    Hey everybody, I've got a question for ya! I've got a '98 1500 5.9 4x4. A few years back I did the plenum repair and replaced my thermostat with a 180 degree one. All good there, aside from a heater that always gurgled and was sub-par. After reading up, I'm sure it was air from me not burping it...

    Hi, I've recently rebuilt the engine in my truck and it runs good, however transmissions aren't my forte. The truck will not engage in anything, but 1st gear and even that it's very SLOW and there's barely any power at all. Did I do something wrong with the gearshift linkage? Before I rebuilt...

    Need suggestions. Threw a 340 code so I replaced the CPS, rotor, Cap and plugs. CEL went out so I figured it was fixed. Got it up to operating temp and shut it down and it won't start. Turns over great with no starter problems but I have to let it cool down to about 120-130 degrees and it will...

    I'm looking into doing a custom cai that sits real close to the front grille for some actual COLD air, but then I saw some posts about using a 14x3 air cleaner. Most people seem to think it doesn't help much since it pulls hot air still, but what if I had a hood scoop to ram cool air right onto...
