Chevrolet Silverado 1500 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Okay so I'm really having a hard time with this. I
have a 2008 Chevy Silverado, and when I start it
(sometimes) it makes a grinding noise like
something isn't catching like it's supposed to. I
replaced the alternator and got a new battery. The
only thing I can think of is the starter, but every time
I take it to get tested they tell me the starter passed
the test. I don't want to take it to the dealership
unless I absolutely have to. I'm sitting on about
170,000 miles. Any kind of insight will help.
I took my truck to my mechanic yesterday to have the rear wheel bearings replaced & he discovered that the differential gears had some chipped teeth on the gears and metal shavings in the gear oil pan cover. He said that, I need to have the rear end rebuilt. My truck has 174,535mi. I'm wondering how costly this repair will be & if I should have my mechanic do the repair or if another shop can be recommended

My brother just bought it a week ago from a dealer in Az n one of the front driver axle broke today!!
a/c vent blows cold driver side hot on passenger side
A/C will blow cold for a while. Then cold goes away. Does not blow hot air. Just draws warm air in from outside.
Interior and exterior lighting pulsate. No rhyme or reason. Comes and goes. Happens at all speeds. Even while idling.
Vehicle stalled and after sitting it cranked and ran good enough to get it back home. Later replaced distributor cap, rotor button and cam sensor and it started and seemed to run fine. Two days later had same issue. Ran bad - then quit - let it sit and ran good enough to get home. Now it will not start. Replaced Crank sensor but no success. Engine will not fire. Would MAF sensor keep it from firing?
Fuel pump is good - wires, relays, and fuses are good
My husbands truck just shuts off at like random times he says it shuts off on the highway on his way to work no power of nothing we checked the fuel pump that seems fine we replaced the crank censor and air mass censor the icm new plugs new wires checked all fuel lines nothing is working I also seen on Google lots of people have the same issues and can never figure it out kinda wish we never got this truck last two weeks it has shut off at least 10 times while driving a 20 minute distance
Truck sputtering while going up any grade hill but on level ground runs fine. I've changed coils, wires, plugs, knock sensors, o2 sensors, fuel pump, fuel filters. Any idea why it does this it's driving me crazy not figuring it out. Plz help!
I,m at a stand still. i repaired a 02 silverado for a friend and after 2 days it stopped running while he was driving it. He says it just lost power and shut off. I did plugs ,wires , repaired valve cover gaskets, pcv, oil change . Today2/28/16 i replaced fuel filter-no start, checked coils-all had spark, checked fuel rail-pressure good, took exhaust off thinking back pressure due to plugged cats or muffler-no start, tried starting fluid still nothing. It just cranks with no signs of starting. I got an obd reader and his port doesnt work checked all the fuses and they were good so im stuck . I know cam/crank sensors could be bad , is there a way to check these with an ohm meter as their both 56.$ a piece. im trying to get OBD port to work in the mean time .
What would cause the pwr acc locks not have power to the fuse panel
Are they some fuse that I'm missing
My truck has been giving the intermittent message of "service 4 wheel drive". Not only that but there things happen and some at the same times. The fuel gauge goes crazy or sits on empty. The ABS light comes on; brake light; air bag indicator; gauge lights go on and off; and / or a beeping sound that's stays on a while. These happen while driving and may last up to five minutes. Each time the service 4 wheel drive message usually appears as well. Seems like a short somewhere. Do you have an answer?
a c and heater only comes out the bottom will not come out vents
Driving in 2wd transfer case slips to neutral but 2wd light stays on.(I'm assuming neutral bc the truck quits pulling). If I reverse, it slips out immediately but driving in foreward it may take some time. If I try to lock it in 4 low, it clunks loudly a few times then quits trying. (4 low won't engage.) I brought it to the mechanic who scanned it for codes and there are none. This is a remanned case replicating the exact problems as the old case. I tried an encoder from the mechanics shop but it did the same thing.
