  1. 2017 sierra A/T crew cab I have the most annoying tick noise over bumps, coming from the b pillar behind my left ear and it is driving me brick house, I've pulled at the trim off put my hands on everything made sure everything is tight, stuff rags in between contact points, I've run out of ideas, anyone have an guidance for me, I'm a ex gm technician of 5 years , I know what I'm doing but of course my own truck baffles me..per usual any new bulletins or tsbs?
  2. 02 Sierra 2500hd 8.1 turn key to first click and starter cranks over engine starts and starter stays engaged.
  3. I have a 99 Silverado 1500 with the floor shift transfer case. I’ve been having an issue with my 4wd fuse on the interior fuse panel. Whenever I turn the key the fuse instantly blows wether I’m in 2wd or 4wd hi and low. I’ve seen around that that fuse is for the front axle actuator so I looked around and couldn’t find any obvious shorts, could it be a short in the motor itself?
  4. Now that owners are taking delivery of the new 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, I thought a quick reference guide to common routine maintenance items would be beneficial to us all.

  5. This past Sunday here in Conway NH we had a really good snowstorm now my plow truck is a 1988 Chevy Silverado 4x4 turbo 400 transmission now during that storm the wires for the transfer case etc got wrapped up on my front axle ripped them all off now I have been looking everywhere for a easy wiring diagram to fix it anyone have a wiring diagram or tell me how to wire it correctly
  6. About to install a 2" motofab under strut leveling kit on monday, but am very concerned with torque specs. I can't find the exact torque specs for everything I need, and I don't even know how important it is for everything to be torqued exactly to specs. It's a 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ, 4x4. How important is it to be precise when torqueing? Does anyone know where to find all the exact torque specs for my make and model? Has anyone ever done one before, and can you provide insight? Thanks.
  7. I have a 2001 Silverado 2500 HD, wondering if I had a body control module issue, my heated seats don’t work, my driver side seat only worked half way i.e. The lumbar support works but the lean and moving the seat functions do not, along with my keyless entry not working but my power locks do work. Any ideas?
  8. Rotor and hub assembly removal/replacement 2015 silverado 1500 LT 4x4 Long time lurker, first time poster I was in the process of changing the brakes and rotors, which was going fine until I got around to the passenger front. I get the caliper bracket off and get the brakes out of the way. Then that’s when i did it, I snapped off the tip of a t-30 torx bit in the head of the brake rotor torx bolt. I’ve tried everything that I can thing of to get it out. Ive tried to drill a small 1/16” hole in the center of the broken bit to have an edge to work with. I’ve tried hand impact tools to just work around it and get the bolt out with no luck. I’ve watched a bunch of good videos, but had no luck so far. That’s bring me to a possible ‘solution,’ as I have to change out the hub assembly,Moog 515160, anyway. I’m think that I could just remove the spindle nut, and the hub hardware bolts and that should release both the rotor and hub as one piece? Thanks in advance for any thoughts, info, guidance! I’ll get some pics to add tomorrow in the daylight.
  9. hey im new to the forum and wanted to know if there are any other towing mirrors available for a 2017 GMC Canyon other than clearview. Thanks!
  10. I was washing my '93 S10 when all of a sudden I see this bolt on my driveway. It's more of a stud with a totally round head. It's too thin to be a lug nut stud/wheel stud. I believe it came off of the right side of the truck due to its location on the driveway. What could this be??? Any ideas appreciated. P.S. It COULD have came off of my dad's 1967 F100. I will be posting it on the Ford forum as well. ANY ideas appreciated and if you know what this is please let me know!
  11. I am looking at the Readylift 66-3086 2.25" FRONT LEVELING KIT W/ CONTROL ARMS - GM 1500 TRUCK / SUV 6-LUG 2017-2018 https://www.readylift.com/2-25-front-leveling-kit-w-control-arms-gm-1500-truck-suv-6-lug-2017-2018.html For my 2017 Silverado 1500 LT with factory 17 inch aluminum wheels and 255/70R17 tires. After talking to the company, they said that I may need a 1/2 inch wheel spacer for the front so the control arms don't rub on the wheels. Is this true or is this something to try and get me to buy? The main reason I am looking at replacing the upper control arms is because I have an aftermarket heavy duty bumper with grill guard and it weighs around 200Lbs. That worries me with the factory STAMPED control arms it has now. If I need spacers, what spacer is best and cheap? Would I have to modify the studs? What else would I have to do so it doesn't rub? Thanks!
  12. Anyone else with a new 2014 Sierra having an issue with the frame rusting and paint/wax flaking off? I have 3000 kms and it looks horrible. I also own a 2011 Canyon service truck with 105kms and the frame looks like new. So irriating as my Sierra is a beautiful truck aside
  13. 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!
