  1. Hi, I've got a 2007 Silverado 1500, crew cab, LTZ, with AFM and 207,xxx miles on it. I was having an issue with my motor (I was hoping it was just a coil or plugs), and after the repair shop looked it over, they discovered all the spark plugs on one side of the engine were shot. Hoping it would still be an easy fix, they looked into it further to discover that there is no compression and it looks like my motor needs to be rebuilt or replaced (a somewhat common occurrence for this particular motor so it seems). My quote for replacing the engine with a Jasper engine is $6,500. It will come with a 3 year, 100,000 mile warranty. I've heard they're pretty solid engines. I "was" planning on turning it in around September/October and purchasing a new 2019. I figured around my area (lower Michigan) that I could get around $9,000. It has a new front bumper and fender flares color matched to the truck (to deal with rust issues), so besides the rust I stopped from spreading under the fender flares, the truck has no rust or other damage. Very clean inside, only issue is the crack in the dash (another common issue, I hear). It's not in immaculate condition, but I've taken excellent care of it the entire time I've owned it. Soo, I'm open to anyone's opinion. Is it worth putting a new motor in, or just try to sell it "as-is." I'm assuming I could get $3,000 for how it sits, but I could be WAY off on that. My thoughts: 1. Put a new motor in, drive for a year, still get $7-8K out of it? I don't know if the new motor would help with resale, or hurt? By that time, there should be incentives and deals on 2019, and I'm sure I can get one at least $7K lower than a a new one now. 2. Sell the truck, take the $3K (if I can even get that) and find a deal on a 2018...or similar $6,500 seems like a lot to me to put into an 11 year old vehicle. But I just don't know. I hadn't thought about any of this 3 days ago, but such is reality. Figured I'd try to read through whatever help you guys could give and weigh all my options. Appreciate any insight!
  2. I have a 93 1500 Chevy k pickup, got about 208xxx miles and about 3 months ago my radio started to just randomly cut out while playing. It doesn't reset any preset stations or the clock but the speakers will stop working. The only way to get it to work again is to turn the truck off for at least an hour and turn it on again, however it will cut out a couple minutes after. Is this a fuse issue? Wiring issue? Had anybody have this problem before it seems odd.
  3. Doug Thorley Headers

    I purchased these headers about a year ago and before I could get them installed started having issues with my 2016 Sierra and didnt want to give GM any reason to deny my powertrain claim. I have since had those issues resolved but decided to go a different route with my truck and thus these are for sale. Asking $750 obo plus the ride. Motivated seller as I would like to finish my G8. Thanks. These will fit both the 5.3 and 6.2 of the below listed vehicles. Note if you have the 6.2 you will have to expand the ball at the end of the connection pipe to fit. Thanks again. 2014-17 Silverado/Sierra2015-17 Suburban/Tahoe/Yukon/Escalade
  4. So i have a 2017 5.3 serria with a 6inch bds lift installed new from the dealership. Anyways last 10k then i rotated the tires and next morning over big bumps i have service stabilitrak which goes on and off fast, only over bumps. I dont see any tight wires on the abs lines. About 6inch of slack on top bottom was a but tight but i gave it more slack and still does it. Question is if i dont recalibrate my tpms sensors will that cause this? My 2015 never did this but it wasnt lifted as high. Right now truck thinks front are backs and so on. Dealship are bunch of you know whats right now so i dont wanna go there yet. Any help would be awesome!
  5. My 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 lost all oil pressure, and then a little later engine shut off. Did not make any loud noises, It just died. When we went to restart it, we could here the starter engage, but the engine wouldn't turn over. So we had it towed, and the guy at the tow shop put a wrench on it and tried to turn it, but was unable to. We have done no further troubleshooting, this happened on January 1, 2018. We assumed it is seized. What I am wondering is what you guys think, is it likely that it seized or is something else more likely to be the problem? If it is seized what part would have seized up? And would it be better to rebuild the engine, or to put a new engine in it? The truck has about 200k miles on it, and ran perfectly before this happened. It is the new body style, btw.
