Since no one responded, I did this one on my own. 1. Disconnect both battery terminals ( safety first ) 2. Use a 3/8 ratchet to disengage the serpentine belt tensioner and put some slack in the serpentine belt to remove from the alternator. Sounds worse than it is, but may require two people if you can't use two hands at once. 3. Once the belt is off, you can now start to remove the alternator. 4. There are three bolts - two on the front and one behind near the top of the unit. Note: there is also a bolt directly behind the alternator that holds what appears to be a ground wire from the battery. 5. Once the bolts are removed, I used a screwdriver to gently pry the alternator loose - no problems. 6. Turning the alternator so I can see the back of it, remove the electrical connector. 7. Using an open faced wrench and ratchet wrench, loosen the bolt holding the ground wire. This will look like a spark plug cover on the back, but it's just a bolt. REMOVAL DONE Now reverse the steps with the new unit and reassemble in that order. Starting the vehicle it ran a little sluggis as it took time for everything to reset, but after about a 20-30 minute drive, all was well and guage is happily back to 14 now. I ordered the part online for about 90 dollars with a core charge return of $16.00 Total time took me about an hour - ( I took my time ) If I had to do it again, it would take about 1/2 hour.
Yes it will bolt right up to it.
The fuel lines around the filter; you will need an adapter.
Clockwise, 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.
It should be on the front of the intake manifold directly above and behind the water pump.
Don't know what year you have but some sensors are temperature sensitive and you should run a 195 degree thermostat.
There is one before and one after the catalytic converter.

The EGR valve on your Astrovan is on the backside of the intake manifold just under the throttle body attached by two bolts. After installing a new gasket be sure and torque the BOLTS to 17-18ft lbs or the NUTS (if yours has studs) to 15ft lbs)
There is no adjustment required, but you can clean it with a carb cleaner.
Use an exhaust made for an LT1 engine the blocks are identical it is the insides that is different. Will bolt right on.
remove the intake hose and the exhaust port screwed into the egr valve, the remove the two retaining bolts from the intake and clean any old gasket material away. if possible run a piece of wire down the hole to make certain the passage is clear of carbon build up

sounds like a vacuum leak
all distributors have some kind of centrifugal advance, you will be able to see if you take the distributor cap and rotor off. have a look at the base plate to see.
E`bay --Ebay motors ,,search chevy, blazer s10, I have found and seen motors as low as 600.00, for blazers,If you can`t find it let me know and i`ll find the e`bay store and let you khow what it is.. Jasper engines are the best rebuit engines that I have seen and have a backed up warranty. I'm sure there is a dealer near you that installs them.
You need a special tool, a harmonic balancer puller. Go to Autozone and they will usually lend you one for free. VBD
I have a '90 so I think it would be the same, on mine it is at the front of the engine on the bottom pulley. (crankshaft pulley or vibration dampener) To view the scale and mark I have to look down, a little on the drivers side of center. Beside the break resivour is a good viewpoint, looking just over the timing light. I have to run the timing pickup coil in through the drivers door or window and into the open doghouse cover. Good luck. God Bless!
0 degrees,should say right on the fan shroud on the same sticker that tells the spark plug gap. In order to time it correctly you must unhook the esc electronic spark control wire which is a tan wire with a black stripe located under the black cover on the passenger side firewall. It may set off a service engine soon light. When your done timing it unhook the battery cable and the light should go out.
Go to your library and see if they have a Chiltons manual otherwise go to a bookstore and buy one, they are cheap. I have never worked on one of the V-6 engines but setting the timing usually involves rotating the distributor and using a timing light. I am not sure if this is the case on computer controlled engines since I have never had to set the timing on any newer car I have worked on. If it is bad and you have a lot of miles, you may have a timing belt going bad. They get loose when they get old and often jump a notch. VBD
as far as i know the 4.3 is a v6 which is actually based off of the 5.7. gm just cut 2 cylindars off if there is a difference it will be the heat range on the plugs for your info, the Chevy 4.3 ltr in a 94-96 caprice is a 265 v-8, do some research before giving info on engines you know nothing about. oh and by the way, the power rating in a stock 4.3 v8 is higher than a stock 5.0 and also the correct answer is NO, the spark plugs are no different than the 305 or the 350.
What year is the gtp, if 95 or newer yes, if gtp is in the 80's then no due to pollution restrictions today, and may have to change the computers from each vehicle. Each computer is set to specs for the engine it controls.
first check to see if your getting voltage to your fuel pump. go to the connector at the rear of the truck. check voltage. should have 12 volts. if you do have 12 volts your pump has gone bad. this happens some times. if you don`t have voltage find your fuel pump relay. (right side kick panel) see if it comes on. on some models the relay is built into the computer box. if it is in the computer box the computer box needs to be replaced. also check to see if your fuel pump fuze is blown.
