Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Chevy Truck V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 187000 miles
my 1994 chevy pickup originally had a 4.3L v6 in it but it had alot of miles and was useing oil so I decided to swap it out for a 5.7L. The 5.7 came out of a 1993 2 wheel drive pickup that had been wrecked. I got the computer for that engine along with the engine. It had 130000 miles on it when I pulled it. Since I have put it in there I have been having problems with it dying when I put it in gear or when I come to a stop so I constantly have to drive with one foot on the gas and one on the break. The guy I bought the engine from said it never did that to him. I have replaced the idle air control valve and that made no differance. About a week after I got it in I took it to a shop and had the timing set and the computer reset and also had a diagnostic ran on it but nothing showed up besides low vacume. The person at the shop said the low vacume shouldnt affect it like that but I dont know. Any help would be appreciated
have the same problem?
