Are you going for extra horse or just to have a bigger block. you can do a lot with a small block to give power. change that cam and intake and add a nice 4barrel and some headers and a thrush exhaust and if money is not a problem some new heads . power is in the heds. you can go on line and find vedeos that will show you how to port and polish your heads and you get bigger valves both intake and exhaust been there don this and you can make a bad *** motor

The 84 Silverado came with 305,350, and 454 engines. Look on the side of the block by the oil filter and get the casting number. Call your local Chev. dealer and they can tell you.

I have a 2002 toyota tacoma 2wd with the TRD package and an automatic trans. about 2 weeks ago or so when putting my truck into reverse or drive it kinda bumps hard. and for a little bit it will shift hard...

Those metal flakes are normal wear and tear within the trans. You may try having it flushed (this may/may not work), The transmission may need a rebuild if you have serviced it already and is experiencing the same issues...hopefully this helps

1998 Ford EB Explorer, 4.0L 5AT. Transmission stopped while driving. No clunk or grinding, etc. No Reverse or Drive. Will move slightly when revved. TC? Valve Body?

Forward clutch went out inside the trans, When you rev the engine, the fluid pressure rises and tries to apply the forward clutch assy. I rebuild these 5R55 trans for this concern a lot. Total rebuild kits with seals,fibers, steels, bands, servo's cost about 275.00 dollars plus the cost of the torque converter. Labor is about 1200 buck. Who ever does this repair for you, ask them for a 3yr/50k warranty. That means the shop really stands behind there rebuilds, as that is the trans warranty I give to my clients.

2000 Toyota Camry LE - engined blown - should I fix?

On your coment.
I'm a mechanic...
To decide for a USED engine Or REBUILT engine.
The Difference 1- is the Price
On used How many miles have the USED engine
How was the maintenance on the Engine. ( Never know)
The warranty Used only 30 days.
But is the Cheap option. depend of your money.

JASPER is ONE of the BETTER ENGINE and TRANS. Rebuilder company.
They have 2 warrantys, One 36,000 miles,
The other ONE is 72,000, wrote on papers.
They give to you A complete warranty.
If the ENGINE fail During the Warranty time. they will give to you an other engine, and pay for the Labor to Remove and Install the Second Engine.
If you do with JASPER ASK to the Installer for the Warranty papers if he buyit.

OK. O hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya ...

Auto box issue

I have an applicator chart that says 1992-1996 Diamante only had 3.0 ltr engine available,and the chart also says that the 3.5ltr was only available from 1997-2004.So either my chart is wrong,or you have a LATE 1996 that is actually a 1997.Either way,my chart says the 3.0 ltr engines used an F4A33-1 auto trans and the 3.5ltr's used an F4A51 trans.You ust recheck your vehicle to verify all the specifications.I would rebuild the trans that's in there,but i am a transmission rebuilder.Getting a used trans is kind of iffy,as you may be getting junk or a high mileage trans.As far as interchange,contacting a junkyard is the best way to go as they have interchange manuals.I would try and stay with the same year model and same vehicle.My chart says that the F4A51 also came in 96-05 Eclipse's...will it work in your Diamante?I don't know.I do know that an 05 trans won't work in your 96 model. Best way to go is rebuild your trans,or get one from a remanufacturer like Jasper Engines and Transmissions.
