    Thank you. Do you think the transmission would be the same (for a direct swap)? 1999 is standard cab, 2002 is extended cab.

    engine swap 99 gmc sonoma 4.3

    Hi, thanks for the reply, I have not (due to the exorbitant amount of snow here, trying to get a jump on it when it finally melts enough to get it into the shop) Are there any other ways to discern differences.?

    engine swap 99 gmc sonoma 4.3

    Hi, thanks for the reply...I plan on having the donor vehicle side by side, just not sure if the depth of things to change would require extensive swapping of wiring, (I.e. Harness throughout the interior fusebox, and dash wiring- which is something I'd rather not get involved with)

    engine swap 99 gmc sonoma 4.3

    As far as swapping out the modules is concerned, does anybody know as to what extent the wiring harness has to be removed? In one whole piece? (Unplug old and plug in New) ? Or cutting and splicing a lot? (Keep in mind I'd be swapping motor and transmission) Thank you in advance

    Pattern failure for Fire on 1990-2011 town cars???

    Thanks , I will try this on all three different model years (95', 96' and 03') and see if it works. (Just hope that no other circuit runs thru it...I'm fine with no cruise control, though...it hasn't worked on the 95' for some time.)

    Pattern failure for Fire on 1990-2011 town cars???

    Thanks for the reply. I had the dealer install the remedy for the 1995, which consisted of a harness extension. Can I either unplug the cruise control and or pull the fuse as a safety measure? Not sure of the august recall, I was never notified. What model years did this latest recall cover?
