Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 5.3L I'm thinking about installing a cold air intake but I wanna know what the ups and downs are on having 1 and I'm also thinking about installing an electric fan and doing away with the mechanical fan I'm looking for fuel Mileage not performance
Installing a cold air intake kit like a K&N or Airaid will actually do both, give you a horsepower gain and better fuel mileage. you will notice better throttle response and you will not need to give it as much throttle to go the same speed as before and therefore you should see an increase in gas mileage(if you dont go hotrodding around!).

SOURCE: I want better gas mileage.
It's True. On my diesel it makes about a 3 miles/gal. difference. It probably wouldn't be as much on a gas. Maybe about 1 or two mpg if you take it easy, but you will love the power increase (up to 30hp+), which will make it hard to take it easy. It will also give you firmer shifts. You can get programmers/chips on EBAY or possibly at a local performance shop. The programmers just plug under the dash and once the desired program is installed then you can unplug til you wanna change it. They cost anywhere from 300 to 800 bucks depending on the brand or features. I would recommend Superchips, Bully Dog or Edge. Hope this helps.

check the connector to the fuel pump for corrosion or loose pins, the fuel pumps of newer cars and trucks are designed to last at least 100,000 miles, when the new pumps quit did u verify they had power to them?

try autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you

Multiple misfires and timing over retarded can be a result of the MAF dirty or failing. I would suggest carefully cleaning it with a good carb cleaner (Berrymans Chemtool), erasing codes, then take for a drive. If that doesn't do it, get a new one.
It's a "throw parts at it" technique, but a new MAF is much cheaper than a timing chain, and timing chains are not as problematic as MAF's. Plus, the computer tries to compensate for a failing MAF by changing timing. And a MAF will cause engine misfires because it is not measuring the air flow correctly.
