What causes a C4 Corvette to start off wrong?

What causes a C4 Corvette to start off wrong?

Errors and vacuum leaks can throw the calculation off and Corvette returned to the MAF system beginning with the 1994 C4 (with a MAP backup). From a troubleshooting standpoint, the MAP operation comes into the sequence the same place that the MAF does.

What does closed loop mean on a corvette?

In simple terms X+X+X= Output “Y” The computer then switches to “closed loop” mode meaning the Oxygen sensor’s output is being referenced and being used along with the MAT and ECT outputs for the ECM to adjust the injector pulse widths (more “ms longer” or less “ms shorter”) to maintain a 14.7:1 air/fuel mixture.

Why did the C4 Corvette go back to MAF?

With the 1994 model C4, they went back to the MAF system. Note that MAF based systems are far more accurate since they measure air flow directly whereas the MAP system calculates air flow indirectly. Errors and vacuum leaks can throw the calculation off and Corvette returned to the MAF system beginning with the 1994 C4 (with a MAP backup).

What should the idle speed be on a corvette?

Initial engine idle speed of should be around 900-1100 RPM and then slowly decay to around 600-700 RPM unless the air conditioner is on at which case it will run at around 800-1000 RPM depending on pressure altitude. If this does not happen, the Idle Air Mixture Valve or IAC may be plugged or faulty.

Why does my C4 Corvette engine not start?

The distributor outputs rotational frequencies to the ECM (Engine Control Module) as a result of the engine being rotated by the starter. This frequency continues as long as the engine turns (both starting and running) if no frequency output is present the engine will not run.

Why does my car shut off when stepping on the gas pedal?

received a Car shuts off when stepping on gas pedal Inspection. Rough idling, frequent stalling, and inconsistent acceleration are all signs that something is amiss with your car. There are a number of systems that can cause this problem.
