Joel, that air dam is important as the center piece is angled to direct air upward for A/C and radiator cooling and reducing front end lift by limiting air getting under the car
Any auto parts or even Walmart sell a MAF, electronics spray cleaner, assure when putting the air-bridge back in that the couplers are on correctly so no un-metered air leaks which will cause bad fuel trims
You need to report on all error codes,
If gas cap not on tight is not the problem then it could be the check valves for the smog system are stuck or check for vacuum hose leaks for smog systems such as smog pump or EVAP
Harbor Freight sells a couple of good low standing floor jacks.
Thanks for your reply. I picked up an low profile jack at Harbor Freight yesterday, have some of the aluminum jack "pucks" on order and I have a gaggle of codes to report. Here goes:
28-TCS: C1288H, U1301H, C1241HC, C1284H
AO-LDCM: B2252H, B2202H, B2282H, B2264H, U1064H, U1096H, B2284H, B2262H
AO-RDCM: B2283H, B2285H, B2263H, U1064H, B2265H, U1096H (same as above...odd)
I did a bit of reading on C5 codes. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if there is an "H" next to the code that means it is "historical" and is not a "current" code which is indicated by the "C" next to the code.
I also have the 2002 Corvette FSM on order.
Regarding that center portion of the air dam, I will have to replace the skid plate/crash bar before I can install a new one. It is pretty banged up. Any recommendations on reputable places to order various parts and so forth? Corvettes are completely new to me, so I'm learning as I read through the forums but everyone has their favorite parts supplier...
Again, thank you very much for taking the time to point me in the right direction, Mike. Hope you had a good Monday.
