1994 Chevrolet Camaro 3.4L V6 from North America


Reliable, cheap transportation with OK mileage


There is an extremely light leak in the head gasket. So light that it doesn't even drip onto the ground. When I last changed the oil, I let it go about 4,000 miles, and when full of oil the engine has 4 pints of oil, but when I drained it I had 2.5-2.8 pints. So it burns and leaks a little I guess, but not bad enough to overheat.

At about 147,000, I was driving and the engine started smoking, but no over heating. I took it into my mechanic and apparently my oil pressure switch had busted, and it was leaking onto my exhaust, and that was the cause of the smoking; that ended up only being $75 dollars, parts and labor.

Then I let my brake pads really low, and so I had to replace those, and now I think I need to get my rotors turned, because my wheel shakes when I brake hard from like 95mph-55mph or 0.

Also the entire time I've owned the car, there has been an odd clattering noise, sometimes when I accelerate. But my cylinder pressure is good, and the transmission is in decent condition.

When I'm stopped at stop lights, I think the transmission is still somewhat engaged, so pop it into neutral, because I think it's probably more efficient.

General Comments:

The transmission lags a bit when I stomp on it. I would rather have gotten the manual version, but I got this car for 1800, in almost mint condition, so no complaints here.

It tops out at 110MPH, limited. It handles real well for being as heavy as it is.

The paint has lasted quite well, although it was under a cover for 2 years.

The one thing I don't like is the mileage. EPA it's SUPPOSED to get 21 city and 29 highway. But the best I've ever gotten is like 23.8, and the worst is 17.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Nothing is wrong everything works.

General Comments:

This is a 3.4 V6 manual and it gets good gas mileage. If you put pipes on it, it will sound like a V8 because of the rumble. It's a fast car and everybody likes it. It handles very good on curves and not too bad in the rain.

1994 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 5.7 LT1 from North America


Setting it on fire is the only way to smoke the tires!



Blown head gasket. Dripped coolant on distributor.


Water pump.


Exhaust leak due to headers, unrepairable.

Severe misfire, cause unknown.

Overheating past 260 with a full radiator, and 160 thermostat.

Transmission shaky.

Oil leaks from both heads.

Exhaust leak from cat leaking into cabin, causing health problems.

General Comments:

Worst car ever made, ever owned.

Don't care what other people think, these things are temperamental piles of crap. One helluva poor excuse for a "sports car". People say they're reliable if well maintained, which basically means devoting 3/4s of your life to the damn thing.

If it had the 350 TPI engine, I doubt if my review would be this poor; the LT1 is a temperamental, overheating, misfire prone crap box of an engine.

If you want an American car (which I wholeheartedly recommend) GM is great (go Buick!!), but stick with 1967-1992, 1998-2002 Camaros and 'birds, avoid LT1s at all costs. The 3.8 engine is great though, my Buick has the supercharged version, and it runs unbelievably well.

Don't go to dealers!!! They'll run you in circles buying crap you don't need, just to earn an extra buck. Real enthusiasts work on their own cars!!

If you live in America, buy something made here, plain and simple!

That car sounds like it was abused. Cracked head maybe? That would explain the over-heating as well. Mine has 251,000 miles (original engine, never rebuilt, 2nd tranny) and will still smoke the tires. It never over heats and has plenty of power to spare.
