Question about 1986 Chevrolet Chevette

1 Answer

I have a 86 chevette 1.6 rough idle when put into gear.

I have a 86 chevette 1.6 with electric choke. It is idling very high in park and neutral. But when you put the car in gear. The idle comes down way low and the motor almosat stalls. Once you get it on the road and accelrate it runs good. The SSC actuator vaccum is not on and I can not find where to plug the vaccum line into comming off the actuator. Could this be the problem with idling when putting the car in gear? Does anyone know where the vaccum line should plug into comming from the ssc actuator? thanks

    Thanks for the tip. The motor is in a kit car I picked up a few weeks ago. There was a lot of water in the tank. I removed the tank and drained all the water. The motor only has about 20 miles on it, but had sat up in the car for a while. You wouldn't happen to know where the actuator vaccum line hooks to would you? thanks

It may have a vacuum leak, and /or a dirty carburator that may need to be overhauled.

Hi. Maybe a vacuum leak or a auto choke issue keeping the idle high. If the idle is too high then the reverse gear will crunch.

Something mechanical, ignition, or fuel.
It can run rough under a load such as in gear and ok in neutral with no load. Have you checked the plugs and dist cap ?
