  1. Hey guys and gals I was hoping y’all could answer a question of mine. I currently own a 2019 Silverado trail boss with the 5.3 and 6 speed transmission. A mechanic told me the transmission is a ticking time bomb if I do any performance mods. Such as a cam swap and tune. So I explained my plan for the future. Cold air intake, flow master exhaust, headers, tune and cam swap. He said if I do any of the big changes to the engine the tranny may go out. The reason why is because the stock transmission was only made to handle the stock HP and TQ. Have any of y’all had an issue like this after some big performance mods?
  2. This weekend someone slammed my passenger door probably to hard in my opinion. Not sure if this is the cause of the problem but the issue did start soon after. The Window and mirror lost power first intermittently, now completely. I checked the fuse and also didn’t see anything obvious as far as wires being loose or broken from the harness. Any suggestions or recommendations for a fix would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Hello new to this site. was wondering if anyone had done a power antenna conversion on an express van, and if so where did you buy it? thanks.
  4. I like the fact that my 6.2 has lots of power and actually does get good gas mileage. I can run 65/70 and easily get 23-25mpg. I’m about to upgrade tires and looking for recommendations. I know I’ll lose some mpg and possibly low end power, but I don’t want to turn my beast of a truck into a turd. I currently have stock 275/55r20 (31.9x10.8) on stock “snowflake” rims with Bilstein 2” strut/shock upgrade. 3 tire sizes I’m interested in: 275/60r20 (33x10.8) 285/55r20 (32.3x11.2) 295/55r20 (32.8x11.6) If I had my way, I’d throw a 305/55r20 on there but I know I’d kill my power. I know this because I have 295/55r18 on my Ford and I ended up doing a gear swap from .373 to .456 to bet my power back. I’m in the real estate business. I buy and sell farm and recreational land so I put lots of hwy miles on this GMC yet still need a tire to get me in and out of places on the farm and pull a tractor when I need to. I have trucks to mudbogg in, looking for practicality here. Really hoping to to hear from guys with 6.2s. Thanks in advance.
  5. I have a Go Rhino sport bar in transit, I believe I will be purchasing (5) Q Series LED pod lights from Rigid Industries. I'd love to see how others have ran their conductors for power, fuses, disconnects, and cab / interior switch setups. Any and all pictures , and information are greatly appreciated. Youtube and forum searches have been mostly a bust. Interested in what lights you all are running? 2016 Silverado Z71 LT Crew Cab
  6. Had a 2018 Sierra 2500 for a loaner while my 1500 was having warranty work done. We got a couple 0 degree days here in St Louis during the polar vortex and the 2500 went into limp mode and wouldn't allow me to go above 25 mph. CEL came on and a message popped up "Reduced Engine Power". I was 30 miles from the dealer that loaned it to me and they sent someone out and gave me a 2019 Silverado 1500. Next day they towed the 2500 back and found the diesel fuel had "gelled" from the cold temps. Curious, is this common in diesels? I let it warm up for at least 5 minutes before driving as I know diesels need a little more warm up time than gas engines. How could it idle and drive up to 25 mph with the fuel "gelled" as the dealer put it? Didn't shake or sputter, just had the rpm limiter kick in at 25 mph.
  7. I apologize if this is the wrong forum but I didn't see a forum for my year model. I need some experienced help if possible. I have a 2009 Yukon XL 6.0L, low millage.. No codes have been thrown. Battery and alternator are good. The key is a normal key I think, no RFID stuff. As normal, when you stick the key in the switch it chimes and the display and gauges come on when the switch is turned.. then it cranks. I have a progressing issue where I insert and turn the key that nothing happens...no chime, no gauges light up, no crank. almost like it has no battery... After several turns of the key everything comes to life and it cranks fine. Here are a few more symptoms. I have seen the touch screen radio display flicker while driving... Another time I turned to crank, the starter engaged, and it instantly died a second later like you pulled a plug. Also normally, when the switch is cut off the radio plays a little longer until the door is opened, the interior lights come on, and the headlights stay on for a few minutes. When I parked last night and cut the switch off, the radio just died, the headlights cut off, and the interior lights did not cut on when I opened the door. I even pressed on the remote unlock / lock keys, rear access open.. nothing. It was like the battery was unplugged. I got back in, put the key in the switch and nothing.. About 2 minutes later I tried again and it cranked up as if nothing happened. The remote control worked as well as everything else. I thought it may be the switch, but when I switch the vehicle off the interior lights wont work, the remote quit, inside lock buttons quit..etc... Kinda ruled the switch out maybe? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to start buying random parts to try and fix.. Thank you for your time..
  8. I just bought a 1991 Chevy C70 Kodiak C7H042 6.6L 403 CUI Diesel in amazingly great condition. I am now the 3rd owner of this dump truck. The first owner took great care of the vehicle, everything thing appears to be well maintained and no shade tree work. All the parts, wiring and accessories appear to be original and well maintained. However, the second owner bought this truck and never used it. It has sat in a field for about four years. To get to the point, I completely serviced the truck and replaced the batteries, checked the fuses, grounds, relays and I have absolutely no power to the truck. No interior or exterior lights and no lights on the instrument panel. What could be the issue?
  9. My 2015 Silverado 2500 radio has stopped working. Seems to not get signal from ignition when to activate. Back up camera works fine. Radio will suddenly turn on sometimes or if CD is pushed in or fuze is pulled and reset. No bluetooth connectivity. Any thoughts....Dealership wants $150 to diagnose and $150 to reprogram.
  10. Hey guys, Hoping to get some input on this as its a little frustrating. My key fob and lock and unlock button on the drivers door do not work at all. I have an 09 Sierra, and have already replaced the lock button as that was the easiest piece to eliminate. There is power to the button, and when i push both the lock and unlock buttons i can hear clicking from the secondary fuse panel. Someone has suggested that i check out the relay, but i am unable to locate and find said relay. All the fuses have been checked and rechecked, and are all in good shape. Dont really want to take it to a shop for this as i can likely do it myself. Thanks in advance Elyse
  11. 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 duramax The two power outlets on the dash and the one under the console have no power I have checked the fuses and wires and they are good I don’t know what it could be any help would be great thanks
  12. 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
  13. I have a 2015 Silverado 2500hd gas, 6.0 My truck has 30,000 miles. I have always gotten 16-18 mpg on the highway (70mph). The last week, I can't get above 9mpg on the highway (70mph), even going downhill. Also, may be my imagination, it seems that I have lost some power. The truck feels like I am pulling a trailer or have a heavy load in the back. Any ideas?

