Sorry, its a 90 L98 w/ 130K on the clock. New water pump.

I looked at it a little last night and I think it is leaking at the T-stat neck and running across the intake mani then pooling there under the front runners on the passenger side. Someone before me had changed the t-stat using what looks like a whole tube of blue RTV on the neck!


I had the same problem when I installed a new water pump. The intake started leaking right by the front bolt on the drivers side, replaced the intake gaskets, all was fine.

Good luck w/ your problem.

Hello everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know that I started a job last week, and things are looking up. Hopefully, I'll be back in a vette in a few months. I am planing on looking for a ZR1.

Well, after 11 months w/ no job, I sold my Corvette. The new owner will pick her up on Friday. I think she is going to a good home, this is the new owners first Corvette, he really seems to love her, so that makes me feel better. It is sad, but I have to do it, like a friend said, I can't eat the car. I don't think I'll be around much, I'll just have to find other things to do w/ my time.

Pete,

I don't think you would be happy w/ just a rebuilt; go w/ the 406, or do what Joe recommends and go w/ the aftermarket block.

A 406 w/ AFR's and Super Ram would be a killer.

I have read most of the posts here in audio and there is lots of great stuff, but I was wondering if there is any list or recipe for the items that will be needed to install a Double DIN Nav/DVD 7" screen HU into a late model C4 (1994)?

for example -- speakers, cables, amps if needed,
I know I'm asking for turn-key install and it may not be that simple. I see that lots of people are doing different things, but what I'm looking for is the consensus of install designs that looks the best and sounds the best with minimal fabrication.

If this has already been covered (which I'm sure it has somewhere) please point me in the right direction.

Thanks


I have a complete high end system in my car, so I can help a little. Andy is correct about removing the interior, it will make it much easier. It would also be a good time to install some sound deadening, makes a big difference. As for a nav unit in a C4, a good person to talk to is Goldcylon over on CF, he has one in his car he did himself. Also, take a look at this. DIYMA
This is a great way to "raise" the soundstage in your car w/o cutting up the door panels or dash. I would then look at a good four way amp, (two channels up front, two in back for the subs). Subs in the rear are a must for good sound. As for front speakers, remember that because the front area of our cars is so small, you have to be careful that the front speakers you chose are not too "bright". If they are, they will sound shrill w/ the windows up. I had a set of Focal Kp2's in my car before the Cantons I have now, and the Focals were too bright w/ the windows up.
The web site listed above is a good place to look for advice, and you can get some good deals on used equipment there as well.

Good luck,

Randy

One thing to keep in mind is that at some point, there was a factory recall on the seat belts. Try calling a dealer near you and tell them of your problem. It could be that your car was never fixed, and the dealer will replace the seat belt for nothing.

When I have it in gear with the clutch in it doesn't creep. It appears to start engaging an inch or two off the floor (didn't pay that close attention).

I put her in the air to check the fluid levels since it does leak a little. The fluid in the manual side was white. It was Mobil 1 gear oil when it went in maybe 2 years ago. This was checked about 10 mins after I drove around in my driveway - no long trips.

I'm guessing white gear oil is not normal. What could be doing that and how do I fix it?

Just wanted to say thanks to Andy for pointing me towards Canton Pullman speakers. I just installed them in my car today in place of the Focal K2's that were in there, and man what a difference. Much better sound, not as harsh as the Focals can be in the upper ranges. Very smooth though out. I still need to turn down the gain on the amp, as these speakers seem much more sensitive then the Focals. I am also going to play around w/ the EQ on the deck tomorrow.

Thanks again, Andy.

I find that rather hard to believe, really.

You are still using the stock manifolds. If anything, I am wondering if the EGR solenoid failed.

With the older Vette's, wiring and vacuum lines become real problems. I don't know exactly how much diagnosis you did, but, if the vacuum is being pulled, and the EGR is open, I don't see how it will set a code.

The codes are set when the valve - a vacuum servo (dashpot) - is opened and indicated as such at the time the computer says so.

It doesn't really care about what volume of gas is going in.

Short of the EGR temp sensor, it's rather ignorant of the entire process.

How did you deduce this to be the problem?


First line, Andy.

As for the EGR, I don't give a damn if you drive the car 1 mile or 10000 miles a year, it has to pass the test regardless. So that becomes rather moot.

Is there an option to get the car tagged as a classic? It is nearly old enough.

I would also consider a fuel additive like Smog Check. That stuff does help... never know.


You did, Andy.

OK guys, lets clear up a few things.

If I could reinstall the EGR, I would. But I can't, because I would then have to go back to the stock chip, which would then turn the EGR back on. Doing this will cause the car to set a code on the dash, which would then cause the car to fail the test again. The idea is to have the car pass emissions. Remember that I only drive this car 4 or 5K per year, it is not my DD.
Finally, let me say that I don't appreciate people telling me I am misrepresenting the truth. My car is stock by choice, and it will continue to be that way. I have no interest in a 500HP engine in my car. The EGR and Air systems were removed because I had to do that for the dual exhaust system that I chose to installed. If I had known before hand what that would do, I would have just gone w/ a stock catback.

