Can you put a 1988 Corsica engine into a 1996 Corsica?
(Licenced Technician)--Not likely. 1996 vehicles are built to OBD-II emissions standards, and have very specific sensor requirements and locations, as well as completely different computer systems. Besides that, in 1988, the engine displacements were either 2.0L L4 or 2.8L V6, and in 1996 were 2200CC L4 or 3100CC V6. There are too many differences; I can't see any way that either of those engines would fit and be driveable afterwards. Hope this helps.

Your 1996 Chevrolet Corsica cooling system. Remove the water supplyline and the water return line. Remove the heater core retainingbolts. Reverse the process to install the new heater core.
It is R134. The port is either on or close to the receiver dryer or the shinny can thing in the right rear of the engine compartment. No, actually a 1988 model year vehicle would have come from the factory with an R-12 system. If you're not the original owner of the vehicle, I would strongly recom…mend that you have a refrigerant purity test done on your vehicle - many R-12 systems were converted to R-134a, but retained the R-12 schrader valves.

How do you remove a 2.8L V6 engine from a 1988 Chevy Corsica without taking the transmission out with the engine?
Yeah it looks tight alright, but after you remove all the accessories, and drive pulleys, you would have just enough room to sneak the engine out of there leaving the transaxle behind.
Answer . on a 96 (3.1 V6) it's a side mount it is on the passenger side of the car on the side of the engine, very close to the fender. the tensioner wheel will accept either an open end wrench or a 1/2 inch or larger pull bar. You will need a pull bar to change the tensioner or the belt, you can… rent them from many autoparts stores. (MORE)
Check here at: www.60degreev6.com They have all kinds of information and specs on all types of 60 Degree V6's which is the motor that your Corsica has in it. If you have the roller rocker arms, they are 17 ft. lbs.
Answer . \nthe oxygen sensor is grounded when you thread it into the exhaust manifold the oxygen sensor should have only 1 wire it should be purple the didnt start putting 2 or 4 wire sensors in until the early 90's there should be a ground from the battery to the block

replacing alternator in 96 corsica detach the cable from the negative terminal of the battery. Remove the drivebelt and on your model of car disconnect the air conditioning hoses from the backside of the alternator. remove the mounting bolts and separate the alternator from the engine. Installatio…n is reverse of removal. Also you may want to label time wires after you detach them from the alternator, too. you out... Bren I just changed my alternator on my 1996 Chevy Corsica v6. There are no a/c hoses and the drive belt is the tricky part because the adjustment pully is down in the bottom half of the engine you need to pull it up as you bolt off. Remove the negative part of the battery and then remove the main bolt towards the back the to smaller bolts and the bolt that holds the battery and then remove the wiring harness from the bottom once the alternator is loose. put it back in the opposite. I would not suggest for someone with no experience attempt to try to do this without some advise. As an alternator would seem to be an easy job and most cars are...and don't let this sway you with this car because with very little care other than what most people don't do is change the oil get regular tune ups and this car will run forever longer than Hondas or Toyotas those cars fall apart on the out side and are not safe they just run on "black oil" for very lazy people this car has a 5 star engine they just come in a ugly body but you can find the 3100 in many cars like late 90's blazers witch are a lot better looking then a corsica (MORE)
I have a 1994 Chevy Corsica. To replace the serpentine belt is a bit of work, but not really that hard. You will need to take off the right front tire. Once the tire is off, you will see a "panel" with screws on it..4 or 5 i think. You will need to remove this. You will need to unhook the cables fro…m your battery, then loosen up your alternator. You will need to take off the top motor mount. There are 2 bolts holding it to the right fender well at right top. and I believe 3 bolts holding it to the motor mount support. You will notice a bracket right under your alternator. 2 bolts you can reach from the top, 1 bolt you will need to go up under from the bottom. There should be a "window" just to the back of where your tire goes where you can reach through to get the last bolt to the bracket. I used a wrench to raise the tension bar up, and then the belt slips right off. Randy L. (MORE)
The coil packs are located behind the engin your will have to Jake up the car and get under it there is a mounting bracket on the back of the motor where the coil packs are mounted to the ignition control modual. there are 2 7/32 screws in each coil pack. or you can remove the whole bracket by 3 13m…m bolts but this isent an easy job all of the screws and bolts are hard to get at you will need a couple different sized extentions and a swivle head to take them off and the job will take you about 2 to 3 hours to do.

