Q. I have a 79 vette 383 stroker. For some reason I can’t seem to solve a problem with leaking valve cover gaskets. The leak is coming from the left rear of the engine. The gaskets have been replaced several times within a short period of time.
Q. I have a 2007 ZO6 with about 7500 miles on it. On a recent trip, after accelerating to about 6500rpm the engine lost power and ran erratically. The check engine light did not come on. An On Star diagnostic reported a problem in the air intake system. I got the car to a nearby friend’s shop and we’re moved the air intake snorkel and discovered a fair amount of engine oil that had gotten on the air filter as well as the mass airflow sensor. After removing, cleaning, and reassembling the intake system the car ran fine on the way back home. The car is at my dealers now and they can’t figure out what caused the problem or how to prevent its occurring again. There’s no evidence that the oil came from any external source. It had to come from somewhere inside the intake system. Has anyone experienced this problem or have suggestions as to cause, fixes, etc.? Any help would be appreciated.
Q. I have a 6 spd 08 Coupe. When I drove up my steep driveway the TCS indicator in the dash was displayed ( car with skid lines ) and service the TCS displayed in the DIC. I cleared the msg but couldn’t get the dash light off. My problem was when this happened I was locked out of reverse, no reverse at all. I got car back down the driveway and drove it and finally cleared the car sliding display. I have reverse again. Has anyone else had this problem of not being able to get the shifter into “reverse”. It only has happened twice and both times happened on my driveway.
Q. The headlights on my 1989 convertible “stick” when I open or close them. Is there a point where they should be lubricated? I checked the obvious wiring connections to make sure that they are not loose. Could the “sticking” be the result of a bad relay? How can I tell if the motors are bad? I appreciate all help/advise that I can get.Read More
Q. I have a 69 427 tri-power. I just changed the accelerator cable and then had an extremely weak ignition circuit. I installed a new battery…was due anyway and still weak. I have juice to the alternator, horn relay, starter, and terminal relay on the firewall checked with a test light. Is there a ground wire attached to the gas pedal bracket/linkage I did not connect. Thanks for the help.