  14. So I think someone is trying to steal my truck. For the second time in a couple of months, I've discovered my window trim pulled up out of the channel right above the door handle. Unfortunately, my truck won't fit inside my garage since I added the lift. Is there any way I can prevent them from using such a tool to open my door?
  15. I need to replace my fuel tank on my 2006 Chevy Silverado Reg cab short bed 1500. I can not find a used fuel tank anywhere the has the two ports on either side of the fuel pump. Anyone have any idea of where I can get a used one?? Also, why does every other tank I see online only have one port next to the fuel pump, not two like mine?!?!
  16. Hey guys, I have a 2017 Silverado High Country and I installed a 6in Fabtech lift with 35in nitto tires back in September 2017 and since then I've been having issues with my cruise control disengaging/turning off at anything above 69mph. When I'm traveling above 69mph, cruise control will turn on and illuminate on the dash, but it wont engage or lock on. Even when I have the cruise set at 65mph and I try to increase the speed to 70mph, it'll immediately cut off/disengage. I took it to the dealership around January 2018 and they told me since the truck has bigger/heavier tires, the computer is reading the wheels going slower than what it reads on the speedometer. They basically said I need to recalibrate the computer to read the new tire size. BUT, a friend of mine also said I could possibly need to re-gear to 4.56 since I'm running heavier tires, which could fix the cruise control cutting off. If anyone has experienced this issue, you help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.
  17. A/C Help

    The A/C belt in my 2004 Silverado 1500 4.8L snapped recently, and I believe it’s because one of the pulleys seized up. 2 days before the truck was making a relatively loud screech from the engine compartment at startup. The belt was a gator-type and installed on 12/10/17. I’m not an expert at engine repair, so what pulleys drive the A/C belt? And if one of them is truly seized, how do I properly fix it?
  18. Have noise coming from engine . Ideas ?
  19. Hi there! Man it's been a long time since I been on this site! That rusty 01 is long gone!! LOL Anyway, I have a dilemma, we just purchased a 2013 Yukon XL Denali (kind of a rushed purchase, figured I could deal with the moon roof, I was wrong). My question is, what can I do to get more head room in this thing? Are there any seat mods that can be done to give me a little more room? I am 6'3" and totally uncomfortable driving this beast! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  20. As the title says, can anyone in the Houston, TX area recommend me a place to have my AMP Powersteps installed or be willing to help me do them for some compensation and beer?? I was planning to do this myself but have been so busy I can't give 4hrs to stumble through this on my own.. 4Wheel Parts quoted me at $350 which seems a little steep for something that is simply bolted on, a harness run and plugged into the OBDII Port. Can anybody help me out??? Thanks, Lance
  21. 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.
  22. I need help finding a component for my fuel system. I dropped the gas tank in my 2005 GMC Sierra (because of hurricane harvey and the truck has sat for awhile) and found a 90 degree connector with a plug in it, that has a broken hose connection from what looks like a vent line on the rear of the tank. I cannot seem to locate this fitting anywhere, I've looked at autozone, rockauto, oreillys, and various GM parts dealers online with no luck. I've attached pictures of where it's broken. Do I even need this line? Could I plug it off? If anything I suppose I could tap a new fitting on somehow if push came to shove. Thanks in advance!
  23. Hoping to find someone who has owned or lifted or both a stock Silverado LS. I have yet to find anyone with experience or seen this exact lift. I am narrowed down to either a 5" with 33's or 7" with 35's. With how low it sits, is 5" going to be enough or will it still be very low compared to stock trucks nowadays? I'll be using the stock 16" wheels. How much will it affect the acceleration?
  24. Hey all! So, as y’all know I have a 2014 Silverado. I installed LED reverse and cargo bulbs a couple months ago but I noticed there’s interference, and I don’t know what to do to fix it. Calling all electricians out there that know what I could do to fix this. Open for any responses, suggestions, and solutions. Thanks, y’all!
  25. I have a1999 Silverado 2500 4x4 6.0 that I just got running again it has been sitting for 2 years because my girls dad was going through some rough time and didn't really care now 2 years later he is in no shape to be under a hood or on his back messing with the thing anyways I needed a vehicle and he said if I could get it running I could use it I went and bought a can of sea foam a 10gal gas can with gas and battery put everything in/on and it started right up like it was nothing I was like sweet since then witch was 2 days before this post ive don a oil change wit 10w30 Castrol edge high millage and k&n oil filter a much needed bath all new lights toped off dexcool, power steering, witch is leaking but the whole reason I was making this post was when I stop at nights 2 things happen AND ONLY SOMTIMES the gas peddles feels like its getting stuck when I go to APPLY presser but not on release and it idles funny but if I put it in natural and rev it the put it back in gear it will idle normal the rest of the time till the light turns green but at the next light it may or may not do it what do you think it could be
