Hat geantwortet auf: 94 Chevy v8 350 rear driver tire not spinningMost likely it does not have a Posi-Traction rear differential and it's not broken. You just need to get it out of the mud or at least the right rear tire out of the hole it dug. If the truck had Posi-Traction both wheels would drive. But a non posi will spin the wheel with least amount of traction. There is a technique for driving in the mud or snow with an open rear differential and one of the main things is to avoid any tire spin. In a Chevy it is difficult to master. In a Ford you can select Drive 2 and it will start from a stop in 2nd gear. It makes it difficult to spin the wheels. The Chevy will still start in 1st gear even with Drive 2 selected. Once the right tire digs a hole it becomes time for a tow or a jack and wood, rocks and dry dirt, or wait for dry weather and let the ground dry out. Don't take anything apart. Just get it out of the mud.
Hat geantwortet auf: Turn signal causing brake light to go outYes, it's possible the turn signal switch is failing, but it's most likely still in the turn signal flasher. The right side bulbs might have enough resistance to heat the flasher and get it working so when you switch back to the left side the flasher continues to work. Before you buy anything, try switching the turn signal flasher with the Hazard flasher. That flasher will flash even with no bulbs. The fact the brake light goes out is showing the turn signal switch is working to some degree. It switches the power coming from the brake light switch and sends it through the turn signal flasher. If switching the flasher works, try using a TRIDON #EL12 flasher unit. If it only happens when you have your foot on the brake, then you have a ground issue. Also if you installed any (front or rear) of the turn signal bulbs with LED bulbs you need to install a Flasher designed to work with the LED bulbs (like a Hazard flasher). The LED bulbs draw extremely low current and will not heat up the factory designed #552 turn ...
Hat geantwortet auf: 89 Chevy 350 to backfire constantlyIf it backfires when you let off the gas peddle it has air getting into the exhaust, either an exhaust gasket or cracked manifold before the catalytic converter or the emission control's Air Injection system. The air injection check valves (STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS PT#AV7) are common failure parts. Cost about $18.00 each you should replace both if they are the problem. Be sure to use a wrench on the pipe and a wrench on the valve or the pipe will twist and break and sometimes a torch is required. If you hear a pop sound under the hood when you accelerate it is most likely running lean (Not enough fuel) from either a vacuum leak or the fuel pump failing (low fuel pressure). The 90 degree elbow in the PCV Valve hose at the base of the throttle body to the PCV valve is common to either fall off or have a hole in it. Most of the time the engine will idle at a higher RPM a suction sound can be heard. The hose is available in the "HELP" section at any Auto Parts store. I think the part is a DORMAN# 46001. If the POP...
Hat geantwortet auf: Truck dies, replaced EGR Valve,Dist. Cap,Spark plugs,Fuel pump,Rotor BIt would be good if you can tell us the year and engine size and if it has Spark or no Spark, Fuel or no Fuel, when you crank it over and if it starts right up after it dies. I'm hoping it's a 97 1500 with a 5.7L. Those trucks have four common no start or stall failures. One you already replaced is the fuel pump but generally they give you hard starts and no power when they are failing. Your failure is most likely the distributor pick up or ignition module but don't replace them individually. Replace the Distributor as a unit because the distributor shaft is most likely caked up and becoming difficult to turn and it comes complete with the module, the pick up, the cap and rotor AND it is only about $80.00. You don't really need to buy a $200.00 plus Delco, but you need to set the Distributor back in, in the correct position (the rotor aming to the exact same position the old distributor came out) and reset the ignition timing or cam/crank snyc. So you many need a timing light or you may need a diagnostic scan...
