I might be able to get my hands on a free 2011 Chevy 1500 with a 4.3, which I think is the LU3. The only issue is that the engine was starved of oil, and its done. I have an old 4.3 out of a 2000 GMC Jimmy which I think is an L35? correct me if i'm wrong. would I be able to interchange parts off of each other to make 1 good engine that would work without too many modifications? It needs to be cheap as I am too broke to be doing this in the first place. Any help would be great, Thanks!
My 02 sonoma with the v6 4.3 will kinda shake when accelerating between 5 and 10 Mph, If I accelerate somewhat slow then it seems fine and really dont shake but if I gas it like im in a hurry it shakes and then disapears and it is smooth as can be. The shaking seems to be coming from the engine area behind the dash. I have replaced the spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, cleaned the mass air flow sensor, cleaned the throttle body intake, just yesterday I took the distributor cap off and inspected the points on the inside of the cap and they were all corroded up so i cleaned them up the best I could so they still appear unperfect although they look much better than before. What else might be he problem? EGR valve? ignition coil pack? the whole distributor? you name it and ill check it guys. I appreiate anyone that can help me out. I will be online alot so I respond quick.
