Chevrolet 2500 Pickup Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Chevrolet 2500 Pickup

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine  with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

The inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.

The windshield wipers may not work intermittently due to a faulty wiper motor control board. Our technicians tell us that lightly taping on the wiper motor when the fault occurs should temporarily get the wipers working again. Some vehicles were recalled for this problem and some were not. You will need to check with your local dealer to find out if a specific vehicle was included.

What is a fair price for a heater core exchange

I have replaced my fuel pump 3 times, the last time it only lasted a week and it's out again. the first time there was a burned spot on the ground wire on the harness in the tank. replaced the whole assembly. and still having the same problem.

I've checked the front brakes and the pads and rotors appear to be ok. plenty of pad left, and no grooves in the rotor. But sometimes when the brakes are applied, it sounds like it's metal on metal ( a terrible grinding sound).
