More than likely the heater valve is stuck open. You can usually purchase them from the local parts house. As far as the ride most of these cars ride this way. You can update the suspension with newer designs and shocks to allow a softer ride and can even get suspension that is adjustable allowing you to set the ride and performance yourself to your liking. Air suspension is probably also available to allow maximum soft ride.

1989 corvette, replaced mass airflow and still cuts out and then runs rough till it sits for a while. Took it to chevy dealer and mech said that another sensor was causing problem with the mass airflow...

on the back of the throttle butterfly is a sensor that controls the amount of fuel and it has carbon paths inside it ands i think this is the one causing your problem ,

it sounds like the torque convertor has a siezed stator or a problem inside the gearbox unless you have a engine ignition problem then it will give that problem when under load if its a gas engine check the plugs leads etc

My 206 1999 diesel which i have had from new has recently started with same electrical problem radio going off but still a light and all dials zeroing then returning back to normal paul from oldham

In my opinion there is a lose contact anywhere from battery to cabin fuse box. Check all the connections of Cabin fuse box, which is responsible for the supply of display and interior lights. Radio goes off but a main live wire always active for radio to retain the radio code, thats why there is a light although all other things go off.

Rough idle

The cam or crank sensor is going out when driving at high speeds. I would have those parts check, and have the fuel pressure check , fuel filter change to be on the safe side.

Good luck

There is a series of two videos addressing a very similar problem with a 1989 Corvette, first one diagnosis, second one fix. Seems like this is a not unusual problem for these older Corvettes. Check out the links.

Car will not start when inside interior gets extremly hot

Hi REast!

Does it turn over but not start and run, or does it not even turn over?

If it is the latter, there are some underdash electrical components that could be the problem.

The most likely problem is a fuse/relay box that is connected to a black wire with white stripe from the ignition switch on one post and a white wire with red stripe on the other that goes to either a neutral safety switch if automatic tranny, or clutch interlock switch if it is a manual tranny.

This is actually an automatically resetting circuit breaker, and it thermally (heat) activated, although the heat source is supposed to be a short length of resistance wire, not interior heat. If this is weak, or if it is exposed to extremely high temperatures, it will kill power to the starter.

Locate this device, and when you have this problem, jumper the two wires together and see if it will now start. If so, then that is the problem and replacement is called for.

Try that and let us know how it goes, and let me know if you have other questions or need further assistance.

Thanks and good luck!
