  1. Check engine, ABS, and brake lights all on

    Asking for a friend about his 2005 GMC Sierra 2500 with a Duramax diesel engine...

    He said that he was driving along and it made a "strange noise" and all three lights came on simultaneously. ...

    I just wanted to update this and say that after the oil change I haven't had this issue again. Oil pressure is a little slow to come up on cold starts, but once it's up it pretty much stays up. I...

    Low oil pressure...sometimes

    2000 K1500 with 250,000 miles on it. 3 times in the past 2 weeks the "message center" has lit up with the message CHECK ENG OIL PRESSURE. Sure enough, the pressure gauge was showing little to no...

    Fog light bulbs

    I noticed this morning that one of my fog lights is dead. I pulled the bulb, and sure enought there is a break in the element.

    Before I replace it with what came stock (GE 880 bulb), is there an...

    It starts fine. Where would I find the fuel pressure regulator? Or the canister bleed off? Would I be able to put my eyes on them to look for leaks? And thanks for your replies.

    Sounds plausible. Isn't that vent at the tank, though -- and I'm smelling gas fumes farther forward.

    I've been driving this truck for 7 years now, and never experienced this until just the past...

    Solid yes.

    When / If mine bites the big one, I'll most likely buy another (used, the same as I did this one). It's probably the only GM product in which I have any interest.

    I smell gas - 2000 k1500 Suburban

    Specifically, I am smelling gasoline intermittantly, sometimes after I've shut my Suburban down and return to it within 10-30 minutes, and other times when I am getting ready to get in and start it...

    Need shocks?

    With 161K on the originals, suddenly I'm noticing a lot of suspension "jiggle" when the truck hits bumps, and on uneven pavement. Think it's time for new shocks?

    Tailgate struts shot?

    After spending a few weeks up in the great white north, my tailgate struts began to fail. Now that I am back home, they're not working at all. Man, that tailgate is heavy.

    Anyway, can they be...
  11. Replaced headlight, now beam seems higher and diffused

    2000 Suburban, stock headlight setup, and they've always done a great job illuminating the road. The way the assembly works, I don't see how I could have messed up the aim at all because it all goes...

    2005 Duramax diesel needs injectors?

    A guy I work with has an '05 GMC Sierra with the Duramax diesel. It's been skipping out at around 50-55 mph, engine shudders and runs rough. The dealer told him that 4 of the injectors are bad. ...

    Co-sign!

    Seriously, the market for used Suburbans and other V-8 vehicles will likely grow stronger when The One & Company outlaw them. They want us to drive like Europeans, but they have no clue...

    You may want to get a second opinion. That light came on on my Suburban in 2007. I took it to an independent shop (non-dealer). They replaced the 4X4 dash switch, which took care of the problem. ...

    Sticky gas pedal/throttle on Suburban

    When I first start my Suburban, the gas pedal is difficult to press. It won't move at all, until I use some force to "free" it. Then it's just fine for the remainder of the time I'm driving,...

    Huh. I bought my 2000 in 2005, and the AM didn't work then. FM, CD, even cassette player all work, just no AM. So I installed an XM receiver and learned to do without.
