1996 Chevrolet Corvette Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue

Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.

Car Won't Start Because of Anti-Theft System That Uses Raised-Chip Key

Problems with anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The key and ignition lock cylinder should be replaced to correct this condition.

Check Engine Light With Code P1870

The transmission may develop a harsh 1-2 shift and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P1870 stored. This can be caused by wear of the bore for the TCC isolator and regulator valves in the valve body. This condition does not commonly occur until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature. If the valve body is worn, replacement will be necessary to correct this concern.
