Okay, found a pic online of the plug with the leads marked. I had hooked to the left and middle. The middle isn't ground, that's the one on the right. I connected to the two outside leads, hit the...

Still nothing after jumpering. I even got under the car and checked it at the connection right before the tank. Some interesting results.

With the jumper connected on the passenger shock tower, I...

What really happens if you mix up the rockers and pushrods?

Seriously. 97 Z28 LT1, all the rockers and pushrods were just tossed in a zip lock bag. Nothing marked for which cylinder it was in. Same with the lifters. I bought new lifters since I didn't want to...

Thanks cocobobo95. Like I said, 95 scan stuff isn't an option. I'm selling this car as soon as I get it all running right. I don't want to spend $60 on a cable I'm only going to use once.

OBD1 scanner isn't an option. I tried to find one a few years ago with no luck. At least not at a reasonable price.

I did them by the book. Turned the motor until the lifter was all the way down, tightened the nut just until the pushrod would no longer spin freely, then did a half turn. Repeated that process 16...

Update: I just confirmed these are separate problems. There could still be a vacuum leak so there isn't enough vacuum going to the climate controls, so I'll have to keep looking.

Car idles fine, but wants to die when I release the throttle

95 LT1 Z28 automatic convertible. Bone stock, no tune.

I did not have to cut the ridge off. There wasn't one. Car only had 104K miles on it and there was no ridge. So cylinder wear wasn't bad at all and shouldn't have been far off original specs. I've...

Thanks for the reply, even if I'm saying it two years later.

This is where I'm confused. You're saying 96 didn't use tty head bolts. Yet, in a different thread I asked about the specs given in the Hayne's manual and was told 1996 WAS the year they switched to...

So the head bolts are reusable then also? Because I just looked that part up in the same service manual you linked to and it said nothing about using new bolts for the cylinder heads.

One way to tell is to check that service manual to...

A pic or two would be great. Especially if you can just show me the weep hole from the bottom of the car. I can find it in the quarter panel no problem if I know where it comes out.
