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.

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.

96 Camaro, Car shakes in higher rpms


Hook up a fuel pressure gauge to rule out a failing fuel pump/ regulator and filter and report back with the pressure readings we start here. Also check the injector/s -have helper crank engine over and you listen to it if its clicking in a uniformity manner or use a noid lite.
The fuel pressure should be 41-47psi yours is on the low side, Fuel injector solenoid resistance is 11.8-12.6 ohms. If the fuel filter has not been replaced, try with that also and add some fuel injector cleaner every time you fill up with gas for the next three fill ups. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100%

you need to have an oil change for your transmission, while at it you should clean the strainer or filter inside.
