Question about 1996 Chevrolet Corsica

1 Answer

1996 Chevy Corsica

My problem is that the car will run really good when it is first started. I drive approximately 45 minutes to work each day. When I leave for work it is fine. When I leave to go home it is fine. After the car gets warm and you shut it off it will not start. It tries to turn over but won't. If you leave it sit for about 2 hours it will start and run good again. I have been stranded many of times. For instance on Saturday I went to town. I had been driving about 30 minutes. I shut the car down and it would not start for about 2 hours. I have been told this could be a number of things, I am the sole supporter for a family of 4 and really can not afford to be nickeled and dimed to death trying to figure out what it is. Has anyone else had a similiar problem?

Well, something idoesnt like to be warm in it, ive seen this caused by multiple things, but most commonly its the starter going out it gets warm from the engine running and the brushes expand and short, cools off brushes shrink and VOla Vrooom Vroom!

So id start with the starter

You will not be successful replacing just the switch. Cars with delay wipers utilize different wiper motors, and wiring harness's than cars without.

Chevy Corsica blower motor does not work


Hello...

Your problem can also be a bad blower resistor. But, the replacement of either the resistor or the motor is not hard at all.

Good Luck...

I have a 1996 chevy corsica , I have replaced all gaskets, timing chain is timed, new map sensor, alternator is good battery is good, I can get the car to start but it shuts down after a couple mins then...


Is your fuel pump working & if it is when did you change the fuel filter last? Did you move fuel line close to a heat source? I.E. exhaust manifold rad hoses etc. You could be experiencing vapour lock. Insolate fuel line with fuel line protecter material.

1996 chevy corsica,2.2 oil pressure DROP when hot????


dont run it anymore!!!
check oil is reaching the rockers & that there are no blocked feeed holes !
the pump may have been fitted too loose or the gaket is not sealing creating a pressure drop!
it may have some of the old bearing material enter the gallery,s & or the pump!
good luck Cheers Rob
