I hope I’m not stirring a hornets nest here... I know there are a ton of Amsoil fans here, personally I use Mobil 1 for oil changes... haven’t made the time to change my transfer case and differentials on my 16 4wd... called a shop and quoted me $250 for all 3...and they use BG products...
1) is that a reasonable deal
2) is BG any good? (I’ve done some research, but can’t teally tell if they are sponsored or independent results...
thanks in in advance!
I just replaced the Transfer case encoder motor because it threw a code and my 4wd didnt work at all. Now only 4wd auto works and when i put it in 4hi it is like 2wd. When i select 4wd Low i can feel it in low gear but again it is like its in 2wd. Any suggestions? Thanks
I am sure this issue has been beat to death multiple times, but I cant find the answer.
I have a 2005 Silverado 1500 z71, I have had this issue for about 2 years now. the issue being that no matter what part I replace my 4wd wont reliably work.
here is a list of what parts have been replaced.
Drivers side wheel hub- twice
Passenger Side wheel hub- three times
Diff. actuator- twice
4 button switch on dash- once
Transfer case motor- once
So what is happening is, the dash will read service 4wd, i have taken it in to a shop where they have been replacing the parts, and i have come to the conclusion they are just throwing parts at it to find a fix. Every time they would replace a part it will work about 2-3 days but then give me the same service 4wd message. if i push one of the 3 4wd buttons on the switch the light will blink for a while then stop and it seems like it doesn't shift into 4wd. But i have crawled under the truck while someone else selects a 4wd button, I can hear and feel the transfer case changing into to 4wd mode. but the front diff actuator does not engage. I have checked and cleaned the ground wire under the drivers door twice but that doesn't seem to help. I am done throwing money at the shop to fix it, so this is my last resort.
any help or ideas is greatly appreciated,
I got a 2016 Lifted (6 inch) Diesel Colorado with a 6 foot bed at the end of October. Since then I ran into an issue where you can hear a knocking noise from the front end when you turn while its in 4WD. I took it to the dealer and they have been trying to fix the issue but its going on 6 weeks (they had it for 3 weeks trying to fix the remote start before that).
They thought they fixed it with a new axle, one CV (?), new fabricated spacers, and tilting the transfer case i think.. I got it down to the end of the service entrance and it made the noise again when I turned. What can it be?
Today they tried to buy me out by offering me a new trail boss (very base model) and I would have to pay more than I am now and not have the bells and whistles my current one has (if I ever get to drive it).
I’m not the handiest mechanic around so I ask you try your best to simplify your answers. First off, I have the four button 4wd and 4HI, 4WD Auto, and 4LO flash endlessly when I hit them, while 2HI stays solid. 4HI and Auto does nothing, no feeling or sound of engagement or anything, just flashes till I switch it. 4LO flashes but I feel and hear the clunk and it seems to have more torque. Any ideas where to start looking?
