Question about 1996 Chevrolet Camaro

2 Answers

When I shift my 96 camaro from it starts shaking and no power.

When I shift the car it starts shaking like its not getting enough power or something. I went from 1st gear into second and it started shaking and then died. It starts fine but when I went to shift again it did the same thing accept this time I was able to keep it on by giving it more gas, it started jerking more and the check engine light came on, blinking for about a minute then it went solid. What is wrong with my car????

The "blinking" service engine light is indicating an over fueling problem that can damage the catalytic converter.
You will need to have the codes read to narrow the problem down.
I would suggest you not drive the vehicle as you may cause unnecessary damage to the emission system (convertor) and added expense to repair.
Good luck.
Let me know.
Regards,

Im not a guru but i had a similar problem with my camaro and it was not firing in the #1 cilindar, coil pack went out. you could try to start the car and unplug the wires from the coil pack to see if it makes a difference. if there is no difference then there is somthing wrong with that cylinder. plug, wire, coil or the firing plate. cheep and easy way to check, good luck

96 camaro stops moving on drive for no reason


I just had the same problem my truck felt as though it shifted into neutral after transmission got hot and then when it cooled it shifted normal, transmission lost high gear.
if your car starts right away the maybe its your neutral safety switch.
hope this helps, I am not a transmission guy, just what I would check first.
