2 Questions....

Discussion in 'The Garage' started by DannyandHeather, Oct 6, 2006.

    My first question is, this is what our truck is, but can someone explain what it means 1988 CHEVROLET V10 BLAZER 5.7L V8 TBI OHV 16V. :confused:

    Thanks

    Second we have automatic locks and windows, on the drivers side you hear the motor, but the window won't roll up. It also can't roll up the passengerside, but it can roll it down.

    Than on the passenger side it will lock the doors, but it can't unlock them. Do any of you know what the problem could be?

    Hope this makes sence
    Thanks a lot!

    In 87 they quit calling the k5's k5's and started calling them v10's. 5.7 is a 350 Throttle Body Injected Over Head Valve (16 Valve) engine. Basically it's a fuel injected 350 version of the k5.


    If the motor is turning but window is not moving it is probably either off track or the regulator is bad. The other problems sound like you need new switches. That's pretty common and Autozone has them in the help section where I live. If not on hand they can order them

    Do you know how we could get to the regulator or would it be better to take it to a machanic?
    Thanks

    Just pull the door panel off and the regulator is what houses the motor and moves the window up and down. Usually the problem is obvious visually when you try and let the window up and down while watching.

    Keep in mind the regulator is spring loaded. If you have to remove the motor, take the whole regulator out and sit it on the ground. when you release the motor from the regulator it will recoil and hurt pretty bad if your hands are in the way. It's not hard. Just be carefull not to get caught by it if you pull the motor.

    1987 Changes
    GM changes name designation on the C/K line of pickups. The previous 4x2 C series is changed to the R series, and the 4x4 K series is changed to the V series. Chevrolet also introduces TBI equipped engines and computer ignition controls (although carburetors were still available in some models). 1987 was also the last year for the "stepside" bed, starting in 1988 GM refers to it as a "sportside". The end of a 15 year run for the rounded line C/K pickups, however, the rounded line body style remained until 1991 on Blazers, Suburbans, and one-ton trucks.

    just a little more info......
