  1. I have a 1999 s10 blazer with a 4.3 motor i'm putting in a 2002 4.3 motor and the crank sensor whole is different what can i do? Are there any other differences i know about as well?
  2. Recently bought a '02 Sierra 1500hd and the seller wasnt sure on the lift size. My only experience is with spring type lifts in jeeps so I'm not sure how to tell the lift size on this truck. Ive attached pictures of what looks like a upper control arm drop bracket as well as the rear suspension. Also im suspecting it may have a body lift as well, the fenders sit 47 inches at the highest point, all around. Also on 35s
  3. I put the truck in neutral, like you should, i bring the truck to a stop, and i push the 4lo button. It flashes for about 5-10 secs but then goes right back to 2hi, I've tried rolling about 2-3mph and it still won't even engage. Its a 2002 chevy avalanche z71, with the 5.3L V8. Sometimes when i press it, it engages no problem, but other times, it just flashes and goes right back to 2hi. When i press 4hi, it goes right in, but 4lo is giving me some problems.
  4. Howdy! New to the forum, not sure if I’m doing this right. Anyhow, I’d like to install true duals with an X pipe on my Silverado. It’s a 2002 1500 Extended cab with the 5.3L. Is there a bolt on exhaust system like the one I’m looking for, or would I need to have it custom built and fit at a shop? If I need to have it built, is there a good exhaust shop in Western Kentucky you could recommend? Thank you!
  5. Replacing Bose factory 6.5" subwoofer in the center consol with a JL audio 6w3v3. I have seen many people talk about doing this but have never actually seen anyone follow through. I also replaced my rear door speakers. Factory size is 4x6 and I put in 6x8. Made tempelate of speaker size and traced onto the truck door with sharpie. Then used tin snips to cut out the hole. It was super easy and there is nothing back there to get in the way. Then made a mounting ring out of MDF and a jig saw. Painted it black and put a foam sealer on it which pulled tight when I mounted the speaker. I did notice a better sound quality when I added the 6x8 over the 4x6. I swapped because I lost sound out of my back right speaker and thought why not throw a bigger speaker in there. I will be installing the JL 6w3v3 with the JL jx250 amp this week and I will post pictures and let anyone know how it turned out. Obviously it's not a 10 or 12 under the rear seat but I think it will add a much better sound overall. Not looking to wake the neighborhood. I have read many places it's is "sooo complicated" to get to the Bose sub in the center consol why bother with it. Not true at all. It took 25-30 min to get the entire console out and pull the sub.
  6. I was hoping some of you might give me your thoughts and recommendations for which plugs to buy... ? I have a 2002 Silverado 5.3L v-8 Vin code T The manual list Denso PTJ14R15 and NGK PZTR5A15 AND the manual list a .060"gap. When I go to local auto parts websites there is no help for these part numbers and I am unsure of what plug and what plug gap I should use. I currently have a misfiring truck that runs like crap. Looking to replace the plugs, and possibly all of the coils, maybe the spark plug wires. My truck sits for months at a time unused but did run good before all this happened. Initially I thought it was bad ethanol gas from sitting unused but have used a lot of SeaFoam and have run through three tanks of pure gas. When I discovered possible coil failure could be the problem I started reading about issues that could cause the misfiring. Plugs are relatively cheap and I thought maybe I would replace them anyway and if that doesn't fix the problem take it to a shop for evaluation. I am not equipped with any specialty tools or knowledge to know much about what I am doing. I can change plugs if my standard sockets and wrenches will fit in the tight spaces and I can plug in new parts but don't want to buy parts I don't need either. My truck only has 70k miles on it. I have a friend coming over with a code reader to see what it might show but I don't believe it will tell you exactly what part to replace, just what the general symptom is and possibly which cylinders are misfiring. Could be fuel injectors too? Someone who tuned my truck years ago put in Denso TT16 plugs or something like TT but definitely 16 was the number. I do have long tube headers and a cold air intake but no power mods on the engine otherwise. Any and all help or suggestions are welcomed. And thanks in advance for any assistance.
