GMC Jimmy, S10, Blazer DIY How to Diagnose HVAC Mode Control - Vent - Defrost - Floor Selector
This video is should provide a starting point in trying to diagnose a GMC
fan mode selection issue. My 2000 Blazer always blows air out of the dash
vents. This video demonstrates how the vacuum actuators work to divert air
from the vents to the foot wells as well as to the defrost vent. In the
next video I will test the vacuum to ensure that I have sufficient vacuum
to the actuators. Ultimately I believe that I;ll have to replace the upper
actuator, as I believe that it is faulty.

motor on a Chevy Blazer, GMC Jimmy and many more General Motors vehicles.

it's cold. Please leave questions and comments below. Keep in mind all of
my repair videos are backyard mechanic style. Sometimes it's not purdy, but

1998 GMC Jimmy 4.3L Vortec Intake Manifold Gasket
Intake manifold gasket replacement on my 1998 GMC Jimmy 4.3L Vortec V6,
CSEFI throttle body, EDI Ignition system, 227000kms. Used Felpro gasket kit
which included intake gaskets (2), valve cover gaskets (2), throttle body
gasket (1), intake plenum gasket (1), fuel line o-rings (2), distributor
gasket (1). RTV in kit is not enough, buy a bigger tube, use high temp
thread sealer on intake manifold bolts to seal and give proper torque. Let
RTV cure 2 days (about 7 degrees C in my parkade, Vancouver, Canada).
Didn't have to use new coolant, just re-used old stuff. Ended up removing
all 4 bolts on Power Steering pump to get at front left intake bolt. Oil
filling tube wouldn't come off of right valve cover. Took me 1 full
saturday (10hrs) to remove and clean all parts, another 5 hours sunday to
reassemble, then let RTV cure. Used Haynes manual as reference.
