  1. V6 Camaro and Firebird Tech
    Hello - I'm new to the forum and am looking for help! I have a 1996 RS with the 3.8L V6 engine. I need a new Knock Sensor Module, not a Knock Sensor itself. The GM part # I was told is 16212229. It's discontinued everywhere I look. Does anyone know where I can get a new one? OEM or aftermarket...

  3. 4th Gen (1998-02) Camaro and Firebird Tech
    I took a video of my car's issues when I go from being on the gas to letting it idle. https://youtu.be/1lthBKn1eYU It does this same thing while I'm driving. Notice the lights dim and the oil pressure drops slightly. It idles low too. Between 500 and 600 RPM. I've replaced the MAF sensor, air...
  4. V6 Camaro and Firebird Tech
    I have a 1997 3.8l Camaro that is mostly stock aside from a couple bolt-ons. When ever I rev above 3,000 rpm and release the throttle, a rather high pitched, very load rattle resonates from somewhere under the body. It is strange in that it only occurs when there is no throttle and the engine is...

  10. V6 Camaro and Firebird Tech
    My wife's 1996 Camaro with the V6 3.8L had the AC go out many years ago and she just took it in to see how much to fix it. The guy said it would cost around $1800 which is far more than we can afford so I'd like to bypass it in case the clutch does ever fail since we aren't using it anyhow. (I...

    Hey all, Lately my 98 camaro 3.8L has been misfiring. It doesn't matter if the engine is hot or cold. It doesn't matter if idling or cruising down the highway. Every once in a while, the ses light flashes then stays on steady. Sometimes the light will go away within the same trip. When the...
  12. V6 Camaro and Firebird Tech
    Okay, so like many v6'ers, I've got the common Rear Main Seal leak. I've been offered to have it repaired for a pretty good price. Since the tranny is going to have to be dropped, I decided to get a new clutch. Seems logical, yes? I know with the replacement of a clutch the flywheel also should...

    So I've had my pretty little red birdy for about 8 months now, have enjoyed every bit of it. Even if it is a v6 it seemed peppy enough for me.
