Replaced my steering column on my 94 camaro with one from a 98 ,car wouldnt start so I grounded the blk/ylw wire on TD start Relay.Car starts and runs only 3 seconds then dies.Anyone have any Ideas?


You may have replaced with a chipped ignition. I'm not sure how that would effect your starting, but my car will run for 2 seconds if I start with a non chipped car, then dies. This is an absolute guess, sorry I can't be more accurate.

1998 Camaro starts just fine, will back out of the driveway and put into drive. Car will sputter, backfire, black smoke out of exhaust and not keep running. Has done this 3 times in the last month...


i had the same trouble with my 98 3.8lt 3800 series II. i changed the spark plugs still no dice i changed the cables still same problem i then changed coil packs and the control piece under the coil packs that fixed it. the misfire caused it tho run rich ,which cause black smoke you might also run some fuel cleaner through it on a tank of primium gas. hope this helps

Why does my mazda rattle when I start it up?


hi..
this is because the engine has been started from the cold condition. due to the sudden temperature rise the expansion of parts takes place which makes the rattle noice.

Have you replaced the ignition switch? Passkey wire broken can cause no start problem.

98 Camaro 3.8 V6 stalls when started w/cold engine


Sounds like your throttle body and throttle plate are full of carbon.You also have a idle air control motor with a pintle on the end that gets carbon on them.Go to your local parts store and get a can of throttle body cleaner and a old tooth brush and clean throttle body and plate and if you can remove the IAC and clean the pintle and bore. that should take care of your stalling.

My 98 saturn sl2 is very hard on reverse. if the engine just started, it reverse slightly. but as the engine gets warm the reverse is not working. help please.


could be 3 things
if you have reverse but a bad delay into reverse it could be a loose input shaft nut in the trans,and or a bad valve body
if you have no reverse you got a torn seal in the trans but if you have a torn seal you will have no second gear as well as they share this seal,,,i would take it to the saturn dealer as trans shop have no idea how to fix these,like cottman and them have no idea,,take it to saturn
