Engine replacement 1996 Chevy Blazer

    Thank You because I had a mechanic tell me that he had to remove the body to get to the engine and he was going to charge me 1500 just for labor.

    Really if you can take the time and learn the right things it will only take 12.4 hours. I have done it for a 1996 blazer. 4.3 V-6 you need only to undo the main bolts and remove the grill and the radiator and air cool.

Actually I pulled an engine out of a '86 S-10 4x4 and the book said you need to remove the front and cab bolts and raise the body up a few inches to get enough clearance. Punched a hole through the firewall to get one of the engine to bellhousing bolts out and didn't need to undo the body. There was about 1-2 inches clearance between the bolt head and the firewall before removing and the bolt is about 5 inches long so there isn't anyway of taking it out unless you want to pull the whole thing with the transmission attached and you would either have to have pulled the trans case off somehow or pulled it too.

Can I replace my 1996 Chevy Blazer's Engine with a 2005 Chevy Blazer Engine? They are both 4.3L Vortec Engines.


you can,,BUT you're gonna have to replace the intake and a whole lot of stuff on the motor you're installing, most things will interchange from old motor BUT not all. you will have to buy all the other stuff, either new or used,,,but it is possible!

Know if my 95 chevy blazer has a spider CPI?


A spider injector is located underneath the intake plenum and this is multi-port. Otherwise you have a throttle body injector system. Vortec engines have spider injectors and they are super expensive to replace ($400.00- 850.00) each ! There is only one spider injector for each engine it has 6 legs/fuel tubes that go to each cylinder.

89-98 chevy blazer


It's not worth doing all that conversion, buy the time you spend the time and money to convert the 89 4.3 to work on the 98 blazer, it would be cheaper to install a 98 vortec rebuild. The 89 4.3 have a TBI fuel injection system and the ecm on the 98 will not work and the bad news is that the ecm on the 98 also controls the transmission shift points and the 89 will not, so even if you swap the ecm to have the 89 4.3 engine work. the transmission will not shift. Sorry for the bad news but it would be cheaper to replace the 98 engine with the years of 1996 to 2001. Good luck and hope this helps.

1999 chevy blazer wont start


THE FUEL PUMP IS BAD.

if your losing fuel pressure after the pump runs the drain back valve in the pump has failed.

and i doubt that you are seeing enough fuel pressure to run a vortec engine.

low fuel pressure equals a non running vortec

Apr 11, 2009 | 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Fule pump


I bet you frequently run the truck very low on fuel if so you killed the fuel pump when you replace this pump its a good idea to use only a genuine AC DELCO FACTORY pump because the vortec engine needs a MININUM of 60 PSI fuel pressure to start
