What is the spark plug gap for 350 Chevy?
The early points type distributor is most happy with the standard of. 35 thousands gap …those are found in your pre 1975 cars and trucks with any motor factory installed. That gap is probably a standard of the auto industry and lots of other enginesThe post 1975 with the hei electronic ignition opens the gap up another .10 to 45 thousands gap. There may be some real late model coil pack type ignitions that are at the 60 thousand gap. But the first two mentioned are the best starting point i have knowledge of …. Make sure you have a idea of approx what year the motor is because a few of them require special irridium based spark plugs. And not the standard R45ts like most chevy small blocks normally use. Good luck i hope this will help you
What was the price of Chevrolet K5 Blazer in 1989?
The K5 Blazer was the smallest full size SUV version of the Chevrolet C/K family. Introduced to the Chevrolet line in 1969, the full-size Blazer was replaced in 1995 by the Chevrolet Tahoe. In 1970, GMC introduced its own model of the truck, called the Jimmy, which discontinued in 1993 and replaced by the GMC Yukon. Both were based on the short wheelbase trucks and were available with either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. The Blazer's long wheelbase relative (with an integrated rear body, and doors for 2nd row passengers) is known as the Chevrolet Suburban. The "Jimmy" name was chosen to reflect the GMmy sound in a similar manner in how Jeep was a pronunciation of GP in the competing market. - wikipediaThe 1989 Blazer had new base and up-level grilles, as well as new headlight bezels, body side moldings, and bumper rub strips. Corporate 10-bolt axles were upgraded to 30 spline axle shafts from previous 28 spline. New for 1989 was the introduction of an all-new base coat/clear coat paint. The standard L05 5.7-liter V-8 now had serpentine accessory drive belts in place of the older multi-belt accessory drive.The original specs when this car came out were the below: Year: 1989Production Total: 26,663Base Price: 15,965Weight: 4,878Wheel Base: 106.5 in.Fuel Tank Capacity: 26-gallon/31- gallonLength: 184.8 in.Height: 73.4 in.Std.

What are the differences between a K1500 and a C1500 Chevy truck?
Plain and simple, the difference between a K series truck and a C series truck is a transfer case, different suspension, and a front axle. The K series truck is four wheel drive and has these items. The C series is two wheel drive and does not, therefore, it also uses a transmission that has a longer output shaft and a tail shaft housing, because it isn't mounted to a transfer case. The C designates the vehicle as a two wheel drive. The K, a 4WD.Some other differences are that many of the earlier models of the 2WD truck used the 5-bolt lug pattern while the 4WD used the 6-lug pattern. Also, the 2WD truck used a rotor integrated into the hub, and that hub had an inner and outer wheel bearing and bearing races, as well as a grease seal, in the hub. The hub and rotor were mounted on a spindle and a nut was used to hold it in place, similar to how the front hubs were mounted on most rear wheel drive automobiles. The 4WD hub was part of the axle assembly. The rotor was placed on the hub and held on by the brake calipers.
Which vehicles use the 5 x 4.75 bolt pattern on their wheels?
many modern BMW's. Lots of GM cars and light trucks - Corvette, Camaro, Firebird, Mid-Size Blazer, Jimmy, Caprice, Roadmaster, RWD Monte Carlo, 80's Regal, 80's Cutlass - Basically every mid/full size GM car from the 70's and 80's.
Why do my hazard lights work, but not my turn signals?
Hazard lights and turn signals use the same bulb, so it is not the bulb, the lamp, or the cables to them. Turn signals only work when the ignition is on; hazard lights work whether the ignition is on or not. The two systems have separate power supplies, so they have separate fuses. You may have a blown fuse.Different vehicles use different circuits, and it is not possible to accurately diagnose the fault with the small amount of information provided. You need a circuit diagram and a voltmeter, and a continuity tester. First locate and test the turn signal fuse. Do you have voltage to and from the turn signal switch?The hazard light switch is not a simple on/off switch. In the “on” position, a fused battery feed connects to left and right turn signal. In the “off” position, the left turn switch wire is connected to the left turn lamp and the right turn switch wire is connected to the right turn lamp, so there are 3 inputs and 2 outputs.The fault could be a fuse, turn signal switch, hazard switch, flasher unit, or a broken wire or connection.
