IF THE COMPRESSOR DRIVE BELT TURNS WITH IT UPLUGGED YOU WILL NOT DO ANY DAMAGE. IT SIMPLY WILL WORK AS IF THE A/C IS NOT TURNED ON. IF BY UNPLUGGED YOU MEAN THE LINES ARE OFF THEN MOISTURE AND DIRT WILL ENTER THE SYSTEM

I have a vortec out of my 1995 chevy silverado will it work in a 1998 blazer with a vortec? I believe they are both 4.3L but i could be wrong...and the blazer is 4x4 will that affect the swap


If there both 4.3's the interchange says the will fit but I have found that you need to look everything over well. I have found that some have knock sensors with different sizes (2 wire and 1 wire) and the oil pan and pump sometimes have to be swapped going from 2wd to a 4wd. Sit them side by side and check everything is my best advice.

How do I remove and re install the CPI unit and gaskets on a 1998 Chevy Blazer with Vortec V6


You have to reove the upper plenum. that is the part on top of the intake that looks like a dome on top of the lower intake.There is 8 10mm bolts around the outside of the dome part. the disconnect the fuel lines at back of lower intake and remove the cpi unit.

sounds a little like timing chain jumped with all the hi voltage on emissions sensors. also check computer for faulty output voltage which could cause all the high voltage readings. Computer is set at 5.1vdc, any other like 6 volts or higher replace computer.

I have a 1998 chevy shortbed with a v8 vortec engine, i have water in the oil so im guessing a blown head gasket? i bought the gasket set should that be all i need?


Look the cylinder heads over very closely. GM had an issue with certain heads and the extended service anti-freeze they used. These heads would crack.
You want to look for discoloration in and around combustion chamber.
They also had an issue with gaskets and the anti-freeze.
Good luck

Truck runs for two seconds an shut down i changed fuel pump an filter and it still shuts down but it only stay running when i put gas down in the throttle body i had a 1996 chevy 1500 i was wondering can...


No, the fuel regulator from a 96 will not fit a 98. The 98 is a vortec and i believe the 96 is TBI. You are on the right track though, but the fuel regulator is attached to the fuel injector spider and is one unit inside the upper intake. It is relative easy to replace just takes some time.

I need the torque specs and sequence on a 1998 chevy 350 vortec


Vortecs are a little different that old school small blocks, grab a Haynes or Chiltons, the cross patterns and specs are simply diagramed. Vortec, as any really, start with 25# then 45# and then final torque which I believe is around 70-75# but to be sure verify with the manual. AutoZones, Murry's, Adavance auto all carry the books, Cheap insurance.
