Questions and observations about RPO codes and the 1500HD vs 1500
Probally nerding out regarding my Truck, but I'm a total Chevy nerd and was wonderin' if the Chevy Truck gurus could shed some light...
Thanks for the tip.
My 2005 WT 1500 needs a brake job and has rear drums.
Here in the capitol of the rust belt getting drums off can be a b####. I have a very large 3 jaw puller and have had to...
My Ma has one on her Pontiac;

My buddy at the city garage told me that the GM 4x4 trucks need wheel bearings (hubs) every 100,000. As for my trucks this is true. My 2001 at 100k needed hubs (as they started 'growling') and my...
My rear brakes on my 05 squeak when backing up. Thanks for the tip, I'll check this.

Oil is cheap. Engines are expensive
I could give a rats-ass about an OLM. These are for people who don't work in technical fields. Just another idiot light.
You want to your engine to last,...

My girlfriend is a ford girl. God Bless her anyway.
She likes my Silverado and is always saying 'that is a nice truck'. I told her that she has Chevy envy.
Don't get mad, just cut that ####### ###### off.
Milwaukee Sawzall (for workin' on the house)
Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Here in Wisconsin, the capital of the rust belt, the most important tool is an oxygen-acetylene torch with a bitchin' cutting tip. Since you have been beating the piss out of the rotors already, they...
Is this for the morning commute. Like when some dumb broad is putting on her make up while driving on the Freeway, you could pull up behind her and give her a blast??
We just had a major election a couple of weeks back. Leading up to that (for the past year) there was a lot of uncertainty and employers were reluctant to post job positions. Now, it is expected that...
Here in Milwaukee a lot of the streets are pretty bad with frost damage and heaving. You need to have a high ground clearance vehicle. The street outside work is so bad that it will kill your shocks...
a POS dodge is still a POS dodge no matter how much money one could spend on it.
Anyways, real pickup trucks DO NOT have leather interiors. That's not a truck anymore.
And what is with all...
2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 WT 5.3L
This is your base pickup with conventional configuration; standard cab, long box. It's a WT (work truck) with crank windows, rubber floor mat and...
My 2001 Silverado had 4 wheel disks
My 2005 Silverado has disk drums
People complained that the Chevy trucks didn't have good brakes. As a previous owner of a truck with 4 wheel disks I can you...
Valvoline 5W30 (conventional oil) premium every 3000 with a Delco oil filter. Motors last for ever.
In fact I use all Valvoline lubrication products. They have worked for me and Valvoline is one...
the leak down test is very good point. If that engine is that carboned up that rings could get stuck, the German tune up would not be a good idea. But I guess it is hard to believe that a late model...
OK, so what is this decarbonization. Is this where they pour something into the intake or gas to clean the carbon off the valves.
Here is Wisconsin we have what is known as a good German tune up....
Fuel pump pressure?
low fuel pressure could lead to a lean idle misfire.
Nothing is as cool as a classic Chevy.
If I had the stamps, I'd have and old classic truck (pre 70's) for a summer truck and keep the 2005 for a winter driver and work truck.
I would check the PCV system. I have seen this twice before. And a dealer told some one that she needed to replace the engine....WTF. There was oil in the intake duct. She went to a local corner shop...
With the battery reasonably charged (not dead), engine and all lights and accessories off; disconnect the positive terminal and connect an ammeter between the battery + terminal and the battery...
that's pretty sad when you hopelessly stuck in three inches of snow. Between lazyness and stupidity, I thought that guy would be there till spring. If he would have spent less than 1/2 hour with a...
Forget the Soda-Pop. That's stuff is bad for you
We got Pabst Blue Ribbon; In long necks. Can't get any better than that.
