Question about Chevrolet Caprice Classic

1 Answer

Can you tune a stock 305 carburetor and if so how?

I just changed the headers on the motor and ran only straight pipes from the back. And i didnt want to purchase a new carburetor just yet and I heard there is a way to tune my stock one to push out a little more horsepower and to get it sounding better. Because it sounds like the carb is spitting out fuel hard almost louder than my exhaust.

Cold start


TUNE UP TIME. I-6 engine?
old spark parts JUST HATE water.
100 years, of this and same.
do the 60,000 mile tune up, called the service schedule. lost it?
we have it
cap ,rotor,wires, spark plugs, filters,. fuel and air.
i bet it runs now. (for sure, it has great chances)
id also check engine compression. for 150psi x 6 w.o.t.
mine, loved to crank the Exhaust manifold , and cause the
O2 sensor to go nuts. (but is not related to cold starts)
the cause was a broken exh, clamp, below the bell housing,
making the exh. pipe to wag like dogs tail, bending header and cracking it(mine had nice SST header stock)
that was the only bug in my jeep. I6
other than the monthly ISC sticking and cleaning (IDLE out of control)
i cured it. (ask)

How do i change a carborator


If you're vehicle is 84 or prior you may have a carburetor, (some models earlier or later by a few years) if you are asking about the van you have in the picture spot for the question that looks like 98-2004 ish Caravan, no way it has a carburetor. It would have a throttle body probably. If that isn't what you're working on you can check for an ID tag on the carburetor and order a new one (or a rebuild kit) and rebuild it or straight bolt on bolt off replace it. Most new carburetors come tuned to stock specs... so you shouldn't need to tune it once its on.

How do i find where an exhust leak is coming


check where the headers come off of the engine exhaust leaks are generally quite loud and you will either be at the headers/exhaust manifold or just as you come off that bend there will be a flange gasket inside the two pipes joining. from the bend to the straight pipe just as it passes the gearbox and starts to straighten out.

ABS light and check engine light is on. Not stock engine by a long shot. recent. cam, mass air set up, th350 trans, heads, headers, pipes etc. o2 sensors have been replaced. Does the computer need to...


I have a 95 Trans Am myself, with a worked 383 lt1 with full bolt ons. etc Your using the factory tune with that setup? While the check engine light might not be on because of the factory tune i would strongly suggest at the least, getting a mail order tune, and if you can, a dyno tune. You're not seeing the full potential of your setup the way it is now. Are you using an aftermarket mass air flow sensor? The stock mass air flow sensor flows plenty for most setups. Aftermarket sensors can cause driveability issues and many suggest staying away from them.
Are you able to scan the computer to retrieve the codes? It's impossible to diagnose the check engine light without knowing why it's on.

Honda engine lacks power, no torque


check your compression, may be a cylinder misfire check wires and spark plugs, possibility it could be a valve dropping or improper seal within the head or block

Mufler/Exhaust


I recommend headers, with 2 1/2 inch true duel pipes, feed it to an aftermarket cat, a must have, with all O2 sensors, then run Your pipes into some cherry bomb glasspacks, then run it out to either comming out just in front of or just behind the tires, with a turndown right before the quarterpanel wall.
