Question about 1989 Chevrolet C/K 3500

1 Answer

89 Chevy Corsica keeps stalling while driving

Had a tune-up, replaced ignition module and ignition coil. While driving the car lurches forward without giving it any gas or completely stalls. When starting it, you have to maintain gas to the car or will stall many times. Very scary pulling out into traffic.

. Have it checked for a trouble code. It seems like a sensor problem. ( Idle position , crankshaft position, camshaft position sensors could be bad. Also the EGR valve could be bad. with a caode you can narrow it down a bit.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the 8 or 11-pin harness connector, as applicable, from the coil and module assembly.
  3. Remove the ignition assembly-to-camshaft housing attaching bolts.
  4. Carefully remove the ignition assembly from the engine.
If the spark plug boots present a problem coming off, it may be necessary to use a special removal tool, first twisting and pulling upward on the retainers.
  1. Remove the ignition coil housing-to-cover bolts/screws.
  2. Remove the cover from the coil housing.
  3. Detach the ignition coil harness connectors from the coil pack assembly.
  4. Carefully lift the coil pack out and remove the contacts and seals from the housing.
To install:
  1. Install new coil seals into the coil housing.
  2. Install the coil contacts to the coil housing and retain with petroleum jelly.
  3. Place the coil pack into the housing and connect the harness connectors.
  4. Assemble the cover to the coil housing and install the attaching bolts/screws. Tighten the attaching bolts/screws to 35 inch lbs. (4 Nm).
  5. Install the spark plug boots and retainers on the ignition assembly housing secondary terminals.
If the boots and retainers are not in place on the housing secondary terminals prior to installing the ignition assembly, damage to the ignition system may result.
  1. Position the ignition assembly to the engine while carefully aligning the boots to the spark plug terminals.
  2. Coat the ignition assembly-to-camshaft housing attaching bolts with an approved lubricant and install them into the housing.
  3. Tighten the attaching bolts to 16-19 ft. lbs. (22-26 Nm).
  4. Attach the harness connector to the ignition coil module assembly.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

This is for the 2.8L engine. Sometimes if it is hard to see, you can use a mirror and a flashlite. Aim the mirror in the direction of part your trying to look at, shine the lite in the mirror.

89 Chevy 2.8L #3 & #6 misfire.

The ignition modulator may have to be replaced, you can pick one up at Auto Zone and it's still pretty expensive so you may want to try the Salvage yards. The ignition modulator's are common interchangeable part for the GM line so you can get one from a newer car then your 89 cavalier. Good luck and hope this helps. I believe Auto Zone can also test the ignition modulator too, the modulator is what the coils sit on.

1992 chevy corsica runs rough,stall or dies after stopping

Sounds the EGR valve and EVP sen is bad even if you tested it. The EGR valve cntrols idle and if carbon up will make the car stall or idle high and low (rpms going up and down) This was common on all cars during that time. I would say replace the EGR valve and senosr. This should take care of the problem. One more thing have the fuel pressure check on the car.
