  1. So I have a 17 model 2500 that’s giving some trouble. It’s at the end of its life and starting give lots of hell. 200k hard miles. So I rescently let my back brakes get pretty bad. They screeched for 2000 miles before I could take time to replace the pads. Towards the end of that it started coming off cruise while driving and giving a “service stabilitrack” message. It goes away instantly. This pickup has given that message since it was new when you got in mud or sand or a rough road. It’s getting worse now that brakes are fixed. Also flashes ABS at the same time now. Some times you can go 100 miles and others it goes ding ding every 20 seconds. What should I look for? I haven’t checked codes yet, engine light stays on because of bad glow plugs it obviously doesn’t need but chevy wants 3500 to fix.
  2. 2017 Chevy 2500 with duramax diesel. my stock air box has given up. The over size screws I put in it long ago are stripping out and the hose to the TB is cracked. chevy is supposed to be pricing me a new one. Parts store couldn’t find me a replacement, but can get a K&N for $400. I will probably do what is cheapest. Will the K&N go right in and not cause codes?
  3. I guess that’s possible. It was a LT package that sat on a lot a good while at a dealer in Oklahoma. We bought it in late 09 and they had spiced it up I guess to help sell it. It has 20’s, pinstriping, little Chevy exhaust tip, Bug deflector, some Chevy leather seat covers over the cloth seats that are very nice quality since they are still nice and leather would be trashed by now. Chrome handles and mirrors. Basically a LT made to look like a LTZ besides the radio not being upgraded.
  4. Hey guys new user here! My wife has a 2009 Tahoe. 5.3 engine with 3.42 limited slip axle, tow package etc. it’s fairly low miles still at 130,000. this car has always been kinda a hotrod, much faster than others the same year. I figured it was the rear axle helping it a lot. Anyway at about 90k we started having throttle body issues the dealer said. The car would just die when you hit a bump. 2 different dealers installed 3 TB’s under warranty of some sort. I had a 4th I had to pay for done at about 105k and it’s not given as much trouble. Started dieing in the road again a while back and I put an alternator on and it seems that may have been the real issue. anyway, I’m here because ever since the TB swap I had to pay for this thing is a dog. Like it lost 40HP and 2-3 mpg. I feel like they maybe put the wrong tune in it or something. Is there anything I can do for it?
