Chevrolet Caprice QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My 1989 chevy Caprice has a bad flex joint in the tilt section of the steering column. can I change just the knuckle or do I have to change the entire column?
When first start a cold engine and put the car in drive I get a noise that sounds like an exhaust leak. It only last for the first minute or two and goes away. I put the trans in neutral while moving and raced the engine and no noise. Put it back in drive and the noise comes back.

For the past two months, my 'service engine soon light' has been rarely flashing on and off. However, the light does not stay on nor does it appear after I've started my engine and has driven for a while. When the light does appear, it will only be on for a minute or less than that. Im really confused because I need to know if it's a sign of a serious problem so that I can get it fixed.
My car engine is now 350 and the pipes are from my old engine and need to be welded on to fit.
How much should this cost? and where can I get this done?
I have a 1978 Chevy Caprice Classic(WOULDN'T DATE BACK TO THE SEVETIES), 305 5.0 engine, 350 Transmission. It wouldn't go into reverse out of the blue one day, so I replace the strainer and fluid. It went into reverse and shifted perfectly fine untill the next day. My reverse acts like neutral, and neautral acts like drive. I have to turn the engine off and push my car in reverse myself to park it
What could be the problem my car goes in reverse sometimes and rarely when its cold out side? Would it be a trans solenoid? Bout how much to fix that problem? And has an exhaust leak and is the only option replacing it? And ballpark estimate for that! Thank u!
My car ran out of gas so it sat up in the cold for about 4 days before I refilled the tank. After my car was refilled I put gumout in to clean my carburator and fuel injectors, I also put some heet in to absorbs any water that may be in the gas line. it ran good for a day and now it won't even start up. Everything on it is new except spark plugs in wires. Can someone explain what the problem may be? One person told me to drop my gas tank and unfreeze the line! While another person said to change my spark plugs and wires!!! What do you think??
AFTER FINDING OUT I PUT WRONG FLUID IN MASTER CYLINDER, CAR STARTED ACTING FUNNY. CAR MOVES WHEN COLD, BRAKES GET HARD, CAR WON'T ACCELERATE PASS 30MPH, THEN IT STOPS MOVING. 2-3 HOURS LATER CAR WILL MOVE. WHAT SHOULD I DO
my chevy caprice overheated lastnight and now it want crank
do I have to take the tilt steering apart to change the ignition rack gear
Ok, so I first noticed this problem a couple of weeks after I installed new brake pads on the front of my car. At first, I thought the leftside caliper had siezed up, so I went ahead and replaced both calipers. That didn't solve the problem so I checked and replaced the front hoses and the rotors. To make a long story short, I pretty much re-did the whole brake system (including a re-built master cylinder). The only thing I didn't replace was the combination valve, steel lines, and abs module. I'm starting to think it might not be a brake issue. Can anyone please help me with this headache?
Trying to replace my master cylinder on my car. I have it attached to the booster but can't get the first line coming from the combination valve screwed in straight . I don't know if it is bent or something else.
I am not able turn the ignition key towards the ACC position, otherwise the ignition lock works fine.
Have the same problem on a spare steering column for my '72 Buick Riviera. A common problem!?
was driving along, in overdrive,& just wasn't going, moter racing, 143,000 miles on it,can still manuel shift, just not to overdrive, kinda hesitates whenput in drive & reverse,but will still eventually get inthere, happened all of a sudden,fluids are good
replaced distribitor and rotor, along with new head gasket. It fires up and runs now. added gas and found out that the hose on filler neck is dry rotted along with the return hose. Have been calling to replace these hoses and noone has them. Can someone point me in the right direction to find these hoses, or a repaire shop that want hurt the pocket.

I have a 1991 Chevrolet Caprice with 5.0 liter V-8 which has recently developed a hard starting problem, you have to crank the engine more than usual before it will start and it surges when idling after it starts and hesitates badly when trying to accelerate. Engine has been tuned recently, new spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, fuel and air filters. Engine runs excellent after it warms up. I found that it would start instantly with the coolant temperature sensor unplugged so I replaced that sensor and it made no difference. I suspect the throttle position sensor may be bad but I'd like some more info before i replace anything else. the car has 130,000 miles on it, and is in excellent, well-maintained condition. Any ideas ?
rear windows do not operate. lockout on drivers door does not affect operation.
The car has the 4.3 L V8 engine. No service Engine light is on.It will stumble on normal acceleration and at 45-55 mph but not when you step on it.I have put in fuel system cleaner.Also it will miss when in gear with the brakes on when the gas is applied.Is it more likely the optispark distibutor or a plug/wire issue or even a fuel line filter?EGR perhaps?...Help,I love this car...it hauls major @#$
