    We'll I got the truck to the shop finally. The mechanic deduced that the transfer case is slipping and says I need a new one.

    Guess I'll start getting quotes.

    Quick update,

    I took the truck to a 4x4 specialist this morning. He did something I thought was brilliant and cant believe the dealership didn't think to do. He confirmed via sound the transfer...

    I have needed the truck to commute to work but will get it back to the shop either this Friday or next weekend. I will update this thread as new info arises.

    Pikey,

    Thanks for the excellent diagram. It may not be my truck but it is very simular. #13 could be the culprit. If actuater is extending then the part it moves may be malfunctioning.

    The...

    Hey Pikey, your right I guess I am thinking old school. So if something in the diff is messed up would it be right that it makes no bad (grinding or squeaking) noises? Even in 4X4? All sounds are...

    So the Lanche spent three days at the dealer. They found that the system appeared to be working normal. They put it in the air and all 4 wheels spun in 4x4. As I had figured the transfer case is...

    When I bought the truck last month it came with a 3000 mile warranty. I took it to the Chevy dealer this morning to see if they could figure it out. It's certainly in the front end as front shaft...

    So I finally got some time to look at the 4x4 stuff. I took the actuator on the front axle off, operated it, and it works fine. I can hear the transfer shifting also. I tried to spin the front dive...

    Speyrod, yes the code and service engine light have not come back on. It must have been a loose wire.

    I did research replacing the coil. It did not seem like to daunting of a task and if I...

    Yep, not in Michigan. Good idea Ray, I'll look at the wires. The actuator doesn't look to difficult to change so ill probably attempt that soon.
  11. 4X4 light switches but front axel not engaging.

    Took my Avalanche on the beach for the first time today, put it in 4X4 and light switched but I got dang near stuck because the front end did not engage to give me 4x4. I could hear the transfer case...

    For those that are interested, I believe I have fixed the problem. I found the number 3 cylinder and the coil, looked closely at the wires and touched, jiggled, and tugged on them. I then gave the...
  13. P0353 code but Avalanche seems to run good

    Hi folks, just moved to this forum from the Suburban forum because I just bought a 2002 Avalanche 1500 4x4.

    The day after I bought the truck the service engine light came on, code reads p0353...

    A little update. Yesterday I dove into the burb. No obvious AC leak that I could notice. I found nothing to make me think the water pump was leaking. I looked at firewall and found nothing leaking...

    Aye Aye Captain. Ill dig into that in the morning.

    That's the second time someone has mentioned AC refrigerant. Is the refrigerant slightly oily and would it dry like water? Where would I start to chase down an AC leak like that? Another interesting...

    it was defiantly watery with a oily color. The cardboard under my truck shows it dries with a pinkish color. My antifreeze is green. It's not like its gushing just dripping. It also dries on the...

    I suppose I'm not sure what a soft plug is. Is it the same As a freeze plug?
  19. Im starting to think my water pump is leaking and...

    Im starting to think my water pump is leaking and the water is traveling to the back of the motor somehow and dripping around my starter. Sound reasonable?
  20. Water leak coming from rear of motor above starter, 99 Suburban

    I have recently noticed a leak that is coming from the rear passenger side of the motor. At first I thought it was oil, but after comparing the leak droppings and oil from dipstick on a piece of...

  22. Electric drain on battery and a odd under dash noise

    99 suburban 5.7 4x4

    Two weeks ago my battery started going dead after the vehicle sat for a few days. I'm not sure how old the battery is but it's been in the truck since I have owned it. I took...

    I just fixed a starting, sputtering, and low idle problem by cleaning the throttle body. Mine was filthy, it took less than 30 minutes and about $4.00 for a can of throttle body cleaner. So far that...

    Here is an update.
    I finally got some time and cleaned the throttle body. It was dirty as all get out when I looked at it. I gave it a once over and got it looking fairly clean and fired the Burb...

    Thanks for the tip bazar01. I'll pick up a bottle of throttle body cleaner on the way home tomorrow. I looked up a couple of videos of the process and it makes sense. If nothing else i'm sure it...
