Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I assume a 5.0 litre as you said trans am? if so, do you have multipoint injection or tuned port injection? lastly, does the check engine light come on with key on only?
that is what I am asking the light does work with key on only? NOt running?
ok, can you go to the distributor and tell me the wire colors going into the distributor? There were a couple different options
ok, this is different information. You said tach not working. Is the tach reading higher than engine is running? meaning how high is tach running driving at 55
ok, thanks, ***** ***** only one wire running from the ignition coil to the dash, That wire is off the NEG side of the coil. If there was a problem with coil? car would not run or run real bad, You are obviously getting a signal to the dash thus tach does work but readings are off, the tach is "solid state" meaning a real mini logic module inside the tach, The high reading is due to a bad tachometer. NOT a fuse or wire from tach to coil.
yes, you remove the trim, the the cluster, then the tach. here are some basic pictures
