Chevrolet Caprice Reviews

I have a 1994 caprice and its the best car I have ever had. I have had a 1977 and 1980 and 1988 model and this is by far the best I have had. I have had it for almost three years and just the other week I had to replace the water pump, but before that and so far she ran and runs like a champ and purrs like a kitten, quieter than a sewing machine. so in love cant wait to put a little money in he...
i let this car sit up for a year now im putting it back on the road but it seems to have a knocking nosie in the motor what could be my problem.
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
