It should be on the front of the intake manifold directly above and behind the water pump. Read More
Don't know what year you have but some sensors are temperature sensitive and you should run a 195 degree thermostat. Read More
When on idle your 95 Blazer 43L runs really rough but when you push the gas it smooths out until you let off then it runs rough again what are somethings that could be the problem?
sounds like a vacuum leak Read More
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. Read More
How do you get the crank shaft pully and balancer off a 1994 43L v-8 caprice classic if you are trying to change the timing chain?
You need a special tool, a harmonic balancer puller. Go to Autozone and they will usually lend you one for free. VBD Read More
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) Read More
Can you swap a 3800 supercharged 38l from a gtp into your 95 Chevrolet cheyenne that's two wheel drive and already has a 43l v6?
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. Read More
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 Read More
What else could be wrong if new fuel pump isn't humming and truck won't start in a 1996 Chevy Blazer 43L?
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… Read More

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… Read More
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… Read More
What type of flowmaster exhaust is best for changing a stock single exhaust to a dual on a 1994 43L Caprice?
honestly on my '93 i kept it single with the flowmaster and it isn't too loud but still has that big cat pur when driving... Answer You need to come up with a custom solution. You need to split off the pipes behind the cat. converter (before if you want but more money) and install 2 mufflers with 2 tail pipes. Flowmaster sells pipes and mufflers seperately and in the sizes you want. If you… Read More
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… Read More
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… Read More
Several possabilities. One is a bad PCV valve if it leads to that bank of cyl. Another is the intake gasket for that side of the engine. Worst case, but not likely as it is affecting all of the cyl, is a failed head gasket. One question, are the plugs fouling with fuel or oil? If over fueling, it could also be an injector or injector wireing issue. Could it also be bad oxygen sensors… Read More
The air conditioner on your 2000 43L Safari only blows air through the windshield vent and the control doesn't work how do you fix it?
I had the same thing happen on a trip to Florida this past fall. You have a broken vacuum line. Take the doghouse off and on either side of the intake manifold you will see a vacuum port with multiple lines coming from each. One side is for power assisted brakes, steering etc. The other side is for vacuum control of emmissions and air dampers of the heating/air-conditioning ducting. Trace out these lines and I… Read More
When on idle my 95 Blazer 43L runs really rough but when you push the gas it smooths out until you let off then it runs rough again what are somethings that could be the problem?
um start with the old compresion check jack um could be anything burt piston rings to timing being off i would suggest a complete tune up then compression check then if that's ok start checking voltage outputs of the coil/paks and ignition and emmisions controls sensors ect...... Answer It sounds like what my '94 was doing. It ended up being the fuel pressure Common problem with 1995 4.3 w central port injection is that the… Read More
Density = mass(in grams)/volume(in cc or mL) So, we need to get moles CO2 here with the ideal gas equation. ( 43 L = 43,000 mL and 30o C = 303.15 K, for next part ) PV =nRT (2.1 atm)(43 L) = n(0.08206 L*atm/mol*K)(303.15 K) n = 90.3/24.876 = 3.63 moles CO2 =============, Now, find grams CO2. 3.63 moles CO2 (44.01 grams/1 mole CO2) = 159.756 grams CO2 ================Now, to find density CO2. Density =… Read More
this is a pretty common question/problem, so here's what i answered to someone else (your 2000 is the same): on the 2001 gmc jimmy 4.3L v6 engine there are two air pump check valves: there's a pipe (about 1" diameter) that comes off each of the exhaust manifolds. the check valves are screwed onto those pipes. then a rubber hose (about 1.25" outside diameter) is clamped to the front of each check valve and connects… Read More
