Mikebtte replied to soulweeper's topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500I have changed my tires to E rated and noticed no difference in daily driving. E rated tows better than passanger tires and make me feel better. No MPG different for me.
I would for sure check the fluid, locking up could always get worse if not seenough too. I would thinking getting the rear end off the ground and spinning by hand would be a good start. I made a video when I serviced my 08 with a G80. Not sure if it will aid any, but it's a good start.
That is interesting, what are some details on the truck, year, model ext. Have you pulled the diff cover and checked the rear end, listen to it and check it out. Does it have a G80 rear diff?
Mikebtte replied to RyanbabZ71's topic in Off-TopicSwapped out the chip on my 283 TBI set up for what I believe to be the correct chip. So far, so good.Additionally, I got my condenser from Vintage Air. Not thrilled. To be honest I would think it would be of better quality. I have gotten condenser's from Napa with cleaner looking fins and better packaging.
You say it would not start. Would the engine crank or was the power completely gone? Did your radio and all the still work? Just wanting to know if this is a no crank or a no start issue. I am assuming it is cranking but not starting. Check for spark and fuel both. While it is coil over you could be loosing power some place as well as not getting fuel pressure.
As mentioned, the truck conditions very by the PO. On a 13 your looking at a good truck. Take it for a drive and feel it out. 13 has most of its issues worked out, AFM was not as big and issue. Mine is an 08 but I have had no issues with AFM. I turned it on not to long back for a long road trip, no issue. It's back off now. 150k and still running good. Mine has a broken exhaust manifold bolt but that's to be fixed later, currently not affecting anything. Good luck on your shopping
You need all the front end parts on them trucks, they just ware out. Common issue, ball joints, pitman arm, tie rods and anything else. No kits that I know if, rock auto has all to parts in moog problem solver or your local auto parts store. Often times the steering box has Plat as well and would benifit from and overhaul. Post some pictures of that bad boy as well.
IMHO I would run a synthetic or blended oil. As much as I love DINO oil, the prof is out that synthetic is better. You can get 5 QT on Amazon for 20-30 bucks and you can run it for 6 months or 6000 miles most of the time. Depends on what you use the truck for, Towing, hwy. Its hard to beat oil changes 2 times a year. I found I like to waste money and change it every 3K. Just my 2 cents. I'm a little biased on oil.
