I usually do most mechanical myself, but went to a reputable muffler shop. That has been a issue with those for a while. The computer is also located there …. Typically, low oil pressure means that the engine main and rod bearings are worn. You still need to replace the spark plugs and ignition wires. Before I replaced the motor had a engine miss with p0300 code.
Also because the problem followed from the old engine. The fuel pressure specification for the 1998 Chevrolet Silverado truck is from 55 to 61 lbs. If so then a hairline crack can develop in the oil cooler inside your radiator and leak water into your oil via the cooler lines at the oil filter. They should be properly gapped before packaging. I assume this is from computer not being able to get proper readings and adjust the fuel mixture. Approximate, fill to level of fill plug.
The ignition wires are the most likely suspect with starting problems on damp days. I can tell you this with certainty, The truck can tow about as much as A truck with A V-8, It cannot go as fast with the load behind it, but It has… You can hook a vacuum gauge to a direct vacuum source on the intake manifold. I just replaced one on a 1991 Corsica 3. There's several vacuum ports on the intake. Fluid capacity depends on the transmission on your vehicle, it should be stamped on the transmission pan. I suspect some option allowed one of these engines in this truck.
Do yourself a favor and use some anti-seize on the plugs when you replace them. The 1998 Chevy 1500 with a 5. When the bearings wear, the oil pump is no longer able to generate enough oil volume to keep the pressure up. Are there any after market convertors that work for my vehicle in your experiences? Convertor, engine coolant temp sensor. If im driving 65 on a flat road in overdrive and just barely have accelerator pressed to maintain speed is when I notice it. If the fuel pressure is too high, the most likely cause is a bad fuel regulator or a clogged fuel return line. That usually requires that you lift the engine off the motor mounts a few inches.
Unless you have a special gapping tool for platinums, regular blade or disc type gappers can damage the platinum tips. It is called a prom. The plugs are platinum tipped and designed to last 100,000 miles. You have a coil pack. That would depend on the car it is in, because of the size of the oil pan.
Recommended that I change catalytic convertors also with this many miles, said I would need to do it very soon. Check fluid level and add fluid as needed. If you register with autozone there is a repair guide for your truck. After refill check oil level. Its so common for those to warped you must always check them for warpage upper and lower. As long as the fuel pressure is within the normal range, the fuel system is likely operating normally.
He also said they will do this for no charge to try and earn his business. Muffler shop has also replaced both convertors twice with Magnaflow probalbly the same part number. The 1998 Silverado was available with three engines: a 4. Engine rod and main bearings do not eve … r touch the crankshaft; they ride on a film of pressurized oil. Did you replace the ignition wires? Standard features include tinted glass, and power steering.
And engines are loaded with sensors and controls that never existed in earlier cars. The Silverado's fuel system is a complicated network of parts. However, since your question was about horsepower, not which block you have, I will tell you the horsepower. After engine was replaced still had code so put new wire, cap and rotor, miss and code went away. Just because you couldnt find a leak by spraying doesnt mean there isnt a leak and the manifold isnt warped.
Hook the fuel pressure gauge to the test port on the engine's fuel rail, located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Remove the inside of the glove box and look in and down to the right and you will… It is located on the firewall side of the engine. Just above the oil pan. Just replacing the convertors like we have already done. I have a 1998 k1500 with a reman. I don't know the numbers for the towing capacity, But I have owned three of these trucks with the 4. Just going by feel, and what it felt like before I changed the plugs rotor cap and wires.
