Question about 1995 Chevrolet Camaro
The 3.4 L engine is problematic. My Camaro started overheating intermittently and my mechanic said he was afraid the head gasket was going. Hoping that it was anything else, I replaced everything in the cooling system from the radiator back. It kept overheating, but not consistently. Some days it ran fine and other days it ran into the red zone before the engine was even warm. And despite not leaking, it was down about a quart of water every time I drove it. Finally, it started running rough and eventually it was undrivable. It was in fact the head gasket -- a common problem with that engine. You can't replace the engine; Chevy doesn't support it any more, there is no crate engine that fits and the cost of replacing the head gasket is close to or exceeds the value of the car, since most mechanics want to drop the engine and tranny out the bottom to get at it. I got lucky and found someone who did the work without droppng the block and had the heads remilled. It still cost over a grand, but I love my car so much that I would have replaced it anyway. I've been driving it for close to two years since then. At 188K, I know it's not going to last forever, but the last gen Camaro is the last beautiful American car and driving it gives me so much pleasure that it's worth it. Good luck.
