unlikely...or your fuel pressure regulator.......sounds like you pressure reg tho with what you described......located on top of the motor on the fuel rail...
Your automatic choke is probably sticking. Spray it out with 2+2 Carb and Choke Cleaner. Do this when the car is cold so you don't start a fire. While the car is running see what position the choke butterfly is in when the engine is hot. If it is partially closed you may have a bad spring in the choke mechanism or it may need an adjustment.
pull the trans dipstick and see if it is full. if it is smell the fluid does it smell built ? is it red or brown? if it is not on the dipstick then add some and you maybe okay. you need to have your trans rebuilt.good luck
Check the compressor when you notice the smell. See if its running or not. It could also be the blower motor itself. I'd suggest checking the blower motor first off. Those usually only last a few years, and if it got wet some how it could have rusted or corroded on the inside. Or a wire broke on the inside and it shorts out to ground which could explain the smell.
there are two solutions or situations to this. one your timing is off and you will need to use a timing device or something like that. second you just need to let the motor war up. you may have to keep reving to me motor till you think the car is warm up. it may take about 10 - 15 minutes but dont rev the motor too much.
