You can get the original GM dealer service manual from faxonautoliterature.com. It will have everything includung wiring diagrams in it. I've used them before and had excellent service.
If you are just looking for some help with your engine then Haynes has a Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330 that is excellent for the 6.2 diesel. It's about $20 and covers the 6.2 and the 6.5. It includes a lot of tips that aren't in the GM book, especially up grades to some systems.
Hope this helps.

1988 Chevy Tahoe Starter going out. Need to replace


Generally starters have 2 or 3 bolts and a thick wire coming from the battery and other miscellaneous connections.

You did not specify a vehicle that was on my list, i.e. 1988 Chevy Tahoe.

However, it may be similar to a Suburban R10:
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The following is a general procedure for all trucks covered in this manual, and may vary slightly depending on model and series.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect and tag all wires at the solenoid terminal. NOTE: Reinstall all nuts as soon as they are removed, since the thread sizes are different.
  4. Remove the front bracket from the starter and the mounting bolts. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter. Fig. 1: Starter mounting location — 4.8L engines 84903021.gif
    Fig. 2: Starter mounting location — 4.3L and 5.0L engines 84903022.gif
    Fig. 3: Starter mounts — 5.7L and 7.4L engines 84903023.gif

  5. Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter, front end first, then remove the unit from the truck. To install:
  6. Position the starter and tighten all bolts as follows: R/V Series:
    • Thru-bolts: 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm)
    • Bracket bolt: 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm)
    • Nut (gas): 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm)
    • Nut (diesel): 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm)
    C/K Series:
    • Thru-bolts: 35 ft. lbs. (45 Nm)
    • Bracket bolt (diesel): 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm)
    • Nut (diesel): 75 inch lbs. (8.5 Nm)
  7. Reconnect all wires. Fig. 4: Disconnect the negative battery cable 87982p25.jpg
    Fig. 5: Remove the starter retaining bolts 87982p30.jpg
    Fig. 6: Remove the starter from the vehicle 87982p31.jpg

1987 Chevy Suburban with 6.2L diesel shakes at certain speeds.


Sounds like you may have a loose motor mount. I would check these as well as any that support the transmission.

If this doesn't seem to be the issue, try replacing the fuel filter, glow plugs, and make sure all vacuum lines are connected and in good repair.

Pick up a book called Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part no. 10330, at your auto parts store. It deals with all the early diesel engines includung the 6.2. It has a good diagnosis section and how to repair. It also has tricks to prevent some problems from recurring. Hope this helps.

Where to find diagram for wiring harness for 85 chevy suburban?


You can check out your local auto parts store for a Haynes or Clymer repair manual. I know that AutoZone, O'Reilly's, and Advance Auto Parts all carry these manuals at a cost of $20-$25. They contain the wiring diagrams for the major electrical systems. Unfortunately that's probably going to be one of the few sources for a vehicle that old. I happen to own an 85 Chevy Silverado 1/2 ton. What type of problem are you experiencing? Perhaps I could assist you.

I have a 1988 chevy suburban 6.2 diesel starts then stalls after 40 seconds and some times it wii run for a day or a week w/o any problems has new glow plugs new map sensor any ideas


Have you changed the air and fuel filters lately? Try that first,making sure you follow the procedures in your owners manual for the fuel filters exactly as they tell you. I neglected to do that with my 1982 1/2 ton 6.2 and my son was left stranded in the Maine woods in the middle of the night. Also pick up Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual. It has proved to be a godsend for me because I haven't been able to find anyone here that knows anything about those motors in my area. It is Part # 10330 and can be gotten anywhere they sell car repair info or self help books. It has a good section on diagnostics as well as tips, hints and help for the diyer.It will cost about $20.
