  1. I found it from amazonLaunch CReader 3001,here shows $24.99 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CH4D68Q/Launch Launch X431 DIAGUN IV,here shows $549 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072FHLYRY/ That price is big difference,how to choose it ?
  2. Just got a rock chip on my windshield and am wondering if anyone has had this sort of thing repaired by a glass installer/repairer such as Safelite. Am curious as to what the end result was and what it looked like after the repair. I don't want the chip to develop into a major crack with winter coming on by moisture getting in the chip and freezing.
  3. Hey everyone. So I was cruising a rural freeway yesterday and the guy in front of me decides to hit the brakes and then throw on his blinker and immediately hit the shoulder before the turn lane begins. He kicks a block of broken asphalt up at me. I saw it coming and actually ducked. It left a triple chip in the window, not exactly in my line of vision but close. It is not deep and does not appear like it has or will crack anything. Its just the surface layer. So my question is- should I just get one of those adhesive repair kits to fill the 3 little chips? (I've done it before on older vehicles. I can buy one for like $10 online) Or is the repair pointless and I should just ignore it and wait for the inevitable crack and full window replacement down the road? could be weeks, could be years, but I know this glass won't last the life of the truck. I tried to search for windshield chips and nothing came up, so just looking for pros and cons to the self-repair job. Thanks.
  4. Hi I'm brand new here but I've been a frequent snooper but I've finally come to a problem I can't find discussed before. The other day while driving my check airbag light came on it comes and goes but never stays for more than a minute. So thinking it had to be a sensor I went to oriellys and had my error codes checked only to reveal much more problems than I expected. The codes were: p0237(which I have had sinse I replaced my fuel pump so I think it's just faulty especially because the fuel gauge hasn't been right either i got another replacment I haven't had the time to install though),P0480,P0463,P0455,P0332,P0327,C0040,C0035,U1041, I think it pulled up 14 total codes but many were duplicates I think he said. my truck a SCSB 4.8 with the work trim 2005 model and just under 145,000 miles The oriellys guy suggested it may be a failing ECU and after a little research I'm thinking he may be right but I'd just like to see if any of y'all might have some ideas. Also the lights flicker like they did before I replaced my alternator and the voltage jumps around on the needle like crazy but I think I may have just picked up another faulty part butluckily that can be replaced under warranty. Other than the flickering lights the truck doesnt show any obvious signs of problems. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated needless to say it ruined my evening yesterday hah
  5. rust hole gone

    From the album random

    My paint job is horrifying.
  6. Already my tailgate assist feature does not work. It turns out a hinge is bent and/or wore out after 20k. Tomorrow I'll I'll install new parts. Looks like I'll need a star bit to Remove old hinge wondering it's size?. I Like the feature so got.new parts. I also Learned that paying 125.00 was a bIt much now that I see the parts. Surely do Think somebody would do Better ordering on-line. Unless you just want to Support your local dealer I Reported the malfunction to the Dealer at last oil change. They said it was a no go on my warranty claim. And then sold me these two parts. Gm# 23439650 and gm# 229669

