This is my first post on this forum. Last year I bought a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 Ext cab LT with a 5.3l V8 that is Flexfuel capable. Well, I never intended to use flex fuel, but last week, I did so on the spur of the moment. We drove about 3/4 of the tank gone. Then as I was pulling up to the gas station to refill before going out of town for work, my truck's idle began dropping and feeling like it is about to stall out at idle. This happens whether park is engaged or not. I filled up, put some seafoam in my tank and drove about 1.5 hours to work. It continued to idle like this all throughout the trip and even later when I went out and sat at idle while on my break. What could be the problem? I can't imagine that an engine that is meant for flex fuel could get that messed up by it. A side note: we had the transmission rebuilt in January, just in case that makes a different. It has only been a few weeks since last oil change. All fluids were checked and filled up at that time and have been checked a couple of times since.
I just installed a 6" lift on 2016 suburban LTZ it has the magnetic suspension with rear air shocks. Looks awesome, problem it rides like a 2x4. Meaning it rides like shit. What do I have to do? I hear that bypassing the air compressor & air shocks is possible. Then put in regular shocks.
Has anyone done this and if so, have you had any issues? What are they?
any help is appreciated
So what's the biggest tire we can run on a leveled Silverado with aftermarket rims that will stay flush with the fender or tucked a bit? I'm looking at some black rhinos or methods that run 18x8.5-9 with either 0 offset or +12. I'm hoping to get some 285/75-R18 all terrains to fit. I'd rather buy online as it's cheaper than the local wheel shops
So today i got in my truck to got to work and my truck wouldn't start fuel gauge indicated that it was empty but fuel light isn't comeing on. The night before i got in my truck to come home from work and it started normally and drove just fine no issues what so every and i had over half a tank of gas as well but when i try to start it it starts and dies immediately. would love some help in this issue. Thanks
Edit: can hear fuel pump prime .
I am looking at a 2-3.5in lift for my 2016 Silverado LT 1500, but I tow 3000-4000lbs daily for my job. To prevent the rear end from sagging, I want to add an additional leaf or a helwig helper. Basic vehicle dynamics tells us that stiffening the rear suspension and doing nothing to the front will create oversteering issues at higher speeds. What does everyone do to the front suspension to create proportionate front/rear stiffness when adding a rear leaf?
