Is that easy to remove, or do I need to pull the intake manifold? I'm trying to not get really involved in this, since I'm trying to use it as my commuter (yes I hate the geo tracker that my wife bought years ago).
The tracker is the only car to give me back pain, cuz my butt is bigger than the middle of the seat, only its not large enough to bridge across, so I end up with my back twisted which hurts like a mother after any bumps in the road.
The 6.2 rides nice (PO replaced all of the front end suspension), and actually has a better ride than the tracker. Add in the fact that I've had two accidents in the tracker (t on drivers side, and snow spin into a guardrail) I'm sick of spending more than the value of the vehicle to fix it.
A Tracker can't pull out a Blazer but it can climb a hill better. It's all about the point where the hill plateaus and then climbs again. Those Samurais eat the **** out of them. Also nice to have a truck you can flip back over if it does tip. If I didn't want people to laugh at me I'd think about combing my hair in the morning and I probably wouldn't wear my father in laws glasses that he stopped wearing in 1984.
Woops I posted it twice. Went back to edit and it wasn't there. I guess it was
That's it. It's like my old Mazda B2200. everyone laughs at it but it drives between the ruts the big trucks leave behind, and doesn't sink in the mud and in the Mazdas case could still carry close to a ton on a highway passing other vehicles and gas staions. Actually loaded the Mazda had terrible mileage and empty it got about what the 6.2 gets, 6.2 has more room for stuff tho.
mine pulled a moose out where a quad of those days couldn't go. it spun a bearing on me, and i rebuilt it in my basement. carried it out and installed by hand, lol. damn thing ran on a sewing machine motor lol
I just purchased a 1987 Chevy p30, 6.2 diesel. Starts and runs, but at idle, the rpm go steady up and down. I’ve never owned a diesel before, what things can I check without specialty tools? Thank you!
hi, so i have a chance to get an 86 chevy k30 single wheel with a 6.2 detroit in it. it was a registered military vehicle. i was wondering if it would be worth the 3500 for it, idk much about those engines and i also have a 30 minute commute to work through the mountains every day. can y’all...
I have a 6.2 out of a 1989 m998 and I am using to go in my 93 3500 single cab single wheel truck that has a 6.5 turbo diesel in it but I had something go thru my oil pan and I haven’t even taken out of my truck yet. I thought there might be to much damage in my 6.5 so I was going to use this...

First a preface... I've been an auto mechanic for over 32 years so I have a clue...