  16. I drive 2000 Chev Silverado 4wd ext cab LS edition. I bought 1999 GMC Sierra SLT with power and heated memory seats and the centre console.. I'm looking to swap all this over.. am I going to run into wiring issues or what? I've got the whole Harness that goes into the doors and into the seats.

  18. Brand new, has less than 700 miles ad I started noticing oil pooling on the ground. Though it may be a loose oil filter but when I got underneath I noticed drips of oil coming from the front, driver side where the cantilevering arm connects. You can see in the attached image a small oil drop getting ready to drip. Anyone experience this? Simple fix? Is the whole part of that assembly faulty?

  20. I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place and I can move it if someone wants me to. Today I drove into work and everything was fine but when I left I noticed my radio took a second to come on. Then I found out my windows won't roll down and when I press the button to roll it down the radio turns off. I opened the interior fuse panel and tried to figure out the problem but couldn't I did find out though my windshield wipers aren't working either. Also there's this blue wire that's not connected to anything but I can't find out what it is or what it goes to. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  21. These DL3 mirrors and harnesses were just removed from my 2015 Silverado 1500 LTZ when I upgraded to towing mirrors. Mirrors and harnesses in like new condition (truck only had 2200 miles). Power fold, heated glass, turn signal, puddle lights, driver side spot and driver auto dim. Asking $550 shipped from zip 31211 to the lower 48. GM Part Numbers: LH Mirror: 23180074 RH Mirror: 23499472 LH Harness: 23171577 RH Harness: 23171579
  22. Hopefully someone on here can help me out. I've tried just about everywhere else and nobody else seems to have this problem. My 2000 Suburban is having problems with it's power door locks. Only the driver's side works. I originally thought it was the actuators, but I replaced the passenger side one and the problem hasn't changed at all. Then I replaced the driver's door control switch, but that didn't help either, although it did fix another one of my problems. It seems like the actuators aren't getting enough power and some only seem to be getting power one way (unlock only), while others make noise both ways. Is there a good way to test the other actuators with a multimeter? I'd replace them all but none seem to come with the extra sensor or whatever it is and I also don't think that's the problem. Thanks for any help.
  23. I have a stock 2008 Silveardo Crew cab LT, with a 5.3l motor. Truck is currently getting a used motor installed in it due to knocking, oil pressure, and oil lose (fun right). Well once I get a new motor (used) with 50k miles on it I was planning on dropping like 3k of parts into it to make it faster. My only concern is my transmission, will it hold up? Upgrades: Cams Headers Intake Injectors exhaust Tune All on a stock tranny, is this possible or will this be a quick way to find my truck in the shop?
  24. I have a 98 Silverado z71 with 5.7 350. The check engine light came on giving p0405 code. (low egr voltage). I have replaced the egr and nothing changed. I tested the wiring with the egr unplugged and it tests fine, but if I plug the egr in I lose the 12 volts. If I unplug it I have 12 volt. Now that's with my ohm meter. If I put a load on it, ie hook a headlight to it, it wont power it. I have traced all of the wires back to the ecm. They all are fine. I even unplugged the wiring from ecm and put 12volts from the battery thru the 12volt wire going to the egr and the wire is fine. A friend who is a mechanic by trade said it could be the ecm. I replaced the ecm today.(not a brand new one. one from a used parts/salvage yard). I got the truck to run and the check engine light came on within a few minutes. Same as before, with the ohm meter I have 12 volts going to the egr with the plug unplugged, as soon as I plug it in it goes to 0.03 volts. I even bought another egr thinking it could possible be a bad/shorted one. I'm at a total loss. any help would be great. Thank you!!
  25. hello everyone I have a 97 GMC Sierra with a 305 and electronic shift trans it has a lot of issues that I'm trying to sort out first of all on cold start it idles super low (200- 400 rpms) for a few seconds and then picks up and shudders and shakes for a minuet then goes to normal idle once it warms up it stars to drop to low rpms (any where between 100 to 400) and dies out when I rev it it revs super slow and hesitates when I go to drive it it falls on its face on take off it kinda cuts out at first but slowly and I mean slowly picks up speed all the while it back fires and slightly lunges now once I get moving the trans doesnt want to shift until I let off the gas no matter the throttle position and the speedometer jumps around like crazy and never shows my correct speed the brake and ABS light are on sometimes they go off but normally on look at the videos to see how bad it is any help would be great so far I have replaced the plugs and wires cleaned the cap replaced the button and the TPS cleaned the MAF sensor and cleaned the trans speed sensor videos:
