Gone Again replied to onecrazyfoo4u's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Go to Amsoil website. Put in your vehicle info and product choices are listed along with capacities.
There are a number of things that can cause/make this worse. The clamping action on some tire changers is one. Most machines have protective boots to prevent this but many shops don't take the time to use them. Another possibility is where the inside wheel weight clips to the rim. The attaching/removal of the weights chip the chrome slightly and corrosion starts. All this adds to your problem. Road salt accelerates the process. Once you have the rim cleaned as best you can, they do make a rim sealer that works pretty well. It has the consistency of thick black paint. It should be applied either to the rim or tire bead before tire mounting. Any place that does tire work should have some. Hope this helps.

Gone Again replied to crdroste's question in Ask the GM TechnicianCheck all your u-joints. You should remove driveshafts to do this properly if nothing obviously is found.
Gone Again replied to FWGuy's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Believe it or not your issue could be caused by a brake fluid level too low in the reservoir. Going around a corner, rough roads or faster than normal stops can cause the fluid level to shift and trigger the low level indicator to turn on both lights. Have had this happen in past so take a look if you haven't already.
Gone Again replied to Mossyoakglock's question in Ask the GM TechnicianMight want to consider this from past forum. My 2010 had this very issue and a recalibration of the ECM by dealer corrected the problem. Even though you have a 4.8, I would still consider this.
Gone Again replied to CapitalTruck's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Use the impact wrench with short bursts. Each time you hit the trigger the nut will tighten slightly before rotating the shaft. Works best if you turn air on impact wrench to max.