  7. I have a 2002 2500HD Silverado. It is 2 Wheel Drive, 6.0L, with the Gov-Loc Differential. Recently my axle shaft snapped, when it did it also cracked the housing. I have a replacement ordered that doesn't have the backing plate or brakes. I am currently in a different town than the truck is so I was wondering what tools I will be needing to take the rear end off of the truck, take the brakes off of that one, put it on the new one and put the new one under my truck. What size bolts and if you can also what tension everything will need to be. It is the gt5 g80.
  8. I'm new to forum, I have a 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 Standard Cab 2 door ( Not a HD ) My Center support Bearing for my driveshaft is Bad. I have searched continuously for a video that has the support bearing (SB) in the same location and cant find one. My SB is Not hanging like others but it was located above the frame. Is this correct? My truck has ran fine for years until this went and I was wondering if the SB was supposed to be installed below the frame ( appearing to hang). Thanks for everyone's cosideration and help
  9. I have a 2002 Yukon XL Denali, and the button on the lift gate to open the window won't go in when I press on it. Which key do I put in there anyway? How do I open it?
  10. Looking at this truck this week Low miles, oil undercoated (I live in New England), 4x4, pics look very clean It would be my first Chevy Specific issues I should look for/ask about? Any advice is much appreciated, thank you!
  11. Hey Guys, I have an 02 Silverado 1500 4WD with a code P0443 (and a P0171, but I don't know that those are connected). However for now I am working on the P0443 code, Purge Valve Solenoid Circuit? What I have done thus far: 1) Bought a new Purge Valve Solenoid, check engine light w/ code still on after clearing codes. 2) I tested the old and new solenoid with a power probe and blowing through to make sure it is engaging. ie. air can flow through with now power, but after power probe initiates the valve shuts and can no longer allow air to go through purge valve solenoid. 3) Attempted to test if power was going through to the plug going to the purge valve solenoid, appeared to be getting 12.3v. I'll admit I'm not electrical savvy, but I seemed to get voltage to the plug when the key was turned to "on" position. Thanks, what else can I look at, or re look over?
  12. I recently inherited a 2002 Silverado 1500 Standard cab 4.8L 4x4 manual NV3500 transmission. It has 208k miles on it. My oldest son is 14 and we plan to restore it so he'll have something to drive when he gets his license. It drives very nicely. There's some slop in the front end and I expect it's due a pitman and idler arm, ball joints, and probably tie rod ends. Aside from that, the only thing that concerns me is shifting from 2nd to 3rd. It's really hard to find 3rd gear, and when I do it takes a little force to get it in there. Downshifting from 4th to 3rd is smooth. Any ideas as to the cause and fix?

  14. My 2002 6.0 AWD Escalade recently starting making loud popping sounds only during acceleration. I had a shop take a look at it and said it was my transfer case. My question is does a 2002 denali xl with 6.0 AWD and so will the transfer case fit my Escalade? The transfer case that came out the Denali is a np149 but will it function correctly on my Escalade? I'm a little confused because I heard I need the Denali vin to make sure it won't blow my transmission?

  17. I have a 2002 GMC Sierra 3500, 6.6 L Turbo Diesel, 4WD, crew cab, dually. I want to tow a 5th wheel and need to know how much of a 5th wheel I can tow. I know its GVWR is 11,400, but I've had a tough time finding an official source for the GCWR. I'm new to towing, but I believe those are the two numbers that matter most? The truck on paper weighs about 6,500, but I'm sure loaded and with fuel and passengers it's closer to 7,500. Even fully loaded that seems to leave me lots of room for pin weight, almost 4000 lbs! So what I'm really concerned with is the GCWR. I found another forum where someone said the GCWR for 3500 duallys is 23,500, but it's not an official source: http://www.dieselplace.com/forum/76-speciality-forums/127-3500-dually-trucks/159218-real-towing-capacity-dually.html. Can anyone confirm that my GCWR is 23,500? If the GCWR is 23,500 and my fully loaded truck weights 7,500, does that mean that I can tow a 5th wheel up to 16,000 lbs as long as the pin weight does not exceed approx 4000 lbs, which would put me past my GVWR? If that's the case, then we get to the confusing numbers that seem to conflict with that. The 2002 Trailer Life towing guide says my truck can tow up to 14,800 lbs when towing a 5th wheel. What is their number based on? So, my big question is can I go up to 16,000 lbs despite what the towing guide says? I'm looking at some RVs with dry weights of 12,500-13,500 lbs. Their max loads go to around 16,500. Last question. This is our first RV. Am I crazy to be getting a 37 ft 13k lbs 5th wheel? We may be using it for some long-term living, so I like having the additional home comforts that those models offer.
