Black smoke just means that it's starting a little rich, but no real problem. Grey smoke probably means that you have a little "cylinder washdown", meaning that you're probably leaking a little fuel when you turn off the engine. Check the throttle body injector to make sure it's not leaking when you turn off the engine. Fuel drips into the engine, washes down/dilutes any oil that's on the cylinder wall, and when you start the engine it can cause blue smoke. If the injector is leaking, it could just be dirty. Try a can of injector cleaner.
If the Chevrolet dealer installed the engine then the engine has a 3 year 75,000 mile warranty and that makes it their problem. Return to them for the fix.
If your vehicle is not under warrenty, then it is best to shop around and get a few quotes.
The dealer uses the factory catalytic converter. The muffler shop uses a generic brand replacement part that may or may not be of the same quality.The dealer uses the factory catalytic converter. The muffler shop uses a generic brand replacement part that may or may not be of the same quality.
You wont find a dealer to do it. Must be after market conversion.
Several dealerships nationwide sell conversion vans. What dealer has the broadest selection depends on where you live.
At a muffler shop-150.00 (approx) A dealer-800.00 (approx)
I suggest you take your vehicle to a muffler shop or dealer for this repair.
Midas Dallas is one of the muffler repair shop. Any auto body repair shop should be able to replace or fix your muffler problem. If not, take you car back to the car dealer, they should be happy to serve you.
Any muffler shop can replace it for around 125.00. DO NOT go to the dealer.
Like a muffler. Most muffler shops can do it. About 125.00 for converter plus labor. That's the cheapest way to get it done since they do it all day. The dealer or elsewhere will gouge you.
130.00-200.00 at a muffler shop. Stay away from the dealer.
Any muffler shop can do it for you. It's routine & has to be welded in. Don't go to the dealer-they will ream you.
Lack of a muffler is not so important legally as whether the tailpipe still extends beyond the edge of the body, which we're assuming is not the case here. This will allow CO to accumulate under the vehicle, a big no-no.
muffler shop doesnt want to do the job just go to one of the places you have seen that have them
One can find conversion vans through numerous trading websites, like eBay or Craiglist. One can also find conversion vans through one's local car dealer.
Try replacing your current 2 stroke oil with 100 percent synthetic 2 stroke oil. Available at any motorsports dealer. Worked for my Razz. Has not smoked since.
Exhaust system, before the muffler. You will have one convertor and possibly 2 pre convertors prior to that that look like mufflers. If you need a new one go to a muffler shop. They charge like 150 and the dealer will charge 800
No. It is called theft by conversion.
Your cloest dealer for a conversion van will be in Charlotte. I would suggest checkinig out Ilderton Conversion 5518 Westpark Drive Charlotte, NC 28217-3502 (704) 523-2022
any dealer will have a conversion kit but i think they will need to do it.
if is bank 1 it will it the 1000 from the dealer because is a direc fit but if is bank 2 could be 200 or 250 and any muffler shop can replace it
no as long as you dont mess with the cat. converters You might want to ask your dealer first.
It is double wall pipe all the way and because they can. A muffler shop should be able to replace all of it with single wall and you will not notice any difference. Prices vary but the whole system should be 1/3 to 1/4 the cost of dealer pipe.
yes. pep boys, any big box auto parts store will fix you up. higher end? you can go that way too. Just stay away from the dealer. signed an ex dealer mechanic
The best place to look for a new conversion van would be at your local dealer. They will be able to custom make it for you according to your preference and possibly be able to get you a deal on it.
From the research that I have done, this process is very costly. Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, the conversion can run from 2-10,000 dollars. I would recommend only a dealer perform this.
