Change the fuel pump in the gas tank.

the carbon build up is not important here. your intake probably has moisture built up from being stored and exposed to condensation. what i suggest is go to your local auto parts store and buy a bottle of K-100 fuel system cleaner and get a fresh tank of gas in it and put the alotted amount of cleaner and run it for a little while. if that does not work than you may have an ignition problem. the first thing that i would personally try is new plugs and plug wires.

I have a 1989 Coupe and I removed the fuel door and the fuel boot and reached in through the access. You have to have skinny arms, though. It's a tight fit. I've read where some remove the inner fender, possibly the spare tire too or remove the rear fascia. Never tried those since I have skinny arms and can reach through after removing fuel door and boot.

Please don't forget to rate!!!

Circuit Protection The main fuse block on these vehicles is located on the right side of the dash, behind an access panel. These also may be a convenience center which can be found under the hood.
Each fuse block uses miniature fuses which are designed for increased circuit protection and greater reliability. The compact fuse is a blade terminal design which allows easy pull-out/push-in removal and replacement.

Hi,

Has the transmission fluid ever been changed?

I am sorry to inform you that more likely, you transmission system might need complete overhauling. I have seen many cases where there is an issue with rear gears.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

sounds to me that the coil tower is to blame ...go buy a new one and then try it.

This is ran with a ground activated circuit ck for a bad blower motor relay.

More than likely the heater valve is stuck open. You can usually purchase them from the local parts house. As far as the ride most of these cars ride this way. You can update the suspension with newer designs and shocks to allow a softer ride and can even get suspension that is adjustable allowing you to set the ride and performance yourself to your liking. Air suspension is probably also available to allow maximum soft ride.

bushing in motor could be bad once its hot it stops from friction

1989 Chevrolet... | Answered on Sep 15, 2009


I would have to say that your transmission failed. The Tranmission was trying to lock up and the engine was being forced to labor extra hard and that is what more than likely created the extra heat.

How does your bose stereo work? You might have a Bose head unit that is consuming power as it sits.

The clutch disk and pressure plate should be balanced and can be mounted in any position that the mounting holes line up. If there is a hole for an alignment dowl, then it is recommended to do so. otherwise it doesnt matter.

The internal balancing is taken care of by the flywheel only.

On mine I lifted up the arm,at the base where its connected to the car there is a little metal tap that sticks out. Pick up on the tab,at the same time release the arm. It should stay up. Then kind of wiggle the base near the tab while pulling up on the arm.It should come right off.Its on a spline like stub.Try to put it back on the same spline teeth it came off of.This keeps the arm in the proper place. Once off its easier to see how the blades come off. Try calling a large auto parts store to see if they have your proper blades. Most large auto parts stores will install the blades for you for free if you buy blades from them.Dont buy the cheapest ones, they dont last.
I hope this helps you.

I had to rebuild the headlight motor gears on my 89 last year. There is a plastic gear in the headlight assembly that has little plastic "barrels" in it for tension. These little bushings disentigrate over a short period of time. both of mine went out about a month apart. They are called the Delrin Bushings and sell for 8.99 a set (MAdirect). sometimes the plastic gear get's damaged, so you may want a kit. I used a new plastic set don't recall how much, they also sell brass for $59 each side. I figure the plastic lasted 20 years last time. It is not for the novice, but it wasn't too hard if you have the right tools. second side took me an hour. good instructions.
