1994 C4 Corvette

1994 Corvette Overview

For both owners and enthusiasts alike, 1994 was a significant year for the Chevy Corvette – not because of any significant changes to the car itself, but because of two key announcements made by Chevrolet.   First, after years of planning and fund-raising on the part of both Chevrolet and private contributors, the Corvette Museum would finally open on September 2, 1994.

For the grand opening ceremonies, four-thousand Corvettes from virtually every one of the Continental United States would be present.  Throughout the three days of opening festivities, 118,000 visitors would tour the museum.

Chevrolet provided a number of significant Corvettes “on permanent loan” to the museum – including the original Sting Ray and the Mako II.  Both Zora Arkus-Duntov and Dave McLellan were present for the event.  Second, General Motors announced that an all new C5 Corvette was on track for the 1997 model year.

In fact, much of the Corvette design team had been re-assigned to the C5 program, and were already focused on testing the new model, which was why the C4 remained mostly unchanged for 1994.

That’s not to say that there weren’t any changes made in the 1994 model year.  The LT-1 engine was bolstered up to include a more powerful ignition system for shorter starting times, especially in cold weather.  Additionally, a new sequential fuel injection system was introduced for better throttle response, idle quality, overall drivability and lower tailpipe emissions.

DID YOU KNOW: Twenty five Corvette convertibles were deemed “official cars” for the inaugural NASCAR Brickyard 400 race at the Indianapolis Speedway. In all, twelve black and thirteen red Corvettes were produced for this historic occasion. All twenty-five of these Corvettes received a boost in horsepower, enabling them to be used to run ”Hot Laps” at the Indianapolis Speedway. Additionally, these Corvettes were used for specific pre-race parade vehicles to transport NASCAR drivers around the track.

Matching the engine’s refinements was the Corvette’s first electronically controlled automatic transmission, which offered drivers smoother and more consistent shifting than the previous model’s all-mechanical four-speed.   Additionally, a lockout switch was installed on the new automatic gearbox which required drivers to depress and hold the brake pedal before shifting out of “park”.  This last addition was installed as a response to industry concerns regarding “unintended acceleration.”  For its own part, the ZR-1 received a boost in performance to 405 horsepower (a fact which would eventually make the 1994-1995 ZR-1 Corvettes the most desirable and collectible of them all.)

There were no cosmetic changes made to the exterior of the 1994 Corvette.  The only visible difference that differentiated the 1994 Corvette from earlier years was the introduction of two new colors – Admiral Blue and Copper Metallic (although Copper Metallic was limited to only 116 cars due to limited availability).

For the ZR-1 Corvette, non-directional, five-spoke wheels were introduced and included as part of the RPO ZR1 package option.  These wheels were not made available on the base model coupe or convertible (although the same five spoke wheel package would be offered on the Grand Sport and Collector’s edition Corvettes 1996.)

 

A significant, functional improvement was made to the tires on the 1994 Corvette.  While the Corvette was already equipped with “Z-rated” tires, optional Goodyear “run-flat” tires were offered to consumers for the first time.  These Goodyear Extended Mobility tires (RPO WY5) were developed with special bead construction that enabled them to be driven on with no air.

When ordering this option, consumers were also required to purchase the low pressure tire warning system option (RPO UJ6) because if the tire was to run deflated for a distance greater than 50 miles, damage to either the tire, the rim, or both could result.

However, despite the potential for damage to these components, the safe driving range on a deflated tire was considerably further than 50 miles.

The interior of the 1994 Corvette received virtually no upgrades either, although a few standard options were added including a passenger side airbag and knee bolster – both of which were introduced to help bring the Corvette into compliance with the second phase of the federal governments “passive restraint” safety requirements.

The passenger side airbag actually took the place of the dashboard glovebox and, as a result, stowage compartments were incorporated into each of the door mounted arm rests to compensate for this loss of storage.

Leather seats were also made standard and were available in both base and “sport” versions.  Less restrictive bolsters were included to accommodate larger passengers and to facilitate easier entry and exit.  The seat controls were moved from the front of the seats to the center console of the Corvette, and these controls allowed considerable control of the sports seats, including adjustable lumbar support and side bolster adjustments.