  8. I'm from the mid missouri area, i was raised mostly on chevys but i have a love for all things truck, unfortunately i'm having some huge issues now that i'm back in a GM after being with dodge for a few years lol If i'm in the wrong area posting i'm sorry, please direct me to the correct place. I have a 2012 gmc sierra, i've had it little less than a year. When i bought this truck the previous owner had an "autopage alarm system" installed. not a big fan but thought "if it isnt broke dont fix it". Let's just jump ahead to the problem. periodically when i try to start the truck NOTHING happens for the most part. doesn't try to crank, sometimes the gauges flicker on and off, most of the time it starts throwing warning alarms for needing service on the 4x4, the traction control, a several other things. if you fight with it long enough it will start but once it starts that first time after the issue, my actual gauges don't work at all but if you shut it back off and start it again she will run fine for another few days maybe even a week or so. Now i messed around with a few things myself and just for a lack of time i dropped it off a chevy dealer. they tell me the autopage alarm is the problem, have it put in valet mode and they say that it should be 100% fine for the time being to run that way and thats all thats wrong i need it removed. of course it's not, so i have them remove it entirely. they say drive it for a week and let's see. of course problem still exists. so they say the autopage alarm has fried and taken some innocent bystanders with it. Replaced the BCM, Ignition, a couple relays (don't remember which ones specifically at this moment) re programmed the truck and the full removal of the Autopage alarm included pulling out the splices re soldering the wires and shrink tubing the wires. ( I checked to make sure of that last part) so it runs great for a week then of course i have it fully loaded down and it doesn't start this weekend. read on another forum how the starter getting moisture in it this and that will cause it to not try to start. replaced the starter. Runs great for saturday and sunday. monday morning nothing again. i have combed every wire i can get to cannot find loose wires or bad connections or even dirty connections anywhere. I am at my wits end with this truck. I hate to see it go but i cannot just keep throwing money at it until something works if it ever does. Surely someone has heard of this problem and been down this road to tell me where to look.
  9. So the razor thin paint that is on these 2014/16 trucks, is it easy to repair? I don't seem to think there is much of a clear coat either. I have a pea sized CHIP on my door and several around the wheel wells with only 10k miles. Hand washed never car washed. I guess I'm hoping to learn how to touch up paint. I have the emerald green paint. It was a special color option. And the paint chip sticks out cause it's white underneath. Love the color, but I don't see the paints beauty lasting at this rate. Any tips or products that I can use for paint chips and scratches? Gm offer a touch up kit? Im tired of bitching an moaning and want to just do something about. Would love to hear some suggestions or links to "how to" videos on the subject.
  10. I have a 2014 LT Silverado 5.3 litre, Sport Edition, with approx 80,000 miles. Today I noticed a pool of black, sticky substance below the right, rear of the truck. I looked under the vehicle, and found black splatter marks all over. The viscosity thickens as it dries. After cleaning the underside, I think was able to find the leak. It is coming from the front joint on the leaf springs. Forgive my ignorance, I do not know a lot about auto repair, and that is the best way I can describe the problem. None of my gauges are signaling that there is an issue. It might be helpful to know that approximately 2 weeks ago, I ran over a metal ladder on the freeway, which blew out my tire. But, I didn't notice any other damage. I have attached some pictures. Can anyone tell me what the problem is, cause, how to fix, is it a diy project, etc?? Thank you, This is my first ever post. I'm not even sure that I am doing this correctly.. I apologize in advance Pics 1, 2, 3 - (Leak 1-3) - Leak from leaf spring joint Pics 3 and 4 - Just showing splatter marks from leak Pics 5, 6, 7, and 9 - Different angles of the leak Pic 8 - Overview of leaf springs
  11. I goofed up

