  1. p0420 p0430?

  2. Converter Shudder?

    just changed the fluid in it 2 years ago and did not drop the pan. It’s got 15k miles on it since then. Did not flush it. Pumped 2 quarts out at a time and then put 2 new quarts in till got fresh fluid. Looked last night online in to dropping pan but have to drop the exhaust down and I don’t think could get bolts out? It’s been In salt all it’s life. Going to try a additive first. Might try the Lube Gard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Update on this. Put o2 extender on it. Now Got a o2 sensor code instead of the normal 430 code. Just put a new o2 sensor in it today. Hopefully that fixes it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The truck seems to run fine. code came back on twice at 75 miles each time now for 0430 code. turned it off and its been close to 250 miles and no light on. I did get bottle of cataclean and ran that through it. now going to fill up with premium for a tank.
  7. 2005 1500 5.3 L. 135k miles. First got P0430 code, then got both 430 and 420 code. light comes back on at 220 miles. now have p0420 code and p0446 code. thinking of replacing the 02 sensors to start with. is that good place to start?
  8. '10 Tahoe 5.3L with 65k miles on it. is it to late for a disabler? do not to have any issues with it at all. is the Range AFM Disabler the best one? is there any cheaper ones out there?
  9. do I need this? ACDelco 18K1147 Professional Rear Drum Brake Shoe Adjuster and Return Spring Kit with Springs and Caps
  10. Going to replace the rear drum brakes on a 2005 1500 5.3: crew cab. what are all the parts I need?
  11. Have '10 Tahoe and '05 1500. '10 axle seals went at 50k miles. '05 1500 has 130k on it. just changed the oil in differential few months back. In October it started to leak. its axle seals. so looking in to if they make a better seal? I would think on the '05 are the original ones. . thinking might as well get same Acdelco ones if there is not a better product out there.
  12. what ac delco part number do I need? 2005 1500 5.3 L crew cab and Vin T. only difference from $160 one to $300 one is level sensor? is that needed or re use the old one ?
  13. Truck Quit

    Ground wire was the issue. Not 1 but 2 problems on 1 wire. One on the front and other was on back of the motor.
  14. Truck Quit

    Now it will start up fine and once it gets warm it shuts off.
  15. 2005 5.3l 1500 130k on it. The other day going off an off ramp the truck quit and would not re fire. turned over but would not fire. checked fuel pressure at motor and it had it. it has enough fuel pressure. changed the crank sensor and that was not the issue. its throwing no codes. so what could it be? something electrical?
