1996 Chevrolet Corsica Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1996 Chevrolet Corsica based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
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.
One or more of the fuel injectors may short out electrically causing a rough idle condition.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.
The steering rack may develop a fluid leak or fail causing the steering to become hard to turn.
The PCV vacuum hose under the upper intake plenum may become brittle and crack causing an engine vacuum leak.
The rubber section of an automatic transmission cooler line may develop a fluid leak . In some cases the leaking section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this concern.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.
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.
