No F-bdy Bs posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500I have a 2LT trim 2006. They came with factory 20in wheels, and torsion bar frong end. Finding shocks has always been a pita, as 99% of the 2wd trucks from that era were coil spring. Every online shock store never has a seperate listing for the Tbar 2wd trucks.
No F-bdy Bs replied to No F-bdy Bs's topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500I think y'all may be on to something. When it starts blowing vent air, the comp is not on. I barely nudged the fron of thr comp, and it kicked back on. Going to try removing the washer when I get home. Is that the best fix, or should I just get a new clutch unit?
No F-bdy Bs posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 15002006 with the LT2 package. As said,, This issue is intermittent. I can crank up, and Ac blows cold for about 10min,then,it starts blowing outside air. I can turn the truck off, immediately restart it, and the AC will work fine..... for another 10min. Another curveball, sometimes, it doesn't cut out at all. Compressor is cycling,not leaking, freon level is fine, cold line is 64deg,hot line is 115deg. Belt isn't slipping. I replaced the resistor under the kick panel a few yrs ago, when the fan speed started acting up. Also, my truck has the "climate control" system. I havd done every variation of "reset" I have seen. Pull fuse, wait xx minutes, crank, replace fuse, wait, let system cycle, turn this side all the way hot, that side all the way cold, ect. Nothing has worked. It's almost summer in Louisiana.

This is in regards to Silverados, and Sierras What year/s had the best of the 6.0s and 6.2? I'm specifically in search of a 05'-13' with those engine options. I realize that spans 2 generations, and I'm Ok with that. But, finding one with under 75k miles will be a chore, so it will most likely be an 07'+ I know the 05,06s had the 6.0,and I THINK that carried over into the newer gen for 07' What I'm unsure of, is when the 6.2 started, and which is the most desirable in terms of reliability, and NOT having Afm, Dod/cyl deactivation. What year model do I want to search for? What year did the 6.2 start? What year is the most simple?
No F-bdy Bs posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500Specifically, the 6.2/6L80 combo. 6.2 is a must, as it does not have the DoD/Afm/ cyl deactivation shenanigans. Pretty basic Gm Ls engine. I have owned 2 of the previous Gens, with the 5.3,and they were absurdly reliable, cheap to fix when something did go wrong, and easy to wrench on. Pushing 200,000mi on both, and only super minor issues. Door latches, tail gate latch, ect. I keep my vehicles around 15yrs/200k miles. Obviously, I'd be buying used. The complexity of a new truck is beyond what I'm comfortable with, also, the $45,000+ price is somethig I COULD afford, but CHOOSE not to. Right now, im seeing 2010ish qc, 4wd,6.2 trucks with under 50k miles for around $22,000 They are not common, but are available, and I'm willing to travel and wait.
No F-bdy Bs posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500I know the issue,,, A/C got out of calibration when I changed the battery. I can drive for say, 15min,with the Ac on, and it will start blowing vent air. I can cycle the key, and it will temporarily fix the issue. I tried a few procedures I saw on YT, where you pull the 10a hvac fuse, wait 3min,replace the fuse, and not touch the Ac controls while it cycles. Did a few variations of this procedure, with no luch. Any GM techs here have the official procedure?
No F-bdy Bs replied to No F-bdy Bs's topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500That's the thing, For the price of just 1hr of dealer labor, I could replace just about anything it possibly could be. Dealers priced themselves out of my business a long time ago. Basically, if it's not a warranty issue, the dealer dosent touch my vehicles.

Generally, I'll start driving, and after a time, the Ac will cease blowing cold air, and start blowing vent. Compressor is cycling,not leaking, freon level is fine, cold line is 64deg,hot line is 115deg. Belt isn't slipping. I replaced the resistor under the kick panel a few yrs ago, when the fan speed started acting up. Also, my truck has the "climate control" system. Thinking the hvac control panel itself may be bad?
No F-bdy Bs replied to trx680's topic in 2015-2019 Silverado & Sierra HDY'all are on CRACK for even thinking about rear end fluid changes at anything less than 100k miles. 10k and you dumped it? Complete waste of time, $ and perfectly good fluid. Change engine oil and filter every 5k. Maybe less if you're running it REAL hard. Transmission/xfer case every 40,000. Rear and front ends every 100k. Ps fluid every 50k,if you're really bored, and super OCD. This is a super low wear, low heat area with huge tolerances. Dont overthink it. Use good fluid, but dont get crazy with ultra exotic, hard to find, and $$$ bullshit. You dont need synthetic engine oil. I swear, sometimes this place reminds me of the Diesel forums, where a 21yr old thinks he is the first person to Hot Rod anything, and has all kinds of inside info that no one else has figured out yet.
No F-bdy Bs replied to No F-bdy Bs's topic in 2015-2019 Silverado & Sierra HDPrime reason I want to get in in a 6.0 before the government "Improves" it. I honestly think 20yrs from now, people will look back at the 6.0 trucks as "should have bought/kept that one, could still be driving it today"
