  1. Can't answer all of your question, but the TPMS does not need to spin to turn on.
  2. That is the conclusion I came to also. https://www.jasperengines.com/ And since GM doesn't sell the rebuilt engine I need anymore, my Chevy dealer can order and install it for a decent price.
  3. I have been using the Bridgestone Dueler on my two Suburbans for years. Never felt the need to switch.
  4. Yes you can reuse the TPMS sensors, but depending on how old they are, replacing the batteries would be a good idea.
  5. Had the same thing happen to my Suburban. One of the damper motors buried deep under the dash, had died.
  6. Maybe have the alignment checked by another place ? The dealer I go to can be hit or miss with an alignment, so if I think they screwed up I go to a local mom and pop outfit that does a good job, but is a pain in the butt to get an appointment.
  7. Don't know what causes the whining at slow speeds, but at fast speeds it is my wife.
  8. Is it a plong or a plonk ? There is a big difference.
  9. Incentives are for the cars that are still sitting on the lot. My Chevy dealer that has been in business since the 1950's had around 20 new cars on their lot last week, and all of them were plain jane boring cars. They usually have three different lots filled with 100's of new cars.
  10. Years ago on two different occasions I had tried to help out the guy that bumped into my vehicle by not calling the police and got screwed for hundreds of dollars both times.
  11. We have had a 3/4 ton 2005 Suburban four wheel drive with an automatic trans for 9 years. It has buttons to the left of the steering wheel where you can select 2 wheel drive, 4 wheel drive high and 4 wheel drive low. While we mostly drive it in 2 wheel drive, the other two 4 wheel drive options get used about every weekend. Last weekend it was switched to 4 wheel drive high and now no matter what I do, it stays there. Any ideas where I should start looking ?
  12. Brembo pads are tough on rotors. On my car the pads and rotors were toast at 28k miles. But turning down the rotors is not a choice in my opinion. I replaced the rotors with new gm rotors and the pads with EBC red stuff pads.
  13. Your test light will be drawing current. And if you have a voltage drop across your fuse, the fuse is blown. You don't measure current with a chart, you need an ammeter for that.
  14. Depends on what the block is made of. IIRC most 5.3's are iron and most 6.2's are aluminum.
  15. That would be great. Mine is getting up there in mileage and will probably need to be replaced in a few years.
  16. You shouldn't have to replace it for a long time. Certainly not now, maybe in another 100k miles.
