Chevrolet 1500 Pickup QuestionsRefine by vehicle
my truck seems hard to steer at times- fluid is fine- I had a mechanic tell me the front left wheel bearing is really bad and the right one is just bad after I had a tune up and he took for a ride due to the chugging I felt at 50mph. the tune up fixed that problem. how do i know if i have a wheel bearing problem?
Part by part I have replaced everything on the a/c system except the evaporator, after all pieces replaced including the clutch fan "new", I evac/recharged,oil per mfg.requirements and I still have excessive high side pressure enough to pop the relief valve on back of compressor and at times almost stops enough to make the serpt slip (burn smoke)....tried everything short of replacing evaporator?...
I have a 1996 Chev. 1500 with a 5.7 liter engine with 162,000 miles. The speedometer and tachometer having been working erratically. It starts working good and then after a few minutes the needles start jumping aroung and the quit working. The speedometer and tripometer will quit working. Then the vehicle will start off in second instead of first. The other gauges continue to work. I brought it to a mechanic and he had the instrument control panel taken out and sent off for diagnosis. The reply was that there no problem with the panel. The mechanic then said it was most likely an internal transmission problem.
Any ideas and on probable cause(s) and solution(s)?
I am looking for what the wires that plug into the heater/ ac controls do. I have a bad unit and need to bypass the hot cold switch somehow to blow heat. I cannot afford to buy another switch for a few weeks and need heat!! The fan works, the area selector does not, nor the recirculate or the ac on switch . i know i prob need a resistor, but what value and what wires?
My check gauges light comes on the tac and speedo dont work also the truck wont shift out of third gear?
the idle is very high some times its at 1500 rpms sometimes and it made my truck shift real hard that it broke my transmission what could it be?
i started it up the other morning fine never had problems starting ever. then after i shut it off it never started again just cranks over constantly. i checked if i was getting fuel and if there was pressure in the line and its good then i pulled the spark plugs and turned it over and they all spark,so i went and bought new ones to see if theres a differnce and the all spark the same also while the plugs where out it spit fumes of gas out of the spark plug wholes so im getting gas to the cylinders and theres spark. shouldnt it ignite the fuel and fire. i got it to fire up for a second a couple times but just went back to cranking for ever killed the battery trying so had to recharge the battery. now about 2 months ago after driving the truck wen it would warm up it would all of a sudden not shift into over drive on the highway it would stay n 3rd unless id slow down and also feel a lil hesitant wen id try to give it gas it would take a second to pick up speed but wen i turned the truck off and let it cool down i could start it and drive away and it would shift fine no problems till about 10 or 15 min. of driving it would start doing it agin do u think this had something to do with it not firing up any more? i read sometihng about if a crankshaft position sensor or ignition control module go out it would crank long with now fire cuz it would lag on the firing time and it also said it could have shifting issues also? so how do i check either of those??

When i step on brake pedal, brake lights come on for an instant but then go off with more pressure. I had a new brake switch installed which i thought solved the problem but it is now doing the same thing, even after another new switch. Any ideas?
When pick up warms up it begins to run out of power. It sometimes misses and sputters like it is running out of fuel. If you push the accelerator to the floor it seems to clear up a little, then starts doing it again. I have replaced the coil, spark plug wires, fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel pump sending unit and fuel relay.
