1997 Chevy Cheyenne K 1500, 305 vortec exhaust backfire, runs rich,no power


If #4 is the only cylinder low on compression, chances are your engine has not jumped timing. A broken or burnt exhaust valve sounds like the most likely candidate here. Quick repair will save you many dollars as the backfiring can eventually cause problems with the exhaust manifold and can cause catalytic converter and O2 sensor damage. You will need to pull the head off the engine and have it serviced. Many will tell you that if you do one head you should do both. It is good advice, especially since burnt valves are usually caused by pushrods that are loose due to wear of the valve guides.

1989 Chevy S10 loses power and backfires


A large vacuum leak is likely the problem. Could be the intake gaskets. If you have power brakes, are they working ok? If not, suspect the booster diaphragm has failed. Is the pcv valve in place? Any vacuum hoses not connected?

Engine swap 5.0 vortec to 350 non computer controled


The computer runs the Transmission from the signals the throttle position sensor, crank shaft sensor, and cam shaft sensor. Your going to have to replace the transmission with an older transmission like the turbo 350 or turbo 400. When it's time to get the car e-tested, that's when your going to run in to problems, due to the year your Chevy is. If your Chevy was a 1985 then you could go with the carb system but with being the newer OBD11 system, your going to have an off road only vehicle with that swap. Why would you want to replace the engine with the 350 carb set up??? There are things you can do to tweak the one in your Chevy free of charge.

Installed new distributor in 97 Chevy Vortec V6


Check the wire harness to the Ignition control module (ICM) or replace it. It cost around $40,00 from Auto Zone and it's common for the ICM to fail, or it may just be starting to fail and it's also know that the OEM distributor had a screen vent at the bottom of the distributor for ventilation to prevent condensation from forming in the distributor. Check to make sure your new distributor has a vent and that it's not plugged up with shipping plastic. Condensation may be forming causing the misfire in the distributor. Good luck and keep me posted.

Hard to start chevy 350 vortec


You will need to do a fuel pump pressure leak-down test, the pump must not loose more than 5 PSI overnight, u will need a cheap fuel pressure test guage, the test port is on the fuel supply rail to the injectors on the intake manifold, it looks like a tire valve but metal with a plastic cap on it, u may be able to borrow this guage from Kragen, Autozone or a parts store like them, if not they are very cheap, less than $20 US. Run the engine with the test guage hooked up, turn off the engine and then check it in an hour or so, if it drops more than 5 PSI then u will need to replace the fuel pump in the gas tank. One note make sure the connection for the guage is tight with no leakage or the test is invalid
