You don’t need to remove the dash or remove AC refrigerant from 2005 Chevy Uplander. Its a simple job takes about an hour with 10 mm socket and Phillips screwdriver. Core is in the center of dash near the floor. Remove lower panels on center of dash where passanger
Left leg and driver right leg would be. Also the front lower panel where cigarette lighter is. They pop out. Also remove fiber cover from under glove box and driver area. Remove large black plastic member behind where the lower center panels were. Two black screws in front and seveal screws in either side. Pull to rear to slide out. Remove metal bracket on floor with 4-10mm. Remove vent from floor pops out. Look up underneath from area you created under center of dash. Many vertical gold colored screws. Remove first cover panel 4 screws. Remove second panel mores screws. Theres one clear against firewall by driver side also. After this heater core is accessible held in with only one screw by firewall remove it and core drops out easily after wiggle out pipe ends from firewall holes. This is about 20 minutes to this point

Before remove heater core, drain coolant, remove front engine yoke bolts, ratchet strap engine pull forward and block. Pop out windshield wiper link and brake booster vacuum hose so can reach hose connections from engine side. Remove hose clamps and disconnect hoses to core. One hose is 3/4 id and the other is 5/8” that necks out to 3/4” on other end.

The hardest part about the whole job was getting the hoses off then in with these spiring clamps and finding the right replacement hose and connectors. Not the removal of the core which is surprisingly easy.

Have you already pulled the taillights and inspected the wiring, bulbs, sockets and connections? You may want to start at the Tail Light Combination Block. It is located underneath the bed, next to the spare tire. The connections can become corroded and the unit can fail. If the module is damaged Dorman has an after marker replacement # 923-012. Any questions feel free to write back. Good Luck.

It's inside of the front cover of the engine (where the alternator and A/C belts are situated) On top of the engine is a valve cover and one end of it has a raised, domed part where the timing chain sprockets for the exhaust and intake cams are located. I found a youtube video on accessing the timing chain you can use as a reference -

Could be a number of things. Have you changed plugs and wires lately? Changed the fuel filter? I would start with the fuel filter.

A crankcase ventilation system is used to consume crankcase vapors in the combustion process instead of venting them to atmosphere. Fresh air from the intake system is supplied to the crankcase, mixed with blow by gases and then passed through a calibrated orifice into the intake manifold.

The primary control is through the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) orifice which meters the flow at a rate depending on inlet vacuum. The PCV orifice is an integral part of the camshaft cover. If abnormal operating conditions occur, the system is designed to allow excessive amounts of blow by gases to back flow through the crankcase vent into the intake system to be consumed by normal combustion.

No PCV valve .

Unless I'm remembering something wrong this is a very easy repair. The chrome trim that surrounds the two headlights and supports the marker lamp. This chrome trim is held on by four small but long, recessed torx screws. I think a T15 is used but please verify that. Look between the tram and the headlights. In the four inner corners they can be found. They don't stick out but they are there. Good Luck.

Doesn't appear to be. But if you are crazy patient you could tuck a metal rod with a 90 degree bend in it like a crank handle and theoretically tuck it in behind one of the seat halves to try and catch the release strap, then twist it forward. Might need another bend in what will be your handle end so you can apply enough twisting force to it. A second pair of eyes will be helpful so you will know if the rod has hooked up and how far you need to go. A number of Monte forums have run into this wall without a solution so good luck with cracking it.

Checklist for you to look at:

Fan fuses
Heater fuses
Fan Relay
Fan wires (it is possible a short caused the old fan to fail)

Kind regards
