  1. Well here it is. Bought my lil man this truck so we can work on it while he grows up. 79 short box stepside 2wd. Ive got 12 yrs to get it done lol. My 1st step is to get it running. The motor and trans that are in it are coming out. I want to replace it with a newer 5.3 say early 2000's and an auto transmission. So my question is. Does anyone on here know exactly what I need to drop that motor and trans into it? As far as a motor mount and trans kit? What do I need as far as the wiring goes from the donor truck? I drive truck over the road so I dont have alot of time t
  2. Ok thanks. Just checkin. Last time I drove it any distance at all. I filled up b4 I left town drove 120 miles and had a 1/4 tank of fuel left. I have know there was a problem but it was intermitent. And could never pin point it when it did act up. So I hope replacing the intake gaskets fixes this problem! Thanks again
  3. Well I figured out one problem with my truck. The intake gaskets are leaking. Would that cause bad fuel milage? It never set off any cel or nothing. So one problem fixed and a few more to go.
  4. Thanks guys. I will post some pics when I get her cleaned up. Im not new to chevy pickups this will be my 5th since 95. I went backwards on this one. Wich I usually dont do. But it was the low miles that caught my attention.
  5. Hello all. I have just purchased a 99 chevy silverado. Reg cab short box 4x4 with 75,000 miles on it. It is making a noise that sounds like a tensioner bearing that is gettin dry. It isnt all the time, just intermitintly At first I thought it was the abs pump thats where it sound like it was coming from. Pulled the fuse and the noise was still there Then I put my hand on the engine cove and could feel the vibration in the cover whenever the noise came about. I cant seem to pinpoint it. Anyone have any Ideas? Thanks for any help u might have