    So I was driving back from the electronics store and didn't know how to get back home. So I decided to use my GPS. Well, while looking at the GPS, I rear ended someone in a 2006 Silverado. The rear bumper was damaged but that was it, everything else is fine. I don't have a picture of the damage, so I will describe it. The rear bumper was pushed down at an acute angle. The plastic (under the license plate) slightly detached on the left side. The license plate was slightly pushed in. Since I don't have insurance I have to pay out of pocket to fix it. How much will it cost to replace it?
  12. I've had everything replaced and repaired physically to my 1998 Silverado such as fuel pump, tank, sending unit. My fuel gauge is still vibrating (fluttering.) I pulled my cluster out as I want to try and replace the stepper motor for the fuel gauge, however when I pulled the cluster out, I am not comfortable trying to pull the the actual panel out from the gauges itself. Seems as if it is glued down somehow. Any info or ideas on what to do next will be much appreciated, thanks.
  13. Enjoy! Here's a copy of the 2007-2009 GM/GMC factory service manual for trucks. It covers trouble shooting and advice on what and how to repair/rebuild everything with torque specs. 4.3L engine to 6.6L trucks with everything form bumper to bumper... https://www.dropbox.com/s/rflvemxjpqfc4h4/Gmc_Sierra_Service_Manual_Repair_Manual_Fsm_2007-2009_Download.zip?dl=0
  14. Today Chevrolet released an info-graphic that points out six of the ways that GM engineers designed the Silverado to be more cost effective to repair. Yes, this announcement is timed perfectly to scare Ford F-150 shoppers into thinking aluminum repairs will cost them time and money, but the truth is the Ford F-150 and many other commonplace vehicles have used aluminum body panels for a decade or more. Here are the six things Chevy thinks makes the Silverado easier to repair than competitors' trucks: Front Frame Rail Section Chevy says the leading section of its from frame rails may be removed or repaired making it easier to deal with frame damage. Structural Front Fenders Chevy designed the front fenders to unbolt in one larger piece, rather than an outer skin and inner supporting piece. This makes font end damage faster and simpler to work on. Bond-On Body Panel Procedures Rather than weld, some outer panels can be repaired using construction adhesives. Pre-prepared roof panels Chevy pre-drills holes for studs and accessories on its repair roof panels saving repair time. One-Piece Body Side Outers Chevy said in its announcement "If damage occurs to the outer panels of the cab, technicians can order a complete body side outer, shipped as a single, complete assembly, allowing technicians to cut out and replace only the damaged area instead of the entire assembly." Flexible Bed Repair Options Chevy designed its pickup beds so that owners can repair just the bed or bed box sides. Not all repairs require a full bed box replacement.
  15. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 3/23/2015 Having recently toured a large Chevrolet repair facility in Mass., this writer can personally attest to the fact that GM does design its vehicles so that accident repair costs will be minimized. The owner of the repair facility showed me how GM's front and rear clips on many vehicles have been simplified, and made less expensive so that repairs are not only less costly, but faster for the repair shop, thereby putting you back on the road in your own vehicle sooner.

  16. Has anyone had problems like mine. Dealer (Reliable Chevrolet in Albuquerque,NM) does not take responsibility for the repair work. I explained my a/c control head goes out after thought to be repaired. I tried small auto shop prior to and they also thought they had it fixed. At least they refunded my money. I did explain this to the assistant service manager and they took on the job. Day 1 - told me the repair is done and wanted to keep the vehicle to make sure. Day 2 - Called them and was told I needed a new a/c control head and labor cost (tried to charge me the diagnostic cost as well) of almost $600. I approved thinking they got it figured out and good to go. Day 3 - Went in to pay and they said no, needs at least 4-6 hrs work to fix. Cost would then escalate to over $1000 (estimate to take out the dash). Am I wrong in thinking they need to take responsibility for their work at some point and finish the repair at their cost? The owner called me and took no responsibility and said electrical problems are hard to fix sometimes. Needless to say to get my truck, I paid 1 hr diagnostic charge, cost for a/c control head, and shop fees. He reminded me that I got a new actuator at no cost and something else. I never received a call asking for approval of those items. Any thoughts on this. Are my expectations too high?
  17. Hello Fellow Chevy Truck Drivers, I have had my 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT 4x4 Z71 5.3L V8 since new. Since then I have replaced all tires with new Goodyear Assurance TripleTred tires in September of last year (2012). I also had brake fluid changed and the back drums and pads serviced. Recently, my brakes in the front (sounds like both) squeak when I apply them to come to a stop. Please note though that they start squeaking about halfway in my commute to work which is about 1 hour in length or 42 miles one way. The area I live in his hilly but not too bad. I live in the Piedmont area of NC. I do not tow anything nor do I drive "like I stole it", at least not in a while since I haven't volunteered with a fire dept. since 2003. I thought about just going ahead and changing my brake pads on the front but I am hung on the subject of what brand to use and ceramic or not. Any help or suggestions or ideas about what is going on and what course of action I should take would be greatly helpful. Thanks in advance. Ricky
  18. So earlier today much to my chagrin noticed about 3 or 4 small hail dings on my hood that probably came from a storm we had about a week ago. Does anyone know of DYI way to get rid of them? They're annoying the hell outta of me, but I don't want to spend the money to fix them since the cost to repair them would probably be less than my insurance deductible. Ill try to get pics up of them later its too sunny for them to show in a picture right now.
