Hello all, I have a question in regards to replacing a block heater cable. My LLY has been garage kept it’s entire life and has never needed to be plugged in. Recently got an L5P l, so the LLY is parked outside. Went to plug it in today and noticed the block heater cable was rubbing onto some engine components which made it tear pretty much all the way through. I’m assuming the heater itself is fine, so I’d rather not replace the whole unit, rather the cord. Do you simply just unplug the old and plug in the new one behind the passenger wheel? Any recommendations on what cord or where to buy? OEM? Or will something from an auto parts store do the trick? Read a lot about splicing, I’d rather have piece of mind that I have a new properly functions cord.

I bought a1999 GMC Sierra 1500
4x4 truck about 6 months ago
I’ve been working on it a lot
ive done put 2200 into it
i want to get it into tip/top shape
so I know it’s going to take a lot more money than what I already spent
but at the moment I’m short on funds and can’t afford to change every piece
this is what’s going on
two days ago my truck started shaking in the front driver side and I hear a knock every now and again
I jacked it up and I can move the tire all over the place
is that the hub
or tie rod
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!
Hello everyone. I have a fun issue. My 99 suburban decided to die on me recently. Was running alright. Went into my parents for maybe 30mins. Came back out it fired up and then died maybe a half second to second after. Never had the issue before. Today decided to attempt to diagnose. It has spark. Distributer looks good. Changed the fuel pump with assembly and fuel filter. Also changed the cam sensor and crankshaft sensor. Lastly changed the ignition switch due to sometimes it acting up and messing with my gauges and transmission. Checked the idle control valve motor. Seems to be working. Cleaned the gunk off of it and the throttle body. Checked all the relays. All working. All fuses are good. Attempting the security passcode reset now due to running out of options. The security light isnt showing. But not sure if this suburban has one. Spray starter fluid into intake and it will run for a second longer then dies out again. Not sure what's causing it. thinking maybe fuel pressure regulator. Any ideas?
