I have a 1993 camaro and I have been having the same issue recently... At first it runs great but when I drive for a little and turn the car off and start it again a couple minutes later the puttering starts. I was wondering if you resolved the issue yet? Earlier today it was puttering really bad so I pulled over and opened the gas tank and tightened the cap, the car ran great after that.

on the back of the opti you have to look at the 3 dots. it could be off just on the wrong dot or 180D off. the tit that is on the back of the opti could have moved just on the other side of the dot.one way to find out is to put a piece of paper behind the opti and see if the tit and the dot meet.if it does then remove the paper and put the opti back on.Trust me I have had 10 camaros.

Great idea, never thought of that one before. It seems like people are having a lot of problems with their camaros, which makes me nervous seeing I have an older 95 with 158K on it. Runs amazing, but one of these days it will break down. Once it does, heck I'm doing a crate engine and reworking all the systems. I'm not going to deal with all the garbage of diagnosing each little problem. Eventually I plan to be pushing 500hp out of it. We'll see if it happens.
#20 of 34 Doesn't run when you hit gas pedel

I have a 2000 camaro 3.8 V6 will start and idle but kind of rough and when i put my foot into the gas it bogs down.. Will not run faster than about 15 miles an hour.
Codes: P0300, P0449, P1120, P1561. Replaced egr, what else should i do?

very clogged catalytic converter could cause those symptoms.
also looks like one of those codes indicates throttle position sensor. malfunction of that sensor could account for the symptoms too.

I have a 95 Camaro that is losing water. I have replaced the water pump and thermostat. It is not overheating, but probably will if I let the water get low enough. There is no water in the oil. There is no oil in the water. It only smokes slightly until it reaches about 100 degrees, then none. There is a few drips coming out of the tail pipe maybe 4 or 5 drips in 15 minutes. Water coming out is clear (maybe slightly rust colored). No smell or taste. During that 15 minutes of running it loses about 2 pints of water. Can not find any leaks , but I know it is going somewhere. I don't want to do a head gasket job if it is not gonna solve the problem. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks at a loss!
