  1. Why do I keep thinking the water is not circulating well enough as the engine is working ? There should be enough air flow @ 60 to keep it cool enough. But if the coolant isn’t moving around freely from constriction or blockage it gets hot. Could be water pump, which was replaced, thermostat which was replaced, could the hoses be collapsing from air pockets possibly ? That would mean, there might be room for more coolant into the block while @ rest. Also, coolant diluted enough with water ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So you didn’t notice your vehicle being restricted by your brakes ? Wonder if you’re not getting all your gears ? Are your RPM’s a bit higher than normal while going 60 or so ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You seemed to have replaced anything that’s needs to be replaced. Since you do not have a fan clutch we can eliminate that. Have you inspected coolant circulation with the radiator? Is it possible water pump as you day just isn’t pumping ( impellar) issue ? How about your belt and harmonic balancer pulley tension ? Could it be possible your belt tension just is not driving that water pump to crank ? You would have noticed amp issues from the alternator as well ? The crazy part is, textron pink is where it seemed to originate from ? Weird. Tranny cooler circulating ? I’d start the engine with the radiator cap off and let it warm up until the thermostat opens to view coolant circulation first. Then look at the belt tensioner next, then finally water pump which should be connected to coolant circulation unless you are clogged. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. A/C blower motor

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

  10. 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
  11. 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. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 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
  13. 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
  15. 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
