Chevrolet Corsica Problems
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 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.
Chevrolet Corsica Questions
Can someone tell me what the average vacuum reading should be on a 1996 Chevy Corsica 3.1? Mine is only showing 15hg. Thanks
I notice today that i can hear the pump but once i get home my car shuts off. So i turn it over but wont start. I dont hear the pump. But if i tap the tank it starts running my fuel pump. It sounds like a bunch of hornets in my tank.
The knock sensor broke off when it was being removed from the block, the threads are still there and have been filed down. Working space is very limited..difficult to reach. How can the remaining threads be removed?
