1996 Chevrolet Corsica Problems

Leaking Water Pump May Cause Coolant Loss and Overheating

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.

Torque Converter Clutch Can Stick After Extended Freeway Driving

The torque converter clutch can stick "on" after extended freeway driving causing the engine to stall when coming to a stop. Our technicians tell us when this occurs, the engine usually will restart and stall when put into gear. After allowing about twenty minutes for the engine and transmission to cool down, the engine will start and the transmission will operate normally. Replacing the torque converter clutch solenoid, transmission filter, and fluid will generally correct this issue.

High Pressure Power Steering Hose Can Leak Fluid

The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.
