Our 2017 2WD Colorado Z71 with 33k miles started making a knocking sound at low speed, worst at around 20mph, sometimes more noticeable than others. First the dealer put it down to normal tire noise, then a few months later when the noise got worse said it was cupped tires and that we needed to replace them. They recommended less aggressive tires as the "stock" all terrain tires always cup and make noise apparently. So, we had a new set of tires put on and the rhythmic thumping was still there, more obvious now that it wasn't masked by tire noise. The noise seemed to come from the front of the car and was noticeable at low speed 10-20mph and would speed and slow with the car. Once you're tuned into it you can hear it/feel it around 40mph too but its more of a vibration.
Took it back to the dealer and test drove, they heard the knocking and decided to replace both front hubs under warranty. When we picked the car up they said the noise was gone other than normal truck noises, on the drive home it obviously wasn't. In fact it's worse under some conditions.
Now it seems that either the problem is getting worse or we're hearing/feeling things that aren't there. The knocking has become stronger but only sometimes, and at highway speeds it feels like the whole truck is buffeting and vibrating. It also seems to be slipping gears, or shuddering between changes at low revs.
Having taken it back tot he dealer they say there's nothing wrong, they can't hear or feel any problems, and to be fair to them the knocking was less noticeable when I drove it with them but the vibration and shudder was there. I did ask to drive a new one so I could feel the difference and perhaps it's just normal but they didn't want to do that.
I've now left it with them and asked them to test drive it more and if they're happy there's no problem then I'll pick it up and if it comes back I'll take it somewhere else for an independent test.
We're 100% sure on the rhythmic knocking/thumping, especially as it's the same issue before and after the tires and hubs were changed, perhaps this is normal. As for the vibration and buffeting we're less sure, it does seem like it's slipping gears and shuddering but after so much focus listening to the thumping perhaps we're just seeing problems where none exist.
Does anyone else have any similar experiences, or are we truly just going a bit nuts?
Currently in the process of trouble shooting a p0304 code. Ruled out a bad coil pack by hooking an ohm meter to it and also swapping cylinder 2 & 4 to see if the the Mis fire would follow. Replaced spark plugs, plug wires, and put a can of sea-foam in the intake. Not hearing any abnormal sounds coming from the engine while running. Just a steady misfire on 4. I’m thinking it is a bad injector. Anyone else experience something similar, and to also see if anyone yet has tackled changing the injectors on the new models. Thank you
I am new to this forum and decided I would post about my issue since I can’t seem to find anyone with the same issue on a 6speed 2018, only 2017s and below... I have an extremely annoying fish bite/stutter when cruising up light inclines on the highway and while the stutter is happening, my RPMs are bouncing ever so slightly (probably about 50-100). It’s minimal bouncing but it almost replicates what would be a misfire or a transmission issue. Truck has 22000 kms on it. I have been dying to get a Diablew tune but I really want to see if I can get this issue fixed beforehand. I brought it to the dealer twice and they checked the TCM for updates and nothing. They checked for TSBs and nothing. They took it for test drives and “could not duplicate the issue”. I’m getting sick of my dealerships lacking desire to fix my issue.
Has anyone had this issue and got it resolved? Would love to hear any feedback. Thanks.
Hey guys, first post on here and I've got something that stumped me 100%.
I have a 2005 silverado 1500 flex vin code Z. It Idles rough it has terrible acceleration, wide open throttle it takes off like nothing is wrong. It misses on 7 every time, misses on 2 every other time, every other cylinder misses here and there. No misses when in park and rpms are kept about 2500. CEL flashes most the time when accelerating (except WOT) otherwise the light is on solid. It has 220k on it and I have replaced alot of parts.
All 4 02 sensors OEM
Fuel pump OEM
Throttle body cleaned
3 stage fuel system cleaner BG Brand
Air filter believe it or not OEM again
New transfer case (unrelated issue)
I have covers the base of the intake with brake cleaner multiple time, no signs of leaks. I've had the smoke machine hooked up 3 to 5 times and again no signs of leaks. At this point what is the best route to take? Remove intake manifold so it's easier to get to and replace the main grounds behind the heads and replace gasket at the same time? Replace the pcm? Replace throttle body maybe? Any other suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Well my truck has a shudder when in high gears, it's like hitting the rumble strip, rpm fluxuates 100 or so
150k miles on it all maintenance was done
Dealer says needs a new transmission
This truck was hardly worked
I've owned gm since 1975 very dissatisfied and disappointed with lack of concern
Just letting you know after calling around to different dealers, GM knows that issues begin with some transmission around 120k
4500$ repair and only a 50k warranty, shows their level of confidence
