    Sealant on the gasket? Yes or no?

    I picked up a new gasket for the piece between the oil filter and the block on my 1999 5.7L engine. You know... the oil filter screws into this, and it is mounted to the block. Mine is leaking, so...

    I put 2005 17" oem steel wheels on my 1999 k1500 and went with 255/70/17's on them. I wanted to go a little taller, but not wider... but, I was worried about rubbing.
  3. Help choosing front shocks for 1999 K1500...

    Two questions... One, is there a brand or mode you all prefer for mostly street duty with 17" steel wheels and 255/70/17 AT's wrapped around them? Only a one inch lift in back, so mostly stock. ...

    No added coolers... just what the factory would've included. The heat hasn't been bad lately, so I doubt that's what did it in. I think i was the hard driving during my problem. I had to keep the...

    I did a fluid and filter change 10k miles ago. The fluid still looks clean, doesn't smell burned. The truck is a 99 k1500 4x4 burb with the 5.7L in it. I spent the last month driving it pretty...

    FYI, it turned out to be a sensor that was going bad. Looks like it was a crank position sensor? Or, maybe they sad a cam position sensor. Either way, it is good now!
  10. Bucking 1999 Suburban between 1k-2k rpm?

    So, the suburban started doing this bucking thing between 1k and 2k rpm, but drives smooth above that. It also seems to happen only after the engine is up to full temp, after about ten minutes of...

    Door locks, I hate you!

    So, my door locks work with the alarm remote. This tells me it isn't an actuator on any/all of the doors, since they WILL lock and unlock. However, none of the lock buttons inside the 1999 Suburban...

    1999 Gas line help?

    So, the line that runs from the fuel filter up to under the distributor - I'm assuming to the fuel injector rail - on my 1999 Suburban K1500 (and from the looks of the local junkyard, most any 5.7...

    17 years of service IS a lifetime on most modern cars! I noticed that a previous owner had replaced the rivets in one of my doors with screws, as well. They slowly wear out, I guess. I will admit,...

    I don't remember. I did it almost a year ago, when I first bought the thing. Lifted the back a bit, put on new tires and wheels, then had it aligned at Firestone.