What's the difference between green coolant and orange coolant?
Engine coolant is transparent colourless and can have various dyes added for identification. Different suppliers use different colours. Please READ what is says on the can and compare that to what your handbook recommends. Don’t play games with proprietary product that are not approved by the car makers.Do not listen to a dealer or mechanic who says otherwise, he does not pick up the guarantee when it breaks. Major oil companies will always recommend the correct product, even sometimes recommending a competitor product!
How do I bypass power steering pump and completely get rid of it?
What do you mean when you say that the pump can't be repaired or replaced? If it's a matter of not being able to afford to fix it or you can't get the parts, then you are probably going to be without a truck for a while until you can get it fixed properly. While it may technically be possible to do away with the power steering, it is most likely going to be more difficult and more expensive than making repairs (if you want it to be safe at all).Vehicles that have power steering simply aren't designed to be driven without it. You will cause damage to other steering components such as the rack or gearbox. Not only that, but vehicles are geared differently now. The steering on a non powered vehicle was designed to function without hydraulics. Without power, a modern system's steering radius is affected greatly, they literally can't turn as far without power.The heavier the vehicle, the harder it is to steer without power. In particular, I would not attempt to drive any pickup(or larger vehicle) on the road without power steering. There's simply to much risk.There are only two times when I would even consider driving a vehicle with failed power steering:In an emergency. Either I need to get the vehicle home, or I need to get someone to a hospital and have no other options.It's a farm vehicle, the only thing I use it for is moving a few tools around a field.I've had to move two modern vehicles with failed power steering. The first was a Honda Civic that wouldn't run. We dragged it about ten miles with me steering the car. It was really hard to turn at all, and that was with a fairly lightweight car. Afterwards it felt like I'd spent the entire day weightlifting, just from a short drive.The other vehicle was my friend's Dakota pickup. I went out with him to get the truck. The pump had failed and we needed to get it back to his house so that we had space and tools to work with. We got it started, he hopped in to drive, and I followed in my car. I followed him right up until he plowed into a tree on a particularly sharp turn. He simply couldn't make the turn without power steering. He ended up with a tow bill, body shop bill, the repair bill for the pump, and a hospital visit on top. That's why I will never recommend doing away with power steering on a vehicle.
Auto Repair: How long should brake service normally take?
There is also the issue of skill. Some shops have newer guys do simpler jobs, like maintenance. So it's also very likely the guy was having some trouble. Even at an independent shop 2 hours was about the tops for 4 wheel brake job. We'd order the parts and take it all apart, if machining needed to be done get it started and move to something else. By time the parts arrived you'd hopefully be able to put some stuff together. You check the parts and if they're right, get it together, if they're wrong you get new parts ordered. The worst I ever had was a brake job that came in around 2, checked it and needed front pads, rotors, and rear drums and shoes. Took it apart and moved on. Checked parts when they came... the rears were all wrong. It was 4 already because delivery gets busy near the end of the day. Assembled fronts and waited until 530 to get rears again. Made sure they were right, gave old ones as exchange and put rears together. It was almost 6. Got the car ready for a brake flush(also sold), performed the flush and let the writer know. It was almost 615 and the customer waited the entire time, needing to get to class. That was the worst.Typically it's 40 minutes in a dealer setting for all 4 without machining, about 60 with. You check them, get parts, and assemble. That's it. Machining is typically very easy if you know what you're doing and you get started ASAP so you can work and machine. In a smaller shop you can hear when they're finished to remind you about them. If you forget though nothing happens and time is wasted.So what you want to do is not wait for your car to be done if you can. Let the shop worry about issues and you can get on with it. If you're on a tight schedule and need the car consider returning when you have more time, brakes very rarely need to be done immediately, as it is with most vehicle repairs.
