Interchangeable car parts


You didn't really specify which parts, but many parts are interchangeable between the 1991-1996 B-body cars (and D-body, the Cadillac Fleetwood). The B-body cars were the Caprice and Roadmaster (Sedan and Wagons), Olds Custom Cruiser (only produced until 1992) and the Impala SS (1994-1996). They all share the same frame (D-body is slightly stretched) and most of the suspension parts are the same, or at least interchangeable. The interiors are different, but most things like seats and door panels would be interchangeable. The B-bodies started out with Chevy 5.0 Liter and 5.7 Liter TBI engines, later the L99 (4.3 Liter) and LT1 (5.7 Liter).

1996 oldsmobile 88 will start but dies out and when trying to start again it will not start only crank an hour later it will start fine and die out after half hour and will not start again


This sounds very much like a faulty crankshaft sensor as these are typical symptoms of an intermittent sensor fault that fails when the engine gets hot causing the engine to stall - but works again when the engine cools down.

You may or may not also have an engine check light showing before the engine stalls.

You can have the car scanned for error codes - Autozone will do this for free but if your car is not OBD II compliant they may or may not have the earlier OBD I reader.

You can check the crank sensor using an oscilloscope but this is a bit involved and you will need to have the equipment and knowhow. To be honest I would just change the sensor out as it is not that expensive and is the prime suspect in my view from what you describe.

Hope this helps. Please do take a minute to leave a vote for the solution.

1996 Pontiac Trans Am 5.7 L LT1, The motor temperature gauge goes to zero, intermittently Is there 2 sensor, one for the radiator fan and one for the dash gauge, or is it the same sensor?


This usually happens when the gauge on the dash goes bad. It can be the sensor for the water temperature too mounted on the engine. The sensor for the fans will have nothing to do with the gauge

Trying to wire a 1994 lt1 into 1996 chevy s-10


It should be a plug and play if your using the ECM for the 1994 engine. The ECM on the 1996 S10 will no work on the LT1 engine, for one thing the S10 ECM will only command for 6 fuel injectors and will have different injection pulse and so on. The program of the S10 ECM is made for the Vortec as to the LT1 will have different parameter **** as engine running temperature, vacuum readings, and timing.
The most obvious would be the 1994 LT1 runs on a OBDI system and the 1996 is running on a OBDII system. You can still run the 1994 LT1 from a 1994 with a OBDii system ecm, but some of the sensors will need to be upgraded to accommodate for the proper readings the OBDII system will need to have the engine to run right.
If you don't have the right ECM for the LT1, go to the wrecker's and locate one, Caprice, Camero, Firebird ECT.....
Thank you for using fixya and good luck on your project.

Car will run and then some time later stalls, then starts rught up and then a little bit later stalls, did this 5 times today and finally wouldn't start when the engine got hot (actually just hotter) seems...


You have a lot to check. Start by scanning the engine codes. There's good chance it will tell you where to look next.
The symptoms sound like fuel delivery (assuming the engine runs well when it runs). Put a fuel pressure gage on the car and verify that you are getting a constant and good pressure. Could be fuel pump, blocked lines, bad fuel regulator, or an intermittent electrical problem. I had a situation like this where the car would run fine and then just cutout or not start. Turned out to be a loose connection to the fuel pump. Easy fix. Very hard to find.

ENGINE STALLS WHEN I STEP ON GAS PEDAL


Sounds like your fuel pump is going bad! The more you press on the pedal the more demand is on the pump and it cant keep up cuz its junk. Try to limp it to a shop to replace it, unless u wanna do that yourself.....
