SOURCE: Engine cuts out and Backfires

First thing i would check would be the mass air sensor. Sounds like its running rich after it goes into closed loop fuel. In open loop it has preset values and are based on the temp sensor. Then either run on the map sensor or mass air which everone it has.

No. Every thing is way differant. Mounts, trans bellhousing, brackets. Just about everything. It could be done with a whole doner car. The 2500hd trucks have the same engine so if you could find one of those then you would have most everything you need.

SOURCE: trying to wire a 1994 lt1 into 1996 chevy s-10

It should be a plug and play if your using the ECM for the 1994 engine. The ECM on the 1996 S10 will no work on the LT1 engine, for one thing the S10 ECM will only command for 6 fuel injectors and will have different injection pulse and so on. The program of the S10 ECM is made for the Vortec as to the LT1 will have different parameter **** as engine running temperature, vacuum readings, and timing.
The most obvious would be the 1994 LT1 runs on a OBDI system and the 1996 is running on a OBDII system. You can still run the 1994 LT1 from a 1994 with a OBDii system ecm, but some of the sensors will need to be upgraded to accommodate for the proper readings the OBDII system will need to have the engine to run right.
If you don't have the right ECM for the LT1, go to the wrecker's and locate one, Caprice, Camero, Firebird ECT.....
Thank you for using fixya and good luck on your project.

Just bought a 1997 corvette been sitting a while charged up battery would not stay running was missing only ran when i kept on fethering pedal the noticed exhaust pipe got cherry red


Check to see if the exhaust is exiting the rear tailpipe. Could be a plugged up catalytic converter. Or some sort of obstruction in the exhaust system....

Catalytic converter turns red hot on my 2002 ford escape


The cherry red is probably due to raw gasoline being burned in the converter. Since the engine isn't running right (and I'm surprised you didn't say the Check Engine light was on), there seems to be some kind of valve timing issue or perhaps a burnt valve that is causing at least one cylinder to not fire and thus expel the fuel/air mixture into the exhaust stream. This can be confirmed with a compression check of the cylinders. If they are all low, then there is a problem with valve timing, possible a jumped belt/chain. If only one cylinder is low, then a burnt or broken valve is more likely.

I have injector pulse.switched coils .still miss fire on 2/4/6/ converter is cherry red.


If the catalytic converter is cherry red there are only a few things that will cause this, extreme over-fueling causing excess unburned fuel to enter the exhaust and overheat the catalytic converter. You will need which cylinder(s) is misfiring, you can ID the problem cylinder by checking the diagnostic OBD2 fault codes, you will have a P03XX in memory, with the XX's being the cylinder number that is misfiring. The possibilities are this, you have an injector that is stuck open or a low cylinder compression issue or a very lean condition that keeps the fuel from burning like a big vacuum leak. Also address any other fault codes found in the OBD2 fault code testing. DO NOT CONTINUE TO RUN THE ENGINE TO THE POINT THE CATAYLUTIC CONVERTER TURNS CHERRY RED! YOU WILL RUIN A VERY EXPENSIVE PART IF YOY HAVEN'T ALREADY

My catalytic converter is getting cherry red hot whats the problem in it?


Possibly nothing. That's entirely normal under many circumstances and is exactly how a catalytic converter ensures that no unburnt hydrocarbons escape. If it's happening even at idle then it suggests that the fuel mixture is far too rich and that can be caused by as simple a matter as a dirty air filter.
