Question about 1990 Chevrolet Caprice

1 Answer

HEAVY SMOKING AND A HUMMING LIKE NOISE.

I HAVE A 1990 CHEVY CAPRICE, WHICH HAS A 305 IN IT. I'VE HAD IT FOR 3 YEARS REPLACING PARTS AND ETC. I RECENTLY HAD AN OIL CHANGE DONE, AND AFTER MY OIL CHANGE WAS DONE MY CAR STARTED SMOKING, I WAS TOLD THAT SOME OIL MAY HAVE SPILLED ON THE MOTOR AND ITS BURNING OFF. WELL ITS BEEN A FEW MONTHS SINCE THEN. AND IT STILL SMOKE. I TOOK IT TO MECHANIC, HE TOLD ME THAT THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH MY CAR. YES IM A FEMALE, BUT I KNOW WHATEVER IS WRONG WITH MY CAR CAN OR HOPEFULLY CAN BE FIXED, SO MY QUESTION TO YOU GUYS IS............ WHAT CAN I POSSIBLY DO TO STOP MY CAR FROM SMOKING. THE MOTOR IS GOOD, I THOUGHT ABOUT BUYING A NEW MOTOR, BUT BEFORE I DO I WOULD LIKE TO TRY AND FIX THE PROBLEM. ALSO SOMETHIME WHEN I START IT UP I WILL CUT BACK OFF. THEN I HAVE TO START IT AGAIN THIS TIME PRESSING ON THE GAS TO KEEP IT FROM CUTTING OFF. BUT IT HESITATES TO STAY STARTED. THEN ONCE ITS UP AND RUNNING I CAN SMELL SOME GAS FUMES, IT HAS A FUEL INJECTED START.

Well the running rough part sounds like a fuel pressure regulator..and as far as the smoke goes there could be a puddle of it somewhere on the motor so it spills a little at a time causeing it to smoke for a while or your oil filter could be loose and that would cause it to leak so maybie ckeck your once in a while to see if it loses oil or anything like that.

Can I put a 1994 Caprice 350 engine into a 1990 GMC 3/4 ton truck ?


yes but it will be difficult. a wiring harness swap will probably be needed since 93-94 were the experimental years for computers. you may need to swap trannys also. i advis you to have fun, the 5.7L chevy is one hell of a hot engine :) its the same one used in corvettes and comaros.

1992 chevy caprice with 305 has a 44 trouble code. what do i do?


Code 44 indicates a lean condition as indicated by the Oxygen (O2) sensor, most times the cause is a bad Oxygen sensor and replacing it solves your problem. But sometimes your sensor is reading properly and your engine is experiencing a lean condition caused by a vacuum leak or low fuel pressure.

What engine of other cars could fit in Chevy caprice 82-85,


almost every rear drive drive full size used the 305 V8, so u can get an engine from a Buick La sabre, Pontiac bonneville and firebird, also Oldsmobile 88, and don't forget Camaro. any 305 chevy V8 will bolt in, also the 350 V8 will bolt in, this is a much better choice..
