  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. Hey Guys, I have a 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe PPV with a 5.3L LMG and a 6L80 Trans (MYC) looking to drop in a 6.2L L9H. As far as I understand it is a direct swap. Would I run in to any issues or codes as far as the L9H not having AFM/DOD? I plan on using the 5.3L PCM and having it re flashed to work with the 6.2 Or do I look for a L94 that has FlexFuel, VVT, AFM like the LMG does?
  4. My 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 lost all oil pressure, and then a little later engine shut off. Did not make any loud noises, It just died. When we went to restart it, we could here the starter engage, but the engine wouldn't turn over. So we had it towed, and the guy at the tow shop put a wrench on it and tried to turn it, but was unable to. We have done no further troubleshooting, this happened on January 1, 2018. We assumed it is seized. What I am wondering is what you guys think, is it likely that it seized or is something else more likely to be the problem? If it is seized what part would have seized up? And would it be better to rebuild the engine, or to put a new engine in it? The truck has about 200k miles on it, and ran perfectly before this happened. It is the new body style, btw.
  5. Hello! I am a new member from Michigan. I am pretty sure I have another account on this forum, but it's been a few years since I last logged in, and my email has changed, so I can't get into it. My former screen name was Pinky. I came to this forum several years ago prior to having the drive train swapped from my '93 Suburban 2500 to my '94. I got a lot of great advice & information here, and everything worked out well with that project. I have returned because I have a specific repair challenge, and I'm hoping that I can get some answers once again. My current challenge involves a (piece of junk) 2011 Chevy Equinox 2.4 liter (Ecotec). The engine is shot due to the excessive oil consumption issues that is very common with this vehicle. We would like to avoid encountering the same problem, once we replace the engine, so we'd like to find out what would be involved with retrofitting an engine from a newer model year that doesn't have this same issue. I spoke with a parts supplier who recommended trying to find out if it's possible to retrofit even a 2015 or 2016 into this vehicle. I know this involves changing additional parts that would not be required if we just did a direct swap, but we want to get away from the years that this engine had this problem. I just do not want to end up with an eternally on CEL because of incompatible emissions, etc... Lol. So, we need to make sure we do this correctly. My Equinox does NOT have the AUA option, was manufactured on 3/18/11, and has K as the 8th digit of the VIN. Please give me any info and suggestions you can provide. It's much appreciated! (We still owe on this vehicle, which is why we're putting time, $, and effort into repairing it. So, while setting it on fire or pushing it off a cliff have definitely crossed our minds, neither seems to be a viable option. LOL.)
  6. I have a 2012 silverado and my check engine light keeps coming off and on. The codes read are c0900- device 1 voltage high(history) c0899- device 1 voltage low(history) p0300- multiple misfire detected (History Mil) p0301- cylinder 1 misfire detected (confirmed) there is a slight rough idle on the truck, and I think that my gas mileage has decreased slightly Does anyone have any idea what my problem could be before I take it to a shop, or start replacing parts
  7. Hey guys! Hoping I can get some help on this...my truck out of nowhere started making this horrifying noise on startup, primarily during cold starts. I’m very concerned.
  8. New to forum so sorry if this topic has been discussed in detail already. Just bought a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 with the 6.2L. I wanted to get your advice and feedback around if a cold air intake is helpful to the engine for HP / TQ./ MPG and just better engine longevity? Any one add a CAI to a 2014-15 1500 with 6.2 if so what kind of gains / losses did you find? Pictures? Recommendations for which brand / model to go with for the Gm 6.2? Thank you,
  9. 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!
