Question about 1994 Chevrolet Corvette

1 Answer

My 1984 corvette is taking in to much gas. You can see the ejector spraying alot of gas. Sometime it ends up with some gas in the oil, so I have to change it. Sometime it may backfire.At times it may run good for a few blocks. Please help.

    Mike, Thanks for the reply, I did have all that done but it did not help. The person who did it doesn't know what to do now. He said it could be the computer. He also said I could convert it from fuel injection to carburetor. Someone else told me that I could do that but none of my control gauges on my dash would work because they work from the comptor which would be removed. My wife folling me home from the shop said she could smell the gas. So I am right back where I stated after $107. worth of parts. :( Ed

Sounds like a condensor or breaker point problem. When it just starts backfiring while running it is certainly ignition related. Most of the time condensors are the culprit but it can be an ignition module or distributor breaker points / sensor (if so installed.) Should not be to hard to sort out. I know most Vette owners are long ago or soon to be mechanics :)

Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: have a 1984 ford pick up thats backfiring and

Sounds like the timing is off to me. Start by checking the timing and place around 12-15 degrees before top dead center on #1 plug. If timing is good then possibly check for crossed wires in the firing order. double and triple check in this case. From the description of the problem it sounds like these may be two options to get started with.

In a nutshell, you disconnect everything attached to it and slide it out the passenger side between the subframe and frame. Obviously, you have to disconnect all of the fluid lines, the tie rod ends on both sides, and the 2 (or 3) bolts that holds it in the car, along with the steering shaft.

My 1984 corvette crossfire v8 smokes wnen stated a puf of white smoke sometimes just a little sometimes a lot but runs great


it could be a lite blue colour that looks white,if so then the car is burning a little oil,the valve seals are probably dried out and allowing small amounts of oil to be drawn into the combustion chamber past the seal and valve guides when the car sits and when started up the oil gets burned in the combustion chamber.if its white smoke then it could be a small head gasket coolant leak.

My 1984 cadi eldorado keeps dying or losing power when I first start it up. It does not die when I am driving it. I have just replaced the fuel pump and thought that it would end the problem. Is there...


I have an eldorado 1984 barritz 4.1 engine. I am no mechanic but had a similar problem and it ended up being the main head gasket bolts were loose out of spec causing loss of compression and water and oil mix. I did the work myself but it was a fight. the car runs strong and with alot of power.

Cant get gas through either jet