  18. Okay so, first post as well as first time using the forum so I don't ask something properly please forgive me. I'm trying to rebuild the trans on my 02 sierra 1500 2wd and for some reason I didn't purchase the correct model year rebuild kit. Dumb I know lol, but I'm wondering if I can make it work anyway or whether to suck it up and just return it. I'm trying to get this done quickly, but if it's going to be an issue I'll just return it and get the right one. I'm not extremely familiar with the differences in model years beyond the removable bell housing and length differences. The kit I bought on accident was for a 93-96. I realize the odds that I can make this work are slim especially given the changes around 95 and 96, but I thought I'd ask anyway. Sorry if this has been asked before.
  19. Hey i'm looking for some help on doing a transmission swap in a 2002 Chevy Silverado Here are the specs of my truck: -2002 Silverado automatic transmission -4x4 -v6 4.3 engine Could someone please let me know if I need to find a transmission with the exact year of (2002). Or will other years interchange with no modifications needed. I want to be able to simply swap them. I am getting mixed feed back from the salvage yards around my area. Most of the are saying I have to get a 2002 transmission and others are saying other years will work just fine. Apparently GM changed the part number each year so it adds the confusion perhaps. There is one salvage yard in my area that has a transmission from a 2004 and they are telling me it will work just fine. They said if anything the fly wheel might not work and they said they will provide the fly wheel with the transmission incase it doesn't fit the flywheel thats currently on my 2002 truck. Thanks for any help someone can provide!
  20. Hey everyone, I am new to this build thread deal but I have had some people tell me that buying a beat up 15 year old truck was a waste of time and money and this will chronicle them being wrong. So I guess to start and make a long story short I was a die hard F#rd fan, sorry didn't mean to curse I know this is a family page, and where I live in Michigan you mainly see GMC and Dodge. A good friend of mine was helping me do some work one day and we had to use his truck because mine was down for the 100th time. And after spending a day in his truck I started looking and eventually bought a 99 GMC sierra 1500. I loved that truck and spent many hours and dollars making it my own but in the end it is only a 1500. So my fiancé and I talked and we started looking for a 2500HD. After a few months we found a 2002 crew cab SB that has spent almost all of it life in the UP. As you can tell I have a thing for buying old vehicles and making them mine. I would rather spend $3500 on a truck and put $6000 into it than buy a $10,000 truck. Oh and all the while this truck will be my daily driver. So here is goes.....
  21. New here from Gibsonia. I just bought a 2002 Silverado and had to change the rear leaf spring shackle. Does anyone know the torque spec for a 2002? I've read the 2008 spec is 70 ft lbs.
  22. I have a 2000 gmc 1500 with the 5.3. I ordered a egr block-off plate, and exhaust manifold and intake manifold plugs from route 66 mods. I've heard of people deleting the egr value of gasoline engines. I'm not doing long tube headers, its my truck that drive every day and pull a trailer with and I'm gonna get big wheels and put a SS badge on it that just looks stupid. I looked on the other forums about deleting the egr on the 5.3 and all there is a bunch of guys arguing about what to do that haven't even done it them selves. I don't know if I'll have to have it re-tuned or just clear the code? I hope someone on this forum has done it and knows what to do.
  23. I give up I cannot find any mid travel kit for a 4X4 can some one please point in the right direction or do they even make mid travel 12" suspension kit for a 4X4
