2006 chevy 2500 express cargo van .What is a good oil pressure for this van. it has 150,000 miles runs great


60psi cold / 30-45psi warm is ideal. I've seen (with that mileage) 45 cold/ 20 warm and that's acceptable - anything less start thinking about a new oil pump.

1989 Chevy K2500 350 will not restart after warmed up? I have replaced Heads, reset timing 0 TDC new plugs, coil, cap, button, module and pick up coil. Engine starts cold runs great but will not restart...


tdc is usually set at 8 degrees BTDC for an automatic and 4 BTDC for a manual transmission. This may help. Does the engine run rough at start up being set at 0TDC?

1996 chevy g10 van with 5.7. when cold seems to start right up but after warmed up very hard starting and when it does start it idles real low and rough than starts ilding high and smooth but has black gas...


Any check engine light? When you start out cold the computer plugs in numbers for the sensors until the engine warms up then it relys on the sensors which sound like are going bad. I would suspect an oxygen sensor first since this will cause the lean then rich situation you describe. auto parts stores have scanners they will hook up free and this would show if the voltages coming from the 02 sensor are off. Also the scanner will show cross counts which is the voltage moving up and down in response to rich and lean air mixture detected in the exhaust. If this is helpful please reply and good luck

My 88 chevy 2500 3/4 ton runs, but when given gas


check your fuel filter under the left side of the vehicle on the frame. if this proves to good, your next step might be checking your catalytic convertor. have you checked all of your vacuum lines? one thing you can do is have your friend inside to start the vehicle and while it is idling and the air cleaner is off, look inside at the fuel injector and you throttle it and see if the injector is spraying fuel.
