Hi, this is normally a fuel transfer issue. i recommend changing the fuel filter and fuel pump if not done already. I also would change the air filter as well.this will help with the air and fuel flow.

If possible, it would help even more if you would change the spark plugs and wires as well.

To top it off, Add a fuel system cleanser. Techtron makes some of the best fuel additives on the market. This type of fuel system cleaner will scrub the fule lines and intake as well, in return, cleaning out all carbon deposits that may be causing spuddering and obstructions.

I had that problem when I tried the original coil pack. Since there's one loose, I tried the one that was already mounted. What happened is that it would idle rough, stall most of the times, and have backfires as well. Look for the coil pack and maybe spark plug wires. to check for spark plugs, take out one, and you should have the approximate status for ll the other 5.

Rough idle, Car shakes, sputters and misfires upon acceleration

It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.

Was wondering what this diagnostic code means. C0035

This solution is for 1987 to 1989 Chevrolet Camaro vehicles, TPI V8s.

It's an Idle Air Control (IAC) circuit failure. The close throttle engine speed is 125 RPM above or below desired (commanded) idle speed for 45 seconds. See a dealer service department for trouble diagnosis.
