Only thing you can do yourself is to pull off the connector on the computer and check pins for corrosion. If you can get another computer on "loan" you might try plugging it in. though its somewhat rare (it should be) computers do fail. On older cars you can likely get a replacement in any scrap yard. sorry I can't help more, but with no readings, everything points to what I've said. You should also check ignition switch to amke sure power is coming out of there to remainder of system.

Cooling fans on 1994 Caprice classic with 4.3 v8

Cooling fans on 1994 Caprice classic with 4.3 v8 not coming on. I have replaced the temp sensor on the water pump, temp sensor on the block, all relays, fuses are good, replaced the ecm (engine control computer). Gave up and took it to an mechanic, they sent to electrician who now says the even though the temp gauge is rising when the temp goes up it is not sending signal to computer to kick fans on. Does the gauge send the signal to the fans? Seems everyone else has been telling me the sensors go straight to the ecm to turn on the fans. thank you CW

On a vehicle this age, it is likely that the fans themselves have worn out. Test the fans by running battery power directly to the positive contact. If they start, they are OK. On 4.3 motors, there is also a seperate temp sensor to signal the fans, usually called a fan switch. I believe it operates independent of the ECM. Another possible culprit is a bad ground at the fans or even a loose or corroded negative battery cable.

Dude.. You need to adjust the TV cable or it is broken. It runs from the throttle to the transmission. It sounds like it is starting off in the wrong gear. All of this is due to that cable man! Have it checked out before it burns the trans out! Also; make sure it is full on fluid, and DO NOT over fill it. After you have driven it for a while, stop on level ground, put it in park, and check the dipstick. check it many times, and go by the low side of the stick. It may read up there on one side but low on the other, and if this is the case it is low. The fluid should show full on both sides of the stick. When changing the filter, there is a grommet type seal that goes up in the valve body, and they are very hard to change without the proper tool to do it with. A common mistake is some people think the old one is out and put the other one in, and have two in it. This will cause all kinds of problems. If that seal gets damaged it will **** air and cause the trans to give problems. Good Luck!

Automatic Transmission shifts late and rough after warm

Chevy Caprice 1994 w/ new distributor, check engine light comes on and off around the same time that it has trouble getting out of 1st and 2nd gears (automatic). Giving plenty of gas it does shift but lurching forward and not smooth. Doesn't have this problem when cold. Transmission fluid level and quality are fine.

If it has over 60000 miles it may need a transmission service, which includes a filter and fluid change, fluid may look fine but if filter is clogged and not picking up fluid fast enough when u give it gas the pump spins faster and forces fluid thru to shift, more fluid is needed to shift into higher gear.than to drive

went to PEP Boys they ran a diagnostic test and

went to PEP Boys they ran a diagnostic test and said the car needed a tune up. So we replaced the plugs, wires, distributor cap and distributor,IGN coil, Gas filter, air filter, oil change and the water pump since we had to remove it to get to the distributor. Put a new 180 degree thermostat in. Car still run poorly and now get hot at a stop. This never happened. Car still runs poorly just replaced the EGR valve. nothing made a difference. What is next?

My experince with PEP Boys is they do not honor their warrenties. But I would go back and complain about the car running hot since the only part of the cooling system they didn't change was the radiator they did something wrong. It should not be running hot. Is the cooling fan running? If not they probably didn't reconnect the wires to it or broke a wire. They also conned you on the water pump, you have to take out the distibutor to get to the water pump not the other way around.
