I'm just trying to find out how to check my codes on a 1986 chevy celebrity. Check engine light comes on its a 6 cylinder 2.8
The water pump, power steering pump and ac compressor are taken off the car. I have original parts. This car has a automatic trans with 3 v belts. Altenator is mounted inplace it is on firewall side of engine. Ideler tention pulley is mounted to top side of motor. There is a pivot arm with parts. I am not sure how it all goes back together? THIS IS A 1986 CHEVY CELEBRITY 2.5 ENG. THANKS
My 1987 chevy celebrity will start. But i will put my foot on the break so i can put it in gear. And everytime we touch the break my car dies? I have changed the fuel pump already. Why is it doing this?
I will turn the ignition on and the engine instantly acts like it will start, and then it dies. After many attempts, it usually will turn over and run. While car is on, it runs normally.
if you spray carb cleaner it will run till you stop spray. have changed fuel pump, moduel, ecm have 52lb fuel pressure.
I have a 87 Chevy Celebrity when I drive it loses power and shuts off and then it's hard to start. Except when I unplug the map sensor the car starts. When I drive I have to keep pressing the gas petal so the car doesn't shut off. I have changed the fuel pump twIce, fuel filter, fuel strainer twIce, fuel relay, coil packs, spark plugs, map sensor.
I know how to adjust the valves i just need astarting point this is triump 68 if anybody can help thanks i had to put the year make & model in my question thanks
car won't start and fuel pouring out of the air cleaner there is no fuel in the fuel rail
I turned the car off and it started fine, but then a few feet down the road it cut off. This process repeated several times and it continued to cut off after going down the road. I have never seen this problem before. I took it to a shop and the problem never happened again. It may also be good to know that my car sometimes has problems starting. I have found that these starting issues occur fewer times if the gas tank is full. However, that is not always a solution. Any ideas or advice? Also, my car only has 54,000 miles on it. Until recently, it spent most of its life in a garage.

The car is actually an 88 Celebrity, with the 2.8...V-6....your forum doesn't allow for this selection...the car starts and drives but it will not shift pass 2nd gear, it does NOT stall and/or die. I have read much on how it may be the TCC, but without the car stalling, I'm not sure this is the issue.
