I only drive in 4x2... almost never use the 4x4. As for the trans, it shifts and works perfect.
Not a bad idea , thanks Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
Just replaced with nickel plated slip yoke - still have the clunk. only when letting off gas at low speed around 20-15 mph. Seems like the 3-2 downshift. If I put the truck in neutral.. it doesn't clunk at all when breaking at low speeds. Also installed new U Joints front and rear. . Any other ideas?
GMC-AT posted a topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I have a 2000 Silverado with 250K. Just got the truck not long ago, so don't know any of the history. Anyway, I was changing all the fluids and wondering if I should change the transmission fluid. The fluid is defiantly brownish red and needs to changed, but I have heard stories of folks messing with this and actually causing problems. Especially when doing a full "flush" ...as for me I was thinking of just dropping the pan and changing that fluid with filter. The trans works / shifts like butter now.. it's perfect. The truck is just a farm truck now, only driven about 3K per year.. no towing or even much high speeds for that matter.
This looks to be the correct part - https://www.amazon.com/APDTY-708613-Driveshaft-1992-2005-01-04-17-004/dp/B00C8E8BH0/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1522285772&vehicle=2000-47-491-96-30-31-6-8-7910--9-2-145--3-0&sr=1-1-catcorr&ymm=2000%3Achevrolet%3Asilverado+1500&keywords=slip+yoke
Both U Joint were replaced about 2K miles ago.. never changed anything. Any other ideas?
GMC-AT replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomHate to say it.. but the 2019 RAM is going to be my next truck. The tech and features blow away GM now.
GMC-AT posted a topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 15002000 Silverado - 4x4, 5.3, Auto When I let off the gas at slow speeds (20mph, etc) I often get the "clunk" that these trucks are famous for. I know it has to go with the slip yoke, and greasing the yoke only seems to last for a little while. My question is - I though I saw a while back where we can purchase a new - improved slip yoke. Can someone post a link to the part? and provide any other important info I may need. thanks!
GMC-AT posted a topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 15002000 Silverado 5.3 1. What trans do I have? I think this is the normal 4160L or something? 2. how many quarts of fluid (approx) if I just drop the pan ( not full flush)
GMC-AT replied to GMC-AT's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Yep..its the seatbelt chime. I put in a dummy buckle...all good now Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
GMC-AT replied to GMC-AT's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Are you sure this is the same ding, ding? This happens immediately when I crank up the truck. If that's the case, I'll just get one of the dummy buckles. As for safty... this is just my farm truck. slow speeds, in and out a lot.. not going to use the seat belt
GMC-AT posted a topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 15002000 Silverado - When I crank up, the truck will make the ding, ding sound about 5 times. Anyway to shut this off so it doesn't do it? Is there a fuse I can remove?
GMC-AT replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomThen you better love your current truck... because all makes will have it mandatory moving forward. But I agree..it sucks. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
