  1. My 2000 Silverado has an issue with the evap system that is causing the P0449 trouble code. I've watched several videos and it looks kind of simple to fix the issue, except my truck seems to be different. Most videos show a small canister behind the fuel tank. Mine however has a larger canister in front of the tank - I think. Am I looking at the right thing? Two fuel lines seem to go to it. A mechanic said the truck had to be upgraded to fix the trouble code - apparently the old parts are no longer available. I'm wondering if old parts might be available via Ebay, Amazon, etc - things he can't do (because he has to warranty his work) but as the owner I might be willing to do. Am I even looking in the right place?
  2. New person here who has some questions for more knowledgeable chevy owners out there. I am attempting to install a regular alarm into my 2000 Silverado, on my alarm it only has (-) power lock and (-) unlock outputs. And I see that the car itself has both positive (+) power lock and unlock. Since I'm not installing a remote start to the vehicle, I didn't purchase any sort of bypass module for the passlock. Do I need it to connect my alarm to my car? Or do I convert the negative outputs to positive using relays? Also since I was adding the aftermarket alarm anyway, I was thinking of running a line to back and attaching it to the trunk pin to act as a sort of door trigger for the tailgate. Can this be done the way I'm thinking of? I want the alarm to go off if someone opens my tailgate. Sorry if I seem to be asking stupid questions. Thank you for your help.
  3. Hello all, I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado LT 5.3 Z71 with 270,000 miles. I really need some help/advice. Recently I've been experiencing problems with my truck not starting when the engine is at operating temperature. For instance, I drive it 15 minutes, turn it off, run in a store, come back out and it won't start. Well, I say "start" but what I really mean is it will start and then immediately die. It will idle for about half a second around 300-400 rpms and just shut off. Usually what I will do is just keep trying to crank it and eventually after doing the same thing for about 20 keyturns, it will struggle to idle for maybe 10 seconds and then idle and run smoothly. I'm then able to drive home no problem. No noise or rattling or anything. The "Service Enginge Soon" light is always on regardless and has been since I got the truck 3 years ago. Obviously I cannot do this forever as something is wrong and I don't want to end up stranded in some parking lot. Plus I know I'm wearing out the starter cranking it so many times. I live in South Carolina and yesterday it was around 100 degrees, so this problem will only get worse as the high temps make it harder for the oil to cool down. After browsing the internet on and off for several weeks I'm convinced that is an oil pressure problem. I don't know if the engine is simply worn out and on its last leg where the only thing to do is rebuild the engine with new bearings and whatnot to get the proper oil pressure. But I also don't know if it's something else that I just don't know about. I've read that it could be the oil pump pickup tube or that running a thicker viscosity oil like 15w30 or 10w40 would help with the pressure. I just don't know and I'm hoping someone has experienced this and can offer a solution. I'm just wondering if I need to even go down this rabbithole or just try to trade it in and get a new car payment and a [peace of mind] warranty. Few things: 1. I thought that maybe I had a bad Oil Pressure Sensor and that it was automatically shutting off the truck on its own. Since I didn't feel any vibrations or hear any noise, I figured why not just detach the sensor for now and see if the truck will stay running. I thought at first that this had worked but no, engine still shutting off. 2. I just changed the oil with 5 quarts of Mobil 1 5w30 and an STP oil filter. I also added one quart of Marvel Mystery Oil to it to help get out possible gunk. The oil level is in the proper range on the dipstick. 3. Last week I cleaned the Mass Air Flow sensor out with MAF cleaner in a spray can because the engine sounded to me like it couldn't breathe. However, I was able to rule that out b/c it did not fix the problem. 4. I was seeing a few articles on the problem being a small filter under the oil pressure sensor that clogs easily so that the sensor cannot get a correct pressure reading. However, I believe my truck doesn't have that filter. I think it was only on models from 2007 forward. I will try to make a short video of exactly what it's doing and post it here in the next few days. Thanks in advance for your help.
  4. Hello gentlemen, I am new here, and to the forum scene as a whole, and I have a problem that I could your expertise with. I have owned two Silverado's and i have had the similar problems with both. The dash will make a very strange, screeching sound. On my 2000, the turn signal wont activate after weeks of making this noise. Now, the lights themselves work fine but it seems that the vehicle is just not registering that i have switched on the turn signal. Any suggestions, before i start to tear the whole thing about haha? Thank you all.
