About Chevrolet Corsica

Being mechanically similar to Pontiac Grand Am and Buick Skylark, Chevrolet Corsica was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division between October 1987 and June 1996. Originally introduced as the replacement for Chevrolet Citation, Corsica was also called as Pontiac Tempest in Canada and was named after Corsica, France. Though being the second best-selling cars in the United States in 1988, after being manufactured for three generations, the production of Corsica ceased, and it was replaced by the Chevrolet Malibu.
The second-generation Chevrolet Corsica was produced from 1991 to 1994 as a 4-door sedan although the 5-door hatchback was available in the previous generation. At the same time, it dropped the LTZ and XT trim levels and was offered in only LT. during this generation, Chevrolet Corsica was powered by 2.2 L inline 4-cylinder engine and 3.1 L V6 engine, and engines sent power through 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual transmissions to the front wheels. The more recent Corsica was the first American car to be equipped with daytime running lights as a standard feature. Although being equipped with a body-colored grille, mirrors, side moldings, a revised rear suspension and Dex-Cool engine coolant, Chevrolet Corsica came with only one engine option, the 3.1 L V6 rated at 160 hp. And power was sent through a 4-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with overdrive and lubricated with 100,000 miles long-life fluid.

Chevrolet Corsica Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Built based on the L-body platform, Chevrolet Corsica shared some advantages in build quality. But take its age into account, you will find that even the youngest Corsica is on the verge of getting these common problems:
First, for drivers, including Chevrolet Corsica drivers, engine related issues are eternal difficult and serious problems. Not only because engine issues often indicate the vehicle bordering on breaking down but also are the culprits of many other problems, which in return usually deteriorate the engine failure. Based on some experienced Corsica drivers, this issue on the vehicle often manifests as strange sounds from the engine, bubbles in the radiator and oil becomes white milky. Meanwhile, the coolant keeps leaking, which makes the engine stays at a high operating temperature so that its performance reduces dramatically. In the end, the vehicle will lose power while acceleration and have poor fuel efficiency. Therefore, once the Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light are activated, please inspect the Corsica spark plug, head gasket, intake manifold gasket, oil filter, air filter, fuel pump and fuel filter.
Second, on Chevrolet Corsica, suspension failure is another serious issue that also leads to fatal consequences. It is a pity that most Corsica drivers lack understanding about this problem and do not realize its issue in time so that it results in irreversible results. For example, at first, only clunking or rattling noises from underneath the vehicle distract and annoy you; then you will find the tire wear becomes uneven and excessive, the vehicle seems to tilt to one side. Finally, you realize it is difficult to control the vehicle due to intense vibration, unintentionally steering and a loose steering wheel. Then, you panic and bang. In order to prevent the worst result, you had better make sure the Corsica wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, coil springs, and coil spring insulator are always working properly.
Apart from above-mentioned problems on your Chevrolet Corsica, if you want to make sure every ride is safe, performing routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts and keep them in good order is your mandate job. Some parts are vital but made of fragile materials and work always under harsh conditions, for example, Corsica windshield wiper, wiper blade, seat belt, fog light, headlight, door handle, antenna and cabin air filter need to be maintained routinely for your safe and comfortable ride.
