I have a 1986 Vette that I just got this week that won't stay running or idle. It will start and I can keep it going using the gas pedal but it sounds and feels rough. I am going to check for codes tomorrow as the SES light is on. Could it be as simple as the TPS or IAC? I have been reading about the MAF sensor, power relay, and burnoff relay as potential culprits also. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated as I am 100% new to Corvettes! Thanks!
Disconnected the MAF and she fired right up and stayed running!!! Thanks for the advice! Still gonna check codes as she's running a touch rich. Could just need a tune up or is that because the MAF is disconnected? Thanks!
You are welcome..yeah,i knew it would work....you dont wanna know how many sleepless nights,and big bucks i have spend on this problem...becourse my MAF was only 1 week old when this problem came along,so it was the last thing that came on my mind.You need to get, and install a new Maf sensor,to make it run smoothly.
Thanks again for your help. Going to pick up a new MAF tomorrow. Also found that the fasteners on the airbox were broken so there is not a good seal for the air filter. Need to order that as well. Taking it in Tues for a tune up and some misc stuff.
