  1. Ceramic Pro

    I am doing a little bit of research on possibly getting my 2015 1500 Silverado cermaic coated. My truck is black so it shows dirts and dust fairly easily. I have always applied wax to my previous cars just had heard about ceramic coating through social media. The product that I have heard the most is called CeramicPro. If anyone has used it on their vehicle how did it turn out? Any help is appreciated.
  2. I just installed a Kleinn air horn/ onboard air system part number GM1500-230 on my 2016 Silverado 1500 with a ProComp 6” lift. Check out the install video and pictures.
  3. Hello all, This is my first post on this forum. Last year I bought a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 Ext cab LT with a 5.3l V8 that is Flexfuel capable. Well, I never intended to use flex fuel, but last week, I did so on the spur of the moment. We drove about 3/4 of the tank gone. Then as I was pulling up to the gas station to refill before going out of town for work, my truck's idle began dropping and feeling like it is about to stall out at idle. This happens whether park is engaged or not. I filled up, put some seafoam in my tank and drove about 1.5 hours to work. It continued to idle like this all throughout the trip and even later when I went out and sat at idle while on my break. What could be the problem? I can't imagine that an engine that is meant for flex fuel could get that messed up by it. A side note: we had the transmission rebuilt in January, just in case that makes a different. It has only been a few weeks since last oil change. All fluids were checked and filled up at that time and have been checked a couple of times since.
  4. 2017 sierra A/T crew cab I have the most annoying tick noise over bumps, coming from the b pillar behind my left ear and it is driving me brick house, I've pulled at the trim off put my hands on everything made sure everything is tight, stuff rags in between contact points, I've run out of ideas, anyone have an guidance for me, I'm a ex gm technician of 5 years , I know what I'm doing but of course my own truck baffles me..per usual any new bulletins or tsbs?
  5. Lately, my Silverado VortecMax has had a bunch of numerous issues. I recently charged the battery and it suddenly died again trying to turn the truck on. The engine rebuild was also a complete failure. When the Silverado reaches 25 MPH whilst driving it, the truck starts to vibrate. Smoke especially comes out of the engine despite that it's not overheating at all. However, the car on the outside and inside are in pretty good shape except it has a dent on the side.
  6. I just bought a 2015 GMC Sierra Double Cab 2WD 5.3L and I'm trying to find a full headers back exhaust system. If it helps any to tell what i like, I like the sound of my dads F150 5.0L with long tube headers and mbrp exhaust. I like loud but not obnoxiously loud. I like a nice sound of a V8.
  7. Is anyone aware of what is required to install factory fog lights into a 2016 & up Base level Sierra 1500 that didn't have them from factory? Will any scrap of wiring be present? The switch is not there... but can one order a switch, the lights and slap it in? Can the BCM be flashed by a dealership if required? I bought an el cheapo that doesn't have fog lights and the blank inserts drive me bonkers already... so I WILL be filling them in with factory fog lights... it would just be nice to know if I can have them work like factory or not. Otherwise I'll wire them up like jobbers and have a jobber switch. Thanks
  8. Now that winter is over, I have noticed that when the radiator fan kicks on there is an unusual light grinding noise. I am curious if anyone has had this issue, or knows if there are readily available fan bearings that I could try to replace those before spending close to $300 on new fans.
  9. trying to put together a swap for a 75 custom deluxe and was wanting the 6l80 transmission for the efficiency. would it work with a 4th gen 2005 5.3 out of a silverado?
  10. New to the forum and thought I would inquire if anyone has some advice in regards to a starting problem I am having. Thank you for reading this. For starters, the SUV is a 2009 GMC Yukon XL SLT 5.3L SFI Flex Fuel (120K miles and oil change light is on, changed oil but have not reset light indicator as I have been playing with starting issue). For the last few weeks it has had a strange intermittent starting issue. When you turn the key to the acc position the battery reads correctly and matches my meter with all electronics working. However, when I would turn the key to the next position (ignition). It would just click. So I would turn it off and then retry with no luck starting. When held in full ignition position it would click and click and then start. as long as you held it in place for a good 5-10 seconds. I checked the battery again and ran tests on it. Brand new battery and no issues. I checked battery cables and grounds with no red flags. I removed the starter relay and jumped 30/87 and confirmed the starter itself has no issue. The starter kicks on and sounds good. Yesterday, I went to start it with a fully charged battery and it would only click. Doors would try and lock and unlock during the process but it would not start. I got out of the vehicle and locked the doors. use the FOB to remote start and the vehicle started with no issues. I got into the SUV and tried the key, and it started right up. Started it a number of times with the parking brake on, parking brake off with no luck in recreating the problems. However, I feel that it's only getting worse with no real answers and no way to recreate the problems or how to solve. Which is why I am here. I have googled quite a bit and read a number of posts here, but no real solution. So I am hoping someone can point me in the correct direction. I love troubleshooting but this is bit annoying. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  11. I installed the McGaughys 33037 Rear Lowering Shackles. One thing to note is that you will need to remove the tow hitch and bend a seam on the truck bed. To get the level look you will need 3' I installed 2' the truck still has a rake of 1'
  12. Hey guys, first post on here and I've got something that stumped me 100%. I have a 2005 silverado 1500 flex vin code Z. It Idles rough it has terrible acceleration, wide open throttle it takes off like nothing is wrong. It misses on 7 every time, misses on 2 every other time, every other cylinder misses here and there. No misses when in park and rpms are kept about 2500. CEL flashes most the time when accelerating (except WOT) otherwise the light is on solid. It has 220k on it and I have replaced alot of parts. New parts All 4 02 sensors OEM Plugs OEM wires OEM Fuel pump OEM Throttle body cleaned 3 stage fuel system cleaner BG Brand Air filter believe it or not OEM again New transfer case (unrelated issue) I have covers the base of the intake with brake cleaner multiple time, no signs of leaks. I've had the smoke machine hooked up 3 to 5 times and again no signs of leaks. At this point what is the best route to take? Remove intake manifold so it's easier to get to and replace the main grounds behind the heads and replace gasket at the same time? Replace the pcm? Replace throttle body maybe? Any other suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
  13. I know a few people have had this issue with their HIDs jiggle in the projector housing so I figured id make some videos and put them on youtube for all to see. I talked to GM Canada and they wanted me to drop my truck off for a full day to diagnose the problem and pay out of pocket. Im now thinking its a better idea to put LED's in instead. Has anybody done this before? Ive found lots of videos of the 2014/2015 LED conversion but nothing for the 2018. Thank you.
