Question about 1992 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

Changing plugs/wires made engine worse.

I just changed the spark plugs and wires in my 1992 chevy Camaro 3.1 V6 because it was a bit sputtery when accelerating, but now its even worse, not so sputtering but just slow and louder motor noise, I did gap the plugs to about .035-.045 and suggestions?

You shouldnt have to gap the plugs buy the pre-gapped bosch plugs i use them in all my z's If it sounds like your going 90mph but only going 30, check the catalic converter....If its not that( if its glowing red after driving for 20mins, or when you smack it with a hammer and it sounds like a rock its bad) It could be a timming issue or a distributer/ rotor/cap issue....Is it manual or auto.Is the check eng light on?

I need to know how to change the spark plugs in a 1994 Cutlass Ciera S 6cyl 3.1 engine


The two upper motor mounts, between engine and the bar running across the top of the radiator, must be disconnected at the engine end and the engine rotated forward, so that the rear plugs can be worked on. On a Chevy, there is a second hole in one of the mounts (dog-bone mount) that can be used to hold the engine forward. I'm not sure if the Oldsmobile has this type of mount or not. See the linked YouTube video. CHANGING SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES GM 3 1 3 4 V6

2000 Chevy Camaro automatic, V6 3.8l engine, stalls then starts, how do I fix this problem


If it stalls out when hot and then restarts after it cools down it could be one of two things. The ignition module shutting the spark down or the fuel pump shutting the fuel off. Next time it happens pull a plug wire and ground it out and have someone crank it to see if you have a nice blue spark. Be careful to not shock yourself.

Plugs


Changing the spark plugs is a pretty easy task. The spark plugs run along both sides of the engine, 1 per cylinder. (3 on each side) You can easily identify them by the plug wires running to them from the distributor. Pop off each plug wire, (1 at a time) and replace the spark plug. Once you have replaced the plug, replace the plug wire. This ensures that you dont mess up the sequence of the wires which determines which cylinder fires at what time in the cycle. VERY important not to mess up the sequence. If you should happen to get the wires mixed up, look online for the firing sequence for your vehicle and engine.

No spark in my 1992 Chevy Camaro RS 3.1L engine rotates but doesn't engage.


Hi Candie, if you have air, fuel and spark it should run. Getting to the fuel side-"is fuel getting into the engine?" Your ignition may work, your starter may work, fuel pump may work, but if you have an ignition key with a resistor inside it (little silver piece of metal in the plastic of the ignition key) the key, it could be bad and will shut down the fuel injector. It's part of the security system if some idiot tries to break the steering column to steal your car. It won't run.
I have a 92 Z28 with a 350 and I had to get a new ignition with resistor and correct resistor ohm key. About $400.00 bucks but if you search around Z28 forums there are ways to bypass this for less $$ if you want to.
