You can only go 1-2 years on either side of the year. So you can go with a 95-99 I believe.

I have a 96 chevy 2500 5.7 vortec with bad poppet valves, can i change to a throttle body intake from a 95. both are pre obd 2

You can't change the intakes on it. The 1995 throttle body and the efi that they used on the 96 up are totally differant. In 1996 when they went to the vortec motors they changed the heads. the 96 up only have 8 bolts to bolt the intake to the motor and are totally differant angles on the bolt holes. the 87-95 centerbolt head motors had 12 bolts to hold the intake down. Also the 96 should be odb 2 by government compliance. 95 was a split year but 96 up should be odb 2. If you do a search online you should be able to find the new injector or alot of time you can just get the poppets.Either way in the long run you will be better off fixing what is the rather than trying to convert.

1st thing to do is dump a can of motor flush in the crank case. follow directions on can. replace with full synthethic motor oil. Valvoline reccomended. 5w30. change fuel filter, sparkplugs and wires, valve cover gasket (probaly dry rotted.) replace pvc valve. should be good to go after that. cost estimate $ 60 hope this helps.

Head gaskets

There is really no difference between a blown or cracked head gasket. In either case the gasket would have to be replaced. Generally the term "cracked" is used when referring specifically to the cylinder head/s its/them selves. If the cylinder head is cracked it is a much more expensive repair.

i think it might also be a head, you could be leaking coolant which would make it hot and over work the alternator. i changed the head on my cavalier and my head gasket. after that, my problem was fixed

Replace termostat in a 1998 chevy cavalier still run hot

Yes it does have a electric fan, mine went out on my 2003 and I just changed the electric motor itself. Autozone offered the entire fan with motor or they offered just the motor. I chose to replace the motor only because I knew the fan blades and housing was fine. I had to drop the fan down and take out the entire assembly from the bottom but overall the process was a 3 out of 10 on the difficulty.

Low compression in 2 cylinders

Not the difference shoulD NOT be more than 10psi and some may say 20 psi. I SAY 10psi between each cylinder if this is 50 psi difference then you have at least a head gasket problem. But when you remove head have it check by a machine shop for cracks and warpage in head. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA.
