actuator for a Chevy Colorado 2006 5 cylinder model

Ive changed cam and crank sensors ck engine llight stays on even after I reset it comes back on ???

Blower motor kept working but no air

Problem: Sometimes at start up after engine is at operating temperature and is shut off for a length of time (greater than an hour), which seems to vary based on outside temperature. Engine will hesitate at startup. RPM drops to almost zero jumps to 2000, back to zero up again and finally settles in at a little less than 1000 slowly drops to around 600.


Replaced Mass Air Flow
Replaced Camshaft Solenoid
Replaced Throttle body and sensor (Dealer replaced)
Cleaned PVC valve

Doesn’t exhibit problem when cold, never a problem with first start in morning.

If engine is shut off when hesitation starts it will not exhibit problem when immediately restarted.

Can shut off and restart multiple times and it will not exhibit problem.

Seems that it’s related to temperature of engine or related parts.

Never have seen a Check engine light

Check fuses check light bulb flashers work turn signal does not work

1/. Both heated seats not working?, lighted switches not lit up?, fuse 18-20A OK! (ORG - Red power driver/passenger seat modules; and what is the purpose for the diodes shown in a parallel to these red circuits ahead of going to each of the seat modules?), AC fuse5-10A OK! (BRN wire power driver/passenger Lumbar Adjuster/Heater Switches); what is the purpose of the diode

2/. Occurred all of a sudden, randomly works on #'s 1,2,3 but very seldom? Suspect loose connector but where do I locate the resistor pack and wiring connector?

3/. AUX power accessory outlets located under the dash for GPS, Phone charger, etc., do not operate my remote GPS, what is the voltage spec, battery voltage or is it computer controlled?

Wiring schematics for power distribution, wiring schematic for ground distribution would be very helpful, diagnostic techniques, and specs greatly appreciated, or any other experiences and solutions, thanks for any assistance,,,, cheers!

Most offen after rain. I pull over and turn it off. Restart it and it gos away. It happens 3 to8 times a week.

Is the fuel filter located in the engine area

My truck was under water for about 4 hours due to a hurricane. The water reached the seats, so about halfway up the doors.
As a result, my 4WD, horn, keyless entry, and hazard lights didn't work. Hazard lights wouldn't go off.
I took it to a shop. The guy installed a used BCM and apparently didn't know how to program it. The only thing fixed was hazard lights. HOWEVER, the odometer reading was over 8,000 miles off, due to the donor BCM!
He said he'd fix everything and install a new BCM. He gave another estimate, and also included a new horn and transfer shift module (saying that was needed to fix 4WD) plus more labor charges.
My question...Wouldn't a new BCM fix all the issues (4WD, keyless entry, horn, and correct mileage)?
Thanks!

It's acting like it ran out of gas

my 2006 Colorado just died on me going down the interstate last night.I checked the codes and they were what they always have been. 0017 and 0128.I have changed both camshaft position sensor and the crankshaft position sensor and it still does the same thing. When you crank it and start to drive, it tries to die or it does die unless you keep your foot on the gas. it will idle up and down until it dies and last night it just stopped running going down the interstate.I was told that it might be the camshaft solenoid sensor but I can't find any part store that has it. None of them knows what i am talking about. what do I do????

just after it started knocking the oil light came on and stayed lit, i immediately pulled off the road and the engine died before i could even come to a stop. I didn't try to restart it for fear of damaging it further.

When the brake pedal is pushed down indicater lights on dash come on. Left a little brighter than right. Changed bulb on rear, no help. When driving, right side seems normal but left flashes fast until brake pedal is depressed then stops flashing completely. Indicater lights stop flashing until brake pedal is released. No codes on scanner. Help.

My truck dies, I turn it off for a minute and start it again. It has been doing this for about a month, but now it is dying more often

When I started my 2011 Colorado all the indicator lights come on as normal and go off as normal except for the drivers side seatbelt which I latch every time. It is securely latched and when I am driving the indicator light flashes and the chime sounds and then after a minute or so goes off. But comes back on again after a couple of minutes and continues to do this cycle. What can I do to fix it

cd player won't accept or play cd's radio ok.

I'm changing my valve cover gasket, but the last two screws are under the intake manifold. This has become a bigger job then I expected.

when brake pedal is pushed & right signal is on flashes fast, when left signal is on stays solid. problem is intermitent. when signals are not on and brake is pushed right turn light on dash lights and you get signal sound

my heater fan and motor has been tested they work. it was coming on and off on its own but now nothing. any ideas?

Oil pan drain plug

When I go over a speed bump my back in makes a noise and if you shake the body there is a noise thumping noise

MY 2011 CHEVY COLORADO WILL NOT TURN OVER. IT IS COMPLETELY SPORADIC. SOMETIMES IT WON'T START FIRST THING IN THE MORNING, MAKING ME LATE TO WORK. SOMETIMES, I GET ALL THE WAY TO MY DESTINATION, OR TO A GAS STATION AND WHEN I TURN THE TRUCK OFF AND TURN IT BACK ON IT WON'T TURN OVER. EVERYTHING ELSE SEEMS TO BE WORKING FINE, MY RADIO, MY AIR CONDITIONING, ALL MY LIGHTS FUNCTION JUST AS THEY SHOULD BUT MY MOTOR WILL NOT TURN OVER. THERE ARE NO CLICKING NOISES, OR OTHER STARTING NOISES WHEN I TRY TO TURN THE KEY. I HAVE SAT AND TRIED TO START THE CAR 5-100 TIMES, NOTHING. I THOUGHT MAYBE IS WAS USER ERROR, NOPE. NOTHING I HAVE DONE WILL START MY TRUCK. AFTER WAITING 20 MINUTES TO AN HOUR IF I TRY TO START IT, IT STARTS RIGHT UP LIKE THERE WERE NO PREVIOUS ISSUES

also it runs hot even when i have the A/C on to

After driving an hour, my rear brakes slightly engaged on their own, noticed by slowing the truck into a parking space and odor of brake pads. 74,000 miles, bought used, and to my knowledge has never had brakes replaced. Did I just hit the nail on the head?

When I look down at the tac it's fluctuating up and down what would cause this

when should it be done

No symptoms and no visible leaks.
