Damn took care of most of the TLC that this 98 needed and was on my way to
the dealer to
get the recalls taken care of (Lap belt, Column lock) and the check engine
light comes on so I have
them check it and they say that the knock sensors are bad and to change two
$40 parts it
would be $600 in labor because they have to remove the intake this sucks why
the hell can't
chevy put the sensors where they are easy to get to???
I was thinking about doing it myself just a little scared I grew up working
on cars and even went to school for auto mechanics in 1982 for a year and a
half and had some old hot rods 2 of witch where 1/4 mile cars (best run 64
falcon 12.15 at 112MPH) but all with old school components like carburetors
I am kind of lost with things like a knock sensor and computer controlled
spark witch is kinda funny because I grew up working on cars and now I am a
computer tech... if you have something like a PDF file with the some
instructions that would be great thank you...
The intake is not diff to take off, according to the service manual. I
can look it up if you like.
You got my address from an earlier email, send me a good mailing address and
I'll mail you a cd that has what you need. I have to go to the post office
tomorrow so snap to it and I'll send it out. By the way, it's the entire
Corvette parts and ass'y from 1997 through 2001, about 49 megs so emailing
it is out of the question. Zipping it only drops 1.3 megs.
The intake is a simple job, I've said this before that all parts that need
changing can't be on the roof so you don't have to bend over, some are put
on first and some are put on last, the last ones last the longest. ;-))
I had mine off before replacing the oil pressure switch. Not that big of a
I didn't disconnect the braided hose (fuel line) just slid the intake to the
once it was unbolted. For what you're doing, you won't either. Also, watch
for the 3/8 to 1/2 inch hose which runs between the back of the intake and
If you're not carefull, you'll snap it and have to go get a pc of 50cent
hose to patch it up.
Easy job. I wish somebody would pay me $300 to do it! Rip at the dealers'.
