Problems changing engines


Asked by Sep 03, 2016 at 05:33 PM about the 1995 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Extended Cab SB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My husband just put a 1990 engine with an rv cam
into his 1995 silverado. The problem is, it idles so
poorly it stalls backing out of the driveway. I said it
might be a computer issue, any body run into this?

1 Answer


That's the problem with changing the cams on computer controlled engines, the only way that I have seen this get worked around is to get a re-programmer and reconfigure the ECM to handle the cam.
