1991 Chevrolet Camaro Repair Question
Chevrolet Camaro Engine Problem
DID YOU SNATCH THIS OUT AND CLEAN IT AND THE HOLE IT WAS IN?
KEEP US POSTED
Yes i did a little bit. Is that bad?
NEGATIVE (WAS HOPIN' YOU HADN'T TRIED IT YET--AND THIS BE THE CURE!)---IF IT WERE ALL CARBON-ED UP (EVEN IN THE HOLE) AND YOU GOT IT ALL CLEAN
THIS MIGHTA BEEN YOUR PROBLEM......MAYBE YOU DIDN'T CLEAN IT ENOUGH?
IT ALSO MIGHT BE THAT THE PART IS BAD.......IF CLEANING IT WELL MAKES ANY IMPROVEMENT----YOU MIGHT THINK ABOUT REPLACING IT
PULL THE EGR AND GIVE IT A GOOD CLEANING TOO....CAN'T HURT
I AM NOT SAYING TO SPEND YOUR $$$ JUST TO "PARTS SWAP"
HERE'S MY EXPERIENCE WITH A FOR COUNTERPART
LET ME KNOW--BEFORE YOU BUY STUFF---I CAN MAYBE HELP YOU SAVE A LITTLE
Okay i will do that and let you know. Where is the egr located?
SEE IF YOU CAN FIND THIS ON YOUR ENGINE
SHOULD JUST SORTA SMACK YOU IN THE FACE!
SOMETIMES CARBON IS SORTA GRAY IN COLOR AND MAY APPEAR TO BE PART OF THE ENGINE CASTINGMAKE SURE YOU CLEAN ALL THAT YOU CAN
Alright i will find that and clean it up and then i will get back to you as soon as i do that. Thank-you!
Okay, so i took both of those parts off and cleaned them. It helped a little bit but not much at all. It stil isnt close to idling. It is a little bette when you lay your footin it but it stll bogs out.
I'LL SEE IF I CAN FIND ANOTHER EXPERT TO ASSIST
At the throttle stop screw, place a piece of thin card board in between and test if the idling speed stabilises. If yes, you might need to adjust the throttle stop screw ( not advised nor required under normal circumstances).
