Chevrolet Caprice Problems
The idler arm or pitman arm may wear causing looseness in the steering. When this occurs the front suspension will not be able to be aligned correctly.
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.
The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
A burning smell may develop due to an oil leak form one or both valve cover gaskets. Resealing the valve cover will generally correct this concern. However, the valve covers should be inspected and replaced if damaged.

my 94 caprice is acting up it will run just fine for about 15 min then just die and wont start again until it cools off and does the same thing
I own a 1994 Chevy Caprice. I brought it with a bad transmission 3 years ago and rode that transmission for 3 months. I love these cars so much I started a club called The Bowtie Boys we now run around with a 1991,1992,1993, and 2 1994 Caprice. These cars are true classics
i have had a 1994 caprice for over 2 1/2 years now the best car i have ever had the only thing i have had to change on it was the radiator $145 for it and i did the labor myself in about an hour and a half it has 192k on it and it seems to be running likes its brand new i really wish they made cars these days like they use to then
Greatest year of Caprice- 1996! Of course, I am biased because I own that year. However, I do suggest you not go to southern florida looking for hard to find parts. I went to the wrecking yard to find a fender from where some jerk hit me while parked. THERE WERE NONE TO BE FOUND. The only complaints I have are electronic distributor being underneath the water pump. HELLO???? It's way worse than carbon tracking! Not to mention the amount of time it takes to pull that sucker out yourself, because (let's face it) shops are a arm, leg, and two eyebrows. My second would be the scissor tracks guides for the windows. My front window suddenly sunk foward and jammed in the door. Pain in the ass to fix going eighty on the highway!!!! Secondly, if any of your doors take a ding from another vechicle or gas station pump barrier, say good bye to those track guides. Otherwise, I love kicking butt on the open road in my baby!
I love my 1987 Caprice (Police Package). I've had it for 20 years, and it has 306,000 miles on it. It's solid, easy to fix, and VERY roomy.
