91 Corvette - Service Engine lights, Speedometer goes (usually) to 0, Average miles per gal goes to 5Y5, engine stops. Engine cranks but will not start. Wait a bit, remove key, insert key and it will usually start. only code is 12 which is normal. (Speedometer sometimes goes to 108 or 17 instead of 0 - while sitting and Idleing) Can sometimes get out of engine stopping by flooring it - must be driving to do this.

Is it possible to change the miles on a 1992 GMC Sierra (1500)? I just switched out the v6 with a new 305 and for personal preference I wouldn't mind setting the miles back to 0. Not selling the truck, I mean I could always write down it's current miles to know how many miles are on the engine but it would be nice to set to 0 since its a new engine.


No if you want one with 0 miles you will have to get a new one ... 1992 GMC Sierra

The alternator on our GMC Vandura with a V8 350 engine 5.7L locked and caught on fire. It messed up the plug in the back and by messed up I mean it was completely melted away.

Have a 2000 gmc safari van 4.3, the distributor gears were worn, replaced the gear on the shaft, went to reinstall distributor now engine will not crank over.
