Check your fuel pressure when you attempt to start up. The pump should generate about 13 psi initially when the key is turned to "start". If it doesn't then the problem is likely not injectors but...

Do you (the OP) know the origin of that rear spoiler? There is a very scarce (rare) one made for Chevrolet IMSA racing in 1988. That picture looks like it could be one of those.

It is not all that hard to install a replacement rack. Before you pay $450.00 for that work, check out the procedure in the FSM. It can be done on jack stands and about the only "special tools"...

You will have to pull the fuel pump/sender assembly from the tank. When you had the fuel door and boot off you were halfway there. You will need a new gasket for the sender to tank junction. My...

When you add the hardtop, you will likely have to adjust the side windows to fit it. It is a lot more picky than the soft top about wind noise and water leaks. The hardtop weather strip is also...

Bring it up to Denver and run it thru Clean Air Colorado and get a test sheet. It will at least give you a baseline reading. They use a dyno test but it is likely not as tough as CA.

The relay is not the only means of getting power to the fuel pump on a 1984: there is also a switch in the oil pressure sensor (at the top back of the engine, by the distributor). The usual symptom...

Start with checking at the antenna motor to be sure you are getting power. If yes, check ground connection. If ground is also good its likely the antenna needs R&R.

Well, the answer must be more than 34 years since the 1984 hasn't shown much gain in that time. :lurk:

The TBIs can be impossible to set up if the linkage is worn. Check for "play" between the TBIs when the throttle is closed (at idle) and when you just come off idle. You want both throttle plates...

:iagree: Get the CORSAs. For the money (not inexpensive) they are the best at killing drone while sounding good. As a bonus, they also look good in polished stainless. :cool:

I did the upgrade on my 1996 and I believe the lights now actually illuminate the road (I aimed them low, like fog lamps). They lack good beam control lenses so don't expect too much. :shrug: I...

It is really good that this was a C4 and not a Third Gen Camaro... you didn't have to drain and drop the tank. All the same, not fun to get a faulty "new" part. Good luck with the replacement!

Sure, go to the National Corvette Museum site and order both the window sticker and the build sheet for your car. Between them they will have the information you want. :thumbs:

IIRC the back-ups operate thru the neutral safety switch on an auto trans car and it may simply be worn out. There is an adjustment procedure in the FSM, you use a gage pin to set up the switch with...
