When I did mine, I had to remove radiator, undo exhaust manifolds from motor, and of course, remove hood. Those 3 things should allow enough room to remove that motor. Of course you'll have a few extras to remove, air cleaner box, air duct, etc, maybe undo steering wheel shaft even. It's been a couple of years since i've did it, but I belive I did have to remove the steering shaft.

Can i put a 1999 chevy blazer motor and transmission in my 1995 chevy blazer?

Yes, it's involved though. You would have to use the PCM (or ECM), and wiring harness's for both the engine and transmission. You would have to get wiring diagrams for both vehicles ( $29 year). Then you would have to look over each wiring diagram and interface the newer wiring diagram to the older vehicle. Not impossible but requires a knowledgeable mechanic.

Probably easier and cheaper to get a reman short block and overhaul or replace your 1995 transmission.

The heater stopped working on my 97 blazer

When mine stopped I just had to replace the blower motor and then it was good to go. It's on the passenger side in the back of the engine compartment and is accessed from the top (basically it's located behind the glove box area). I originally went to a junk yard to get one. That lasted exactly a year. I went to Pep Boys and spent maybe $10 more for a new one and that one's been great. Hope that helps.

Do you know where i can find a 'vacuum diagram' for a turbo 350 transmission (1980 chevy blazer...stalls when you put it in gear)

There is usually only one vacuum connection on a turbo 350. It connects to the modulator valve on the side of the transmission. This valve uses engine vacuum to determine transmission shift points. The other end usually connects to a direct engine vacuum source. A "direct source" is a hose connection on the throttle body that has a vacuum signal available at idle. If it doesn't, then it's considered a "ported source".I have had some experience with the chevy blazer/gmc jimmy series, both the early large body models and the small body versions. The stalling when put into gear complaint is most likely caused by a bad intake gasket which is common on the older versions with the small block V8 motors. The newer versions with the vortek motors also had allot of trouble with throttle body gaskets. If these problems have not already been addressed, then there's a good chance that it will take care of the problem. Other possible sources of vacuum leaks are the pcv hose that is hard and brittle. Check the hose out carefully, especially the side that normally faces the engine. Check the throttle body bolts (carburetor bolts) for tightness. I hope that this information is helpful to you. Thank you for using

My engines dead and i need to put a new one in, i have a 98 chevy cavalier 2.4 twin cam engine currently in it (dead)

are you sure the engines gone? have you had at least 2 certified mechanics tell you that you need a new motor? in todays age, some people do lie for money.sad but true. try calling a local mobile mechanic and have them come out and diagnose it {the motor} bad. unless you're mechanically qualified to diagnose it yourself. then, try a pull a part junk yard for used motor or a local part yard for used motor. if you do prefer a new motor,you can order a new motor from dealer,auto-zone,advance auto parts. the new motor price,i do not know. the used pull a part motor,i do. the motor cost is with warranty,is $210.00 in tn. in ga. thats you pull the motor yourself. the motor from a part yard that pulls it for you can be anywhere from $500.00 to $950.00 depending on how many miles are on the engine that's being removed. 1st myself, i would need to know for sure that my motor is really bad.just like a dr. before doing surgery,you need 2nd opinion. sorry,just the way i am. if you're mechanically inclined and can make the correct diagnosis,you can find a good used motor. if not and you're trusting someone else for parts,labor,i suggest you consider the cost of replacement,the cost of the labor,versus the cost of the entire vehicle replacement into another car. that's only being honest. good luck and thank you for choosing!

My 02 blazer will not pull any codes up

Need to check the fuses in the fuse panel. Make sure your fuse to the ECM or any other functions are in working order and there is no damage to the ECM docking post. You can try resetting the ECM by turning the ignition key to the on position and "enhine not running" and pull the fuse to the ECM ut for 30 seconds and place it back in. Once the fuse is placed back in you should hear the fuel pump working energizing the fuel line and start the engine. the engine may stall, but let it. Just restart the engine, the ECM is just relearning the engine and drive train. So go for a test drive and all DTC codes will have been erased, so any new check engine light will be new issues that needs to be addressed. good luck

yes but if you have emmisons in your area the engine must meet or exceed the year of the truck you put it in, so if it does not meet emmisons for the year your putting it on it would be illegal.