  6. Hey Y'all. I'm in need of some advice. I just recently bought a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado with a 5.3L V8 and its too quiet. I wanna give it that nice low rumble at idle but have it loud when you punch it. I don't wanna spend a whole lot of money so i'm hoping to stay away from a cat back system and lean more towards an exhaust. Was also planning on keeping the V4 mode as well so if it has drone issues let me know. I've heard of lots of people doing a Flow Master 40 with a resonator delete? Seems to be the most popular. Thanks in advance for the help!
  7. I just bought my first newish truck, being the 2014 Silverado 2wd z71 lt. It’s got the crew cab with 5.3l under the hood. I’m currently stationed at ft Stewart ga. Im just looking for some help or some advice on some upgrades I’d like to do to this truck and which products might be the best. - I’d like to change the headlights and fog lights from stock. - Put a leveling kit and some new (bigger) a/t tires on it and not sure what size being 2wd. - Change to an aftermarket air intake. - Do something about the shitty stock speakers (without Bose). Wether it be new door speakers and sub(s). Or be just subs and have a separate amp just for door speakers. Do I need a processor to hook up to stock 8” head unit. - How do I add any app or navigation to this stock 8” head unit - Exhaust? - How to get more performance from the truck. Anything would help, Thanks
  8. I just replaced my alternator on my 2006 Sierra 1500 today, after doing so my radio only plays sound out of the subwoofer. I checked the radio and amplifier fuses and they were good. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  9. Howdy folks, I have a 2015 Silverado 1500 LTZ that has an issue I have never seen. I am at 49,000 miles. This last weekend I drove to the airport and was away for 3 days. When I got back from my trip: I unlocked my truck, and as usual, all the courtesy lights come on. I got in and closed the doors, lights stayed on (specifically, the two dome lights by the sunglasses holder, and the two dome lights above the back seating area). Started it up, lights stayed on. Drove 45 miles home, lights stayed on the entire time. Pushing the buttons on the lights did nothing (could not turn them off manually). Parked in my driveway, turned the truck off, lights stayed on. Eventually they turned off (assumedly thanks to the battery rundown avoidance feature) This morning, got up to go to work and experienced the same thing (steps 1-5 above). I have found a number of forum posts from other forum sites regarding this issue, but they are all for older (pre-2014) trucks, and none of them had a solution anyway. I called my Chevy dealer service department and talked with someone there whom I trust and have been working with for 4 years now - he had no idea. Anyone here have any ideas? Fuses I should try and pull, etc? Thanks in advance.
  10. So I would like some advice. I want to level my 2015 Silverado 1500 4x4 crew cab. I am just out of the factory warranty with 38K miles. I was looking at installing a RC 3/2 leveling kit and have been reading many forums talking about how bad these leveling kits are to the suspension. Not just the RC, but any leveling kit. The kit is the 3" spacer between strut and tower with 2" block on rear. Many of the forums are saying the front suspension will wear out within 10K miles of installing. So I wanted to start a thread and get some opinions on some experiences with these kits. Has anyone had issues with these type of kits? What am I to expect in 10K, 15K, 20K miles to change out due to excessive wear from these kits? I know I will need to do an alignment right after install, but how will the truck ride and wear on the tires with these kits? Are they as bad as I have been reading? I read one thread where someone had to spend $6K to completely replace their IFS suspension from this kit. Was this a one off situation or a very good possibility? I want to get ride of that nose down look and give the truck a much better looking stance for a 4x4 truck. So what other options are there to level or give a slight lift to my truck that will cause as little damage down the road as possible to the suspension? I understand there is always risk when altering a suspension, but there must be some other options that do little damage and still allow a lift or level of the truck. Someone mentioned a body lift, but that still leaves the nose down look of the body. Thoughts?
