    • Tuned port was optional that year but they're very good engines with tons of bottom end torque

  • NEVER use starter fluid, use BRAKE CLEANER, because it contains a lubricant that won't hurt the inside of the engine. start fluid, will do bad things to the upper cylinders and rings. i am a mechanic!

  • news flash when you're trying to start a car thats been sitting 30 years and its shaking the entire car and vibrating and the engine is sputtering, you need to stop. you're just working mouse nests, squirrel nests, dirt,debris and who knows what goop deeper into the block. especially when it sounds like a soviet tractor, the cylinders are getting ruined and you are causing 3 times more damage.

LOTS of time & money.

  • The 1984 Corvette came with the wretched Crossfire V8. All other model years after that did not have the Crossfire. However, that EFI and its various incarnations did find its way into many V8-powered GMs throughout the Eighties. You dodged a bullet in not getting the Crossfire, that's for sure!

  • you can use a paper clip in place of the "key" because thats all it is. 2 prongs connecting pins. clean the injectors or replace. vacuum lines are a big issue. a lot of that rough idle is vacuum. i wish i had a shop like yours with a lift. I have several projects that i could get done so much easier with all that

  • Years ago I bought an old, wrecked VW Beetle for $25 strictly for the parts. It had been sitting with a half-tank of fuel in it for 22 years! It smelled like very old spar varnish with a truckload of garlic mashed into it. Surprisingly, after draining it out I poured it out at the edge of a field and struck a match to the puddle-it flamed off like it was fresh premium right out of the refinery!

  • 1985 was the first year for the T.P.I. or "tuned port injection" ( L98) 350 engine, rated at 230 h.p., in the Corvette. This is the stock engine in the car that you have. 1984 was the one and only year that the cross fire injected 350, code named (L83).,and rated at 205 h.p.,was offered in the C4 Corvette. It had previously been introduced and offered in the 1982 C3 Corvette.There was no 1983 Corvette, as the C4 was not yet ready for production. The IROC Z Camaro did not receive the tuned port injected 350 until 1987, and this version of the engine (B2L) did not have the aluminum heads that were available on the Corvette, beginning in 1986, instead using a set of iron heads. The Camaro received tuned port injection the same year, 1985, as the Corvette, but the largest displacement available was the 305, code named (LB9) when so equipped, and rated at 215 h.p., and only offered with the 700R4 automatic.
