Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra General Operational Questions



  • Thank you for the help. I was looking for a better manual than Haynes. They really stink. Other than torque specs, they're not good for much else.

    By the way your first two links are the same. Can you repost which ever option is missing, please.

    Thank you.

    Helm Factory manual

    Oops sorry about that.

    Haynes couldn't even give me the right location on a thermostat for a Nissan truck. Never ever bought them again.
  • okay I'm having problem with my truck.. i'am a female i know a little about trucks.. i can do my own tune up :) my truck has a 130 thousand miles on it..

    i did a tune up on truck ,i changed oil and oil filter,spark plugs,wires, distributor cap and button,air filter a week ago.

    okay, then i started was having problems with truck shifting hard so i had a trans flush with new filter and pan done and had rear end greased 3days ago,, :blush: i couldn't do that so i had it done..

    well that half way fixed problem with trans, it's now not as bad but still fill it a lil but not as bad,

    after all this has been done to truck know i got another issue and i don't know exactly what the problem is.. it cranks fine drives but for no reason just cuts off or if u leave engine running @ idle motor shakes and cuts off ??? don't know if it could be electrical problem or maybe just an easy fix ... please if u have any ideal as to what it maybe anything will be appreciated... :sick: :mad: thank you!!

  • when i get up to about 60 mph i start getting a vibration when i let off the gas it stops, when a touch back on the gas it starts again. the drive shaft is all tight thought it might be a universal going bad. it seems to be getting worse. seems to only do it in overdrive anybody got any thoughts on this?
  • The drivers seat is electrical. The seat will only move up and down. Can not see any debris on tack. .Ttook seat apart, still could not see problem. It feels as though it is hanging up on the left side. Any help and suggestion would be appreciated!

    First off. How did you change the cap and button on a truck that does not posess a distributor? When they started installing the coil packs in fuel injected motors they ruled out the need for a distributor.

    Hi. My steering wheel won't lock on my 06 gmc sierra when I take the key out of the ignition, just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to fix it.

    I have a 2011 Silverado LT. I am supposed to have manually folding outside mirrors but they don't seem to fold. I don't want to break them. Is there some secret to this?

    This appears to be a useless forum. Doesn't anybody ever respond anymore?
