OK....... New member here. I found this site but looking up parts for my van.
I just bought a 95 GMC Safari SLX model for $300
I have always wanted this type of van and I finally got one.

I gotta ask those, how do I post pics here. Not really familiar but if someone can point me in the right direction.

The van is a simple van but it's going to need some work. The owner passed away a few years ago and the family wanted to scrap the van at the junkyard but didn't want it to go there.

I wanna show my build cause I have seen a lot of information on this site so it's the least I can do.

Yeah, easy on the JB weld. That hole looks like one of the factory ones inside the intake for draining the oil that condenses in there via blow-by. I think it just looks like broken cast metal because its crusty from the carbon deposit buildup.

And on earth would a chunk break-off inside the intake manifold by itself? And even if so ... where did the chunk go without blowing up the rest of the engine?

Test fuel pressure, make sure its staying high with the key on (not cranking) and then observe if it drops while cranking.

I skimmed your thread quick, so forgive me if I missed it. But if you didn't already do the fuel pump/fuel filter, those are within the realm of normal maintenance items that you should replace anyway.

And seeing as you've had a ton of wiring issues, check the wires going to and into the tank.
