I have a 1996 GmC sierra with the 350 in it. The past few months it has been almost impossible to start when you leave it sit for a week or more. When it does start it runs fine, and it will start with no problem. I have replaced fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter, and the fuel pump has about 40 thousand miles on it. Dont know what else to check for..please help Thanks

Check the distributor cap. If it is corroded, any condensation may make it not start.

I have a 1996 GMC Sierra what engine wiring harness is interchangeable with this truck

I believe a 96-98 harness from any chevy or gmc would work. V8 to V8 not V6 to V8 the 305 and 350 would be the same harness

I would say that you probably have some bad plug wires. Replace them and see if the problem goes away.

Can I replace my 700r4 in my 1992 GMC Sierra with 350 turbo tranny out a 1985 GMC Sierra?

I did, but I had to exchange the drive shaft b/c the length was wrong. the R4 has OD, and the 350 does not, making the 350 shorter. It's no a great idea. I was unhappy with the 3 speed 350 because of very poor gas mileage, so I went back to the r4. I had a bit of an issue with the speedo cable and the tranny crossmember mount too. It's not really worth it, but yes, you can do it, but it's going to take fab work, and after my own ordeal, I'd not really suggest it. I was just trying to save a few bucks, and got myself into a world of hurt. lol you live , you learn. Unfortunately Fixya did not exist back then.
