    Been awhile! Camaro questions!


    Hey guys, been a while since I have posted on here... BUT I have a question for anyone who knows anything about 4th Gen camaros!

    Ok, so it has been sitting up for almost 2 years. I stopped driving it because it had a misfire from around 1500-3000 RPMs. I decided to mess with it today. I put a fresh battery in it and cranked right up! Surprised me on that one!!!

    I have asked multiple people on any thoughts on what could be causing the misfire. I've heard anywhere from a coil(s), injectors, etc. I think it is a coil because it revs fine without load, but once driving the misfire starts.

    What I am getting at... How much do shops generally charge to diagnosis and replace (if it is indeed a coil)? It has a cam/valves etc and it just always was lit up after the swap. BTW its a v8 swap/ECU from a 2000 z to a 98 v6.

    Also, what is the best way to clean an engine bay? Pics below. I have always been afraid of spraying the engine with water, etc. Good ole scrub down?

    Did you get a random misfire code or a specific cyl misfire code?

    I dont have a reader. The one I have isnt turning on... But at idle it is fine. If I rev it without moving (no load) is fine. It is when under load (driving) that the misfire happens.
