GM Gen III & IV
JASPER remanufactured GM Gen III and IV family of engines are built to meet or exceed OEM measured standards and have a 3 year/100,000 mile nationwide, transferable parts and labor warranty. Click here for complete warranty information. Remember, these are completely remanufactured gas engines assembled to exacting tolerances and live-run tested for reliability.
The Gen III and IV family of engines used extensively in such popular applications as the C/K Series pick-up trucks, Tahoes, Suburbans and Yukons.
The Gen III and IV family of engines is susceptible to issues that include: oil consumption; valve guide wear, lifter noise (Gen IV applications); as well as cracked cylinder heads with resulting coolant loss. JASPER has addressed these issues to improve the reliability of this family of engines.
JASPER remanufacturing advantages include:
- Cylinder heads are 100% pressure tested and torqued under an additional load to identify cracks at the center head bolt bosses (damaged heads are discarded).
- JASPER-designed pistons offer profiled ring lands for scuff resistance under load, increased strength to withstand higher combustion pressures and improved stability to reduce blow-by.
- 100% use of graphite-coated pistons prevent scuffing and wear, and by using tighter piston-to-bore clearance JASPER prevents “cold piston slap” and oil consumption.
- JASPER-designed pistons also provide 4X more oil drain back to prevent the rings from sticking.
- Cylinder bores are honed with a steel torque plate that is torqued with Grade 10 ARP bolts to simulate cylinder bore distortion, which occurs after head assembly, ensuring correct bore roundness for improved ring sealing.
- 100% installation of an oil pressure relief valve on all 2007 and later applications to redirect oil to the pan (standard from O.E. on 2011 and later applications).
- 100% NEW installation of nitrided valves to prevent valve guide wear and oil consumption by improving durability and reducing friction.
- Latest-design Active Fuel Management (AFM) lifters are installed to increase oil flow during start-up and to reduce lifter noise (2005 - present).
- JASPER-remanufactured oil pump includes a more rigid spring, tighter clearance for backing plate flatness and is tested for increased oil pressure and flow.
- Oil pump, oil pan, timing cover and rear cover are installed and NEW exhaust manifold bolts are included.
- 100% Live-Run Testing, for your assurance of reliability, includes:
- Compression, vacuum and oil pressure testing
- VVT cam phaser testing and/or AFM solenoid testing where applicable
- Black Light testing for leaks