The most notable physical design change to the 1994 Corvette was the redesigned steering wheel.  To most critics, the new design, which featured a simplified, two-spoke steering wheel, was actually considered a functional downgrade from its predecessor, which had featured spokes at the “10” and “2” positions in addition to the remaining two spokes which carried over into the 1994 design.

After a 20 year absence from participation in the 24 Hours of LeMans, a special edition Corvette, prepared by Reeves Callaway, out-ran every competitor in the GT2 Class during qualifying. After running in first place for 6 hours, it would later run out of gas due to a fuel consumption mis-calculation. However, the Corvette would achieve a greater measure of success later that same year when it would outrun ten Porsche 911 racers and finish first in the GT class and second overall at a four-hour endurance race in Vallelunga, Italy.

There were other changes made to the interior as well.  A one-touch “express down” driver’s side power window was added to the 1994 Corvette.  Additionally, new dashboard instrumentation had been modified.  The interior dashboard light colors were changed from white to tangerine.   Environmentally friendly R134 refrigerant replaced the ozone-layer-damaging R12 Freon.  On the convertibles, the rear windows were now made out of glass instead of plastic and now included a standard rear-window defogger.

Despite the limited number of cosmetic and mechanical changes, the sale of 1994 Corvettes actually rose to 23,330 units despite a modest price increase to $36,185.  Even with the increase in Corvette sales, the ZR-1 Corvette sales continued to suffer with only 448 units sold in 1994.  Given the year over year decline in ZR-1 sales, it was announced by General Motors that 1995 would be the last year for their “King of the Hill”.

A sufficient number of LT5 engines had been assembled by Mercury Marine to allow for the production of 448 Corvettes a year through the end of 1995 and it was only because of this fact that the ZR-1 continued production at all, especially given the overall lack of sales of the high end Corvette.

Still, even with the arrival of the C5 Corvette on the horizon, there were those within the Corvette design and engineering teams that were pushing for a unique, special edition Corvette to close out the C4’s thirteen year run.   While these special edition Corvettes were still two years into the future, the foundation was already being laid within GM by many of it’s key players – including then Chief Engineer John Heinricy and Dave Hill – to introduce a final iteration of the C4 Corvette to the world.

With many pitfalls still ahead of them, it seemed uncertain that anyone would embrace the idea, but through the insistence and determination of Heinricy throughout the remaining years of the C4’s production, the best was still to come.

Base Corvette Sport Coupe (1YY07)

  • The base price of the 1994 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe without any optional equipment.
  • A 350 cubic inch, 300 horsepower engine, 4-speed automatic transmission, removable body-color roof panel, a Delco stereo system with cassette, and leather seats were included in the base price.
  • Preferred Equipment Group One included electronic air conditioning control, Delco-Bose stereo system with cassette, and power driver seat for an additional $1,333.00.
  • For the 1994 Corvette, all seats were now leather as cloth seating was no longer available – either as part of the standard equipment package or as an optional upgrade. Both base model and optional “sport” seats were made available. Both variants featured less restrictive bolsters to accommodate a wider range of body sizes and for greater ease when entering or exiting the vehicle.
  • The base engine for the 1994 Corvette was the LT1 small block. In 1994 Corvettes, the engine developed 300 horsepower (net) at 5,000 rpms. The engine torque was rated at 340 lbs. -ft at 3,600 rpm. Several refinements were added including a new sequential fuel injection system which improved throttle response, idle quality, drivability and emissions by firing injectors in sequence with the engine’s firing order. A more powerful ignition system was also introduced which reduced engine start times, especially in cold weather environments.
  • The exterior design was carried over from 1993, but two new exterior colors were made available: Admiral Blue & Copper Metallic. Unfortunately, due to quality concerns relating to paint durability, the Copper Metallic color was only applied to 116 Corvettes.
  • The front wheels on the 1994 Corvette were 8.5 x 17 and the front tire sizes were P255/45ZR17. Rear tire size was P285/40ZR17.
    The standard 4-speed automatic transmission was redesigned with electronic controls for improved shift quality and rpm shift-point consistency. Additionally, a shift safety interlock was included which required depression of the brake pedal in order to shift the Corvette out of “PARK”.
  • A passenger-side airbag and knee bolster, new seat and door trim panel designs, “express down” driver’s side power window, and a redesigned two-spoke steering wheel (with included airbag) were added to the interior. New white instrument graphics were added which had an orange/tangerine glow at night.
  • The tire jack was relocated from the exterior spare tire well to a compartment behind the passenger seat.

