Anyone have personal experience? I know they have been around forever and mass produce these.
I do not believe in the cheapo engine thing...however
My 02 1500's 5.3 has almost 190k and pretty sure I have a lifter on its way out.
My oil pressure gauge is going crazy also..dont know if its a sender, a bad o ring or what.
I can get a longblock for 1799...figured Id do some portwork, [email protected]
torque cam that can smog (already did the intake/TB) and run it til I can take the original and slowly do a rebuild I have more confidence in.
This is my primary DD...so need it running. Guess I have to get the El running eh? this should be interesting. 112 deg heat and a car thats been sitting a year LOL
Not expecting greatness from this thing just get me by for a year.
A used one with unknown history and tons of mi is still 1g-1500
Some yards claim theirs all have under 100k I find that hard to believe they are 20 yrs old!
Other options? Suggestions?