There are none. Ignition timing is not adjustable. Ignition timing and spark advance are handled by the engine controller module and the ignition control module, with inputs from various sensors. The engine controller is located by the passenger kick panel. The ignition controller is the thing the c…iol pack mount on...it runs about $110 new. The ignition controller is often the cause of rough running, or idle problems as the spark advance function tends to crap out on this model of DIS ignition. Producing a constant error code, and therefore a constant check engine light. (MORE)

If you can have a friend help you with pulling the engine while you reinstall the bolts for the motor mount, it would be ideal. I did it this way myself. Below the alternator there is a bracket (auxiliary bracket) with 2 nuts and one bolt, loosen those but you don't need to remove them. Next, suppor…t the engine with a jack, make sure to remove the cup from the jack, use a piece of wood and place it under the oil pan to support the engine. Now remove the bolts from the motor mount which will drop the engine. Once you've done that you can slide the auxiliary bracket to the side which will give you enough room to slide the belt in. Once the belt is in, replace the motor mount and tighten the bolts to 37lbs with a torque wrench. Now you can tighten the nuts and bolt on the auxiliary bracket. If you have the tools to reach in, tighten those bolts to 37lbs as well, if not, use your best judgment on the torque. Once your nuts and bolts are tight, you can work the belt on the pulleys following the routing map. Long wrenchs or socket extentions with swivle head attachments help. Be patient and good luck, hope I explained it well enough to help. (MORE)

Answer . \nTake a breaker bar/ ratchet and put pressure against the belt tensioner which is spring loaded( located near the top of the belt path ; has a pulley attached to it).

Most cars and trucks today have what is called a serpentine belt which runs most accessories.They are very dependable and usually easy to replace. To decide if your belt needs replacing, simply look at the grooved side of the belt to see if it is cracking badly. A couple of cracks every 3 inches is …normal, but if you see cracks every 1-2 inches I would recommend that you replace it. On most cars and trucks the procedure is basically the same. First off, get the correct belt by bringing your cars VIN number to the parts store(located on your cars dashboard) the parts store may need it. If there are two choices, get them both so you can complete the repair. Once you have the correct belt, take a minute to review how the belt runs across the pulleys and also check to see if your car/ truck has a underhood diagram of belt routing in case you need it. In most cases you will need a socket wrench or breaker bar with either a 3/8" and /or 1/2" head on it and possibly a short extension. Some models may require a wrench of these similar sizes.Now that you are ready to go to work, you will need to find the spring loaded tensioner which is generally located near the top of the belt path; it usually has a shinny pulley on it. Look at the tensioner and insert the tool into it and apply opposing pressure to release the belt.Now, simply install the new belt making sure it fits into the grooves on all the pulleys. Start the car to check it and you are done and you saved yourelf some money! (MORE)
Answer . Because the computer has detected something that needs to be resolved. Use a code scanner to find out what problem code the computer has store.
Answer . That would depend on what engine you have. Also some front wheel drive engines are stuffed under the hood so tight, it would become a major undertaking. You should invest in a manual if you plan on keeping and doing repairs on this car. Even if you decide later to pay someone for the re…pairs you can see what it involved. You can ask smart questions and learn more, also your mechanic will realize he might not be able to pull the wool over your eyes. (MORE)
Could not getting any spark to the plugs while spinning the engine over on a 1988 Chevy Corsica be due to a coil problem?
answer . 29s here, while i havent had that problem with my corsica the shop that i work for has had many and usually with no spark its the ignition module which sits underneath the coils. this part is a common (COMMON BUT NOT DEFINITE) cause for running rough and no spark within 3.1/2.8 and all o…lder gm engines. try replacing that and your coils see if that gives you spark if not you may need an ignition control module (THE COMPUTER) or have a shorted wire to the module somewhere.

