  • How to change the alternator

    Hopefully you know how to pull a rim off the hub. Here is the starting point for changing out the alternator.




    I think its a T-60 to get the bolts off the brakes. You need to pull the brakes off to have enough room.




    These are what the 2 bolts look like holding the front brakes o*n




    And the rotor with it.




    Get the brake out of the way. You can pull it completely but then you have to bleed the brakes.




    This is the shield you need to remove in order to get at the alt. I dont recall the bolt sizes but 8mm sounds right.




    Same shield.




    With the shield gone, you can see the CV joint as well as the shield o*n the auto tranny (manual is different)




    I think is trying to show the bolts to get the shield off the tranny.




    Probably just a better picture of those bolts.




    Lifting up on the control arm some. You will have to remove the axle. This is a LOT easier than pulling a CV joint or whatever other instructions say to do.




    4 15mm bolts hold the hub in o*n the back side. You can pull the axle right through there.




    Getting at the bolts holding the CV joint shield.




    Same shield, different pic.




    Pulling the axle out. You can use a small prybar or a screw driver. It will pop out with a little force. Its pretty simple o*nce you get an angle o*n it.




    The axle out of the car.




    Here you can see the alternator. We already removed the accessories belt and there is a wrench o*n the bolt showing you where its at.




    I had to take a picture of this. This is how you get to the bolt at the top of the alternator.




    This bolt is a lot of fun!




    Better picture of what you are trying to get at.




    And now from underneath the car. I will say that it was impossible to take a picture of the bracket o*n the backside of the alternator. I will have to find a diagram in o*ne of my books to stick between this picture and the next.




    And there it is off the engine.




    And im sure this is what everyone does once its out of the car.

  • LQ1 Service Bulletin 57-61-09 Lifter tick (cold)
    by Schurkey
    Dug up the GM Service Bulletin for "Lifter tick when cold", 57-61-09. '91 to '95 LQ1 (VIN X)

    http://mymonte.com/discussion/topic/...e-%2357-61-09/ The parts kit has been discontinued by GM long ago. My quest was to find sources for those parts; and complete the procedure on my '93 Lumina Euro 3.4 which was torn apart to replace the rear head gasket. There are three critical part numbers in the GM service kit (aside from gaskets and O-rings) required t...

  • 3.4 DOHC Heads on a 3x00 Block
    by bszopi
    Several people have talked about the possibility to use the 3.4 DOHC heads on the 3x00 engines. Some for performance, and some for replacment, where getting a 3.4 DOHC block might be difficult, but getting a 3400 (or even a 3100) block might be easier to come by. For these test fittings, I used a 1994 3.4 DOHC BLOCK, a 1994 3.4 DOHC REAR head, a 1999 3100 SFI BLOCK, and a 1996 3100 SFI head. This article is broken into 3 sections. The first section is BASIC COMPARISONS where I compare the BLOCK o...

  • OBD2 Tuning 3.4 DOHC
    by Dave96z34
    The 97 4T65 in the Monte Carlo is almost bullet proof. I have been beating the crap out of my reman with my blower now for 2.5 years of daily driving vs the 60 NA that I couldn't get 1 year out of. 4 Trans in 50K miles. I'm a violent offender. Overfilling and royal purple atf are my secret. DHP will do 96 and 97 DOHC tuning, HPTuners only works with the 97 computer. 96 can not change line pressure, 97 can. 97 bin is double in size of the 96 bin. They changed every thing and it has every ...

  • 3.4 DOHC Pistons
    by SappySE107
    Here is the TRW catalogue spec sheet for the 91-95 as well as the 96/97 pistons.

    TRW 3.4 DOHC Pistons
    Silvolite 3.4 DOHC Pistons Notice that the 96-97 pistons don't have as much compression distance but also have a dome to them. I dont know the exact amount of compression loss you will get when using these pistons with the 91-95 heads, but it goes against the common belief that 96 pistons raise compression. The Silvolite pistons are the EXACT pistons used in the 91-
