Check the crank sesor located on the back of the engine between the transmission tail and engine you may have to remove the thrans/motor supprot plate to see. that is the most common no start ploblem. If I may ask why did you change the timing chain?

I just solved the problem with my Sons 1996 Chevy Corsica's engine would turn but not start, I changed the electronic coil wich is what the 96's have instead of a distributor cap. it is the part that the spark plug wires attach to. My son's car IS A FOUR CYLINDER so he has two electric coils, however only one was bad. the coils sell for around $24.00 each.

I have a 3.1 1991 Corsica. I have recently changed the Plugs,wires,coil packs,and fuel filter to try and fix a problem. The addition of these new parts have resulted in better performance and I have been...


Really need a little more info. Not sure about what it does after it warms up. If it just dies Re check the coil and ignition module. If it boggs but doesn't stall then its starving for something. Fuel probably since you have replaced all that stuff already. Start with the fuel fikter. Best way is to put a fuel pressure gauge on it cold start it and watch if pressure drops when It starts acting up. I'M GOIN TO SAY FUEL FILTER. Final answer.

Back firing, seems like lack of fuel, need to know where both filters are


Back firing is caused by improper firing order or bad timing belt or chain.Verify spark plug wires are on in correct order. If no one has been changing wires, check that when harmonic balancer is lined up at top dead center that rotor in distributor is lined up to tower that goes to plug wire that goes to number one cylinder. First plug in front on passenger side. If it is off your chain or belt depending on motor needs to be changed.

1991 Corsica with 3.1 wil not start has spark


Is this 40lbs. at the pump or after the fuel filter? If at the pump, the fuel filter may be blocked. Change it if necessary. Good luck!

Is your fuel pump working & if it is when did you change the fuel filter last? Did you move fuel line close to a heat source? I.E. exhaust manifold rad hoses etc. You could be experiencing vapour lock. Insolate fuel line with fuel line protecter material.

Sounds like a faulty sensor. Have you changed your fuel filter? Checked all vacuum lines? Any check engine light on?

1991 Corsica dies after being put in gear.


Hi

You need to get two things checked. Ignition and Fuel.

Ignition: typically in this order ... Start off from sparking plugs ,,, move to leads (get them changed) and on to the ignition coil if there is no spark coming out of it. In case of fuel, the carb needs a clean and a good carb cleaner or fuel treatment (added to the fuel tank) wont do any harm. You should open up the carb filter. Remove it and change it if its dirty. Start the engine rev it up and while its revved up (throttle flap open) spray the carb cleaner or in this will clean the carb cleaner from inside. If the power gradually increases its a clear sign that you need to open up the carb and get the jets cleaned. properly.

Hope that this fixya will get you on the roads soon :)

Regards :)
