Hello from MA!

Hey guys I'm Justin. Bought my first car back in November. It is a 1992 Camaro RS Z03!

It has a few problems but I'll fix them. I bought it for $850! I don't have my license yet, but I've driven it in circles in the back yard, and it love it already.My uncle drove it back from Rhode Island and I sat in the pass. seat and I loved it.

So far I just did a few small things. Put in new spark plugs, bought an air charge temp sensor for it, a new fan switch, idler arm. Just got a stock shifter for it as it has a B&M shifter in it, and I don't like it so much, and I'm going for stock. Still got a few more things to get it going better, but nothing major.

Re: Hello from MA!

Welcome to the Club, Justin. Nice ride and looks to be a good deal.
Best investment for you would be a Haynes manual for the model. It will show you 'how' the car works, as the Owner's Manual shows you how to 'work' the car.

I see the A/C lines have been cut, so in Mass, you may not need A/C.
Check to see if on the inner fenderwell behind the pass tire, if any previous owner hole sawed a 4 inch diameter hole for access to #8 spark plug rather than either jack up the car and access the plug from underneath or use really skinny arms and get it from the top - might be the reason for the removal of the A/C hoses and the like.

Suggestion - add some coolant to the reservior. There always should be some coolant in it. As the engine expands and contracts, fluid will rise and fall and this is a good thing, keeps coolant in the water jackets for better cooling than air.

Another tip , look at the upper radiator hose for a date code, ie, '2Q92' meaning second quarter of 1992. Signifies when the hose was made. Looking at the spring clamps, hose and clamps may be original equipment. As far as looking, look at all the hoses and plastic lines their entire length and replace any hose/tubing having cracks. You don't want any vacuum leaks upsetting the engine fuel mixture. The fuel hoses to the right of the alternator might need changing.

Welcome to Team Camaro from another MA resident. Your car looks great, much better than my 88 IROC.

Re: Hello from MA!

Thanks guys! I will look for that hole in the fender, never heard of anybody doing that! I hope to put the ac back in someday just to keep the car original, and I hate having controls for something that doesn't work.

Re: Hello from MA!

A few things Justin,
1st, thanks for not buying an import, it's good to see young guys drive American iron for a change, and the 3rd gens are a good bargain ( and your is a nice car for the money )
2nd, I like seeing young guys interested in cars instead of 24/7 X-box
3rd, you sound like a guy who isn't afraid to work on his own car and that's huge, you are carrying the torch for the new generation. I like that you want to make it stock, that is very cool. So many young guys like to hot rod a car and do it wrong and end up with junk.

I like what I'm seeing here, and stick around, come back to learn as much as you can, you'll get tons of support here. Good for you man.

Re: Hello from MA!

On the console cover, ther might be a RPO sticker.
An RPO code is a three character code for the standard and optional items installed on the vehicle. For example, G80 is RPO code for a limited slip differential. C60 is A/C,
Make the list and search for GM RPO codes to see what items were installed during production.
Does the rear hatch work correctly with the electric latch?

Re: Hello from MA!

I've checked the codes and yes the hatch works perfectly! The car doesn't have too many options other than the Z03 heritage package. It has manual windows and locks,and manual mirrors. Nothing major.
