I just replaced the motor in my 2005 GMC Canyon 3.5 and when I start it up it revs all the way up then stalls. I changed the throttle body,fuel regulator and it still does it.

may need computer flashed if using original-to sync with new engine----idle air motor may need ajust or throttle position sensor--a repair manual is worth viewing

Do i have to flash the computer if i change the motor in a 98 s10 blazer 4.3

Not because you change the engine, as much as leaving the battery disconnected for several hours. The computer could loose its memory and need to be re-learned.

How do I reset the computer after changing the oil myself ? The change oil light comes on for about 30 seconds before going out. The motor is a 4.9L. Thank you...

Depress and hold RANGE and FUEL USED buttons until OIL LIFE INDEX appears on DIC display. Depress and hold RANGE and RESET buttons for 5-60 seconds. When OIL CHANGE SOON light flashes 4 times remaining oil life index is reset to 100 percent. If OIL CHANGE SOON comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, display did not reset, and you will have to try again.
