Question about 1994 Chevrolet Corsica

1 Answer

I have a 1994 Chevy Corsica with a 3.1 liter engine. The engine dies every so often when it hot and wont restart until 4-5 minutes later. Have checked vaccum lines, map sensor, and replaced temp sensor. I also completly flushed cooling system. It seems to have helped the car run a bit cooler but it still dies. What else can I check?

    I have responded to your question but I dont think I answered it very well let me try again. I dont know about the intial idle flare up. To be honest I am not sure about what your asking. It dose have the 3.1 liter multi port injection system.

The idle flare up is when u start it the rpms go above normal idle speed for about 3-5 seconds then comes down to normal idle speed,if this car is stalling in park then all u need to do is remove the air cleaner from the throttle body and clean the the throttle blade and bore with a rag with some throttle plate cleaner on it that u can buy in a spray can at all auto parts stores and also take the idle control solenoid offhte side of the throttle body which is near the oil cap and has 2 t20torx head screws holding it on and clean the cone shaped plunger on the end of it with the same cleaner,after these two things are cleaned,reassemble the air cleaner and take it for a short ride so it can relearn idle,hope this helps

Where is the starter located on a 1996 v4 engine Chevy Corsica

There is no V4 engine. I assume you are referring to an 2.2 Liter inline 4 cylinder. If you will follow the red positive (+) battery cable it will go directly to the starter.

1996 chevy corsica,2.2 oil pressure DROP when hot????

dont run it anymore!!!
check oil is reaching the rockers & that there are no blocked feeed holes !
the pump may have been fitted too loose or the gaket is not sealing creating a pressure drop!
it may have some of the old bearing material enter the gallery,s & or the pump!
good luck Cheers Rob

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