  11. I have a 2016 Silverado LT2 and do have the new style projector bulbs and LED running light strips in the reworked front end vs the 2015 style... but I like LED lights more than bulbs. Anyone have the smarts to have looked into it to know if the LTZ lights would plug and play into an LT? The LTZ has LED front signal lights and tail lights where the LT has bulbs. Not saying I will do it, but it would be nice to know if it's possible so my truck would have the same look as an LTZ. Thanks
  12. I'm looking into adding some pocket style fender flares to my 2018 Silverado LTZ. So far for 2018 all I have come up with is Rough Country and Bushwhacker. Rough Country comes in at $299 unpainted and Bushwhacker comes in at a whopping $499 unpainted. I'm not so much concerned with the price as I am the quality. Both of which I am unfamiliar with. My truck's color is iridescent pearl tricoat so as you can imagine I am going to have to pony up to have it specialty painted too. Any thoughts on the two brands or a recommendation for a brand I have yet to find? Many thanks.
  13. Hows it going, any help and advice is VERY much appreciated. 2000 Silverado 4.8 vortec 1500 4wd. I have been trying to figure this truck out for months, shakes at all rpms although certain rpms are worse than others(the missfire) I have replaced intake manifold gaskets, double and triple checked vaccum system for leaks doing smoke tests (no vaccum leaks), replaced pcv valve, thoroughly cleaned injectors, confirmed everything fuel wise is working properly, new fuel filter. Still shaking badly. The other day I had a great idea, I waited until it got dark outside and decided to run the engine and look under the hood. Sure enough, I noticed sparking (shorting out) happening on pretty much all of the coils. The sparking is COMPLETELY random and there is never a consistent spark, for example one moment coils for cyl# 2,5,1,7 will be sparking, the next moment they wont and others will, and sometimes they look like they arent sparking at all, Also may mention that the drivers side of the motor seems to be sparking more often but it does indeed happen on both sides. It seems to spark a little more frequently when you spike the throttle. All i have replaced in the ignition system is the spark plugs, and made no difference at all. All of the coils are producing a spark at the spark plug. I have checked the common grounds to each ignition coil (plug on the top of the coil) and they all were grounded. Truck has 240k miles. If someone could please help me I would really appreciate it I feel like im SO close to fixing this thing and is my only car right now and need to figure it out. Thanks
  14. Hoping to find someone who has owned or lifted or both a stock Silverado LS. I have yet to find anyone with experience or seen this exact lift. I am narrowed down to either a 5" with 33's or 7" with 35's. With how low it sits, is 5" going to be enough or will it still be very low compared to stock trucks nowadays? I'll be using the stock 16" wheels. How much will it affect the acceleration?
  15. The 110V power plug in my 2014 Silverado will not charge my laptop. It still works to charge my printer and phone but not my computer. It did work for a few weeks and then just stopped one day which leads me to think it might be an issue with the charger, but the charger still works in a regular 110V plug. Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can troubleshoot this issue?
  16. I have 2015 Sierra, Power steering went out while driving last Wednesday June 15th, towed to closest dealership. On-line recall GMC 14743 for Steering electronic power assist system. does not cover my VIN...anyone else have power steering issues?
  17. Hello- I’ve been having issues starting my 2007 Silverado 1500 and was hoping someone could give me an idea what the problem is. - Engine struggles to turn over for 3-5 seconds before finally turning over. - If I turn the key to the “On” position before starting it, wait 3-5 seconds THEN start the truck it turns over immediately. - I can hear the fuel pump kick on when I set the key to the “On” position. - Battery was replaced but the issue remains. - Truck will start right away if it’s been sitting for less than an hour. - Temperature shouldn’t be an issue (30-40 degrees in the morning). - Here’s the kicker: If I use the remote start it turns over no problem. Any help/input would be appreciated. Thank you.
