Hello all, glad to be a part of your forums. My first truck was a 2004 Silverado SS Onyx Black. Since then I've had a few cars/suv's in between but I'm sooo glad to be back in a Chevy truck.
Last weekend I picked up a used 2014 Silverado LT 5.3L V8 from the local Chevy dealership in Enid, Oklahoma. Shortly after this picture was taken I added a Reflex spray in liner, tinted the front windows to match the back 20%, installed a leveling kit, and added a stubby antenna. At first I wasn't sure whether to go with Black or Chrome accents but lately I'm leaning towards chrome. I recently found a Undercover FLEX bed cover and Chrome running boards that I hope to have within the next week. After that I want to find neoprene seat covers (gray?) and chrome door handles with matching mirrors.
Brownstone is a unique color that not everyone can rock but if done right it's hard to beat!
Hello, I looked 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 that I was interested in purchasing with the 5.3L V8 has 174,000 miles. Truck runs rough at idle, rpms are fluctuating. Check engine light is on with codes P0300 and P0301. Can’t troubleshoot the problem. Coils, spark plugs, spark plug wires, new O2 sensors, new catalytic converters. Guy says that rockers all move so it isn’t Active Fuel Management lifters and he says 150 psi of compression across all 8 cylinders. Truck was at dealership, dealership says problem with cylinder numbers 1 and 8 the P0301 explains problem with cylinder 1 but why isn’t code P0308 being thrown? What else could be the problem?
I’ve been having issues starting my 2007 Silverado 1500 and was hoping someone could give me an idea what the problem is.
- Engine struggles to turn over for 3-5 seconds before finally turning over.
- If I turn the key to the “On” position before starting it, wait 3-5 seconds THEN start the truck it turns over immediately.
- I can hear the fuel pump kick on when I set the key to the “On” position.
- Battery was replaced but the issue remains.
- Truck will start right away if it’s been sitting for less than an hour.
- Temperature shouldn’t be an issue (30-40 degrees in the morning).
- Here’s the kicker: If I use the remote start it turns over no problem.
Any help/input would be appreciated. Thank you.
Just got mine! 2018 GMC Sierra. Laura’s GMC. Fly from Columbus, OH to St. Louis and drove her home. Saved a bunch of money and got more bells and whistles (not sure if that’s a good thing). So I am curious to see others of this style and color.
I am about to purchase a new vehicle and am considering a 2014-2016 silverado 1500. Im wondering if anyone here has any of these years that has put a lot of kms on it. I wondering how reliable they are and what problems if any you have ran into with them. The reason I'm asking is because I purchased a subscription to Consumer Reports and Reliability was only a 2/5 and overall satisfaction was a 3/5.
I just paid off a 2011 F150 a year ago and now it has a stretched timing chain @ 140k. I really don't want to buy a piece of shit again.
Also, the dealership gave me a 2014 1500 to try out for a few days and i really loved the truck except for one thing. In comparison to my F150 it was an extremely rough ride. It seems like every dam bump on the highway was pretty jarring. Even my lady friend noticed it clearly and she doesn't give a shit about anything when it comes to vehicles. I've heard gm/chevy ride a little stiffer but this seemed pretty bad. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
