    Help! Will a full size tire and rim fit in the spare tire tub of a C4 Roadster?

    This is a really dumb question, but here goes anyway, If I ever get a flat, will my full size tire and rim (stock) fit in the spare tire tub where my donut tire now lives? If not what does one do? I know you could put the flat tire in the passagnger seat but waht if you have a passenger? Sorry...

    Help! Sounds like somthing loose rear of engine compartment

    I have read in other posts on this site as well as others that a dual mass flywheel can develope this noise too. I think the 6-speed in those early 90's years did have the dual mass flywheel. If it was me, I would live with the niose until having to tear it down to do a clutch and then deal...

    Metal tubing in cooling system

    I too would suggest avoiding copper. If I recall my chemistry classes, there is a potential for galvanic corrosion due to the dis-similar metals. I think that aluminum is a more noble metal than copper so any aluminum parts would corrode away (because it is the nobel thing to do - give up their...

    Video: Corvette ZR1 vs Porsche Carrera GT

    Nice to see the Corvette out in front and holding a solid lead. The Corvette of today is certainly a world class sports super-car indeed! Radar :beer

    Another one bites the dust....

    Rob, I do not see anything odd but I suspect that your trained eye does! The suspense is killing me, can you let us know what that might be? Regards, Radar :)

    Whats GM to do with Corvette ?

    Boy, as a C4 driver, (but someday hoping to also have a C6), I could not agree more! I would not mess with the formula too much - a V6 or a Prius Corvette, count me out when that happens. Radar :upthumbs :w

    squeaking serpentine belt

    I would check for worn sheaves either on the crank/vibration damper or at the AC compressor. Also, while this should not change (except see below), if the sheaves are not aligned, that can cause squealing. Idea: Double check the crank vibration damper. If the rubber inside the damper fails...

    89 with a check engine light

    Thanks for that information. Yes, that is a very long drive for me. I wonder how I could make that work - if I have to leave the car as it is over 130 miles to drive. If I can figure that out and if it is okay to drive the Corvette that distance with the light on, I might be able to that with...

    89 with a check engine light

    My pride and joy recently developed a check engine light that I would like to get addressed. Does anyone know of a quality Corvette service garage that they can recommend in the Milwaukee, Wisonsin area? I will print out the codes but I would really like to have someone fix this issue as well...

    Stall when start and deceleration

    I would also check the exhaust gas recirculation system (EGR). On the Corvette, there is a valve mounted on the intake manifold and a electronic proportioning valve that the ECM uses to "talk" to the EGR valve. I had a car once that did what you are refering to and it was the EGR valve...

    I would check the fuel pump pressure. Maybe you have a failing pump or a clogged filter. Radar

    Weird Electrical Problem in 91

    Check your grounds. If one lifts, all kind of wierd things happen. Try to get a shop manual and that will show the wiring diagrams and the grounds. The Vett being fiberglass has limited places to gound circuits. Thanks, Radar :w
