Well, a little more information could help.
What are you working on, truck or suburban with rear a/c?
what's the outside temp when you did this.
Most any properly charged a/c system is best at a...
I disabled my ABS system on my 2k 2500. I just unplugged the 3 multipin connectors at the ABS pump/controller on the drivers side fenderwell.
You will have to unsnap the holding clamps of the...
Obviously if you have a leak, the system is/or should be already empty, otherwise you need to have an EPA certified mechanic perform the proper refrigerant reclamation and subsequent recharging when...
By chance have you check with a local salv yard for a fan assy?
Almost sounds to me like the control source "telling" the egr to open is acting up and activating it when it shouldn't be.
The ground for the level sensor should be the same ground that the fuel pump uses. So if you have fuel flow from a running pump you should also have a good/adequate ground for the level sending unit.
Agee with having an alternator checked before leaving the store with it.
I just wish i had done that the 1st time with the alt for my ex's 2000 hyundai. You have to remove either the radiator or the...
Don't forget about the load carrying capacity of your tires. You don't want a blow out when you are loaded.
Tom, a couple of questions.
What condition were the old plugs when you pulled them.
Have you used any injector cleaner lately.
Have you actually measured the fuel pressure with a guage.
Yea, if you research the Dex history with GM, you will find that there was a class action suit against GM (that was settled) because of V-6 engine failures.
The issues of the suit basically dealt...
I can't speak to the specific aux input you are referring to, I myself use a belkin FM transmitter. I plug it into my ipod and then just tune my radio to the right freq. One nice thing about it is...

Have you got a meter for reading dc voltage?
If so, disconnect the small wire from the alternator, turn on your ign, measure to see if you have 12v(or whatever your battery votage is) from the wire...
Just a theoretical question here....Is there a crankshaft position/rotation sensor that the ingnition uses for timing? could this prox switch be starting to act up when it's getting hot?
You also could have some temp sensors failing/failed and giving the ecm bad/wrong information causing it to not start properly.
A temp sensor giving a false high engine/air temp should cause the...
Are you still running the orange "dex cool" coolant. If so Id suspect a leaking intake gasket to explain your coolant loss. I have over 109000 on my 2000 K2500 and I have had the intake manifold...
You are more likely to find radio install "mounting kits" more readily if you install the radio in the hole above the heater/ac controller.(where the factory radio is placed)
Not to mention that...
If the truck runs ok with 'normal' throttle usage, but is acting up at WOT, makes me think is bad at the top end or out of adjustment.
X3 on loose connections.
I was asked to look at a similar situation on a car, and the alternator mounting bolts were loose. The last one to install the alt didn't tighten everything back up.(it had...
I may be a little off base with this, but here goes, Im sure others may correct me.
Going from the 4.3V6 to a 5.0V8 or 5.7V8 or other is going to involve more than just the engine block, radiator...
How does it respond if you don't have a heavy foot.
2 thoughts come to my mind. 1- throttle pos sensor, 2- mass air flow sensor. Either one could be lagging in response.
I may be wrong, but those...
BTDT with power loss. Most of the time the truck just wouldn't start(the dreaded 'click click' when turning the key). Give the cable a twist and it would start right off.
I did have it die on me a...
A little heat with a heat gun? or just replace the whole backplate assy.

1st thought that comes to my mind would be the engine coolant temp sensor.
Either one of two faults 1: It's thinking the engine is warmer than it acutally is so it's not giving enough fuel for a...

So how does one know for certain if the vehicle has air bag or not.
I checked out all my rpo codes and have nothing listed for any type of restraint system. I also have the empty storage "space"...
Can't you just find an aftermarket lock for it.
