Hi...
why you don't check the fuel preesure.
Is 1 of the common problem on chevy's when they loss power.
Buy a CAN of Carburetor cleaner. and spray on tbi or carburetor.
With other guy inside of the car, with the car and drive give a litte gas. and if you feel diferent , is the fuel pump. if not.
Replace the fuel filter. On tbi. the fuel pump need to send 15psi. of pressure.
carburetor about 5 to 8 ..

I hope this help on your problem. or cam be a initial step to diagnostic.

What is the part number for a carrier bearing on 1995 chevy camaro


(a little late in responding - but maybe someone will need this info).

If you mean the carrier bearing on the driveshaft - then you must have a v6 model. I would advise to skip replacing it and instead purchase a 1pc shaft (no carrier bearing). The cb is located near a Hi-Speed CV Joint which make changing the carrier a little difficult.
A new replacement 1pc driveshaft costs about $225.00
The carrier bearing itself may run $40-$140. ( http://www.fortwayneclutch.com/index.php/driveshaft-parts/carrier-support-bearings/gm/1993-2002-chevy-camaro-v6-pontiac-firebird-v6-carrier-bearing-new-f-body-carrier-bearing-for-v6-models-pn-s-3r80-40.html ) - for reference...
You could also check a junk yard for a 1pc oem shaft (most shafts there are bent or have bad uj's and will cost $$ to have fixed )
>1994-2002 f-body models all have the same length from the seal of the transmission to the center of the uj @ the diff.
>when looking for an oem 1pc shaft you will find them in Steel and Aluminum. Slight differences in length when measuring center to center of the universal joints ( 40 7/8" - 40 1/2" ) - but the slip yokes vary in length, weighted / non-weighted..etc = this will make it appear the the shafts are different.
>>watch out for oem shafts with the weighted slip yoke from manual 6spd v8 models. This slip yoke may hit the trans/exhaust mount that is used on v6 models.!!

Just replaced plugs and wires on a 95 chevy camaro v6 now has no power


Sounds like you may crossed up some plug wires? use the diagram below to check this out as the poss problem. Match the numbers on the coil pack to the cylinder numbers. Cross wiring plug wires is the most common thing that home mechs do that they get wrong.

I had a cylinder 5 misfire on my 2002 chevy Camaro v6 3.8. I changed the spark plugs and the spark plug wires and the car runs great, until i give it alot of gas. If i accelerate too quickly now the car...


sounds like spark plug coil is bad. had the same problem on my truck also. check wich cylinder is misfiring and replace the coil and maybe the plug also. if the plug looks good leave it. autozone can give you a read out. when checking the coil, if it has a rust color to it its bad and needs to be replaced. 02 z28