Additionally, the six-speed manual transmission (MN6) was required.
  • Horsepower for the optional ZR1’s LT5 32-valve engine was rated at 405bhp.
  • Despite its similar appearance to the 1994 LT1 Corvette, the ZR-1 still received unique doors and rear body panels to accept the 11-inch wide rear wheels. The high mount center stop lamp for the 1994 ZR-1s continued to be roof mounted.
    The LT5 Engines were assembled by Mercury Marine in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and were then shipped to the Corvette plant in Bowling Green Kentucky for ZR1 Corvette assembly.
  • Chevrolet service departments returned LT5 engines to Mercury Marine for certain repairs. Customers were given the choice of a replacement engine or return of their original engine, if repairable.
  • The ZR1 option was only available in the coupe bodystyle.

Notes:

  • After several years of fundraising under the direction of the National Corvette Museum Foundation, and it’s president – Dan Gale, the National Corvette Museum opened to the public on September 2, 1994 in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
    Twenty-five convertibles were “official cars” for the inaugural NASCAR Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis. Some were later sold to retail customers.
  • Air conditioning systems were revised to use R-134a refrigerant instead of the more volatile R12, which had a known history of damaging the ozone layer.

1994 Corvette Common Issues

The following list of common issues is intended for individual reference only, and may not reflect the specific issues of every 1994 Corvette. This information comes from a variety of sources including the NHTSA Defects Reports pages. While the intent of this page is to identify the common issues pertaining to the 1994 Corvette, it is not an all-inclusive list and should be used for reference only.

Mechanical Issues

Engine

The Opti-Spark Ignition System has been known to fail on late model C4 Corvettes (those equipped with PFI V8 engines).

Failure of the Opti-Spark Ignition System may prevent the vehicle from starting.

Failure of the Ignition Lock Cylinder occurs, though infrequently, preventing the vehicle from starting.

The LT1 engine is prone to engine oil leaks, most especially around the front and rear of the intake manifold. The manifold was sealed at the ends with RTV rather than gasket material and tended to leak even straight from the factory. Other common areas to check for oil leaks on the engine include: the timing chain cover, the valve covers, the waterpump drive seal, the oil pan, and the front and rear main bearing seals.

The LT1 engine often exhibits a rough idle at start-up, especially after the car has been sitting for an extended period of time. The most probable cause of the idling issue is fouled injectors. In many instances, adding a fuel stabilizer and/or fuel injection cleaner to the fuel tank helps resolve this issue.

Transmission

A transmission leak may occur from the pump body on 4L60-E transmissions due to the pump bushing walking out of the valve body.

It should be noted the ZF6 transmission is somewhat noisy (particularly in neutral with the clutch out)

The transmission is controlled by an electronic control unit. In some instances, this unit is known to fail, causing erratic transmission shifting problems resulting in drivability issues.
The automatic transmission is known to lock up in second gear.

Radiator

It is quite common for road debris and trash to get sucked up between the radiator and the A/C condensor, thereby blocking air flow and causing the engine to overheat. This area should be inspected and cleaned out at regular intervals.
Check the underside of the radiator for signs of leaking coolant, the side tanks on the factory radiator are constructed of plastic and may be cracked and leaking on a higher mileage car.

Braking System

The anti-lock braking system fails unexpectedly during normal driving conditions resulting in loss of vehicle control.

Exterior Issues

Body/Frame Rigidity

Several instances have been reported of body vibration when the removable top is off the vehicle. The vibration becomes excessive during operation at highway speeds. These same vibrations can cause loss of vehicle control/vehicle stability.

Interior Issues

Dashboard

The digital dashboard has a tendency to stop operating on occasion, although it may operate normally on the next start-up. Possible causes for the intermittent issue include bad wiring and aging/damaged dash-illuminating light bulbs.

Seat Belts & Safety Restraints

In some instances, the shoulder harness of the driver’s seat belt has failed to restrain driver during crash condition, causing driver to sustain injury against steering wheel/dashboard.

Maintenance Information

The 1993 Corvette has an Engine Oil Life Monitor. This monitor will show drivers when to change their oil – usually between 3,000 miles (5,000 km) and 7,500 miles (12,500 km) since the last oil change.  Under severe conditions the indicator may come on before 3,000 miles (5,000 km).  Never drive your vehicle more than 7,500 miles (12,500 km) or 12 months whichever occurs first, without an oil change.

