Electrical injectors are somewhat self cleaning, in that any deposits get removed when the core moves as it fires. But there usually is no way to really clean injectors. Chemicals are not strong enough, and there is not way to get anything mechanic inside where is counts.
But you can tell how they are working, simply by removing them from the manifold, while still attached to the fuel lines.
(Careful not to cause a fire.)
Just crank the engine to see the shape of the spray.
It they are all the same conical shape spray, than they are all fine.
If one dribbles, is less, or shoots a sold stream, it is bad.

only thing i can suggest is while the engine is cold have someone run up the rpms and spray carb cleaner around the vacuum lines and anywhere else you think there could be leak. if a leak is present the engine will **** up the carb cleaner and bog down. BE SURE TO DO THIS WITH THE ENGINE COLD CARB CLEANER IS FLAMMABLE.

NO, but if the gage is not working if you were to have a problem with the oiling system you would mot know until it was to late, but a non-working gage will hot hurt any thing.

On GM cars and trucks this is a common problem and is caused by a defective oil pressure sending unit. To replace the sending unit remove the engine dog house cover in the passenger compartment, the oil pressure sending unit is at the back top of the engine

60psi cold / 30-45psi warm is ideal. I've seen (with that mileage) 45 cold/ 20 warm and that's acceptable - anything less start thinking about a new oil pump.

Under the hood behind the headlight assembly. Twist and pull the bulb out.

Force that black appliance off of the 2 'snaps' on the opposite side of the bolts that hold it down.then take a wide blade cold chisel, put it up against the edge of the appliance where the snaps are holding it in place, and tap with a hammer away from the body of the van. It will pop right off with a little persuasion and won't t break it in the process. Once it's off you have one more nut to remove on the tail light to get to the bulb. When you're done, you just line up the pegs and push the appliance back on, then finish up with the nuts and you're done. Hope this helps

Hi, there are only three ways to find a solution to this problem. It maybe that the bulb socket needs cleaning to remove corrosion on inside, the bulb socket has loose wires or missing terminal or finally you have a bad fuse. You have to check these three problems out one after the other to isolate the cause of the problem...

check your wheel speed sensor to make sure it is operating correctly if it is bad it will send signals to tranny making late shift and causing hard shift

Please make sure you gapped the plugs to specifications. ( probably 35 thou' of an inch ) gap gages are very inexpensive. Also suspect the spark plug wires, check teher integrety as well the correct firing order. To check for short, in the dark watch for arching to ground ( visually ).

Hope that helps.

1. Press and hold presets 2 and 3 for about 5 to 10 seconds until you
get 3 digits on your display. This is the first 3 of 6 digits you will
need, so write 'em down.
2. After doing step one and writing down the code, immediately press
AM/FM button to get the last 3 of the 6 numbers you'll need, and write
'em down. (if you wait too long between steps 1 and 2 and the LOC code
displays again, just start over).
3. Call this number, it's a prerecorded message, so don't worry about
having to talk to anyone...1-800-537-5140. The voice will ask if
calling for Chevy, Pontiac, Cadillac, etc... When you here him tell
to press "2" for Pontiac, press 206010 and hit the # key. He'll ask
for the 6 digit code that you've written down. Enter that and press
* key. He will then give you a code, and the option to get additional
digit codes, but one should be sufficient.
4. Follow the normal procedure in your owners manual for unlocking the
radio with your new code...press the hour set button on your radio
you get the first two numbers of the code, then press the minute set
button until you've entered the last two numbers. Immediately press
AM/FM button once the correct code is entered and the code SEC or
"secured" will be displayed on the display screen. Now, just turn the
radio on, and your ready to roll.
There is an additional step you can take to remove all codes from the
radio and start from scratch by entering your own personalized 4 digit
code so that it won't get you in a pickle again! Just repeat step 4
you should get a display screen that reads ---. This means the code is
out, and you can now program your own code. Of course, once you
the 4 digit code from the GM recorded message, just keep it in a safe
place, because you can use that same code again and again should you
have any more problems with it in the future. Good luck, and yes, it
does work.
