I own a 1995 Caprice Wagon.

My problem is with required repair on the Automatic Leveling System.

The pump seems to continually re-cycle, and a sound of leaking air can be heard,just after the pump turns off.

This has caused me to purchase a new battery.

It appears this system has a history of this issue.

Any suggestion on repair would be greatly appreciated.

Same problem, even with new air shocks and new air lines. The continuous air pump running killed the battery on a few cold nights. Gave up and pulled the fuse (#1 in the underhood fuse box) Still trying to get it to work.

Still the most eye-opening, fast and all around statement vehicle you can own. Saw one in Connecticut last month: all bright white, trim and all {even the wipers}

I have a 1994 Caprice wagon and the dealer charged me 3900 for a complete rear end rebuild, but was worth it. That was 4 years ago and it still works pretty good. Caprices that come from the east, tend to have more problems because of rust, and I would imagine why the suspensions go bad. My friend bought his new here in Nevada, and he has never had problems with his '95. (mine came from Ohio)

To the person above about the 355 engine size, the LT1 can be bored and stroked too many various sizes. It can go from 350cid to 355cid, from 350cid to 383cid, from 350cid to 396cid, and 350cid to 410cid. Depends on what you want. More cubes= more power and torque.

I live in Florida and I am looking for a 1996 Caprice wagon, I cannot find one anywhere! Any suggestions?

About a month ago I replaced my old 1989 Olds wagon with a loaded, 1995 Caprice Classic wagon. It's equipped with the LT1 engine. It's been a long time since I've had so much fun driving... I never would have thought a station wagon was capable of doing that! Plus it's huge, comfortable, plush and super-secure feeling!

This guy went from a Dodge Viper to a Caprice wagon? (or so he claims)

Doesn't matter how modified the wagon was, that had to be a big let-down!

This is in response to the guy looking for a "96 Chevy Caprice Wagon". Trouble is, they don't exist. I have done extensive research on mid-90 year Chevy caprices and have found the last year for the wagon was indeed 95, although the last year for the v-8 sedan ended in 96 with 97 being the new body style with a V-6. Although they do not exist directly from GM, I have come across some creative ideas from Caprice Wagon owners who have converted their stock wagons into Impala SS wagons, which was a stock caprice with a larger bored out 350 with corvette heads and intake system, performance tuned suspension and trans, and leather lined interior. In closing, I do believe there is such thing as a 96 Buick Roadmaster wagon, which was similar to the caprice, with more options and slightly differ ext. styling.

The above comment is incorrect. Chevrolet did indeed produce Caprice station wagons for the 1996 model year, although in very small numbers, possibly only a few hundred.

But they do exist. Go on autotrader.com and do a search.

Yeah don't beleive this guy.

Factory tranny couldn't handle the power he's claiming.

Blower &* SC are the same thing.

You couldn't possibly buy a performance chip for $2300 and it couldn't give you 25% more power.

If he was running 12s, he would be faster than 5 sec 0-60.

And if it was as modified as he is claiming it would run 11s.
