  1. One other thing I noticed while the rear of the truck was in the air. When the truck was running and the rear in the air, the back passenger wheel was spinning much faster than the drivers side wheel. Does this mean the passenger wheel brake adjustment needs to be adjusted? Or is that adjustment star only for the parking brake?
  2. Took the truck for inspection and their computer read out says I have no passenger rear brake. I had the truck up on jacks the other day and used brakes, wheels did stop turning. Also bled brakes because I replace a caliper and bleeding brakes at this wheel was fine too. What could this problem be?
  3. I broke some type of vacuum line while flushing my radiator. Now Im trying to ID the line assembly so I can replace it. I have included a pic. The line had a 90 with a locking device built into the 90. The line was made of hard plastic. The line connects to a rail on the engine and a box near the radiator "where I put the white arrow". There is also a service port on the line with a green cap.
  4. My C3500 starts fine in the morning. I drive the truck to a location and shut it off. When I come back to start the truck again, it's very hard to start, taking about 5-10 minutes of cranking the engine over to get it to start. It sounds like it wants to start at some points but it just fizzles out, then all of the sudden the truck just starts. For the rest of the day the truck doesn't give me any issues at all, the truck starts right up. I know this is an odd scenario but Does anyone know what this problem might be? The truck only gives me a starting issue on the second time it's started during the day.
  5. So he also says the oil pressure is read at many different points on this engine. He ruled out sludge, there's no bearing noise, and he also says 10lbs pressure at the pump on this truck is ok. He says he would replace all the lifters but no guarantee.
  6. Not sure what you mean "reman motor, it won't come back, oil pump, maybe? I have owned the truck for about 4 or 5 years. I don't put but maybe 4-5k miles a year maximum, if even that. I always change oil at 3k miles at jiffy lubes but I don't know if their oil is quality . When I check the oil on the dipstick, even at 2500 miles in, it's pretty clean on the dipstick.
  7. Here's my problem. The mechanic that looked at it said to replace the oil pump, the engine would have to be "pulled" and there was no guarantee that replacing the oil pump would correct the low pressure issue or the valve tap. He also said that replacing the oil pump would cost just about as much as a re built engine, around 8k. I really trusted this mechanic but I'm really scratching my head at his decision making process. I know the oil pump is an 8 hour job. Is that even close to 8k? This truck has run perfect for me until this valve tap. I can't believe this motor is trash. The only thing I ever noticed with this truck was a weird starting issue that happend 2 or 3 times, over a 2 year period. It sounded like a back fire inside the engine.
  8. Yes, i drive the truck for 15 - 20 minutes. When I parked it and sat at idle for about 3 minutes, thats when the check gauges light came on. Oil was changed after that and still low pressure. No contaminants in oil.
  9. I have a 1999 c3500 454. The intake gasket started to leak a bit. Btw this is the second intake gasket i have put on this truck since I owned it. I think I might have put 15k miles on the truck before this one went. So I have been topping the radiator off every once in a while until I could get the truck into the shop for a new intake gasket. Since then the truck developed an intermittent valve tap. When the check engine light came on i stopped running the truck. Just started the truck today and after idle for a 15 minutes the check gauge light came on and the oil pressure was really low, about 10 pounds. What's going on here?
  10. Ok but it's like I said. The rotor and hub are one piece. The do no come apart. Which is the reason I'm having a hard time finding any help on the net. Most people don't have this set up.
  11. I'm looking for a manual that will guide me through the process of removing and replacing my brake hub/rotor. I have a 1999 Chevy 2wd C3500 Dually crew cab with the big block gas motor.. The rotors and hub are one piece, im trying to figure out how to remove them from the shaft. Picture of hub below.
  12. I have a 1999 Chevy C3500 Crew cab dually. I am going to replace the rotors which are a one piece hub and rotor combo? I need to know the socket size for the hub nut and the torque settings for putting the nut back on. Thank you
  13. The pump shuts off after about a second when the ignition key is in the on position. But you can still hear that pump whining in the video right? Any suggestions on a replacement pump? Factory or aftermarket?
