Hey all I'm wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar to my ordeal? So I have a 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3 V8. It only has 1500 miles on it and we just pulled our camper with it which only weighs 4500#. It pulls fine doesn't squat much and I use a weight distribution hitch. We took it to the campsite unhooked and I parked the truck. The next morning I started up the truck and the service engine light came on. After about 5-6 starts it cleared and is no longer on. It seemed to drive fine even when the check engine light was on. I'm wondering if me parking the camper going forward and reverse a few times made the gas mileage so bad it triggered the warning light?
2007 Silverado 5.3 V8 with AFM with 180,000 miles
Truck had lifter ticking sound and white smoke upon every start up which would go away after a few minutes, no check engine light
Replacement list :
- valve gaskets
- upgraded drivers side valve cover
- valve stem seals
- intake manifold gasket
- exhaust manifold gasket
- 8 new afm lifters
- 8 new non-afm lifters
- head gasket bolts
- engine coolant temperature sensor
- spark plugs
- spark plug wires
- fuel injectors
- water pump
- cam sensor
- crank sensor
After completion of engine reassembly no longer had white smoke upon start up and no ticking sound but flashing check engine light code p0300.
Code p0300 was for cylinder #1, #4, & #7
Moved coil packs between cylinder #1 and #2 to see if coil packs was bad but no change. Set engine at TDC before installing the rocker arms.
All bolts have been properly torque and no parts have been left unplugged or uninstall.
Any possible advice would be helpful
So I'm living out of my truck now while I save some funds to by a houseboat in San Diego. I just bought a cheap inverter from walmart to run my laptop and I'm wondering what implications this has for my battery. I have an ACDelco silver line (30 month) that's about a year old and has never had excessive drainage. So I guess my question is what exactly is the excessive drain limit? I mean is there a minimum voltage I should keep in mind to avoid premature battery failure. Obviously I want to avoid a no start condition. What voltage could that occur at? I'm just charging my laptop with it (130w charger) and am assuming running it while the engine is off is fine for a while. I tried to google and youtube for some answers but was inundated with garbage results so hopefully this question is fine here. Any other inverter related advice that might not be obvious to consider would be appreciated too. And inverter recommendations. I'm pretty sure this is a modified sine wave (cheap, Everstart plus 400w), are the true sine wave models worth it?

Hi, I have 2 questions. One, I want to do the HD Front end conversion on my 2007 NNBS Silverado1500. I know what I need, and I have decided on the 2011-2013 HD grill and bumper. I have gone on line and seen some people go with the 2007-2010 HD hood and some people go with the 2011-2013 HD hood. Would any one know the difference or if one fits better onto the 1500 truck? And does anyone know how to install the bumper? And the second question was, How can I convert the truck into full electric mode? I have manual windows and no power locks. My truck is extended cab and I would wish for the back windows to work as well. Or does anyone have a really good video on what parts I need and how to do it step by step? I am by no means a mechanic but i do work on my trucks here and there on small things. Thanks in advanced!