Answer . \n29s here a mechanic could make any motor of the same type fit but its always best to use the some model motor and if im not mistaken GM 3.1s were the same from 93 to at least 97 so IT SHOULD GO IN FLAWLESSLY aside from other things like cruise control and abs.
Answer . \nthe egr valve may be bad call a parts store they should be able to tell you
Loosen the tensioner pulley on your 1988 Chevrolet Corsica. Whenthe tensioner pulley is loose the serpentine belt will easily comeoff. Put the new serpentine belt on and tighten the tensionerpulley.
i have a 96,4cyl. i purchased a special pulley to bypass the condenser,but found it much easier to buy a shorter belt.i ran string around the pulleys and measured it and added a 1/2 inch to an inch and it fit tight,but i hit it the first time.saved a ton of hassle removing the condenser and replacin…g it with pulley.there should be a belt diagram on the hood.

There are two. An upper and lower on the backside of the engine in the center. I've replaced both and one has 3 prongs and the other 2. For a while, I had a 2 prong in place of the 3 prong. It didn't seem to matter. The only way to get there is from beneath the car.
Possible starving for fuel. Replace the fuel filter first, thenmove on from there. Another possibilty, the coolant temp sensor is faulty.
There is a hard line on the back side of the engine block and the hard line sometimes cracks. i would check that line and see if it is leaking. If is not that hard line check your heater core hoses.. Answer . Pressure test system to determine where leak originates

If it is a v6, then 3.1 post 1990 and 2.8 pre 1990. You can probably easily look up that information on wikipedia or this site, which borrows heavily from it. also it should say the size on the door. MPFI XX
1988 Corsica runs fine till you take off and then come to a stop.The engine revs till the car goes below 5 mph it drops the car runs rough and almost dies You put into gear and it dies?
It is possibly the Overdrive Selinoid locatied within the transmission. It's malfunction prevents the transmission from downshifting, thus at low speeds the engin lugs and dies. This is with an automatic transmission.
The horn on a 1996 Chevy Corsica is located just behind thedriver's side headlight in the engine compartment. There is also ahorn relay switch in the lower part of the dash just to the left ofthe steering wheel.
Yes it does; but I'm not sure of the location. They can be difficult to find.
Should be in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
It's in the fuel tank! It's not very difficult to replace, took me about an 1.5 hours doing it with floor jacks.
disconnect the battery, and remove the starter. remove the front wheels and drive axles. disconnect any trans. cooler lines, sensor wires, shift linkage, trans. dip stick, or anything bolted to the transmission. find support for the motor, and for the transmission. disconnect any transmission mounts…. remove bellhousing bolts, and drop transmission out of car, be careful of any wires lines or brackets you may have forgotten or over looked.

The island of Corsica is located in the Mediterranean Sea. Thecoordinates are 42 degrees 9' N, 9 degrees 5' E. It is situatedsoutheast of the mainland of France and west of Italy.
Lay under the fuel tank and look forward of it. It can be done on the ground. Very easy.
Its right there in the front its two bolts i believe look right pest your radiator cap it has a rounded housing and its silver looking

Open the hood and find the exhaust pipe dead center of the engine, follow it down until you see a PLUG sticking out the side with a wire comin' off of it... That's the sensor. Word of advice, get the proper tool for removing this sensor. It is a simple 'slot cut' socket which allows you to install t…his without damaging the wire; or maybe use a crecent wrench if you can get it to fit, but I doubt it. (MORE)
I would think that on size alone it would fit and mount in. Depending on which of the engines the 1985 Celebrity had you might need to make a number of modifications to use the Corsica engine in the Celebrity. The two engines are NOT identical.
You must remove the fuel tank in order to access the pump. Once you have the tank out, it is just a matter of removing the pump and installing the new one.
