    Well I've got myself a 2000 Silverado z71 5.3,4l60e, bone stock aside from the trutrac rearend..

    Transmission is slipping and engine blows blue, black, and lol... purple?

    My question is, what kinds of things should I look for when swapping an engine and transmission from another Silverado? (used)

    Is there anything specific from other model years with the 5.3 I should look at?
    Will it just be a bolt on operation?
    What kinds of things should I look for in a used engine?
    What will be the additional parts I'll need excluding, those i swap from the the engine already in the truck?

    Since the truck is 4x4, can I take a 4L60E tranny from a 99-2002 Tahoe or Silverado and swap it in? Or is it specific to the transfercase?

    Is there anything I missed or what anyone may need to know?


    Thanks!
