What is the difference in the lower end of a 1982 GM motor and a 1996 GM motor?
1 piece rear main seal and the mounting location for the fuel pump is blocked off. May have bosses cast in lifter vally for hydrolic roller cam on the newer block
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
A 3.4 liter GM engine is an interference type motor which has very tight tolerances. If the timing is off slightly, it can result in catastrophic failure.
No... The Haynes repair book has it in there but I have taken apart and rebiult over a dozen GM 2.4L DOHC engines and NONE have had one of those oil slinger's. I have tried to… figure it out and have come up with "it wouldn't sling oil even if it had one". If you ever rebuild one, be sure to replace the oil check valve that is in the oil passage coming from the oil pump.It keeps the oil in the upper part of the engine after it is shut down. It is a ball bearing and a spring.No one ever say's anything about that part.
Until very reciently ExxonMobil made GM oil. that does not mean that is is standard Exxon or Mobil oil. many oil manufacturers custom blend oil for different retailers. Some h…igher performance GM vehicles came factory filled with Mobil 1 but that is changing as of 2011 model year. No word out from GM who their new supplier is - and if they are dropping the Mobil 1 factory fill. I guess we better research that and find out what is going on. But in answer to the question, it has been Exxonmobil that has been manufacturing GM Goodwrench oil
Regarding rear-drive usage, yes. Front-drive is way more complicated. Engines from front wheel drive cars do not swap to rear-drive vehicles, they are different, obviously. … The only real differences between a 2.8 and a 3.4 are internal. The 2.8 was given a longer stroke to make the 3.1, and the 3.1 was then given a wider bore to create the 3.4. The only real differences are piston-related. There were other minor changes over the years, of course, but the engines are generally a relatively easy swap from one to another since most engine peripherals swap right over. One exception is that the water pump from serpentine belt applications turns the opposite way from V-belt applications, so you have to use the setup that native to the donor engine or swap the water pump. Here's an excellent site for answers to questions regarding 60 degree Chevy V-6's and specifically S-10 series trucks. However, there's a lot of universal technical info on the engines and tips from experienced modders about potential swapping problems/solutions, including items specifically regarding 2.8 to 3.4 swaps. http://forums.s-series.org
back 1-3-5 front 2-4-6 1-4-6-3-5-2 Often the trio of dual coil packs are numbered accordingly. These coil packs can often be found mounted to the engine block under the forwa…rd cylinder bank exhaust manifold.
other than special exhaust manifold specifically designed for marine use, the lifter galley on the marine block is teflon coated. an RV type cam is used in marine motors, but …those can be changed.

There are four freeze plugs on a 1988 5.7 liter General Motors engine. There are to freeze plugs on each side of the engine.
No, they do not. In 2010 they added VVT which gave a slight improvement in HP and flattened the torque curve nicely. I have a 2010 LS extended cab with the 4.8 and I love it. …It still has the 4l60e, although I'd prefer the 6l80e that comes with the 5.3 and 6.2, but it's still a great truck. I consistently get much better mpg than what the EPA estimates are. I hear with the 5.3 with AFM your AFM works less with larger wheels/tires, because of the added mass moment of inertia they give you. For the Gen IV LS based motors, they are talking about AFM, dual VVT (seperate cams for intake and exhaust), and direct injection. That's for the trucks that are supposed to come out for the 2014 model year. That's about a year and a half out, so don't expect solid word on everything. It's getting about to the time they should start designing tooling for the factories to make the new trucks, so more solid word on the trucks should be out soon. Also, GM typically likes to introduce new LS based engines in the Corvettes. So for new corvette, expect to see a high-performance version of what you will see in the trucks. The trucks tend to have different intake manifolds and tuning to produce low end torque which ends up with a little less HP. That was a wordy answer, but that's what happens when a mechanical engineering student gets excited to answer your question. I'm an enginerd.
Saab Automobile is a Swedish manufacturer. GM initially bought 50% of Saab in 1999 and bought the rest of the company is 2000. They then sold Saab to Spyker Cars.
GM got out of this business because of the cost of producing the vehicles was higher than they could sell them for. IN the last 20 years we went from all manufactu…rers building MH chassis to just three specialist manufacturers.
