Question about 1991 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

I just bought a 1991 camero, it passed the clean driving test. I took it out for my first drive and the sound of the muffler changed. I stopped, turned the car off and it wouldnt start again.5 minutes later it would start for a few seconds and then stall again . seemed to have over heating type symptoms. Now it won't start at all. Does any body know what this could be? I listened for the fuel pump it seems to be working!

I have had difficulty with this kind of thing since I have owned my 1991 camaro, back in 1996. First of all, the engine runs hot because the sensor opens the thermostat at a higher temperature. I fixed this by hardwiring the fan so that it is always on when the car is running. Second, I had to replace the water pump because it was not getting the coolant around the engine. Third, make sure your oil is not leaking out. Fourth, I have developed a leak in the gasket at the intake manifold, which is leaking coolant. I originally had a radiator that had so much **** in it that the coolant had trouble getting tot he engine. I believe that's what caused the gasket problem (just conjecture). The gasket will be taken care of during my smog repairs, which will be paid for by the state of California.
The latest thing that happened was that my battery and ignition decoder went out at the same time, causing clicking first and then not allowing me to start the car at all. With this ammunition, you can go armed with some things that may be wrong. Get a good mechanic, and see what he or she thinks (preferably someone who has worked on older cars and electronics).

Quite honestly, seek out a trusted muffler repair shop nearest you. They may have to replace if it is too rusted ($100-$150?) or with any luck they can weld it back into place ($25). Not dangerous (unless it falls off) but definately annoying!!

Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.

White smoke, at the first start of the engine and


Does it use any oil, or lose any coolant? If not, do you make a lot of short trips, then shut it off by chance? If your not using oil, or coolant, then I'd say take it on a long drive at highway speeds to drive out the moisture laying in your exhaust system. Recently had a muffler go on wife's car that does a lot of short trips, and old muffler was almost full of water from condensation and obviously poor exhaust design, that allowed it to build up like that. Took it next night on trip about an hour away. Every time I took off, or passed a car, white smoke rolled out the back. On way home, it stopped and cleared up.