  10. Hi all, I have had my 2015 Silverado 5.3L Crew for less than a year, purchased February 2015. Currently, the truck has around 14800 miles on it, most of which are highway miles as I make frequent trips between Atlanta and Florida. Today on my way to work in Atlanta my truck just gave out on me power wise, no acceleration passed 40 mph. The check engine light came on and started flashing repeatedly which the Chevy site indicates that to mean there is a serious problem that needs immediate attention. Well I was a very short distance from the dealer near work so I just maintained my speed and tried not to let the truck shift gears. Once I got off the highway I had to come to a stop and experienced really rough idle and some hard knocking sounds. The truck did not however seem like it wanted to die out or stall on me. When the light turned green I pressed the gas and had very weak acceleration, the truck was hardly picking up speed and I couldn't tell what the trans was doing. Anyway, I got it around the corner to the dealer and dropped it off. I am hoping its just a computer module or something that gave out and started affecting things but it honestly seems more to me like a serious mechanical issue. Does anyone have any similar experiences or have any speculation into the issue? The transmission in this truck has always been the thing I liked least about it, sluggish shifts, not knowing what gear it wants to be in, hard shifts and knocking/dropping sounds. Any info or experiences would be appreciated. Thanks, Jeremy
  11. Need your help on this one! Trucks been poping o2 low voltage codes at me p0131 p0151 etc, so I replaced the 2 upstream ones and it's still givin me upstream o2 sensor codes! Symptoms are lack of power from mid range up and it seams to shift kinda funky somtimes
  12. Good reliable places that offer quality warrantied used engines. Any experience in buying used engines from places is appreciated. The engine that is in there now is a 6.0 L Vortec from 2005. Go
  13. Hey guys, It been few years now maintaining it... I have 2005 sierra 1500 z71 5.3L extended cab... I gotten it at 80,000 and now it at 182k, i have since replaced the alternator, water pump, coolant hose, flush the tranmission fluids, and now i noticed now it be getting hot while im idling and the oil pressure gauge will be low but when i am driving the oil pressure gauge goes back to middle and the coolant temp will go back to the middle instead being hot... it happen when im going through a stop like a traffic jam... it wouldnt last 5min without getting low oil pressure(although no alarm light) and high engine coolant temp (coolant warning light came on) reaching... i been racking my brain trying to figure it out what could it be... it same thing all over again, driving normal then come to a stop, a long stop then my oil pressure will dip low and then engine coolant will dip pass the 210 mark and get hot til if i am idle long enough it will flash coolant light on... i open the hood check the engine, hoses, coolant level is good, fan blowing, but still getting hot with no leaks or steams... i really love my truck i really need to resolve this asap... pls help???

  14. I have a new 2016 GMC Canyon and I am pissed! Yesterday on my way back from the first service to get my oil changed, i was left stranded, when the vehicle broke down due to the oil having leaked entirely from the engine. By the time I was able to safely stop the car, the engine was making a distinct metallic noise. I was left waiting in the heat (it was 95 yesterday) for almost two hours while Earnhardt GMC here in AZ tried to figure out what to do. Eventually a tow truck came and my truck was taken back for service. I was eventually told that the oil filter was not installed correctly leading to the engine being left with no oil. Today the Service Manager Joel called to say that here are no issues with the truck and that all is fine. I am not entirely convinced that this is the case and they did not offer to guarantee that the car will not have a problem in the future as a result of this. They told me that I can rest assured that all is well with my truck. I called GMC customer service as I was hoping that someone could advice if I can trust the advice I am receiving from the dealership is correct. I was told that I should go back to the dealership to seek that kind of reassurance and that in the words of Ruben, one of GM Senior Advisor, "this is not an issue for GM". I was really excited about my truck and in the space of less than 24 hours I have come to lose trust in Earnhardt and GM. What should I do? Do you guys think that the engine is shot? Or should I just be ok with it? Thank you for your advice! Joe
  15. When i first start the engin i can here it kick back on the starteur and breaks it over time, what could cause it to kick back ??
