2002 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 012008

Camaro 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 44,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Chevrolet Camaro. The contact stated that the control box in the engine, located near the firewall, caused the fuel injectors to pour fuel into the engine. As a result, the engine was ruined. When the vehicle was started, white smoke appeared from the exhaust. The vehicle was towed to the dealer, but they went out of business. The vehicle was towed to another dealer and they replaced the entire engine. The manufacturer offered him a 10% discount and the contact paid $6,200 for the repair. The contact has a photo of where the box was located in the engine, which he felt was too close to the firewall and the initial cause of the failure. The current and failure mileages were approximately 44,000. Updated 1/26/09 the consumer was the number 7 cylinder may have compressed liquid, most likely fuel that caused the piston and rod to be damaged. It caused damaged to the cylinder wall which required the replacement of the engine. The consumer was then told the fuel injectors were in the open position because the wiring controlling the fuel injectors was chafed and making contact with the bulkhead which grounded the wiring.
