Question about 1987 Chevrolet Camaro
I have a 87 Iroc 305 Tuned Port Injection that is having some nasty issues. The engine starts without issues, however it will attempt to die at idle if you do not keep you're foot on the gas. It also smells like it is running really rich. At highway speeds, it seems fine, but driving around the city is horrible. While driving through parking lots or at a stop sign/light it lopes and attempts to die. I've replaced the MAF sensor, plugs (which the gap was verified), plug wires, distributor button and cap, PCV valve, & air filters. I just found the bypass wire and will be checking timing tomorrow; but other than that, I'm running out of ideas. Can anyone help?
It sounds like a basic tune up is in order. I am not much on auto tranny stuff, so I'll bow out of that part. But on the dying, it sounds like the car just hasn't been maintained at all. Plugs ,rotor, distributor cap, maybe even plug wires, depending on your money situation. It could be something to do with your coldstartinjector .
change the trans fluid, put something like valvoline max life in it (some high milage fluid) and a thing of lucas trans fix, that could slove your problem .
