Can you replace a pre 1996 tbi engine with a vortec long block and use your tbi intake and tbi?
you can as long as you use your TBI heads if you want to use the vortec heads with TBI you will need a special intake manifold or a carb manifold with a adapter to mount your throttle body to the carb manifold heres some more info TBI heads will mount to the vortec block TBI intake manifold has 12 bolts vortec intake manifold has 8 bolts
NO it will not. You would need the heads off the vortec engine to make it all work. The 96 that you are talking about should be a VORTEC engine already from the factory. But you may have an early 96 and that is why it is a TBI engine. That was the year they switch to a vortec. 96 TBI no such animal,TBI OBD2 no
That is a common problem with the vortec 350 engines. The intake manifold gasket starts leaking in the corners of it. That is where the water jackets are and it's only about 1/4 of an inch wide and when it starts leaking it allows engine coolant to leak into the lifter gallery and into the oil. Need to replace intake gasket as long as you no it did not freeze and crack the engine block.
Just had intake gasket done on 350 and I believe block was not drained properly if antifreeze was left in engine how fast would it wreck engine?
Where is the engine block of a 1999 Lexus rx 300 and do I need to take the engine block to replace the knock sensors?
Your engine block is the main part of your engine that holds the crankshaft and pistons internally. Your knock sensors, there are two, are screwed into the top of the engine block in the valley between the cylinder heads. You don't have to remove the engine block, you do have to remove the upper and lower intake manifolds to get to them. I changed the sensors in my 99 rx300, long day!
You have to take the block off and get to it first...I have a Chevy K1500 Z71 and I had to replace it but I had help.... The block is the lower part of the engine and has nothing to do with the intake gaskets. Go to a parts house or bookstore and buy a Haynes Manual and it will give you everything you need to know.
Yes, they will fit, and increase torque by a good amount. However, the Vortec heads used a vertical intake bolt design, so you will not be able to use your intake manifold. Side note on the vertical intake bolts, you also need to get Vortec specific intake bolts, because they bottom out in the heads to stop from overtightening and seal better. All in all, vortecs are a good purchase, if you have the money…
What if your 1992 Chevy silverado is leaking engine coolant from the top of the engine just below the distrubutor what is leaking?
There is a heater hose that goes to the left rear top side of the intake manifold and that fitting leaks engine coolant sometimes and it will run down the back of the intake around the distributor. If that fitting is not leaking then the intake manifold gasket is leaking coolant in the corners of it. REplace the intake gasket. That's all that can leak coolant on that year engine. If coolant is leaking out…
If you're referring to the 5.7L V-8 there is no fuel rail per se, rather, the 1997 Chevy Vortec motors have a fuel "block" called a 'Spider Injector' roughly 2 " x 5" x 3" located inside the two halves of the intake manifold. all 8 of your injectors are connected to this block with plastic tubing. To replace it you will have to remove the upper (plastic) portion of your intake manifold.
