I have a 1988 camaro with a 2.8 v6. The car has a slight misfire and idles between 1,500-2,000 rpm and sometimes dies in gear. What could be making it do this?

A high idle is usually a vacuum leak. Check the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. If it's stuck open it'll give you a high idle. Did you replace the rotor, wires and spark plugs when you changed the distributor cap? You should have. Your car should be tuned up every 30,000 miles or 30 months. Whichever comes first. HTH. -Jim

The fact that it has the 2.8 liter V-6.
