  1. oil pan

    Rear main requires dropping the transmission from the engine in order to access. The speed sensors are either connected to the tailshaft of the tranny or to the transfer case if equipped. When I replaced the tranny in my old 99 silverado I had similar issues to what you describe due to hooking up the wiring harness to the wrong sensors. 4x4 has three speed sensors in the transfer case all with the same connectors. Changed my connections and all was good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Transmission swap

    Service 4wd won't keep you from moving. Get the codes read to narrow down whats causing the CEL. I would guess that a plug/wire is either broken or in the wrong spot.
  3. Transmission swap

    Make sure your fluid level is good. If its low you wont get enough internal pressure to get things moving. Is it the 'service 4wd' message or the ABS/brake light?
  4. Transmission swap

    I had an issue when I swapped the tranny in my 99 silverado. Mine is 4wd and I had incorrectly connected the three speed sensors on the transfer case tail housing. Had brake warning lights on and wouldnt shift out of first. Check those sensor connections.
  5. AC Won't Blow on 5

    Check the fuse in the underhood block. I had the same issue on my 99 Silverado. Blower motor resistor did nothing for hi speed. Checked the fuses and found there wasn't even a fuse plugged in. Put one in and it works!
  6. Leaks

    Thanks for the info....on the oil cooler gasket, can I change it without draining the oil since its above the pan?
  7. Leaks

    Anyone have the OEM part #s for the water pump and power steering pump?

    Oh here is the pic of the oil filter plate area.
  9. Leaks

    99 Silverado Z71 w/ 5.3, I bought it back in May and knew I had a leak from the driver side front axle seal. Recently I have been noticing a second spot underneath on the driveway. Got under neath and see the rear bottom of the engine coated in oil. Closer look shows what looks like a leak from the oil filter adapter plate? Was surprised I didnt have the oil cooler lines. While under the front it looked like the power steering pump or lines were leaking. Took off the plastic plate under the front and saw this: And this: Water pump starting to go? So my questions are: Is that the oil filter adapter leaking and is the repair just the O rings? Is it the power steering pump leaking or maybe just a seal? How big of a job is that? How difficult is the water pump? I am fairly mechanically inclined and enjoy fixing stuff especially on vehicles. However some things arent worth the time/effort. Thanks for any assistance/info.
  10. Abs Light

    I just used caulk to reseal mine. Its not in an extreme heat area but can be subject to moisture. I ran a decent bead around the groove in the edges and screwed it back together. Still no lights!
  11. Abs Light

    I just did the repair as shown in that youtube vid this afternoon. Had a little difficulty with one of the torx bolts and ended up having to dremel it off. Other than having to buy a soldering iron and a tiny torx driver, it was a free fix. So far no lights after the first drive to work!
