  1. I recently acquired a 1951 Chevrolet 6100 missing its engine and would like to refurbish it. However, Instead of putting in the original engine (Chevrolet 235) I am looking for an engine that came out in the next 10-15 years to put in my truck that will out put 200+ horsepower without being out of touch with the truck. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Truck started to make a squeaking noise this weekend, took it to the dealership on Monday. Dealership called Tuesday and said that they could not find anything wrong with the truck and that this sound is normal. Take a look at this video so that you can hear and understand what I am talking about. https://youtu.be/aERzjGAX-aU Does this sound normal to you guys? I also put water on the belt and the noise was persistent so it does not appear to be the belt. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  3. "ENGINE POWER REDUCED, SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL, SERVICE STABILITRAK" Has anyone ever came across this before? Let me start from the beginning. On 11/2932013, halfway on my drive from work to home, I noticed that my truck would "sputter" and the rpm would fluctuate when giving it some gas while going up a hill/incline (interstate). Once I was done with the hill/incline, everything would smooth out. Closer to home, once again, I would only notice the "sputter-like" reaction and rpm fluctuating slightly when giving it gas to climb a hill/incline. Made it home fine with no problems or warnings/lights. Upon embarking to work the next morning (11/30/2013), at approximately 5-6 miles from home, I went to give the truck some gas to get above 60 and all of a sudden all these warnings and dings starting going off. My engine warning light illuminated and my traction control light came on and I noticed some warnings scrolling through at the bottom saying: "ENGINE POWER REDUCED, SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL, SERVICE STABILITRAK". it blew my mind! Meanwhile, I noticed my truck slowing down no matter how much gas I gave it. I was coming to a road intersection just ahead and preceded to turn around and pull over to investigate. I couldn't understand what was going on so since I was close to home, I just "limped" it back home and not getting over 40-45 mph. Got home and shut engine off and called my job. I went back out later before my ride got there to pick me up, and started my truck. It started fine and I didn't notice any "sputtering" like before, however the engine light is still illuminated. I can't do anything until this Wednesday anyway. Is there someone that has come across this before? The day it happened I Google'd to my heart's content and found that I am not alone, however I did notice that there can be a number of things that could cause this. Would any of this be covered under a warranty? How would I know if I still have warranty on my truck? I need some expert advice on this. Here is my truck info to the best of my knowledge: 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Taupe Gray 5.3 L V8 Crew Cab Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks, R. Ashley
  4. Hey Guys, I have the opportunity to pick up a 2019 5.3 engine & transmission with 20k miles on it fairly cheap. I have an 09 sierra that I'd like to swap it into, currently running a stock 5.3. My question is: Is it a big deal to make a change between years like that? I've replaced engines before in older trucks but never with this type of age difference, I don't want to get in over my head. Thanks!
  5. Hey everyone, I picked up my 6.2L 2020 GMC Sierra AT4 about 3 or 4 months ago. I haven't gone ham on it or anything crazy, mostly just normal in town driving, a little highway driving, and one 400 mile trip on the interstate & highway pulling an 18' enclosed trailer (just helping someone move, so the trailer wasn't heavy; just furniture and stuff, not snowmobiles or anything heavy like that). The truck only has a little over 2,000 miles on it. From the beginning I always thought the engine sounded kind of weird, had like a ticking or clicking noise to it. Everyone else told me they couldn't hear it, and said I was crazy; until yesterday one guy said it sounded like my engine had a tick. Can hear it the most once the engine is warmed up. I took it to the dealership and asked them about it. They said in older models it'd be a sign of lifters going out, but in the new models that it's normal unless it gets any louder or starts sounding more aggressive. I'm kind of a little nervous since my brother just found out in his 2015 GMC Sierra All Terrain his fuel pump is leaking and letting gas into the oil; he first started noticing the problem when his mpg started going to crap a couple years ago, but the dealership kept telling him it was just the fuel blend in the winter time, even though it was happening year round. Finally he took it to a different mechanic (other than the dealership) and they figured out the problem really quick, and they assume it has been happening for a couple years now. Along with that they also figured out why his breaks would go out at low speeds, something with the vacuum system. To fix both problems was going to cost him about 3 grand parts & labor. I'm hoping mine isn't a mechanical flaw like what he found in his truck, especially not this early. However, I have had to bring my truck into the shop 2 times already - once for a "service steering column" warning where they said the wiring coming unseated and they had to reseat it; and once because the infotainment system was defective and wouldn't turn on so they had to replace it; and yesterday I had a "service steering column lock" warning show up on the display, but I wasn't close enough to a dealership to bring it in so I'll have to wait for that one to pop up again. Has anyone heard that ticking/clicking engine noise on their 2019 or 2020 Chevy or Silverado? What the is it? It just doesn't sound normal.
