Chevrolet Suburban 1500 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
my suburban is having problems with the braking system. recently only the front bakes are operating on my vehicle. Subsequently I took them to a repair shop to bleed all lines and had the master cylinder replaced and the rear drums adjusted. I thought this would take care of the problem but it did not. Can anyone help.
When I first start the engine in the morning the truck starts to make a loud knocking sounds, like lifters are not getting any oil. the gauge reads "no pressure" after a 5 or 10 seconds, the noise starts to die down and the oil pressure gauge shoots up to 35, 40 and stays at around 45 lbs of pressure. I replace the oil regularly, and use the same oil weight the manual recommends. The truck only has 134 thousand miles. I'am thinking of just replacing the oil pump see if that will solve the problem but i can't just go in there replacing parts to see if that will fix it. Just want to replace the bad part if possible. Thanks

my turn signal lights just started to freeze up and stop clicking when I apply the brakes, they work ok as long as I don't use the brakes, sometimes you can move the signal bar up and down quickly when the brakes are applies and it catches on but only for a couple of blinks then it freezes up again- does this have anything to do with the relay switch? I changed out the fuses and this did not help.
Can the heater hose connected to the rear of the manifold be connected to the water pump top outlet instead ? The other hose is connected to the Radiator.

K1500 Suburban with 220K miles. Starting to have some issues but has been a problem free engine for 10 years. Local mech. ran quick diagnostic - P0300 (random misfire), P0420 & 430 (Cat. Converter below threshold)
All good and well but his recommendation was to replace ALL of the coil-packs and plugs. - Seriously??
Prior to having test run, rough idle was occasional, check engine light was on, so I took it in. Since test, rough idle is constant and worse than ever. I can feel the misfire, sometimes bad, others hardly noticeable. Has not progressed to the point of stalling, but it won't be a surprise when it does. At 220K miles, I am not prepared to spend a fortune with a dealer/mech., but love this truck and want to keep it on the road. Can someone help me the "try this first" list of things to consider?

My truck is an automatic with a 4L60E tranny, it slipped out of gear today and will not move now. A couple months ago it had started making a tapping and grinding type sound. That sound had stopped a couple weeks ago. The truck was running smooth and today, it quit. What should I check first?
