LT1 93 has little faults to accererate hard from low rpm, like "doubts". Keeping on high rpm acceleration is ok. Only 6k miles.


Very hard to say what is wrong, do you have any kind of car history like if the waterpump was leaking or replaced? If so like my 1994 vette the pump is in the front of opti-spark 99.9 percent of the time the water will ruin the opti. I have replacement mine many times, mainly because of the waterpump. if you replace pump you Must change opti-spark, its right there in open after you take out pump.it will save you 4 hours labor time.

the icm, coil, and crank sensor all read off the opti. Chances are you have a bad optispark (distributor). I just went thru the same issue and found it to be the problem.

I need to replace a distributor in my 94 z28 Camaro, was told it was going to cost $1100 because I HAD to have an AC Delco distributor since it is a high performance engine and will not run right using...


drsinister69 Is an idiot if u dont know nothing about camaros dont post. The opti spark is behind the water pump but they are sealed that way they do not get moisture in it at all. but if the plug in is not all the way in it could get water inside. to change this out all u have to do. Is take off the fans, take off the balancer pulley, take off water pump, then use a 10mm socket and take off the distributor but make sure it is up on number 1 to get it in time or it wont start

Car spits and pops like the points are bad in a 60s car.no power


Yes these optispark systems had all sorts of problems in wet weather most of the time you could replace the cap portion and that would solve it but most of the time I would replace the whole thing including new plug wires, coil wire,and spark plugs .Due to the fact that you have to remove water pump to access opti spark

1992 Corvette won't start




Disconnect the + wire Coils Take #1 Spark Plug Out Get a helper Use Compression Guage if not Available, Just put your finger over the Spark Plug Hole, have help BUMP the Starter over till You can Feel The Compression at your finger you need #1 at TOP DEAD CENTER on its Compression STROKE Fine tune it by using a STRAW in the Plug Hole to feel the PISTON Move UP To VERY TOP Dead center----------------------------------This is Tricky but don't Loose these Instructions------- If you have the OPTI_SPARK Ignition System My Books show all about it but Nothing on the Timing "MARK" as this is the step I Stoped at Above.. Coil Pack Ignition Will Have a Timing MARK On the Lower Harmonic Balancer. Point Being if Mark is NOT on the Degree Indicator It has JUMPED TIMING<< Surly on a Coil Pack Ignition System BUT
-------- The Opti Spark system if there is NO Timing Mark to Go by I Would Suggest Breaking Down and Letting A DEALER Handle it Unless You Can RULE that it HAS JUMPED TIME------------------------------------------------------------------------I Truly Hope I've shed some Light on Your Delima and this Leads you to a Smooth running Chevy. PLEASE don't forget to Rate Me ------------------------------------P.S. The Opti - Spark System Has A BAD REPUTATION Just FYI Recall - Opti-Spark Distribtor, Stall/No Start, Code 16 Notes
