Barnekkid: Isn't the oil pan connected to the bell housing in some way? I'm planning
a similar job on my Blazer next year.
Mickey Flowers: Good video, some other areas to keep in mind. I just removed the engine on
my '99 and I did a lot of the same things you have here. The top driver
side transmission bolt was completely inaccessible from the top or the
wheel area to start with. I had to drop the tranny to get to it. I've seen
comments that this is not necessary but, I used every method I could think
of and no luck. The bolt that held the fuel lines to the back of the driver
head was impossible to access until I moved the engine forward a little and
then I had to use an open wrench from the wheel to get to it. I have no
idea on what I'm going to do to get these 2 bolts back in when I do the
install. Keep you posted.
shane taylor: I never got any codes, but I sold the vehicle not sure about now
michael black: how did u get the top bolts on the tranny
Relundus Washington: is there any waythat I can remove it without having to take distributor
jon soma: how do you get to the two bolts on top of the transmission without taking
the whole engine apart
Jimmy Cody: I left both manifolds on and oil cooler set up
the best way to get theses enignes out is to take out the heads then it
will give yu alot more room to work with and to take it out easier and alot
more room for clearneces and stuff
so then to put it back is take the heads off then put the block in then
replaces the head gaskets and intake gaskets then you know there good and
dont have to fo them later on
might as well if your putting in a used engine then you know nothing is bad
thats the easiest way i think think of
take the block out it self after taking out the whole top end parts
i am looking for some heads are those heads good on that blowen engine
if you still have them can i have them or how much you want for them
DailyWalk365: Thanks for taking the time to make this video. I'm gearing up to remove one
from my '96 S10.
MARK CASTORENA: How did you fix the crank bearing same thing just happened to mine
fivesforfun: shane did you have to do a case relearn on this after you was finished? i
did this same swap but im getting a p0300 multiple cylinder misfire code.
Chris Featherly: I'm pulling a 4.3 out of my blazer right now and i was wondering how the
hell to get to those torque conv bolts... I didnt even think to look
throught the starter hole... So now i feel dumb lol
AJ Stilwell: thanks for the great info, im in the process of pulling one on a 2000.
glenn ploucher: im so happy this helped me life savior vid
TrustMe2morrow: I just replaced my 1998 blazer looks identical to yours. After putting the
new one in I don't know why my shifting indicator isn't working? you know
where to check? It's alot of work what an ass engine had a rough time
taking it out wish I would off show your video first
shane taylor: Maybe two hours, then another hour and a half to make sure I wasn't pulling
apart a wiring harness or damaging something.
James Speed: Anyone smell popcorn¿ I hear it and now can taste it ;-) thank you mr.
hx9e8s: First time pulling a motor that's seized. How do I get to the torque
converter bolts. Any way other than dropping the oil pan and crank while
engine is still in?
shane taylor: not sure about shift indicator, but as long as it shift easily - should be
shane taylor: @dalila4577 i think so.
elpatronmoto: Thanx 4 da vid. Its fukn cool wen people help out other people with car
problems on utube.
ricvis44: I'm removing the 4.3 in my 98' S10 Blazer 4x4 and the tip for removing the
torque converter bolts will help greatly! Thanks!
RagingWhiteman: Can you go more into detail on the top bolts please? Also, the left side
top bolt above the exhaust manifold. Cannot get a wrench or socket on it.
Little clearance. Anything out help.
Zero Cyde: Jesus the torque converter bolts!!! Of course!!! My buddy and I spent all
night last night pissed because the damned engine wouldn't separate from
the bellhousing. Our plan was to disconnect the tranny from the
transfercase so we could slide the tranny out more easily, but called it a
night with 1 bolt to go. Thank you for this video, we should have no
problem today finishing up.
shane taylor: That's probably the worst- I think it may be the one with the gas line
clamp. I used a ratchet wrench and jacked the transmission up and down
carefully. Takes a whole lot of trying, move the engine forward a half inch
would make it easier.
majestybrooklyn: any specific tools needed
paulsjunkcars: I have to do this on my 1994 GMC Jimmy 4x4 here soon. Nice to see it can be
done with a few tips and tricks. Thanks for posting.
shane taylor: I always try to leave things connected if all possible.some manuals have
you remove things for no reason it seems.
Ronald Ehrlich: Thanks man I am in the middle of pulling my 4.3 and ran into the issue with
the same small things hangin me up. Your video showed me exactly what was
holdin me up.
MrKyle200: Just rebuilt a 4.3 for my silverado so I probably have more compartment
room... major tip that's not too time consuming is to remove the radiator.
And don't unhook the compressor lines... its a no brainer but when I got
there I wasn't thinking. Thanks for the video... all applies to the
silverado with a 4l60e
dalila4577: would it be the same on a 98 model??
Kevin Dollinger: I have done quit a few of these blazer/jimmy engines. What I find to be the
easiest is pull tranny X-member, jack up tranny to get all the top bolts
off bell housing, fuel lines and wires. Let jack down pull exhaust off,
pull starter, torque conv. bolts, and all other bell housing bolts then go
up and remove the front of the engine (a/c, p/s, alt, smog pump, and water
pump) then undo the motor mounts and pull. All in about 90mins with no
torching or cutting.
shane taylor: @MrLonghairlimy2 I know what you mean, I could only turned that clamp bolt
5 degrees at a time till it was tight- took forever.
majestybrooklyn: im having trouble getting the top driver side bolt out of the bell housing,
this ones not the difficult 2 top ones those where time consuming, and was
it easier to put back those bolts...
Kevin Dollinger: yes, same on all 95-05
Michael Keller: Thanks for the info. My friend picked one up cheap and even though it's
running fine it has 250k miles on it and he wanted me to pull it and go
KramersKlassyKustoms: Im going to say leaking intake gaskets thinned the oil and you spun a
bearing....pretty common. Hit me up about that exhaust...
Blake Hughes: Hey this video was extremely helpful. I'm doing a 350 swap in an s10 4x4
and this will help a lot with getting the transmission which is hangin me
up big time
josephl. Carson: Very helpful Shane-Thanks alot, well done post!!!!
789mopedman: 2 1/2 months, was it worth it? :D
liljen013086: thanks man!
Dan Neuenswander: Thanks Chevy for a making a 4.3 crap motor that spins bearings ! Had I
known of this I'd have bought a Toyota or Ford. My motor started knocking
yesterday, babied from day one and Amsoil from birth. Didn't matter,
apparently Chevy designed a crapty oil passage to the rod bearings. Thanks
for the video, I start dissassembly next weekend.
Tobolose: Thanks for making all these videos man.
Jimmy Marchetti: how did you get the power steering pump off? im redoing my 97 GMC Jimmy
with the same motor and i bought the tool to remove the pump but its
hanging me up on it bigtime
Rebel97Yell: Thanks for the video, I am about to pull my 4.3 from a 04 silverado that's
totaled, and put it in an 06 that has a very high mileage motor in it.
iamchevyman5: about how many man-hours would you say this took you to get it as far as
you did with this one video?
MrLonghairlimy2: So like how about the clamp on the drivers side with the fuel lines. What a
freaker that clamp is.
ELK INK: I just did one yesterday.. i suggest whiskey lots and lots of whiskey.
David Athey: how do you get to the tranny bolts on the top?
