Re: Switched steering columns now I don't know what gear I'm

I more then likely didn't see that clip when I was swapping the columns. I'll go look through there tomorrow. I knew it was not one of wires cause it would Make no sense to have the shift indicator run off of an electrical piece. Thank you for the tips hopefully I can get it working again! At least ...

Switched steering columns now I don't know what gear I'm in?

I just did the steering column switch but now my gear reader won't move out of the park position even though I'm in gear. Is there anyway to fix this or should I just start counting to know my current gear?

Thanks a bunch!

Re: Over heating problem please help!!

I've got the 4.3 vin z I think. I only say I think because I have recently learned its not the original engine but it is a 4.3 and it has the transmission out of a 93 Camero. I'll pull the dog house tomorrow but the EGR valve will be on the drivers Side under the dog house right?

Thanks,
Derek

Re: Over heating problem please help!!

I believe the radiator has fixed my problem. I'm wondering why I keep flashing a code 32 though?

Re: Over heating problem please help!!

Mrjames- before I replace the intake gaskets and thermostat and sender my van didn't have a thermostat in it so it ran cold until I started to climb a hill then it would climb up to the yellow. After all that work it would sit at an idle an over heat but if you started driving it would cool down. So...

Re: Over heating problem please help!!

Can get in there to get a good picture unfortunately. So i put the fan shroud on and drove around without my heat on and it slowly slowly started climbing above halfway point. I then killed it and started it back 30 minutes later blasting my heat and the temp never went about half way. Im thinking s...

Re: Over heating problem please help!!

It's not the t-stat for sure. I went and bought a fan shroud today and put it on! It seems to have helped alot! It now stays just under half way and my fan clutch turns on and off instead Of always on because it can now heat up with the air flow directed towards the proper area. My buddy who did the...
