The coil pack is located on the passenger side of the motor in a 1996 GMC Sonoma 4.3L Vortec Engine. The spark plugs plug into the coil pack eliminating the spark plug wires.

Where are the freeze plugs located on a 2003 GMC Sonoma 4.3L Vortec engine?

The Cam Sensor in a 1996 GMC Sonoma is located in the distributor under the rotor cap

135 from front to back located on the drivers side or right.246 front to back located passenger or left.

Apparently, there is none. They started using them in 1996.

It is located at the top side rear of the engine block and right next to the distributor.

I have a 1996 305, Vortec with that number on it.

It is screewed into the passenger side of the engine just in front of the starter. It is hard to see.

The 1995 350 or 5.7L has a T.B.I. and standard heads. 1996 its a C.P.I. and Vortec heads.

The 88 engine is a TBI / Throttle Body injection engine. I don't know the month of 1996 when they changed to the vortec engine fuel system, But I believe it was in late 1996. You should know if the 1996 engine is a TBI engine or a vortec engine if you have Sean it. So if it is a TBI engine then you have no problems, Put it in there and hook everything up and your good to go. Now if it's a vortec engine you have problems, None of the wireing will hook up to the 88 engine sensors. And the 96 computer will not run the 88 engine. And the fuel pump in the 96 Tahoe has to much fuel pressure for a TBI engine. You can not put the vortec fuel system/ intake manifold on the 88 engine because none of the intake bolts will match the heads or vise verse. You will be opening a can of worms. You need to go back with a vortec engine if that is whats in the Tahoe now.

By running the vins and serial numbers on the VORTEC engine its self and going to the DMV you might have to pay them $50 but it will give you basically all the information on it! (:

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

The Vortec 5700 produces 255 horsepower (190 kW) and 330 ft·lbf (450 N·m) of torque.

there is an access panel in the back of the glove box.

There will be 3 core plugs on a 4.3L V6 Vortec engine: 1 each side of the block and one at the back, in the bellhousing area.

vortec trucks have MPI Multipoint fuel injection. yes it's not getting enough electic to the wires to fuel pump

under the hood on the passenger side, mounted on the fire wall

No, but if the 96 has the 5.7 Vortec engine then it will have different heads which give it more power. ETA Question: Can I put the '96 vortec heads and intake on the '93 engine? You will need a vortec specific manifold. Edelbrock makes one

You can put the Vortec in it if you have the wiring and ecm to run it. or you could use the Vortec heads and an aftermarket intake and really wake up your engine. The vortecs use a roller cam.

Driver's side under the hood in the Black box

That would be the O2 sensor located after the catalytic converter.

Yes they will with no problems. They are basicly the same heads, Just different CCs.
