    This wound up being the MAP sensor that I had just replaced. Chinese POS crapped out within just a few weeks of installing it. I had done some reading up on the topic and found that if the MAP...

    I've been having the hard start problem with my 98 Suburban when it sits for more than a day or two. I found that turning the ignition switch on and off a few times and letting the fuel pump cycle...
  3. Battery isolator solution for dual battery setups (factory & aftermarket)

    I'm not an expert on anything (certainly not electrical issues), so I'm hoping that I don't make a complete idiot out of myself by sharing this with y'all. I've got a 98 Suburban with a dual battery...

    Guys, trouble has returned and is getting worse. Since this ordeal started I cleaned the MAF, the IACV, and the EGR valve (not to mention a new MAP sensor a few weeks before because I broke the old...

    Dunno. That's just the way it was when I got it.

    I went back out a little while ago to move and unhook my trailer and the light is off now. Yay!!!

    This one has 2 batteries. Disconnect both and touch ends on one pair?

    Just pulled the IACV and found a hump of sorts, made out of carbon, built up on the end. Brushed that off and put it back in and it seems to be starting and idling much better, but the CEL is still...

    No, didn't replace the upper intake seal. I have the one that came with the set around here somewhere though.
  9. Got some trouble codes but I don't believe them

    I just installed a new set of intake manifold gaskets on the 350 in my 98 GMC Suburban a few weeks ago. A few days ago it started intermittently stumbling, dying at idle, and the CEL came on. It...

    Buttoned her up today. While I was doing the intake gaskets I went ahead and did plug wires, cap, rotor, points (j/k :) ), thermostat, and fuel filter. Before I fired it up I turned the switch on...

    No, no grinder, but I did scrape it off real good with a razor/scraper and then cleaned it with some carburetor cleaner and a rag. I think this new gasket will compensate for what little pitting I...

    Yeah, I found the clip, kinda hidden on the back of the plug.

    Got the intake off today and I can see where it was definitely leaking. There's some pitting in the intake too, from that Dexcool I...

    I'm going to go ahead and do the intake manifold gaskets. That seems like a very logical suspect in several things that I'm seeing here, including air/fuel mixture problems (rotten gas mileage, rich...

    I guess a leaking intake manifold gasket would also explain the hard starts too.

    Funny you mention that. I had a slow leak in the high pressure power steering hose for a while and the driver side valve cover is covered with power steering fluid. Do you think it's sucked that...

    If it were really going to 0 psi I would expect you to hear some terrible engine noises when it did and the vehicle would transform its-self into a large paperweight in short order. It's probably a...

    I've noticed sometimes the lights in my selector buttons work and sometimes they don't, at least the one inside the 2wd button. Everything seems to work okay though, except I may have had some...

    That figures. I figured there'd be some extra bracketry, but welding those one wouldn't be a big deal. The difference in frame rails sure stinks though. If it ain't a bolt in swap, then I'd sure...
