  1. S10 / Sonoma
    Got a 94 engine and trans and a 2001 body. Will it plug and play?
  2. 262ci Forum (4.3)
    Hi, so my 91 S10 4.3 blew up. Injector stuck open and dumped over a gallon of gas into my oil pan going 60 on the highway. Engines toast. Crank destroyed and the rod bearings spun so bad it toasted the rods. I picked up a free low mileage 1985 4.3 from an el Camino. I plan to swap intakes and...

  3. Wheels, Tires & Brakes
    Hi all, This is my first post here and in all honesty I'm pretty green when it comes to just about everything mechanical (so go easy on me please.) However, I figured joining a forum like this with a lot of knowledgable individuals would be a good place to gain some knowledge of my own...
  4. S10 / S15
    Im trying to put one of these on an aftermarket filter, is it supposed to buzz? Would I have to adapt the hot air intake snorkel from the stock air cleaner for it to stop buzzing? Also just to be sure, is this thing for vacuum pressure orr temp?
  5. S10 / S15
    Replaced original air cleaner with edelbrock 14". Im just wondering how important is the diaphragm on the stock air cleaner? It was hooked up to the 's' on my tbi. The edelbrock air cleaner didnt have any temp sensor or anything so rn the air cleaner is not connected to anything else with hoses...

    Hello S10 Community. I'm new here, and have perused many, many forums and threads, looking for an answer to my question, but didn't find any. So, here goes... I have a 1992 Chevy S10 Blazer with the 4.3 V6 . When I first start it up from a cold start, it high-idles for about 1 minute until it...

    I have a 1996 ZR2 (4.3) and an ongoing issue that it has is overheating at idle. This happens in hot weather as well as cooler weather. As soon as I start moving (doesn't have to be highway speeds) the temp drops back down. Less than a year ago I flushed out the coolant system and put new...
  8. S10 / Sonoma
    My Truck has been running really well since buying her in October of 2021. I did the MFI upgrade from the spider injection, and she has been purring like a kitten. Very recently I have been experiencing a problem, where by if I drive her for more then a few hours, she starts to randomly shut...
  9. S10 / Sonoma
    So I just got me a 1995 GMC Sonoma 4.3L V6, I wanna get some headers for it and I tried going to summit racing but they said no headers will fit it, I'm brand new to the car/truck scene, (sorry if this is a dumb question but) where would I get some that fit?
  10. 262ci Forum (4.3)
    I'm wanting to replace the distributor in my 2001 4.3. How important is it that I line it up to TDC like everyone in the videos I've been watching has done? Wouldn't it be just fine if I put the new one in exactly how the old one came out? Any information is appreciated. Thanks!
  11. 262ci Forum (4.3)
    Hey guys. Well I have a 2000 s10 4.3 auto. I’ve replaced fuel pump, filter, tpms, ICV, new MAP, cleaned MAF, new plugs new wires. Virtually everything I can think of besides the spider injectiors. She’s got 190k on her and still strong. I just purchased it not long ago from someone who was...
  12. 60v6 Forum (2.8/3.4)
    I have a 1985 blazer 2wd with a 2.8 v6 in it. It lacks the power i want and im wondering which engine swap will give the best bang for my buck. Ive seen 3.4 swaps and 4.3 swaps, which is easier and more cost effective ?
  13. S10 / S15
    Hey, I bought my 2002 6 weeks ago, it needed a transfer case and it needs a wheel bearing. I was taking a corner the other day and it dropped the passenger side front torsion key because the crossmember is rotten. I’m looking for a new one. Places to order, look, or buy off you. i don’t care if...
  14. 262ci Forum (4.3)
    1994 Oldsmobile Bravada I've been looking around and I read that using a mini start is a nice upgrade and also allows for easier installation. I have no problem using the stock style mini starter, but I would kind of like to use either the Hitachi or the Denso style mini starters to save even...
  15. 262ci Forum (4.3)
    So my ‘03 Chevy Blazer 4.3 has a bad harmonic balancer wobble even after replacing it. Could this mean a bent crankshaft? How does such a thing even happen? Any advice would be appreciated. It only has 94k miles.
  16. 262ci Forum (4.3)
    So i've had P1336 for awhile ( Crankshaft variation not learned) even though the vehicle runs fine. gets up to speed, no hesitation. It won't go through via scanner, and i'm starting to go down the line of different solutions. 1. Maybe replacing the Crank shaft position sensor? I've heard you...
  17. ZR2 - BlaZeR2 - Highrider
    I've been noticing on my '96 ZR2 that there is noticeable "camber", or toe-out, sometimes when I look at it from the front while it's parked. Most of the time it's toed out, however, sometimes it's the opposite, it looks like it's toed in. The outer edge of my tires are starting to wear...
  18. Xtreme / ZQ8
    I'm new to this site so don't know if I'm doing this right but I have a 2000 S10 Xtreme with 4.3L. the other week I changed the fuel pump due to hard starting and low fuel pressure. The truck ran fine for about a week then last weekend it would turn over but would not start. Checked fuel...
  19. 262ci Forum (4.3)
    I have a built 4.3l pushing 300hp and I'm going to drop it in a 1984 Camaro. I am having trouble finding a set of engine mounts I can use. I saw transdapt makes mounts for swapping a 350 in an s10 and I wondered if I could flip them around to work the same for a 4.3l in place of a 350. It seems...
