Wow really , what are you talking about , the emission problem is only that goto autozone the code does not go away when the light comes on , find the code from them and then come back if need be and post , the autozone person will tell you what may be wrong with it ,most of the time the ck enging lighs come on is a 02 sensor , but not all the time and most emissions problems are a simple fix so don.t get scamed , the worst is the cat , so good luck

SOURCE: there is a coolant leak

Since you used a question mark after "engine oil", I assume that you're not too sure where the coolant is going. While it's certainly possible for the coolant to end up in your oil, you should be able to see byproducts of combustion in your coolant (a very dirty coolant) if the head gasket is leaking. It could also force coolant out of your overflow as you drive, but not while you are sitting idle, making it hard to actually see if this happening to your coolant. Check your coolant for signs of this "blow-by". If your engine is losing power, you might want to do a cylinder balance check.

SOURCE: Check engine light flashes sometimes and runs rough

A flashing check engine light is a critical indicator. That usually means that something went wrong that will damage the emission control system... and that is usually an ignition issue. First off, the OEM plug your car calls for is an NGK irridium... NOT BOSCH and not anything with more than 1 prong. Those NGKs are like 2 bucks and they are the proper plug. Make sure you have these plugs and make sure they are gapped to .028. Next, my suggestion is put all the new stuff on again. Drive it to autozone and have them delete all the codes. Drive it around until the check engine light comes on again, then immediately go back and read the codes. The ECU is smart enough to know which cylinder is misfiring. On these cars, I think they have three banks of two... meaning one "coil" inside the coil pack operates two of the cylinders. So if you get multiple misfires, it's the coil. If you get one misfire it's probably an individual plug wire or plug. Good luck.

Anyone aware of a regular problem with the 1993 Camaro Z-28 needing trans mounts every couple of years. One owner car with 100,000 miles on it, used regularly but not beaten. Thanks for the time and effort...

Mounts generally last a long time as long as the rubber portion is not exposed to oil. If there is oil coating the transmission and mount, you may want to try to find the source of the oil leak.

I don't know what engine is in the Z-28 package, but I had a '93 Lumina (3.1L V6) that leaked oil badly from the plate the blocked off the hole where the distributor used to be. (Sometime before '93, they eliminated the distributor and went to coil packs.) Replacing the gasket under this plate solved my problem.

My daughter has 1995 Chevy Lumina with a 425 engine (?) that leaks oil. The intake valve has been replaced and it still leaks oil. The mechanic says he can't place the origin of the leak because the...

I had a '93 Chevy Lumina (sedan) with the 3.1L V6, and it was also leaking oil badly enough to coat the underside of the car with an oily sheen. A mechanic pointed me in the right direction. There is no distributor on this car, but there is a blank-off plate installed where the distributor used to be. The oil pump drive shaft runs off a gear meshed with the cam under this plate, which is also what the distributor used to be driven from. All I had to do was remove the plate, replace the gasket fitted between the plate and the opening, and oil could no longer seep through there. As I remember, I had to remove the air horn from the intake plenum to get at this plate. Hope this helps.