Thanks to Joe and CC.

Matthew


The O2 was changed when the new exhaust was installed, May of '07, about 10K miles since then. I think the timing needs to be checked, as the last time it was set was by "ear", so I'll do that next.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but, you removed the damned EGR.

That is EXACTLY what the EGR is designed to do. And it is why it is not your enemy.

As the engine heats, and the cats heat, the EGR comes into play to put a touch of exhaust gas back into the combustion chamber. That lowers the combustion temps, lowering the chance of detonation and the output of NOx.

NOx is a component of acid rain, by the way.

And guess what, removing EGR gained you exactly a zero HP improvement...

How to fix it? You might get away with a gas additive... but I doubt it.

I would reinstall the EGR and go from there. Seriously.


Andy,
The reason the EGR was deleted is because it set a code after the new exhaust system was installed. Everything was fine w/ it before the change, it seems that speed density cars need a certain amount of back pressure for the EGR to work correctly, so I really had no choice. That is the reason the car has a custom chip, to delete the EGR.

My car (1990 L98) recently failed it's emission test for high NOx. The is basically stock w/ 24lb injectors, true dual exhaust w/ cats, and a custom chip to delete the EGR, which has been removed. The car has a recent tune up, w/ new plugs, wires, cap, fuel filter. It had it's intake removed and resealed using FelPro gaskets last April. Other then that, the car runs great, w/ no problems at all. Mileage is about 102K.

The strange thing to me is that it was well within the limits of the other two categories.
This what the test said;
hydrocarbons 1.4000gpm -0.4612 pass
carbon monoxide 30.0000gpm -5.1493 pass
oxides of nitrogen 2.5000gpm -2.8883 fail

Anyone have any ideas as to why it failed?

BTW, I know that deleting the EGR is part of the problem.

Thanks, Randy

I have never liked the ruby color, I think silver would be very cool, but would stay away from the two tone. But like Midnight says, changing the color of a car is a lot of work. My first Corvette was a '65 coupe I changed from black to Ontario Orange. I had to basicly remove all of the interior, it was a PITA, I would never do it again.
Just go w/ a custom ruby color, and/or do a silver stripe.

I bought a set of rotors off of Ebay two years ago, and no problems. Company is called iRotors, slotted, not drilled, and zinc washed, so no rust. I have Hawk HPS pads, and I love them. You may also think about S/S brake lines. Castrol synthetic brake fluid (you may as well change it all out).
This was the best mod I have done to my car so far.

I sent my last slave cylinder to Bill B. at ZFDoc, and he took it apart and blessed, maybe he still does this. It was the second one in 18 months, the first was assembled wrong.
You don't want to drive the car untill this is fixed, make sure you use the GM fluid in the master and it would not be a bad idea to change the trans fluid as well.

Good luck,

I was the manager in a warehouse were people were always coming and going. One day two plain clothes cops showed up looking for one of my guys. He was off that day, they asked me not to tell him they were looking for him. I didn't have to, one of the other guys saw them and called him. Turned out they wanted to talk to him about his neighbor doing something funny w/ kids or something. Had nothing to do w/ him.

Any trouble in the neighborhood?

I have considered it also; I read a post by Josh (Neat) over at the other place, and his costs were very close to the mini ram. I have also read there can be tuning issue's, not sure if that's true or not. I think you would need a small cap distributor, and I would make sure the intake that you buy has been machined correctly. If the distributor hole is not in the right place, it can cause the dist gear to not mesh correctly w/ the gear on the cam. You also want the holes for the water outlets to be on the front of the manifold, not the rear.

Once you feel that kind of power, there's no going back.


Yeah, that what scares me. I really don't want to spend a big pile of money when it gets to be time redo the engine in my car, but the feeling of driving a 427 Musi built sbc can be addicting.
Oh well, guess I gotta keep buying those lottery tickets.

BTW Brian, I love your avatar

I had a very exciting experience today, I drove a friends '90 Corvette w/ a stroked SBC. The car was a absolute rocket ship, the acceleration is just unbelievable. There is nothing quite like coming down off ramp and flooring it! I was doing about 30 mph, and what seemed like a second later I was doing close to 90. I floored it from about 50, and the rear tires broke loose, and the car got a little sideways. What a monster I could/would get myself in lots of trouble w/ a setup like this. I have driven/owned some fast cars in my day, but nothing like this.

What a great day

Heater Core?

Yesterday was a nice day here in Maryland, so I took the Vette for a ride. The heat was on high, and when I turned it off, I smelled a faint odor of antifreeze; so I guess maybe my heater core is leaking? I am not seeing any leaks, and w/ the defrosters on, there is no "smoke", in fact the smell then goes away.
I replaced every hose in the car when I installed a new water pump in '07, but I used an high flow model, and have had to replace the intake manifold gasket because of it. I am afraid that the water pump is taking out the heater core now?

Anybody have any idea whats going on here?

Thanks, Randy

I have one that I have used for about two years, and I love it. it really depends on how much you drive the car. I use one, but I will still drive the car in the cold if the roads are dry. Don't worry about it harming a new battery, as long as it shuts itself off once the battery is completely charged.
