Engine Replacement

Postby hugotaxi [OP] » July 31st 2014, 8:29pm

New member here, Boz, owner operator of Hogo Taxi in Honolulu Hawaii, I have a question! My truck is a 2005 with 215000 miles its a taxi so I put a lot on it. At some point I will be looking to replace the engine and transmission. I understand that the engine out of several vehicles will fit right into the van. My question is, What is the latest model engine and transmission that will go in the van and\or what good options are there out there? For example, Can I put an engine out of a 2010 Blazer, or an S10 in my truck! Anyhow?

2010 Blaser or S-10? I thought the S-10 chassis (Blaser included) died after 2005 just like the Astro did. :?:

Chevy Astro and GMC Safari were basicly the same 96 to 2005 which was the last year that they made them. An S10 or Blazer engine will work, but you would have pain with different sensor location and cable routing.

4.3L Vortec V6 and 4L60E transmission. There's tons of them at wreckers on the island. There's even people parting out Astros on Craigslist. Try to find stuff that is close to your Model Year as things like wiring harnesses and ignition system components are different.

There are some shops on Oahu that can do good engine and tranny rebuilds. What the current condition of your engine or tranny? Is there any leaks or are you losing fluids?
