New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 18, 1994, New Braunfels, Texas Friday Feb Id 1334 Wheels Little touches make a difference Chevrolet Corsica features a redesigned drive train for 1994 David Sullens The big news with Chevrolets Coisica this year is the popular com pact family sedans redesigned drive trains The Corsica offers a choice of either fouror sixcylinder powerplants The cars four cylinder is the engine of choice by a threetoone margin in the Corsica In its redesigned form this engine produces 120 horsepower 10 more than last years version while also improv ing fuel economy It does all that via a host of frictionreducing design changes including lightweight assemblies and a new assembled roller lifter camshaft that consists of separate lobes and journals that are permanently locked onto a hollow tube Using a specialized assembly process called all camshaft component pieces are positioned in their relative locations on the hol low steel shaft This loosely fit camshaft is then placed in an assembly fixture and the camshaft components are aligned and secured A steel ball which is larger than the inside diameter of the camshaft tube is then forced through the hollow shaft expanding its diam eter As the ball passes through each compo nent the expansion of the shaft creates an inter ference fit that secures the component to the tube Chevrolet engineers say the interference fit is capable of holding each cam component in position to withstand torque far greater than the demands of the LN2 After the camshaft is assembled straighten ing drilling turning grinding surface hard ening and polishing functions bring it to its state An advantage of this new process is that dif ferent types of materials can be combined in the creation of a single camshaft The assem The new drive train design is the biggest change In the new Corsica bled camshaft for example consists of three different steel alloys and a cast iron gear Con ventional camshafts typically were ground from a single steel billet Optional aboard the Corsica for 94 is a liter V6 that produces 20 more horsepower up from 140 to 160 plus an estimated two mile pergallon improvement in city and highway mileage The 3100 V6 has sequential fuel injection a high resolution 24X ignition system an assem bled roller lifter camshaft a cast aluminum structural oil pan and composite rocker covers The Corsicas redesigned V6 is teamed with submitted photo General Motors sophisticated 4T60E auto matic transmission This smart foufspeed delivers a seamless flow of torque as the pow ertrain module integrates the engine and trans mission controls The new transmissions reliability will be enhanced by its new lowfriction chain design highstrength third clutch and premium gear package Also
