1993 Chevrolet Corsica LT

The Chevrolet Corsica LT (offered both a 2.2 liter and a Quad 4 is a mid-sized four-door family offered by General Motors. The 2.2 model is listed in California as a Low-Emission Vehicle ( although its specifications put its fuel (both city and highway) 29 mpg, my experience has been this model can achieve 29 mpg mpg highway.

One of this model’s is its ability to eat alternators for breakfast. It out, the alternator in this model apparently overheat s due to some consider a design A popular opinion is that the compact design, combined the close proximity to the hood alternator is located on the passenger-side the front of the car at the very top of the engine ) causes overheat.

As a result of this wear, for I have replaced the alternator 6 since I bought the car in 1997 (As of Aug I now have about 182,000 on this car). I have with other owners as as GM factory mechanics who have me that this is a well-known

With the practice I have I now can replace my alternator on the side of the in pouring rain in only 10 The job requires the use of a ratchet with extension to remove three (plus the terminal nut) and a belt tool for easiest and installation of the belt. Always when servicing a vehicle the battery first!

The Chevrolet Corsica LT 2.2 liter’s oil procedure is of average difficulty in to other vehicles. The filler is located within easy in the center of the engine compartment. The plug is easily accessed on the of the oil pan with the car either on ramps or the body properly supported at 7 inches above resting

The oil filter is on the firewall side of the about half-way down, and is reached from above on the side. When removed, the oil and fitting drain straight upon the exhaust pipe. a small amount of smoke on after the oil change.

Other items I have on this model that be replaced by the average do-it-yourselfer :

I’ve replaced that a experienced do-it-yourselfer can do:

Items left to a mechanic:


This vehicle is fairly to work on, with very few

My particular Corsica still as quiet as many new sedans and me with 30 mpg and few problems.

The Haynes Manual for this model is correct and useful.

If you have a with your 1993 /msg me to see if I’ve had the same


Exactly one day after this writeup, my heater sprung a rather serious

After much trial and I managed to disassemble my dash to a where I could open remove) the heater box to replace the core. For the most part, to do job, you can follow the Haynes manual (except they tell you how to disassemble the dash or just vague instructions).


I am now around 195,000 miles and had one more alternator change about 2,000 miles Other than that, the car runs exceptionally well I should probably get the seats There is no hesitation, no shudder, no noise. basically nothing to differentiate this car from one about 65,000 miles on it. I say all to emphasize that this has a good endurance if properly

Heck, you may have even that the ’93 Corsica is one of the spotted vehicles in its age range. ENDURANCE UPDATE, Nov.

As of November 2004, my particular now has over 200,000 miles and operating nearly as well as the day I got it. ENDURANCE UPDATE, Feb.

As of February 2006, my particular now has around 210,000 miles. the only degradation since my posting is that it is just now to have enough of an oil leak I have to top off my oil once between plus the front suspension has clunking I attribute to dry bushings. If I so cheap and lazy, I would down and fix the leak and replace the Obviously, I’ve slowed on accumulating miles.

This is not so much a result of the age of the as it is a change in my work duties, as I now a desk quite a bit more. 30 miles per gallon, by the way. ENDURANCE UPDATE, Nov.

As of November 2006, my particular now has around 215,000 miles and has needed a water pump year.
