It's fuel injected? Thats interesting...... I would think it would be TBI or have a carbureted. Sounds to me like it has an injector stuck open. Maybe even a couple. Try running a really concentrated fuel injector and fuel system cleaner in it. BG works well. Seafoam is ok, but not as good as the BG stuff.

Yea , those crossfire injection vettes can be a bear sometimes . I had dealings with them 84-85 - 86 working as a tech at a chevy dealer . Don't remember much about them , haven't heard anything about them for long time .

How's the fuel pressure ? Have you put a fuel gauge on it ? I would imagine you don't have a Tech 1 scan tool ? What's the map sensor voltage at idle ?

My 1986 GMC Vandura With a 305 and rochester Q Jet Idles Rich and after it warms up looses power and floods out stalling where ever it feels like. Please Help,

Possibly a hole in the float . ( carburator) You'll have to take the carb apart and remove the float. Shake it and see if there is gas in it. If it's not a brass float, you may just need to adjust it, and clean the carb.

Continuing to crank the engine, without touching the accelerator pedal should "unflood" the engine. Remember that what floods is the combustion chamber, where the spark plugs are, not the carb itself. If the flooding was really severe, maybe the plugs are unable to make sparks. Take out the plugs, leave them out for an hour (to allow gasoline to evaporate out of the cylinder chambers) and put fresh plugs in. Good luck.

The 1984 Toyota 4x4 pickup truck will not idle

On a 1984 Toyota I would look for a screw to set the low speed idle on the carburetor, if so equipped. Turn the screw until the RPMs are reasonable.

If you can maintain a smooth idle by adjusting the screw your home free.

If not, then there could be other problems with your vehicle's emission, ignition, comprression, or fuel.

New carberater and a mechanic needed!

Even if you do it yourself you need to adjust it.I would get another mechanic to look at it also.Have you tried cleaners? 1 type you add to the gas the other you remove the air bonet and spray into the top of carb while running (have someone press on the gas lightly so you don't stall.Have you tried to increase the idle via the adjusting screw? has the auto choke been tested..adjusted? Good Luck.

Taillight lense removal on 84 vette

If I remember you need to remove them from laying on the ground and going in from under the car behind the bumper. Some models did have 2 screws on the front the older ones had to be removed from behind the bumper.

1984 Rabit loses power while going up an incline

Fuel pump and injectors are plugged. Any time a car sets with gas in it the gas separates and will varnish the fuel pump and injectors and possibly cause a fire just like a Vette I had to work on had the same problem. That means new fuel pump and filter and possibly injectors.
