Question about 1992 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

No spark in my 1992 Chevy Camaro RS 3.1L engine rotates but doesn't engage.

Hi can someone please help me with some troubleshooting advice for my 1992 Chevy Camaro RS 25 Anniversary 3.1L standard shift? My engine rotates but does not engage. I have fuel and there is spark at my ignition coil. Also the engine rotates extremely fast when I do try to start it. I have already put in a brand new distributor, ignition coil, spark plugs, had the timing chain checked (it is top dead center). My question is could this problem have anything to do with the crankshaft knock sensor or the clip wire that the sensor attatchs/plugs in to? Please any help is greatly appreciated. Aloha, Candie

Hi Candie, if you have air, fuel and spark it should run. Getting to the fuel side-"is fuel getting into the engine?" Your ignition may work, your starter may work, fuel pump may work, but if you have an ignition key with a resistor inside it (little silver piece of metal in the plastic of the ignition key) the key, it could be bad and will shut down the fuel injector. It's part of the security system if some idiot tries to break the steering column to steal your car. It won't run.
I have a 92 Z28 with a 350 and I had to get a new ignition with resistor and correct resistor ohm key. About $400.00 bucks but if you search around Z28 forums there are ways to bypass this for less $$ if you want to.

The transmission is a 700r4 not really a size for this. what you probably mean is what gears are in the differential, these should be either 3.73 or 2.73 depending if manual or auto. (owner of a 92 rs with a 305)
