    Testing the I6 oil pressure without the J-42907?

    When I wanted an accurate reading I(like most people) initially bought a new sender. I took the old one and ripped all the plastic off and got it to bare metal. I then tapped it so a hose for a grease gun would fit and attached a gauge to the other end of the hose. Why not use the already...

    NEED HELP Engine swap problems

    Did you swap over fuel rail and injectors? How old is the fuel in both the donor and the 07? Maybe old fuel wouldn't light and just got the plugs wet.

    Envoy engine removal

    When I did mine I did not take the nuts off and I left the cv's. Just swing everything out and yes leave the diff. on.

    NEED HELP Engine removal

    As I recall I used a combination of extensions and wobbles (both 3/8 and 1/2). I got the socket on up top and held it while a friend did the turning underneath. You need to know where it is so use a mirror to locate it. It's been over 2 years but as I recall I fished the socket in with mechanics...

    Most common is moisture in the distributor cap. Try drying it out or replace the cap. Use an ac delco cap.

    So is my engine toast?

    Check what the codes are, but it sounds like an O2 sensor to me.

    NEED HELP 2002 chevy trailblazer 4.2 weird problem

    Most common reason for a random misfire would be a plug or coil. #4 cylinder is the one that gets wet from cowl overflow. You need codes to properly diagnose, but I would pop off #4 coil and look for water. Given no history, I would put plugs in it.

    I have chased a lot of threads and have not seen a conclusive answer. I want to install used tires (great shape) 245/70/r17 on my 2002 LTZ Trailblazer. Sticker says 245/65/r17.I know they will fit and the speedo will be off. The sites I have visited say anything over 3 % increase in diameter is...

    a/c lines stayed connected to the compressor and the compressor came out with the engine when I did it.

    Engine Removal Tips (4.2 i6)

    I replaced the engine in my 02 about a year and a half ago. To get the engine out you remove the radiator and a/c condenser so yes, the a/c has to be drained. I left the head, oil pan on the engine. I think I left the line to the compressor connected. Take lots of digital pictures with your...
