  1. It might have a neutral safety switch which cuts off the engine upon big impact in order to avoid an explosion. Check to see fuel is pumping and you have spark. I have heard of Ford’s having this and am thinking it’s a across the board safety item for all vehicles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 2005 Silverado oil pressure problems

    Have you checked the accuracy of your gauges ? Are your oil returns / oil pick ups sludged up ? Is your oil pump working well ? I remember years ago, in the GM 231 engines they had an external spring that assisted the oil pump. The spring would fatique you had oil pressure loss and lifters rapping. 2 bolt switch out on the side of the pan fix. So pumps do lose their ability to pump. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Grinding noise when accelerating past 60 mph

    I’m with a ujoint. In time it will get a bit worse at lower speeds. Outside chance the pumpkin [emoji316] because you heard a clunk and GM is known to have some clunks in the rear end. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. A/C blower motor

    Sounds like a bad switch relay being you replaced everything else. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. I just replaced my dashboard 4WD selector switch. I read how they have given issues. This didn’t cure my issues but it doesn’t hurt. Mine says service 4WD. I’ve had rats [emoji232] inside so we are thinking ate up wires somewhere now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hey y’all My big red that I use to fill my feeders @ my camp had an interesting situation happen. First, I thought I had a hung up caliper and had some burn/heat coming from the left rear wheel. Seemed to loosen up as I felt the wheels were free ? Next thing a bit later on and possibly totally unrelated, my big square info center light on the dash says service 4WD. All the 4WD lights to switch from 2WD to 4 low, 4 high or auto 4 WD went blank. I got to thinking maybe I had a leak ? Truck was still driving well. Did not try to drop it in 4WD after that, and dumped it off to a local mechanic to get diagnosed. I’m not sure if it’s a sensor and a hung caliper or something strictly 4WD. He’s afraid he doesn’t have the equipment diagnose it so I’m thinking send it to the Chevy dealer. Anyone have this service 4WD light come on and what did you find wrong ? Any help is appreciated.

  9. Auto 4WD works, Fulltime 4WD doesn't

    I had a simile issue with my buggy truck, 2002 Z71 Avalanche. It was a sensor on the axle not working properly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Service 4wd light

    When it was serviced, it might need its codes cleared, or maybe it’s not put together right and sensors are indicating an issue. Get it looked @ ASAP Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Trust me, you won’t be regretting the move to Mastercraft. Goodrich is what a Tahoe came with from the factory. They wear like sheeeeeeet , worse than Michelin. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I used a Rough Country kit on my Grand Cherokee Limited that I use on my hunting camp. 4 inch came with shocks in the kit and I use mine off road exclusively with zero issue ! Kit was $300 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. 2005 Tahoe Z71

    Hey y’all Haven’t posted much, but I lurk often. I’m a long time car dealer and Tahoe K5 owner. Over the years, towing my Stratos bass boat I tried all sorts of tires, expensive ones too ! I bought this current Tahoe about 6 years ago with only 26K on it. Needing tires, my brother, also a car dealer, tells me to put Mastercraft Coursier MSR tires on it. I mainly use this truck to get to my hunt camp, a 2 hour drive with plenty off the grid driving of muddy Everglades type. The MSR did awesome and won me over as the best tire I’ve used on a Tahoe. Wore that set off and went back to Mastercraft and bought a little extra off trail tread, I think XT ? They too were bulletproof! Now I have 110k on her and just went back to the MSR again. I was against the MSR because they are studdable which I don’t need. But they ride so well in this rain. Yesterday we were under a Tropical Depression once again and it rained all day. Camp was flooded. I just put the new treads on Friday and the had 120 miles on them, lol. Didn’t spin a tire, never used 4x4 and they held the road all the way home @ 65-75 mph with plenty of road puddles and never lifted a hydro at all. They are a little known tire, but if you’re not happy with the array of Michellins, GoodYears or Goodrich, I really recommend you try these on your full size GM suv [emoji592]/pick up truck.

  15. My 2002 starts like a champ. I just replaced my starter but it still caught when it cranked. I'd say it might be fuel injection pressure or spark related to air flow sensor. The air mass flow sensor might be off when it warms and is mixing air and gas too lean and causing ignition delays ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
