    1992 LT-1 and have had this problem since replacing Optispark, wires, plugs, new lifters, injectors, pretty much the "whole nine yards". Ran everything through that I could with no fix. The guy at Just Corvettes recommended replacing the cats and sensors. I am witing on the cats right now.

Sounds like the Opti-Spark distributor on front of engine is defective that is the most common issue. Sold my Vette and have a spare new one for sale, want to buy it.

LT1 93 has little faults to accererate hard from low rpm, like "doubts". Keeping on high rpm acceleration is ok. Only 6k miles.


Very hard to say what is wrong, do you have any kind of car history like if the waterpump was leaking or replaced? If so like my 1994 vette the pump is in the front of opti-spark 99.9 percent of the time the water will ruin the opti. I have replacement mine many times, mainly because of the waterpump. if you replace pump you Must change opti-spark, its right there in open after you take out pump.it will save you 4 hours labor time.

I am replacing the the spark plugs and wires on my 92 corvette lt1 engine, but to change the wires seems impossible because they are under pulleys. any suggestions on how i should do it??? should i remove...


You don't have to pull the fenders off. The passenger side is fairly easy. On the Drivers side it is more of a challenge. First, remove the serpentine belt. Then remove the belt tensioner which is held on with one bolt. From here you can get to the wires on the drivers side of the opti spark. On the plug end you may need to remove a couple of bolts or the ASR mounts but if you work at it, you can fish them through. Don't do them one at a time under the Alternator. Put them in the clip and run them to the Opti-Spark. It is not fun but with patience you can get the plug end take care of without busting too many knuckles.

94 toyota land cruiser runs rich, rough idle, no power


You have a fuel injected car. Things that can cause too rich would be a bad altitude sensor like the map or mass air flow depending on which one you have.
Anything that would cause excess air to go into the exhaust system like a cracked exhaust pipe before the 02 sensor, or low compression, or a stuck open pcv valve, intake gaskets, throttle body base gasket.
Or a Throttle position sensor which is telling the computer you foot is on the gas when it is not.
Its possible you have a bad PCM,, or coolant temp sensor saying the motor is still cold as its warming up.
Its possible you have a vacuum hose somewhere on the engine with a big crack in it or its just inplugged and you dont see it.

But my first guess would be possibly a bad computer.
Try creating a big vacuum leak when its loading up. It should run better.

Also if you have an egr valve it could be stuck open a little causing excess air or an idle air control valve stuck open.

Does it clean up if you rev it up or does it blow black smoke reved and at idle. This could point towards the altitude sensor.

Runs rich and miss fires


Make sure the spark plug wires are on right (propper firing order), and check the TPS sensor. Are there any exhaust leaks or vacuum leaks? Did you use the original intake manifolds and Holley throttle body? If not you need to replace the PROM chip with the one from the donor car.

I have seen on manyengines that using high performance plugs can cause problems like your's. If you used split-fire's or platinum 4 plugs change them back to OEM sytle plugs and your problem should be solved. If you used OEM plugs check that none are loose or cross threaded as this can cause a loss of compression.

Let me know what type of plugs you iinstalled and I can try to assit further.
