  1. Hey guys, I posted in the giant thread about my fix but I'm sure it's already gotten lost. I think this is important to at least have floating somewhere for someone to search. Symptoms: At 60-70mph I was experiencing a severe shake/vibration. I could usually push out of it at 70+ but it was still noticeable. It was like clock work as soon as I hit up around 60mph. Solution: I got my truck fully inspected before purchase and they noted the vibration. Mechanic showed me a dent in the drive shaft and general wear on the shaft. His recommendation was to replace it. I ordered the part online. The new shaft came fully assembled with new Ujoints and the yoke to slide in. Installation was very easy. I have driven 100 miles since installation and I have ZERO vibration. I hit 60mph and it is very smooth. So the culprit could be the shaft the ujoint or the yoke. Once again this fix worked for me and it may not be the same issue on your truck but I had pretty bad vibrations and they are GONE. Good luck!! *NOTE* I have no warranty so that is why I attempted a fix on my own. I'm sure this problem will still crop up as peoples warranty starts to expire.
  2. I have a 2012 silverado and my check engine light keeps coming off and on. The codes read are c0900- device 1 voltage high(history) c0899- device 1 voltage low(history) p0300- multiple misfire detected (History Mil) p0301- cylinder 1 misfire detected (confirmed) there is a slight rough idle on the truck, and I think that my gas mileage has decreased slightly Does anyone have any idea what my problem could be before I take it to a shop, or start replacing parts
  3. This bracket that holds a 4 plug plate for the rear taillight wiring. it is mounted on the rear of the frame at the last cross member. I cant find it in my drunken stumbles, a part # or where I can buy one would be a huge help

  5. I'm from the mid missouri area, i was raised mostly on chevys but i have a love for all things truck, unfortunately i'm having some huge issues now that i'm back in a GM after being with dodge for a few years lol If i'm in the wrong area posting i'm sorry, please direct me to the correct place. I have a 2012 gmc sierra, i've had it little less than a year. When i bought this truck the previous owner had an "autopage alarm system" installed. not a big fan but thought "if it isnt broke dont fix it". Let's just jump ahead to the problem. periodically when i try to start the truck NOTHING happens for the most part. doesn't try to crank, sometimes the gauges flicker on and off, most of the time it starts throwing warning alarms for needing service on the 4x4, the traction control, a several other things. if you fight with it long enough it will start but once it starts that first time after the issue, my actual gauges don't work at all but if you shut it back off and start it again she will run fine for another few days maybe even a week or so. Now i messed around with a few things myself and just for a lack of time i dropped it off a chevy dealer. they tell me the autopage alarm is the problem, have it put in valet mode and they say that it should be 100% fine for the time being to run that way and thats all thats wrong i need it removed. of course it's not, so i have them remove it entirely. they say drive it for a week and let's see. of course problem still exists. so they say the autopage alarm has fried and taken some innocent bystanders with it. Replaced the BCM, Ignition, a couple relays (don't remember which ones specifically at this moment) re programmed the truck and the full removal of the Autopage alarm included pulling out the splices re soldering the wires and shrink tubing the wires. ( I checked to make sure of that last part) so it runs great for a week then of course i have it fully loaded down and it doesn't start this weekend. read on another forum how the starter getting moisture in it this and that will cause it to not try to start. replaced the starter. Runs great for saturday and sunday. monday morning nothing again. i have combed every wire i can get to cannot find loose wires or bad connections or even dirty connections anywhere. I am at my wits end with this truck. I hate to see it go but i cannot just keep throwing money at it until something works if it ever does. Surely someone has heard of this problem and been down this road to tell me where to look.
  6. Well I just got my truck lifted and I was not used to the width of the new tires. I accidentally scuffed up the sidewall a bit. The entire sidewall is faded brown (probably dirt) but where I scraped it that area is black. It's more of discoloration but it's noticable . I bought some armor all extreme wheel and tire cleaner, and some armor all extreme tire shine. Will this combination fix the discoloration? Or overtime will the scraped area fade like the rest of the tire and disappear.As always all replies are greatly appreciated.
  7. Driving my truck everyday and using my truck for work I some how put light scratches on the taillights from going in and out of the back of the truck very often. I was wondering if there was any way to possibly fix this without replacing the whole unit. The scratches are very light but noticeable. Is there any polishing or buffing compound that could work? As always all replies are greatly appreciated.
  8. Well I recently went off-road with some friends and I sort of bent the front plastic air dam (truck isn't lifted yet)is it possible to bend it back with a heat gun or should I just get a new one or should I just take it off all together. I'm sort of bummed that it happened but I don't know what to do. Will there be any major effects if I take the plastic air dam off in the front ? All replies will be greatly appreciated as always.
  9. Hi new to the forum! I bought a 02 GMC sierra z71 extended cab about 3 yrs ago. I looked the truck over and it was spotless then all of a sudden after this brutal winter we had (from Ohio in the rust belt) little bubbles appeared in the passenger rocker panel just at the very back. I know these trucks are known for rusting in these areas but when I got under the truck not a spec of rust .... I am assuming it's rusting inside out. has anyone else had this issue and what can be done to stop the rust if I cant find the source of it? truck only has 80k on it so would hate to let it just rust away . any advice would be appreciated. Thanks,
  10. Hello Fellow Chevy Truck Drivers, I have had my 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT 4x4 Z71 5.3L V8 since new. Since then I have replaced all tires with new Goodyear Assurance TripleTred tires in September of last year (2012). I also had brake fluid changed and the back drums and pads serviced. Recently, my brakes in the front (sounds like both) squeak when I apply them to come to a stop. Please note though that they start squeaking about halfway in my commute to work which is about 1 hour in length or 42 miles one way. The area I live in his hilly but not too bad. I live in the Piedmont area of NC. I do not tow anything nor do I drive "like I stole it", at least not in a while since I haven't volunteered with a fire dept. since 2003. I thought about just going ahead and changing my brake pads on the front but I am hung on the subject of what brand to use and ceramic or not. Any help or suggestions or ideas about what is going on and what course of action I should take would be greatly helpful. Thanks in advance. Ricky
