    The knock sensors (2) are located underneath the intake manifold. When I swapped out the LS1 (Gen III) engine in my '98 Firebird I pinched one of the knock sensor wires on the first sensor when I...

    You have several differing opinions on this subject. I mentioned my '69 Firebird because I think the seats would've been easier on that car than the Hummer. One item that was mentioned was if the...

    If GM could've kept the brand going for another year or two we might've got the 3.6L as the base engine which seems to be the one powering the GM line-up now. I still like the comfort and size of my...

    It's harder than it looks. It takes a pretty good grip to stretch the material properly and get it to lay right. It's kind of an art. I recovered the seats in my old '69 Firebird many years ago. ...

    Sounds to me like the dreaded PITA Pass-Lock glitch that started affecting me after about 100K. It's easy enough to get to the switch. I had enough practice after the one I bought wouldn't work and...

    What came to my mind is perhaps a simple test and that would be to use the fade control to check volume left to right and front to rear while also varying the volume. Maybe that is something to try.

    Not an option when the parts come up "discontinued".

    For the parts that are no 6 plastic/ PP; you can plastic weld them. It takes practice and there are plenty of YouTube videos to use as reference. The harder pieces like the external grille would...

    I have a magnetic drain plug on some of my vehicles and mostly I just wipe off the black mark (if at all) like it's a small felt tip mark on a paper. If you get chunks on the drain plug chances are...

    Oh yeah, and the FSMs you talk about for H3s are three manuals that stack about ten inches high and are expensive.

    It's kind of a long shot but I have another idea. In my electronics and auto career I've seen where individual terminals in a gang plug don't seat all the way. I've used duck bill pliers (no...

    $60K???!!! That will buy a lot of Hummer mods including a great engine swap. No thanks on a Jeep Gladiator.

    I did a search on GM crate engines for the 3.7L part no. 12626560 and it has been disc. GM gave up on the I5 so any replacement engine in the future will have more than five cylinders in my truck if...

    Can't get much better pedigree on a fabricator than a guy who once worked for Boyd Coddington; at least that's where I think I saw him on the Hot Rod TV shows. It's always a treat to see quality...

    I test drove an Adventure I5 from the lot in Thousand Oaks back when I was shopping ten years ago. I liked the truck but really decided if I was going for the I5 it had to be an M5 and I found one...

    If you replace the TPS sensor you're golden, I bet. I prefer my vehicles that are drive by cable vs. DBW like the GenIV GM engines. They just seem to be more dependable to me. If that TPS sensor...

    Did you ever replace the throttle body? The TPS sensor is integral to the throttle body. I never had any TPS issues with my other vehicles that are drive-by-cable vs. DBW like my 3T. When it acted...

    I agree with you about the I5. I think that GM giving up on the engine is the only reason for a different engine swap. I think Alex is probably right about crate I5's no longer being available. I...

    If I ever get to the point where I might replace my I5 I'd consider a GenIV 4.8L engine also. Drop in a cam and you can still get decent HP and don't have to deal with the AFM/ DoD complications in...

    I think I read somewhere that the 3.6L V6 was going to replace the I5 until the news of Hummer demise replaced that discussion. The 4.3L might be a decent engine for a swap but I don't think they...

    With that kind of cost an LS V8 replacement is justified, IMO. I don't think the I5 is a bad engine. It's just that GM gave up on it due to economy reasons, and maybe other reasons. I had an '86...
