Windshield wipers stop straight up when turned off, just started today, 30,000 miles on 1998 vette. Could not locate a repair manual.

1) car stumbles at about 1500-2000rpm under load like its about to stall (sometimes does) also there is knocking coming from the valve train
2) does not happen in neutral
3) catalytic converters were replaced two weeks ago as were vacuum hoses (visable ones)
4) cleaned throttle body and removed debris from radiator screen
5) Air cleaner is in good condition

Car run good

This message flashes three times and then returns to normal display. This cycle repeats itself at approx. one minute intervals.

won't even run after warmed up ran and stalled just starts and stall can't keep a idle. then when it cools down it will start up run ok for a while then stall at stop lights if in drive and not moving or gasing the pedal have had my fuel pump replaced just recently the idle control valve replaced which made it worse now it stalls after running getting to running temp, new plugs new wires new caatalytic convertors new knock sensor amoung other things i just keep paying for service and parts and my car still isnt running right I can barely drive anywhere without getting stranded

I have 132,000+ miles. The problem is intermittent. I checked plug wires and they appear fine. My air filter does need replacing. I replaced the plugs at around 110,000 miles with NKG plugs.

I realize I SAID the year was a 1990, but in order to have my question submitted that was the oldest option given. Sorry

Engine is LT1. Transmission fluid is leaking from rear of transmission.
Thank you.

guy says exgirlfriend stole key. can he start it without key?

New issue. Recently fixed no low beam issue by replacing wire in fuse box. Worked perfectly. Drove approx 200 miles no issue till returned home. Noticed air getting warm,gauge and dic temperature rising 248!!! Also noticed check engine light on.Checked coolant level,was not low and saw nothing comming out from under carriage.

now it wont pass inspection i want to know if this is a defect, i think it is thanks mary

it feels like the switch isn't disengaging when I press the brake pedal. repeatedly pressing and releasing the brake pedal doesn't seem to work, but sometimes when I turn off the engine, open the door, close the door and restart the engine it works. Nothing seems to work all of the time.....

but now has no power when you hit the gas.also dies how do i fix the problem

Specifically the code is "Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor voltage is too low." I'm reading that it may be a vacuum problem. Does anyone know where to start with this repair?

The car has 42K miles and the following have been replaced in the last 2 months: MAF x2, plugs, wires, distributor, coil, battery, throttle position sensor, PVC valve and the engine computer. I also have a new fuel filter to put in.

I've got a check engine light and the erratic running engine symptoms. I'd appreciate any help.

car would shut down untill it cooled down then would restart.code p1351 icm was only code. i replaced the icm which solved the problem but the service engine light is still on and still reads that code and wont reset whith scanner.

I replaced the ignition cylinder and determined the vats key. The engine turns over but won't start. Seems to be a fuel issue. Can't hear the fuel pump come on. Is it connected to the vats or is it another issue?

The compartment around my gas cap retains water. No water has entered the engine but I'm worried that this could happen.

car sat for 6 months in garage this winter.Was idling rough when started.WOULD NOT RUN was towed to Chevy shop.

Car has same performance as always.

head lights rotate fine in and out lights work fine

any problems with knock sensor

Still won't clear 3 monitors.

What else could be the cause? I find it hard to believe that all 3 batteries were bad! There has to be something else causing the battery to be completely dead after 3 days!y

My wipers won't work! Neither does the windshield washer. I changed the wiper fuse. Then I changed the wiper control/ cruise control/ signal/ lever. Then I changed the switch that the wiper/signal lever connects to and still nothing. I changed the circuit board on the wiper motor. I bypassed everything by grounding the motor and connecting the battery positive directly to the motor and IT WORKED. Which leads me to believe that it might be more than just the motor. I'm completely stumped! I'm not crazy about letting strangers (mechanics) touch my little girl, but I will if I have to. My biggest question is, is it possible for a bad washer pump to cause the entire system to fail?