  18. GM-forums, I dare say I'm back for a moment or so my darlings. I need help from you folks for a most troublesome squeal that's driven me nuts for quite some time. 'A squeal? Prolly you belt,' you might say. To that I'd answer with a swift and affirmative 'No! This is unlike any squeal I've heard before, and I can't seem to find any videos with a squeal like it. Both belts are quite young, and we've replaced a few pulleys. We didn't replace the A/C tensioner pullies however. Alternator and Idler have been replaced. This squeal is loud. VERY loud. It will pretty much drown out anything within its vicinity sort of loud. I'll try to get a video up if need be. You folks are my only hope.
  19. Hi, I'm going to be converting my Z71 into AWD with the silverado SS transfer case and i need to know what type of Diff is in the front of my 1998 1500 z71. Wether it is Open LSD or Locking. Thank you.
  20. hello everyone im a long time lurker, ive been trying to find answer but cant find a clear one or even remotely, the question is surely beaten to death but here we go. I have a 2017 silverado LT, i already have 285r70/17 M/T im looking to buy newer rims the one i like have a 10 mm offset, im looking for a more aggressive stance i was wondering if i put 1.5 inchs spacer or 1.75" will the whole thing rub everywhere i have a 3 inchs level kit in front and 1 inch in back. Also would it be preferable to have an negative offset wheel instead of spacers ?
  21. I have a 2015 Sierra 1500 SLE 4WD and just installed a motofab 3" front and 2" rear leveling kit. Looks like it opened up some room for bigger tires. I will be ditching the stock 17" wheels and 31" tires. Probably get 18" wheels. Does anyone know how big I can go for new tires? Hoping to get 34" without having to trim much. thanks
  22. Hello all. I am about to purchase a new vehicle and am considering a 2014-2016 silverado 1500. Im wondering if anyone here has any of these years that has put a lot of kms on it. I wondering how reliable they are and what problems if any you have ran into with them. The reason I'm asking is because I purchased a subscription to Consumer Reports and Reliability was only a 2/5 and overall satisfaction was a 3/5. I just paid off a 2011 F150 a year ago and now it has a stretched timing chain @ 140k. I really don't want to buy a piece of shit again. Also, the dealership gave me a 2014 1500 to try out for a few days and i really loved the truck except for one thing. In comparison to my F150 it was an extremely rough ride. It seems like every dam bump on the highway was pretty jarring. Even my lady friend noticed it clearly and she doesn't give a shit about anything when it comes to vehicles. I've heard gm/chevy ride a little stiffer but this seemed pretty bad. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  23. Hi, I have a 1998 1500 Z71 4x4 and some times when i turn on asphalt (mostly when turning right) with 4 wheel drive off. an audible culunk is felt under my feet, I thought it could be a u joint or my Cv joints but i do not know. Any help would be appreciated.
  24. Brand new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 2WD, 600 miles. Has a speed limiter limiting the vehicle speed to 98 MPH. I installed a tuner to just raise this parameter only. At 99 MPH the truck began a drivetrain vibration that increased with speed. At 100-103 MPH it was extremely bad with a loud sound that filled the cabin and a vibration that felt like the drivetrain was about to fly apart. At 109 MPH the vibration ceased entirely. Slowing down from there the exact opposite happend with the vibration and noise subsiding entirely by 93 MPH. The truck also has developed a loud vibration noise at 52-55, and 34-39 MPH as the torque converter locks and unlocks. It will last as long as that speed and constant foot feed is maintained. I’ve owned many Chevrolet pickups to include a 1990 Silverado 1500 that could go over 140 mpg! I’ve never experienced this vibration and noise before. Could this be a problem on all 1500s that GM is covering up with software? I expect a $51,000 truck to be able to travel at 100 MPH if required without coming apart!!!! Any others experienced this? If so, was it diagnosed? Was it repaired? What was the diagnosis and the repair? Did the repaired problem return later? Thanks, Bart