  16. 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
  17. "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

  19. At 1800 miles I noticed that my truck started or has been making this really annoying, high pitched squeak every time it switches from V4 to V8 on the highway. It almost sounds like a valve opens up when the cylinders reactivate and is driving me nuts!! I don't hear anything when it goes from V8 to V4. Unfortunately, I don't get to enjoy the "quiet cabin" GM advertised because of the squeaking. Has anyone else experienced this issue? I have the 5.3L V8 in a 2015 LT Crew Cab short box Z71
  20. My wife and I got this truck ( 2014 Chevy LT 4x4 with the 5.3 ) about a week ago , check engine light came on. Took it to my dealer and they said the Barometric Pressure Sensor went bad and replaced it. Tonight we got the same check engine light and on-star said it was the same problem as before. Any ideas here ? Thanks for the help.
  21. Hello all! Im new to the whole forum thing but at this point, ive become desperate. I have a 2008 silverado 2500hd gasser. i bought the truck maybe a year and a half ago and it has had a check engine light since the day i bought it, never really bothered me much and i just cleared the code temporarily to get it inspected in NJ. the problem hasn't become any worse. its just now becoming more and more of a hassle as the weather cools down. I have the code PO449 the truck also leaks a good amount of gas when you fill it up. maybe a cup? it leaks from the top of the tank and runs down both sides of the tank Ive read up on the code and many people blame either the gas cap, or the purge solenoid, or the evap valve or something like that. i replaced this part http://www.partsgeek.com/vrwkl6g-chevrolet-silverado-1500-vapor-canister-vent-solenoid.html?utm_source=nextag&utm_medium=pf&utm_content=dc&utm_campaign=PartsGeek+Nextag&fp=pp&utm_term=Chevrolet+Vapor+Canister+Vent+Solenoid in doing so, i ripped one of the lines going into the canister. the leak continued so i tried to RTV the hole that was caused, seemed to adhere just fine. (Let me also mention, the truck was totaled before i bought it and then was reconstructed. rear end accident. everything looks good now but I'm sure thats what caused this whole thing) so the Vapor Canister Vent Solonoid didn't fix the issue. i then decided i should try to lift the bed and look at the top of the tank, maybe find where this is coming from. the nuts that are welded onto the frame that the bed then bolts to are rusted and one snapped off, so for now, getting the bed off is kinda out of the question. i have to freeze frame shots of my system from when the Check engine light was triggered. please take a look and help me if you can, id really appreciate any help at this point. Thank you do much
  22. 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.
  23. I have had this problem for quite some time. I've been trying to narrow it down one test and one part at a time with no luck. It will occasionally drive great with no problems but other times it surges while accelerating and driving down the road. I've had the timing checked, replaced the spark plugs, replaced the wires a while back, replaced the EGR valve, and replaced the cap and rotor. The truck will idle fine except for the occasional rough idle in gear during the times the truck is running badly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
  24. Hey guys, So over the weekend I put a new (to me) transmission in my truck (2003 silverado 1500) upon finishing the job I went to start it up to start pumping the new fluid through, but the truck will not turn over. All lights, radio, ect.. come on, but the truck will not turn over. Also, even after I have pulled the key out, the front marker lights, rear running lights, and dash lights all will not shut off. There is a high pitched ringing coming from the engine compartment, which, along with the lights shuts off when I pull the fuse for "ECM B". Initially I thought this was the Park-Neutral safety switch, which was cracked while we were installing it. The only idea I have left is that there is a small wire that comes out of the harness and attaches to the back of the engine right behind the passenger side cylinder head that was broken while installing the dipstick, I cannot find any information about what this wire is for or where it is supposed to be attached. ANY help would be much appreciated!!!
  25. I have a 94 GMC Jimmy. A little background on my knowledge... I am still learning things, but still knowledgeable enough to not get yanked around like an idiot. I help diagnoses our vehicles problems and my boyfriend does the actual fixing. So our problem is tha our Jimmy has been running rough especially during warm up (until it is up to running temp all the way) and during idle. There is a hesitation like the power increases then drops. As well during this phase the engine shakes. Though upon reaching full warm up temp it diminishes to a minimum. Sometimes it is worse then other times on start up. I don't know if is a misfire, timing being off massively, a sensor (like the coolant temp sensor maybe), part of the fuel line (spider injectors). Please help. Trying to diagnose so we can fix it. Please and thank you!
