Using the 4.9L (300 cu in) straight six is not an easy thing, this engine is actually longer than your old one. Try looking on for a replacement engine, this would be alot easier. Hope this helps.

1994 chevy k2500 aligned,new tires, new shocks and it still wanders when driven sraight

The most likely cause is a worn ball and socket (not the 'ball joint' on the suspension) on the Pitman arm for the steering linkage. The steering idler arm's ball and socket may also be worn. The parts are cheap, but it is a PITA to remove the Pitman arm. This can be checked by seeing how much steering wheel play you have before the wheels do anything. Looking at the Pitman arm while doing this may scare you. I drove with a bad one for ~1 year, and was always scared the ball was going to pop out of the socket and result in no steering.

How do i fix my 2001 cadillac catera idle problem. ive tried fuel injector cleaner, changed the spark plugs, and o2 sensors, but it still idles rough and im throwing these codes. bad o2 sensor bank 1...

The problems you are describing indicate to me that you likely need to replace the coil pack that runs from the spark plugs ,and the plug wires end up at it.It also may be the spark plug wires,get a water bottle and spray the wires after dark and if you get a light show from them then replace them,if not,replace the coil pack.

Engine oil and tyre pressures

use 10W30W, that is the heaviest oil this engine needs, thicker oils can damage the bearings due to oil starvation, as far as tire pressure goes 30- 32 PSI is best for this little car.

Have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee zg model

The Jeep has steering idlers (short 7" arms) that eliminate wandering. Sounds like they are worn but FIRSTLY check that you have 4 identical tyre pressures as just one tyre front or back being low will give you the wandering sensation in a 4x4

Car engine oil-leak problem. I'm just wandering. Is there any fluid that can be put in the engine to seal the leak?

There are no leak stoppers that are worth putting in your engine. They do make some, but they are a waste of your money, and they will reak havoc on your engine.

It is much more worth while to get the leak fixed, at least if you value your transportation...

I need to do my piston rings do i have to pull out motor from the car its on a sraight six ..

It would be easier for the simple fact of your back, and your ability to move. It's easier with it on the ground or on an engine stand.
