The fourth-generation Chevrolet Corvette was a ground-up redesign. It had aluminium suspension and brake calipers in the interests of saving weight, and although the engine was carried over, it had fractionally more power. However, the engine was replaced with a 230bhp V8 in 1985. A troublesome manual gearbox was offered between 1984 and 1988, but this was replaced by a six-speed manual in 1989. The Corvette was facelifted in 1991, and the following year a 300hp engine was introduced, along with traction control. The car’s production finished in 1996, with the limited-run 330hp Grand Sport as its sign off. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Chevrolet repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Chevrolet Corvette repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