  6. Anyone else experiencing a hard shift or hesitation of the engine when you first hit the gas. For example, I start the truck, reverse out of the driveway, put the car in drive and when I hit the gas, the truck goes toward and then i feel the truck completely stop for a second (hesitation) and then it continues forward, I only expierence this when I’m going from reverse to forward. I come to a complete stop and do not shift to drive when moving backwards still.
  7. I have a 07 TB LT with a 5.3 LH6 engine.. The engine is shot i found metal shaving under neath inside the oil pan the truck dis not over heat it just stalled on the hwy and didnt turn over. Tried spinning the fly wheel but no look it is out. What would be my cheapest way to fix this? Simply purchasing another engine (ard to find and expensive) or buying a short block and replacing? If there is any other engine that u know are capable of just quick replacing and plug amd play please let me know
  8. Took my 2017 Chevy Silverado z71 to the dealer today . Engine was ticking on top end sounded like a lifter tick and slight deeper knock in bottom end . oil presure was all over the place would go from 65 psi to 25 psi at same rpm. I have 44,000 miles. Has anyone else had this issue? With the strike in play who know how long I will be without my truck.
  9. Hello new to the forum, so giving it a try. First off I have a 03 Chevy Silverado 2500hd 4x4 with the 6.0L in it. Has 180000 miles on it. Been having a faint whinning noise under the front of it in the morning right at the torque converter, goes away when warms up, but also been having a hard shift when going into Passover gear, when in a hard pull or pulling trailer up hill.But only does it going into passover. On saying all this got to looking at trucks history on car fax found that Mr Transmission had replaced the torque converter. So called a buddy of mine who works at another transmission shop and told him everything and he said sounds like they used wrong torque converter for my truck. Said need check it, but have never got around to it, due to health issues. Just been not pulling with it and not running it hard.Well went on for a year now and when got in my truck last week drove 30 miles that day came home parked it. Went back out that night go to town and started it made a loud clank sound (like a gear or chain breaking) from under truck right in same spot where been hearing whinning noise. Sounded like metal on metal grinding after that. I turned it straight off was ran for no more then 2 mins. When try start it again the lights just dimmed. So thought starter, to cold, it raining fix it tomorrow.Well next morning same thing. Took starter off tested good. Came back home hooked chain to truck pulled up hill. Started looking over everything, put bar on crank and nothing wouldn't move motor locked up. Never had problem with truck oil pressure or nothing, have always serviced it, just that whinning. Question is does it sound like locked up motor or can the torque converter be locked up keeping it from turning? Any help or advise would be great.
  10. My 2016 Sierra 2500HD has 176,000 miles on it already and recently started eating parts. The latest part to fail was the reductant tank heater (DEF Heater). Upon cold start the check engine light came on with code P21DD. After a little reading I learned that this can result in “Limp Mode”. I was in the middle of nowhere in Northern Wyoming. Not cool! I drove down to Denver and replaced it that week. I shot this video of the repair.....
  11. Anyone have issues with shifting between 2nd to 3rd and the truck revs up about 750rpm, or 1000 when towing then catches? Dealer told me it is normal but it has been progressively getting worse over time. Never did it when first bought it but started around 10,000 km doing it weekly where now at 60,000 km does it multiple times daily. Warmer weather does cause this to occur more often and harsh. Brand new transmission as well installed which never made a difference. Doesn't seem right to me as you can really feel when towing the stress on that shift. Wondering to the crazy flare up when under load would cause a bent engine rod recently around this transmission b.s.
  12. Hey guys so I have a 2019 Silverado 1500LD with a 3.42 rear end with 11k on the clock. I've been noticing that my engine or coolant temp goes passed 210F but when it hits the next 1/8 gauge stick it goes back down passed the middle mark to 190°F. Is that normal for 7000 pounds uphill towing in 95°F weather. Talking about the 5N grapevine in Cali for those who know the climb.

