  1. 2004 Yukon Denali XL 1500 AWD Ok, so I have done many brakes in the past but this has me stumped. I put new calipers rotors and pads all the way around on the truck and have bled the brakes like 6 times. twice with a helper and 4 times with a bottle. All times the fluid comes out with no air but it still goes to the floor when its turned on. A small amount of push back is noticed after pumping a few times while the truck is off. But as soon as I turn it on and push its nothing. I have read about there possibly being air in the ABS module and am looking for how to bleed that with just one person and have it actually work. The master cylinder is and has been filled throughout and never dropper too low. I placed all the new parts and puller the hose off the old calipers and attached it to the new ones quickly replacing the copper washers. I just cant figure out what could be happening, any help would be appreciated.
  2. I’m starting a build on an 01 Sierra c3 and I don’t really know where to start since it’s awd, I’m wanting to do a 5/6 drop, any awd or lowering fanatics?
  3. Hi, 03 Yukon Xl Denali 6.0 AWD. Has a growl/whine noise in the front end as I slow down after a long stretch of highway speed. Happens at low speed before stopping. It also makes a clunk sound as I accelerate out of a low speed turn in the front end. A slight delay in engaging and clunk sound. Front differential, transfer case, wheel bearings? Anybody deal with something similar or can identify? Thanks guys
  4. Hello, I've read a lot of good information on here so I'd figured I would ask a question. I have a 2006 GMC Sierra with 288k and it is the best truck I've ever bought, however, I feel it is time to switch to a newer Sierra. I'm looking for a 2014, 2015 or 2016 Sierra 1500 with the 5.3L AWD and Crew Cab. Which model year is better as far as bugs and issues and why do you recommend it? Thanks
  5. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 7-20-2017 Everyone loves reading about luxury, rear-drive, 200 MPH sedans with stick shifts, and GM's Cadillac division makes the best in the world. The problem is that nobody buys them. ATS compact sports sedan sales are at a level below the Chevy Volt now, and the CTS is barely selling, with sales having dropped below 1,000 per month on average in 2017. The truth is that rear-drive means space compromises and the halo V versions of these outstanding cars can't draw buyers to the 4-cylinder automatics. Another fact is that sedans as a class of cars have jumped the shark, as most shoppers now search for crossovers. Maybe Buick has a better plan to attract premium sedan drivers to the GM fold. The new 2018 Regal GS has a slightly different formula for GM. One that is more practical for everyday use and still affords its driver more than enough performance for public roads. With 310 hp from the GM's 3.6-liter V6 engine, power is at or above that offered by most mainstream and premium models. Of course, GM names Audi and BMW in its press release comparisons, but let's all hope that this car does not attract only those (very limited) buyers. The real meat of the premium market resides with Lexus and Acura in the premium sedan marketplace. The Buick Regal GS may well pull in some of those (much more numerous) shoppers. The Regal GS will feature AWD standard. That gets many buyers who believe that real performance means driving the rear wheels on board. Not all, but Caddy's CTS-V is there for the purists. The front-drive platform the Regal uses will have more interior space due to its design. Buick is adding in sporty elements to the Regal GS In what looks to be just the right amounts. those include: -New 3.6L V-6 with 310 horsepower and 282 lb-ft of torque featuring direct injection, cylinder deactivation and stop/start technology -Standard nine-speed automatic transmission and intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) with active twin clutch for improved vehicle control, and five-link rear suspension -GS-specific, AGR-certified, performance seats that are heated, cooled and massaging with adjustable seat and seat-back bolsters as well as thigh support -Second-generation Continuous Damping Control (CDC) capable of 500 adjustments per second and Interactive Drive Control with GS and Sport modes -Unique sport front and rear fascias, side skirts and rear spoiler -Standard 19-inch wheels -Performance brakes with Brembo front calipers -Sport-tuned exhaust system -Sport flat-bottom steering wheel and metal pedals -Available head-up display Buick's recently impressive quality scores and more modern and appealing styling will start to add back buyers. Cars like the Regal GS may be what the company needs to augment crossovers in the showrooms where shoppers looking for more than Chevy offers go to consider their options. We have not seen any GM media fleet cars for a while. If GM supplies a Regal GS to the GM-trucks' media fleet in the coming year we will provide a full review here at GM-trucks.com.
  6. 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?
  7. I have a 2014 Chevy Silverado with a 5.3L LTZ. at 50000km, I have seen a service AWD popup in the dash and wondering is this is pointing to an issue or if it's just a head's up for switching on the AWD. I have had no issues moving from 2wd to Auto to 4wd Hi back and forth. This is a not a colored dash notification like a check engine, it's just a popup you can dismiss. Does anybody have any information for me? Thanks
  8. hey guys recently acquired a 2004 astro van in great condition. looking to buy a lift kit and likely get it installed by a shop, i havent done much for calling around for quotes i am sure there are places that would do it all over in northern il. anyone know places that dont charge out the ass to install the kit? let me know id appreciate it.
  9. I know this has sorta already been hit on, but is it possible to use a 1.5-2 inch body lift kit on an awd denali? I know its trickier to do a suspension lift on them because of the AWD, but I was thinking a body lift shouldn't have anything to do with that and should be all good? But then the various body lift kits I've browsed online made for a 2006 Sierra/silverado specifically say that they don't fit denali models? Confused because AWD shouldn't have any affect on a body lift...
  10. I have a 2006 GMC Sierra 1500 Z71 4x4 ext cab I am converting to AWD. I have ordered the NV-149 transfer and front differential out of a 2005 Cadillac Escalade with the drive shafts. Also the LQ9 6.0, But that's another topic for another day. What I need help with is, is there more than just switching the transfer and front diff? is there a computer or a wire harness that need to be added or swapped? is there computer programming needed after the swap? Any help is appreciated.
  11. I have an 06 Sierra Denali AWD and I'm wanting to lift it, but I've read and heard from multiple sources that even a small lift will cause vibrations from the transfer case.. But then I've seen lifted Denali's online that guys reportedly are having no problems with. Also, I've seen people lift AWD hummers and jeeps with no problems at all. So, is a 3 inch lift doable on a 2006 Sierra Denali, or will it cause problems? ALSO, apparently Skyjacker makes a 3" lift specifically for AWD Denali's, anyone have experience with this?
