Question about 1988 Chevrolet Corvette

1 Answer

After a drive my 1988 Corvette would not restart. Cranked weakly

I drove my 1988 Corvette, and it was fine. I shut it off at home. I tried to restart it, and it barely cranked. Dead battery? Battery was checked at Sears Automotive a few weeks ago, after car sat idle for quite a few weeks, and they said it was fine. It started up okay today. I drove it for about 15 miles to the store. Upon return, I shut the car off in my garage. I decided to pull the car up a few feet, so I tried to restart it. It cranked weakly for a second and then stopped. Retried. Same result.

If your Corvette has the LT1 engine then it likely has a problem with the Opti-Spark distributor. These are a notorious problem with the LT1. It is mounted on the water pump and when that water pump seal starts to leak it leaks into the distributor housing causing condensation. Search the web for the various kits that fix this issue. there are several web sites that discuss the Opti-Spark and how to upgrade.

Mountaineer shuts off


it might be a blockage in your fuel lines, this will sometimes make your car go into failsafe, because it knows there is gas in the car but a limited amount reaches the carbarettor, this is also why it will sometimes stop while trying to "rapidly" accelarate ( from a red light )
