Question about 1993 Chevrolet Corvette

1 Answer

I have a 93' LT 1. for the past couple of days ive had a serious problem with my car. it was working fine on sunday, i washed it up, i needed to get the dirt/gravel out of the wheel wells (the motor was running anytime water is sprayed under the hood). Everything was still fine. When i was getting ready to leave approx an hr later she started rite up no problem but, as soon as i got her on the highway she started sputtering really bad. I thought ok well maybe a lil water mayhave gotten in somewhere. i brought it home put a lil dry gas in the tank and just let her sit and idle for a while. well everything was fine till a half hr of idling i gave her a rev and she just stalled out. and to make this shorter ive been trying to get her started ever since. i dont know what else to do!! ive checked and double checked every connection everything!!

Sounds like water in distrubutor cap - pull cap and check for moisture/carbon arcing (gray lines )- engine got hot- water evaporated of back of block- got into cap thru vents on bottom- no escape when cool- repeat

I need firing order on 1998 Suzuki swift on plugs and cole pack

;post engine sizes? they used 3 engine, or more world wide
if it has a 4 wire pack the engine firing order is fixed by ecu
but the COIL PACK must not be scrambled.
replace wires 1 by 1. (if new pack, mark old first)
if lost the org. pack is marked, 1,2,3,4 , if not you need
the marks, out of FSM or maker of new coil.
here is the list of engines, ;pick one>?

1.0 L G10 (LP2) I3
1.0 L G10T (LS3) turbo I3
1.3 L G13A/BA (L72) 8V I4
1.3 L G13B/G13K 16V DOHC I4
1.5 L G15A 16V I4
1.6 L G16 16V I4

if you cant use to see that.
or cant use suzuki pit stop plus for $4
then google for your engine. and pray.

i can guess, because i can see the 2 coils there. in pack
and they are in series like this
1 <><><><><><<4 (series wound) the plastic case telsl me. this.
2><><><><><<> 3.
or group 2

see? so try 1 ontop, run ok
try 1 in group 2.
this is called wasted spark
1 and 4 fire together.
then 2 and 3 as one;
so if 1 is connected right and 2,
then 2 and 3 must work if 1 fires right, see?
as you can see only #1 maters. if you now the coil end to end wiring.

tell country and engine, and all this is 100x more easy.
but ive never ever had to look it up.
the coil packs are obvious wired a certain way.
all in 2 guesses.

My engine is locked any suggestions on how to free it ive already put oil in it and it has been sitting for a couple days

hi there. oil might be a bit to thick to penetrate past the piston rings.
i should try using something like WD40. or similar. good luck.

Background: '98 intrepid (170k) has been running fine over last 4 problems. It has been kept in the garage through the winter when not used. For the past 5 days it has been kept outside in...

You don't say what engine is in it (2.7 or a 3.2) but you need to check to see if it is getting spark at the plugs-it may be the crank sensor, weak links in Chryslers of this era. pull a plug just to be certain it is getting gas, but I'd guess it is a crank sensor.

I have a 91 has the 2.3 ran fine then stopped one day when iwas leavin the house...i havent been able to get it to start unless...i spray starting fluid into the intake...ive changed...

i dont think you car wants to leave your house.... maybe your injectors are bad, if the chamber is getting too much fuel you could be flooding it, and if that gas gets past your rings you have bigger problems

Lots of gas

I think that the problem comes from the alternator.
