I doubt you will red line that motor if you have an automatic. with a stick shift you can blow it to pieces in 1st and 2nd. But,, sad to say, An automatic kind of protects itself and the engine by shifting at a decent RPM

No power full throttle u only rev to 2 grand that it can u help me

The cars computer has a rev limiter built in so a no load rev is about 2 grand. but driving the car it should reach 4800 rpms or 5600 rpms if not then install a vacuum gauge on a intake manifold port normal readings should be 16 inches or more at idle then drive car as you accelerate to a higher speed this should drop slightly once at full throttle is will read almost zero if below that then the exhaust has a restriction.

Top up radiator

Darcy, there isn't a typical radiator cap like on other cars. You'll have to fill it into the overflow reservoir.
Fill it to the MAX line. If you are doing this after a full flush, make sure you bleed the air out: After filling the reservoir tank, start the engine, drive for a few miles(make sure you get pretty high RPMs a couple times). After the engine cools, check the coolant level again, fill it back to MAX.

Vaccum hose diagram for 88 chevy truck. I put a 350 motor in my 88 chevy 1500 truck from a 95 suburban. I cant get the throttle body to stop idaling to high. I may need a vaccum line diagram for this motor...

it may not be a vacumn leak from a line,check the throttle shaft for movement,for example,i had a 89 1 ton 350 and my throttle shaft was moving around a lot and in order to keep it from idling high,i had to kick the throttle pedal.But also check the idle air control valve,which is the round sensor on the side of the throttle body.

Mountaineer shuts off

it might be a blockage in your fuel lines, this will sometimes make your car go into failsafe, because it knows there is gas in the car but a limited amount reaches the carbarettor, this is also why it will sometimes stop while trying to "rapidly" accelarate ( from a red light )
