Question about 1996 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

I have a 1996 V6 Camaro, and last year it started to kind of stall when i was driving but would quickly recover again. Basically it would **** to a stop and then keep going as if nothing was wrong. I changed the O2 sensor in it because I thought that was the problem, it ran fine for a few days and then the problem continued, could it be the throttle positioning sensor thats wrecked?

I have same problem, I have 96 Camaro V6. Engine will miss at idle while stopped at light and seem ready to stall but won't stall. Also while driving engine will miss and seems transmission is slipping. My problems in these areas getting worse. Car has 44,000 miles. For what I paid for this car new ($16,000) I must say it has had many problems.

How easy is it to use a 2005 v6 3.8 in a 1997 rs camaro


Well to start with, the last year for the gen 4 Camaro was 2002. So what is the 2005 engine supposed to fit ? It would have to be for a rear wheel drive car, and even then I doubt it would bolt up to a mid 1990s chassis and transmission. Especially the electronics and exhaust.
A salvage yard would have the interchange books to tell you how many years would fit your model.

Hi

If your car stalled while you were driving it, look for an obvious reason first. Check to make sure you have fuel in the tank (if your gas gauge is working). Do not sit there and crank the car over, trying to get it to start, as you will quickly wear down the battery if it's not already bad.
Check the probable causes for this kind of problems:-
Ignition
The ignition system is composed of: ignition switch, neutral safety switch, security bypass, plugs, wires (if applicable) and a coil, or in the case of coil-over systems, many coils. The ignition is also tied into the computer. The crank and cam sensors tell the engine where top dead center is. Though these sensors do not usually cause a no start, if they break, the computer will go into "limp home mode," which allows you to get the car to a service station. The car will run badly, and may stall out on you. If the plug wires, plugs or coils are bad and are causing the engine to misfire, the engine will run rough. This may also cause the car to stall when driving. Generally, it will start back up, but it may be difficult to keep the car running.
Fuel
The fuel system is composed of a fuel pump, fuel filters, and fuel injectors or a carburetor. Some cars have a throttle body---this looks similar to a carburetor and has only one or two fuel injectors in the middle of it. The injectors feed all of the cylinders. In a multi-port system, each cylinder has its own injector. Should the fuel pump go bad, the car will stall while you are driving, as no fuel is getting pumped up to the engine. Bad injectors in a multi-port system will make the car run rough, which can cause a stalling situation, but generally, the car will restart.
Other Problems
There are other problems that can make a car stall---in the ignition system, the fuel system or in the drivetrain. If the timing belt breaks, the car will stall. If the computer itself stops working, the car will stall. Neither item will allow a car to start back up until it is repaired.All vehicles have an idle air motor or valve. The idle air is governed by the computer and changes the idle. When you turn on the air compressor, you use some engine resources. This makes the idle speed on the engine drop. The computer senses this drop and sends information to the idle air to turn up the idle so the car does not stall. If this part breaks, when you slow down to a stop or to turn a corner, the car may stall.
Because the running of a vehicle is complicated, there are many more things that can cause a vehicle to stall. These are the most common things that can cause a car to stall. Other things include wiring, fuses, relays, other sensors not working properly or at all, a bad alternator or a bad battery, or an overheating problem, just to name a few.

Most GM vehicles from the mid 80's to around the mid 2000's have this problem. The problem is the "antitheft" systems that GM has been using. The number one symptom of this problem is seeing a light on the dash that says SECURITY. Read this link for info on these systems and some DO IT YOURSELF ways to fix it forever.

Try replacing the oil sending unit, Some years had a fuel pump shut of built in to the switch so if the oil pressure went down it would kill fuel pump to stop engine damage. Yours may be faulty

Sounds like your throttle body and throttle plate are full of carbon.You also have a idle air control motor with a pintle on the end that gets carbon on them.Go to your local parts store and get a can of throttle body cleaner and a old tooth brush and clean throttle body and plate and if you can remove the IAC and clean the pintle and bore. that should take care of your stalling.
