Chilton and Haynes both print excellent manuals for individual vehicles with step by step instructions on all kinds of repairs. You can find them on line, just enter Chilton Motor Manual in the search engine.

Chilton & Haynes manuals are cheap and everywhere, but spend the extra $35 and get the GM repair manual from your local dealership, you will spend way less time pulling your hair out. Other descent resources online are All-Data (refered to in the industry jokingly as No-Data) or Mitchell-On Demand both have websites. They are fee based (yearly subscriptions) with these you can look up any vehicle in their database and print out there instructions during your subscription time. The GM manual is going to be by far your best bet if you own this vehicle for all of your future repairs in the long run.

NO. That would be the TBI / throttle body injection engine Not a vortec. The vortec will not work in the 91.

As far as a direct bolt in NO. But if you have the smarts and the know how, you can put anything in there.

No, the LS2 is an all aluminum 6.0 liter engine. The 5.3L engine in the 2000 Silverado is an LM7 version of the Vortec 5300.

A 2000 Silverado 5.3 Vortec that is hard to start and misses on one side of the engine might have a problem with the coil pack or the spark plugs. It could also mean that the block is cracked if the engine is prone to overheating.
