Chevrolet Caprice QuestionsRefine by vehicle
If I'm driving and start to slow down my car cuts off
use of b12 or gas treatment before each fill up, good or bad?
when I bought the car the previous owner mentioned it needed a heater core. upon a closer look, I noticed it was not holding water after long periods of travel. as soon as the car was shut off it would leak antifreeze. that is when I saw that the heater core lines had ben cut about 3" coming from the core and firewall itself. I also found the hose was missing that went to the block itself. I plugged the two hoses for now and fixed the hose that should have been going into the block and no more fluid leak, but I still need to get a heater core ASAP
half to let it sit bout 5 min before it runs right
it will start, run for about 2 sec, then dies. if i disconnect the temperature control sensor it will start and idle perfectly for about twenty seconds then dies. Whats the problem, i just replaced the temp- control sensor, the fuel filter, and the o2 sensor is only 6 months old.
I have a 1989 Chevy caprice I have replaced the steering column and the starter and for some reason the car won't start I have also replaced fuel pump, all computer chips and ignition module, I really need some help so if u could give me some advice on why the car won't start I would appericate it.
sometimes when I tried to accelerate high speed, knocking on engine comes and when i'm parked for almost 30 minutes while engine still running, the water coolant light indicator appear on the dashboard. it means the engine is overheating.
Gas gauge not working nor is the fuel light
It cranks right up but if it sits in one spot for about 10 minutes it will shut off by itself then we will have to let it sit for hours before it will crank back up....
the car rides fine, until the engine is completely warm which causes check engine light to come on. If you turn car off and crank up without waiting or you can wait, check engine light is off and car rides fine again until check engine light comes back on. Then it loses power and blogs all over again.Changed wires, plugs, filters, do not no what else to do can anyone help please. Thank you God Bless.
The light works from time to time.Can you please help me with this problem?
On cold starts, the car is fine in the idleing, or park position, but when I drive it before letting it heat up there is a knocking/grinding noise coming from the rear of the car. The more I drive it, it stops but then I start having shakeing when applying the brakes and rough idling.
I replaced water pump, thermostat and coolant. I have little but some heat. blower works fine just minor heat coming from the blower. in heat mode and also in defrost
I've checked all the fuses and harnesses for fuel pump and injectors and the they're good. Problems occured when I got the intake gaskets switched out for new ones. Initiallly the timing was not set correctly after the guy put everthing back together. After I got that fixed what seemed to be a bad fuel pump turned out to be no electricity getting to the fuel pump. What other steps can I use to solve this problem?
car & engine running great. water pump just replaced. coolant flush recent. no engine code. heater valve is new. heater core is NOT leaking.
so what is ther next thing i should do?
Do I need to remove it? What might happen if I leave the extra 2 quarts in?
It happens all the time. It acts like it doesn't want to start sometimes too.
I have to put a gallon of water in the radiator everytime I drive it and it looks like it is still leaking from the same area could a water pump go bad that fast
Its a v8 and if somebody can quote how much it cost to change a head gasket on it Id appreciate it
Car turns on stays at idle once I test drive it stalls after I stop and accelerate again. Check engine code indicates it could be camshaft actuator position sensor. My car is not equipped with that particular sensor. Need help any suggestions.
light work blinkers work tail lights work no head lights help please
Live in Bahrain, since rainy day water splash and engine switched off; opened trunk wait 10 min then restarted but exaust exploded so: substituted exaust but since then problems by switchon of the car especially cold night and hot morning so always park in the sun and there is no problem to switch on. But car switches off by driving slow. They told me gearbox should be serviced (gaskets leak); by adding missing oil in steering the problem ended but now despite regular check/backfill problem starts again: until now thy always toted the distributor. Can be the carburator? air/oil filter refr. for engine ok. In addition the alarm boing that comes if engine off and lights on, comes also by engine on, permanently. Have a Montecarlo1982 too and addicted to chevy so want to learn cause not many specialist mechanics here but if you have any contacs of specialists here or Saudi Arabia most welcome. Thanks
i have oil leaks that are starting to affect the spark plugs and also the way my car drives this has started last week
summary: i have lost all power to my car like there is no battery in it, this is after i had changed plus wires due to a miss fire! prior i had changed the spark plugs.. then a dist cap, rotor button and then a whole dist.. since then i put a starter on. i took the hot cable off the battery before removing, now i have no power and no clue. i have checked fuses and replaces all 30amps. anyone have a answer! i would highly grateful..
The car rarely starts on the first try. It can take anywhere from 2 to 20 tries before the car will start. It sounds like something spinning when it won't start right away. When it does start, it cranks properly and we are on our way. Can you give some ideas as to what might be causing this?
The bolt on the inside of the control arm bar broke recently on my caprice. I was hoping I could just replace the bolt but after looking the area over it seems impossible. The problem has caused my driver side wheel to slant inward and steering has become tight. I stopped driving it the moment I heard the bolt break.
i kinda hit a car that was in front of me, not to hard tho but my chrome bumper is pushed in a lil , how can i fix it to it looking good?
it dont get hot at all