The system won’t detect dust in the oil.  If you drive in a dusty area be sure to change your oil every 3,000 miles (5,000 km) or sooner if the CHANGE OIL light comes on.  Remember to reset the Oil Life Monitor when the oil has been changed.  See “GM Oil Life System” (at the bottom of this page) for more information on resetting the system.

Explanation of Scheduled Maintenance Services:

Engine Oil and Filter Change: Use only API Service SG Energy Conserving II oils of the proper viscosity.*  The engine requires a special oil meeting GM Standard GM4718M.  Oils meeting this Standard may be identified as synthetic, and should also be identified as API Service SG.  However, not all Synthetic API Service SG oils will meet this GM Standard.  You should look for and use only an oil that meets GM Standard GM4718M.

Chassis Lubrication: Lubricate the transmission shift linkage, parking brake cable guides, underbody contact points and linkage.   Lubricate the front suspension.

Engine Accessory Drive Belt Inspection: Inspect the belts for cracks, fraying, wear and proper tension.  Replace as needed.

Cooling System Service: Drain, flush and refill the system with new or approved recycled coolant conforming to GM Specification 1825M.  Keep coolant at the proper mixture as specified.  This provides proper freeze protection, corrosion inhibitor level and engine operating temperature.

Inspect hoses and replace if they are cracked, swollen or deteriorated.  Tighten screw-type hose clamps.  Clean the outside of the radiator and air conditioning condenser.  Wash the pressure cap and neck.

To help ensure proper operation, we recommend a pressure test of both the cooling system and the pressure cap.

Transmission Service: For manual transmissions, the fluid doesn’t require changing.

For automatic transmissions, change both the fluid and filter every 15,000 miles (25,000 kilometers) if the vehicle is mainly driven under one or more of these conditions: heavy city traffic where the outside temperature regularly reaches 90°F (32°C) or higher, in hilly or mountainous terrain. Uses such as found in taxi, police or delivery service.  If you do not use your vehicle under any of these conditions, change the fluid and filter at 100,000 miles (166,000 kilometers).

Spark Plug Replacement: Replace spark plugs with the proper type.

Spark Plug Wire Inspection: Inspect for burns, cracks or other damage.  Check the boot fit at the coils and at the spark plugs.  Replace the wires as needed.

Air Cleaner Filter Replacement: Replace every 30,000 miles (50,000 kilometers) or more often under dusty conditions.  Ask your local dealership for proper intervals based on individual driving conditions.

Fuel Tank, Cap and Line Inspection: Inspect the fuel tank, cap, and lines (including fuel rails and injection assembly) for damage and leaks.  Inspect fuel cap gasket for an even filler neck imprint or any damage.  Replace parts as needed.  Periodic replacement of the fuel filter is not required.

Owner Inspection & Service Items

At Each Fuel Fill

It is important for you or a service station attendant to perform these underhood checks at each fuel fill.

Engine Oil Level Check: Check the engine oil level and add the proper oil if necessary. If you have a ZR-1 you should check your engine oil when the engine is cold.

Engine Coolant Level Check: Check the engine coolant level and add the proper coolant mixture if necessary.

Windshield Washer Fluid Level Check: Check the windshield washer fluid level in the windshield washer tank and add the proper fluid if necessary.

At Least Once a Month

Tire Inflation Check: Make sure tires are inflated to the correct pressures specified on the Tire-Loading Information Label located on the rear edge of the driver door.

At Least Once A Year

Key Lock Cylinder Service: Lubricate the key lock cylinders.

Body Lubrication Service: Lubricate all body door hinges. Also lubricate all hinges and latches, including those for the hood, rear compartment, console door and any folding seat hardware.  More frequent lubrication may be required when exposed to a corrosive environment.

Starter Switch Check: CAUTION: When you are doing this check, the vehicle could move suddenly.  If it does, you or others could be injured. Before you start, be sure you have enough room around the vehicle.

Firmly apply the parking brake and the regular brake.  (NOTE: Do not use the accelerator pedal, and be ready to turn off the engine immediately  if it starts.)