  15. I just bought a 2010 Silverado LTZ 4x4 last Thursday and a few days ago it started leaking oil, and now I noticed it smokes from the engine bay on startup. It's not a lot of smoke, but it smokes on startup and smells like something is burning and then a few seconds later it'll stop. I opened up my engine bay and it looks like it is coming from the passenger side exhaust manifold, maybe a worn exhaust gasket? I'm not sure. It is white smoke, and there is a little bit of white smoke coming from the exhaust as well. It's hardly noticeable from the exhaust, but when looking in the engine bay you can clearly see it. If anyone has any ideas what this could be please help me out.
  16. My Suburban was suddenly overheating whilst driving it. Does anybody know if the '07 Chevy Suburban LT have an electric fan? However, I do know that my '07 Silverado (VortecMax edition) has an electric fan.
  17. It’s winter here so I went out yesterday to start my truck and the battery was dead. I put it on a trickle charger for about 7 hours, boosted it up “charger said 90%” when I took it off. I went to start my truck and it fired up immediately, my wipers turned on (to brush some snow off) and radio was playing. I turned it off then went to turn it back on it again fired right up easily then within seconds it slowly shut off. It sounded like something (a pump maybe) was still running while I had my key in (not sure exactly what it was). Read some things about changing a spark plug ? I will try this any other ideas of how to fix this ? Please help
  18. My 5.3 2014 - Silverado makes a clattering noise while running/idling in park. Dealer affirmed "hearing it" saying may be "injector" noise. Advised to put some more miles on it and then bring it back in. They would compare it to another 2014 running/idling at that time. I know my 2010 was much quieter running/idling in park. Friend of mine (Ford guy) pointed the noise out to me when I stopped bye to "show off" my new ride. Embarrassed!!!!!
  19. Hey guys, I want to work on my truck and upgrade it but i dont know what i should do. What are some things you have done to your engine and drive train to enhance performance and add durability? *I drive a 2014 LTZ 5.3
  20. Just finished up with this and would appreciate any feedback...took about 3 days, alot of sanding and modifying. I ordered vision 55 and BF Goodrich tire, should be here by the 20th. Also a 3" level for the front. Hopefully purchasing a CAI this week. Thanks! Rob
  21. I just bought a 2014 silverado crew cab last week. I noticed a minor shake in the engine while idling (not 100% of the time). Ive felt this in older trucks that Ive owned but figured a brand new truck wouldnt do this. My question is, is this normal to feel this? if so, at what point does normal idle shakes turn into some i should be concerned about? I was under the impression that i shouldnt feel any shakes (minor or not). I have set up a appointment with my dealership, but i want to be prepared when i go in. Also, Im hearing a noise like a belt noise coming from the engine especially when i and parked in a drive through next to a wall. Should i be hearing any ticks form belts? Am i being too picky? Any help would be great Jason
  22. I’m looking for any information on swapping gen3 5.3 With a gen4 controller (I want to use the 6L80e transmission.) I know the knock sensors are in the valley cover and it has the 24x reluctor and 1x cam sensor. I’ve heard it is possible to relocate the knock sensors to where they are on gen 4 block and swap reluctors and cams to work with the gen 4 controller, does anyone have any experience with actually doing so?
  23. I developed this in my 2003 Silverado at about 36k and ended up trading it off. Anyone still running their GM 5.3L with a pronounced engine slap with higher mileage? Any long term negative effects?
  24. Two easy ways to turn off the engine auto start system in the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 since they do not give you an off switch here's the video link let me know if you have any questions
  25. Hey everyone, I have a 2014 Sierra with the 5.3L, I really don't like posting on the forums for issues because it can give a bad representation of what is generally a good vehicle. My truck never really exhibited any of the usual issues like the vibration but it has had a couple small fixes here and there. Moving seat, rusting frame, etc. this time I just wanted to give everyone the heads up. Well a couple months ago I was driving and the oil pump failed. It took 2 weeks to fix. When it happened I was pretty concerned about any possible damage it caused but the dealer said it looked ok. Fast forward to last week. Merging onto the highway, heard a pop and lights came on everywhere. Got it to the dealer, lifters collapsed on a cylinder. I was without my truck all last week as they fixed that issue. This sunday, less than 60 miles after I picked it up, I went to accelerate in town and heard the same pop but this time it wouldn't even move if I gave it throttle. Towed it down to the dealer and they finally looked at it yesterday. This time they are ordering me a brand new engine. Thankfully I still have powertrain warranty but this is a major disappointment and honestly I don't even trust the truck anymore. What would your recommendations be? Sell it, trade it, keep it and run it into the ground?
