About Chevrolet Caprice

Topping the full-loaded Chevrolet Impala, Chevrolet Caprice was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division from 1964 to 1996 and again by an Australian automaker Holden, which is a subsidiary of GM from 2000 to 2017 as a full-size car. Originally introduced the Pontiac G8 in North America, Caprice was the most popular American car in the 1960s and early 1970s. Though as a luxury trim package for the Impala before, Caprice became a separate model in 1966 and was awarded Motor Trend Magazine's Car of the Year. Now, Chevrolet Caprice is in its sixth generation. But for the North American market, Caprice has only five generations.
The fourth-generation Chevrolet Caprice was produced from April 12, 1990, to December 13, 1996, as sedan and station wagon. It came in base and Classis trim levels, replacing the previous Classic and Brougham. During this generation, Chevy Caprice was powered by 4.3 L V8 rated at 200 hp, 5.0 L V8 and 5.7 L V8 producing 260 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. And engines sent power through 4-speed automatic transmissions. Then in 2011, Caprice nameplate returned to North America and it is sold only to law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and Canadian market as of 2011. Base LS, LT, SS and Royale are still available trim level. And Caprice now gets power from a 6.0 L V8 rated at 355 horsepower and a 3.6 L V6 producing 301 hp. Power is sent through 4-speed or 6-speed automatic transmission to rear wheels.

Chevrolet Caprice Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Offering affordable luxury features, Chevy Caprice is a very popular choice as a family vehicle. However, the family-used Caprice now is at least twenty-years-old, therefore, you need to be prepared for these common problems on the vehicle in advance:
First, for Chevrolet Caprice drivers, engine issue always ranks first among all other problems since it is always the omen indicating the vehicle bordering on breaking down. Fortunately, desperate Caprice owners still could speculate this issue from some recognizable symptoms. For example, there is black smoke coming from the engine, engine stalls intermittently, misfires and even suffers from hard starting or inability to start. The decrease in overall quality of the whole vehicle could be sensed easily through vehicle loses power while accelerating, consumes excessive oil and even overheating body. Thus, once the Check Engine Light comes on, please set about to inspect the Caprice camshaft, fan motor, camshaft position sensor, crankshaft position sensor, oil pressure switch, coolant temperature switch, oxygen sensor and air filter.
Second, issues on transmission, suspension and steering systems could be very troublesome for Chevrolet Caprice drivers. These issues are often not that serious as engine problems, but if left unattended or dealt with unproperly, fatal consequences still arise. Transmission failure often manifests as transmission slippage and surging, partial loss of vehicular power, problems when attempting to switch gears and abnormal engine noise. And the Caprice torque converter is often the culprit. While suspension and steering failure could be attributed to Caprice coil spring insulator and Caprice power steering hose respectively.
However, if you always keep the necessity of performing routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Chevrolet Caprice in mind, then the possibility of fatal accidents will decrease a lot. The first step is to distinguish what parts of your Caprice need routine maintenance as the vehicle is assembled by so many different kinds of auto parts.
