  1. 2000 Silverado 2500 6.0 AC Issues

    Fair enough. I'll probably grab some of that stop leak and see what happens
  2. 2000 Silverado 2500 6.0 AC Issues

    I bought the cold AC brand that also has the leak stopper in it as well.
  3. As the title states I have a 2000 Silverado 2500 6.0 with some AC issues. Back in march I put a new compressor, orifice tube filter, and accumulator in. About a 3 weeks ago the air hasn't been as cold as before, it's been cool but not cold. The AC compressor has been kicking off and on like clock work. I thought maybe the high pressure switch on the accumulator was bad so I replaced it and same thing. So I bought the refrigerant in a can yesterday and hooked it up and the PSI on the guage read about 35 PSI. So I put it up to about 40 PSI and and instantly got colder. Now today after getting home from work the air is back to being just "cool", so I just hooked the guage back up and while the clutch is engaged I can watch the PSI needle steadily drop to about 25PSI, then the clutch disengages and then I can steadily watch the PSI climb to about 55-60PSI then the clutch engages again and the PSI drops again, and this pattern just continues. Also the compressor is engaging and disengaging even the the AC button in the truck if off and just the regular air is on. Any tips on what to do next? No I haven't added any dye yet to see if it's leaking anywhere either. Trying to make that a last resort

  5. My 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

    Alright on my 2000 Silverado 6.0 LQ4 I bought speed engineering long tubes and x pipe. I know it will be stupid loud basically straight piped, I do have some 3" glass packs I could use but I have a feeling those will barely cut down the loudness at all. Other than high flow cats which I don't want to put on unless I absolutely have to, would a muffler help cut down on the some sound and mainly cut down on any rasp and keep it somewhat decent in the truck. I really liked how it sounded with stock exhaust minus the muffler. Not sure what I should do

    Bought a set of Mastercraft AXT 265/70/16 and some new exhaust for the truck
  7. What do you race

    2001 Camaro V6. I've done pretty well with it over the years
  8. Fast Blinker - 2000 Silverado

    A bulb is bad somewhere. I used LEDs and a different flasher for mine
  9. 1999-2001 chevy silverado

    I got a 2000 2500 6.0. It like the gas but doesn't have any problems towing. I'd get a 5.3 or 6.0
  10. Hard Starts in the cold weather

    Its all good, no worries
  11. Hard Starts in the cold weather

    he already told me that he is going to check all that stuff only bad thing is he can only check 1 or 2 things while my truck won't start, once it starts, it usually doesn't have a problem. Engine coolant temp sensor I'm assuming?
  12. Hard Starts in the cold weather

    No as in not starting at all. I don't have a direct injector engine either
  13. Hard Starts in the cold weather

    Ahh fair enough. I only use 87. i did put some of the lucas injector cleaner in the tank about 3-4 days before all this happened but I don't think that should affect it any, I've been using it for quite a while
  14. Hard Starts in the cold weather

    usually anything in the single digits into the - temps. No flex fuel around here. It did start up every time today and it was around 7-11* outside all day
  15. As the title states I have a 2000 Silverado 2500 6.0 that is having a hard time starting in cold weather. Fuel pressure regulator is good, fuel pump had the correct PSI at key on, starting and running. Sometimes the truck will crank and crank with no fire, turn the key off then try again and same results. After it does start and idle for a couple minutes, most times it has no problem starting up again. My buddy is checking it out with a tech II at the Chevrolet dealership which it only acts up once or twice a day, so it is kind of a longer process. We are going to be putting in plug and wires, since the wires are about fried and new plugs just cause I don't know how long they have been in there. It's never acted up one time with a misfire, but can't hurt to put new acdelco ones in. Even though the fuel pump is fine, we are going to be putting a new Acdelco one in since who knows how old the one in there is. Any ideas or suggestions? I'm pretty sure we can rule out fuel since there is the appropriate fuel pressure at the rail. I'm not sure if maybe a sensor could be causing thos headache or what could be going on