  14. 2000 Silverado 5.3

    I drive 2000 silverado 1500 5.3 vortec. Well here for last month or 2 notice decrease in power etc. Requires more throttle going up hill,rough idle or inconsistent idle, and also on it occasionally will hesitate or the best description is it will start like cutting back like a train (chuga,chuga) with almost no power it just cruises the speed I'm going mostly in lower rpm from a stop.Ive changed fuel filter,oil, oil filter (just because why not) today i got my cats replaced and exhaust system installed. Problems still occurring, so that only leaves a vacum leak or maybe a bad sensor (mass air flow)?? Idk please help or point me in right direction!! Thanks in advance
  15. Hello i just joined and i need help . I have a 2012 Silverado 1500 4x4 with a 3.5" level kit and im planning on doing a rc 3" body lift . With the body lift can i still use my spare tire ? And what will i loose? And if you guys have a similar setup with a 3" BL can you post some pictures! Thanks for the help!
  16. On two separate occasions I've had to drive with my low pressure light on when I know my tires aren't low. The first time was on a 4 hour road trip (not ideal) and currently, for the past 3 days. I use two gauges when I fill my tires. The gauge on the pump that reads a little high and a handheld that reads spot on. I've used them both extensively on different vehicles and I know how they read. I'll put 37 psi in all my tires when it's cold and the truck will not read it above 29. It only does this when the temp outside is close or below freezing. I could understand a few psi difference but it refuses to raise about 29 no matter how much air is in there. When it's warm it goes right back to normal. I know these aren't the most reliable sensors but maybe there's an easy fix out there.
  17. So about a week ago, I got the "Left rear indicator failure" I figured it was just a bulb. So I put it off for a couple days. However, this Saturday I decided to change out the bulbs. Well the bulbs are good and also the fuses. I checked the wires that come from the junction box and they where all good. Any idea what it could be? The running lights work, but when it comes to stoping and the turn signal I get nothing. This shit is driving me crazy. This is what I've been told: - I need a new Junction Box. - I need to replace the fuse box in the engine bay Please help, thanks for anything!
  18. Surely someone must make some nicer looking/dressed up coil cover/valve covers for the new style engine by now? Can't find a thing online. Would be nice to spruce things up under the hood a bit with some chrome or carbon fiber or just something different. Anyone spot anything anyplace???
  19. My 2004 Silverado 1500 AC is not blowing out of the top vents, it only blows from bottom. I took it to get diagnosed and asked for name and part number but when I looked online I couldn't find it. He said he it was called a "control head' part number 599-009. What can I do to fix this?
  20. Hi hello, recently my v8 2001 1500 suburban rear end got destroyed, i have a v6 2004 Silverado 1500 with no motor, i was wondering if i can just swap the rear ends on them, anybody know if it will it work? What could be the problems if i do it and its not compatible???
  21. 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?
  22. So I was driving my 2014 Chevy Silverado and without giving it gas just driving it started to make a like tapping sound from the engine area. It’s hard to explain but it was making a tapping noise then when I would give it gas it would go away. It’s not all the time but it comes and goes.
  23. Quick question i ordered new wheels and tires I went with a 17 inch wheel and went from a 265/65 18 to a 275/70 17, I'm wondering if It will fit with out a level and minimal trimming? Picture of the wheel I ordered below
  24. Good morning everyone, I recently purchased a 2018 GMC Sierra Crew Cab SLT All-Terrain package. I'm personally wanting to install a leveling kit and I believe I've selected one. I've read a lot about leveling kits for 2017-18 trucks and this seems like a great kit. However, there isn't many reviews on this product by ReadyLift. The appeal of this lift is the UCA replacements and the <2" height it allows. I'm wanting to go with 305/55/20 or 285/60/20 tires with my stock AT wheels and I want as much clearance possible. I found maybe 2-3 members on here with this lift and I'll quote them below. My question is, will this work with my All-Terrain package? In the description of the kit it states, "Will not work on Z71 packaged vehicles with factory Rancho® struts." Yet on ReadyLift's website, there is nothing supporting that statement. Does anyone have any information or review for this kit? Thanks!
  25. Hello all, I am thinking of upgrading my stock halogen headlights to something that is brighter(either led or hid) and has slightly more throw on my 2015 silverado 1500. I was wondering what brands are reputable and reliable. I am looking for something that requires little to almost no modification of the factory harness. If anyone can point me in the right direction or provide thier own opinions it would be greatly appreciated
