Chevy 5.3 Vortec on the dyno at the Atlanta International Car Show
This is a chevy 5.3 vortec on the Dyno at the Atlanta
International Auto Show. This engine has fuel saving technology. (Active
Fuel Managment) It cuts 4 cylinders at highway cruise to save on gas. It
also will run on e-85. This has a nice small block sound! Sorry for how
shakey it is, I didn't realize I was shaking it so much.
Go to about 4:12 or 4:13 for the revving up of the engine, and about 5:08
for the WOT (still revving out) sound.

Chevy Vortec lifter & valve tap how to repair it
this video has info on how to fix a severe valve tap or sticky lifter using
1 quart of automatic transmission fluid with 4 quarts of oil. the trans
fluid is a high detergent that loosens up sludge build up in a motor from
lack of oil changes, you will be amazed at what pouring 1 quart of trans
fluid in a neglected motor can do. the truck in this video got a double
treatment and now runs smooth with no taps and the check engine light went
out as soon as I started it. also after the second treatment I changed the
oil & filter and the clumps of sludge that were left in it broke down into
the oil from the trans fluid and it flushed it out. I
I realize I bash fram oil filters in this video and any filter wouldnt have
helped in this case because the truck was so neglected any filter would
have pluged up. howerver,,, Fram in my opinion is cheap crap.and over the
years of having hundreads of cars I can honestly say if you have 2
identical engines 1 using Fram the other using Wix or Napa the Fram motor
will die prematurely due to lack of filtering.

Coolant leaks on GM 5.0L & 5.7L Vortec Engines built between 1995 and 2002
can some times be attributed to the stock plastic intake manifold gaskets.
This video shows the replacement of the Intake Manifold Gaskets on a 5.0L
Vortec Engine in a 1997 GMC K1500 Sierra Pickup.
