The brakes arent touchy enough you have to push the brakes down two inches before there is any friction applied to the tire what can I do?

I have a 96 chevy 2500 5.7 vortec with bad poppet valves, can i change to a throttle body intake from a 95. both are pre obd 2


You can't change the intakes on it. The 1995 throttle body and the efi that they used on the 96 up are totally differant. In 1996 when they went to the vortec motors they changed the heads. the 96 up only have 8 bolts to bolt the intake to the motor and are totally differant angles on the bolt holes. the 87-95 centerbolt head motors had 12 bolts to hold the intake down. Also the 96 should be odb 2 by government compliance. 95 was a split year but 96 up should be odb 2. If you do a search online you should be able to find the new injector or alot of time you can just get the poppets.Either way in the long run you will be better off fixing what is the rather than trying to convert.

It could be a faulty fuel injector, try running a fuel injector cleaner through your fuel system. At worst the poppet nozzle has gone bad and will need to be replaced, you can buy the poppet nozzle it self individually at Auto Zone or buy upgrade MFI system which is much better and less pron to fuel leaking room a cracked poppet line or nozzle which will cause what you have described.

Water in oil


Hello, it seems that you have intake gaskets leaking. I'll bet you have the vortec 350. This is a common problem with the vortec, Gm uses plastic intake gaskets and they blow out over time usually to the externally but yours is internally.It is a pretty easy fix for the average mechanic to do. Thank you

Water in the oil? 96 Chevy Silverado 350 vortec?


Hello, it seems that you have a blown intake gasket. These are made of plastic and over time they crack they usually leak externally instead of internally. Thank you