On automatic transmission vehicles, try to start the engine in each gear. The starter should work only in PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N). If the starter works in any other position, your vehicle needs service.

On manual transmission vehicles, put the shift lever in NEUTRAL (N), push the clutch down halfway and try to start the engine. The starter should work only when the clutch is pushed down all the way to the floor.  If the starter works when the clutch isn’t pushed all the way down, your vehicle needs service.

Steering Column Lock Check: While parked, and with the parking brake set, try to turn the ignition key to OFF in each shift lever position. With an automatic transmission, the key should turn to LOCK only when the shift lever is in PARK (P). With a manual transmission, the key should turn to LOCK only when the shift lever is in REVERSE (R).

On all vehicles, the key should come out only in LOCK.

Parking Brake and Automatic Transmission PARK (P) Mechanism Check:

CAUTION: When you are doing this check, your vehicle could begin to move. You or others could be injured and property could be damaged. Make sure there is room in front of your vehicle in case it begins to roll. Be ready to apply the regular brake at once should the vehicle begin to move.

Park on a fairly steep hill, with the vehicle facing downhill.  Keeping your foot on the regular brake, set the parking brake.

To check the parking brake’s holding ability: With the engine running and transmission in NEUTRAL (N), slowly remove foot pressure from the regular brake pedal. Do this until the vehicle is held by the parking brake only.

To check the PARK (P) mechanism’s holding ability: With the engine running, shift to PARK (P). Then release the parking brake followed by the regular brake.

Underbody Flushing Service: At least every spring, use plain water to flush any corrosive materials from the underbody. Take care to clean thoroughly any areas where mud and other debris can collect.

Dealership Inspection & Service Items

At Least Twice A Year

Steering and Suspension Inspection: Inspect the front and rear suspension and steering system for damaged, loose or missing parts, signs of wear or lack of lubrication. Inspect the power steering lines and hoses for proper hook-up, binding, leaks, cracks, chafing, etc.

Tire and Wheel Inspection: Inspect the tires for uneven wear or damage. If there is irregular or premature wear, check the wheel alignment.  Inspect for damaged wheels.

Exhaust System Inspection: Inspect the complete exhaust system. Inspect the body near the exhaust system. Look for broken, damaged, missing or out-of-position parts as well as open seams, holes, loose connections or other conditions which could cause a heat build-up in the floor pan or could let exhaust fumes into the vehicle.

Rear Axle Service: Check the gear lubricant level in the rear axle and add if needed.  A fluid loss may indicate a problem. Check the axle and repair it if needed.

Brake System Inspection:Inspect the complete system. Inspect brake lines and hoses for proper hook-up, binding, leaks, cracks, chafing, etc. Inspect disc brake pads for wear and rotors for surface condition. Inspect other brake parts, including calipers, parking brake, etc.  You may need to have your brakes inspected more often if your driving habits or conditions result in frequent braking.

NOTE: A low brake fluid level can indicate worn disc brake pads which may need to be serviced.  Also if the brake light stays on or comes on, something may be wrong with the brake system.  If your anti-lock brake system warning light stays on, come on or flashes, something may be wrong with the anti-lock braking system.

GM Oil Life System

Your vehicle has a computer that lets you know when to change your engine oil. This is not based on mileage, but on engine revolutions and engine operating temperature. When the computer has calculated that the oil needs changing, the GM Oil Life System will indicate that a change is necessary. The mileage between oil changes will vary depending on how you drive your vehicle — usually between 3,000 miles (5 000 km) and 10,000 miles (16 000 km) since your last oil and filter change. Under severe conditions, the system may come on before 3,000 miles (5 000 km). Never drive your vehicle more than 10,000 miles (16 000 km) or 12 months (whichever occurs first) without an oil change. Use engine oil meeting the GM Standard GM4718M.

The system won’t detect dust in the oil. So, if you drive in a dusty area, be sure to change your oil and filter every 3,000 miles (5 000 km) or sooner if the CHANGE OIL SOON message appears. Remember to reset the system whenever the oil is changed.

How to Reset the Change Oil Soon Message
To reset the CHANGE OIL SOON message after an oil change, do the following:
1. Turn the ignition to ON and with the engine off.
2. Press the TRIP button so the OIL LIFE percentage is displayed.
3. Press RESET and hold for two seconds. OIL LIFE REMAIN 100% will appear.
