We have replaced numerous things that were expensive and we were left stranded with no vehicle due to this ongoing issue. I read about everyone complaining on different forums about being stranded and unable to use the vehicle because we refuse to go to a GM dealership and pay over 500 to 1500 dollars to fix an issue GM should have recalled for all of us. I've been stranded with 3 kids on the side of Highway 70 in St. Louis MO in 4 degree whether. Mind you they are all10 and under, and our family is in Illinois. I have had issues with the passlock system approximately 100 times or more. Resetting it only works for so long. GM better step up and fix this!
4.3 - Ever since i replaced my heater core the truck has been hard to start - kills the battery - let it sit for 4 hours or more and if fires right up- drive up the street and back - park it - go back to leave again and it will not start - also, once i get it started i will just let it run in the driveway and after 5 to 10 min it just dies -i have changed plugs, wires, ignitor assembly - I did a fuel pressure test and it read about 56 psi
My truck starts just fine it will shake a decent amount while in neutral, when it shifts gears(automatic transmission) it will shift really bad like it doesn't want to almost like its slipping, when changing from drive to reverse as well it will start shaking more i think due to the lower speeds. No other obvious things to look at though.
I have an annoying lower dash rattle, I believe its coming from the panel below the steering wheel Is this easy to take off?
Or dealer assist on repairs.
anybody else notice this?
New plugs wires air filter oil change oil filter. Cleaned throttle body and replaced gasket 3 weeks ago. Had a rough idle before tune up and still does. Fuel filter was changed about 6 months ago. Why will truck not stay running.

From Day one (8/15/05) my Selector switch has given me problems. 2 switches, software update, TCCM replacement (warranty finally) and now I'm being told that my transfer case needs to be completely replaced!!! I'm done! This has been the only consistent issue with this truck and GM will not acknowledge the issue. HD's and Diesels do not have this issue, I have asked anyone and everyone who i see that has this style of truck. Looks on the Silverado 1500 page with this issue and its crazy!!!

Will the engine give problems in the future as it is repaired. The truck has done 190,000km.
I have read that the baffle needs replaced and is a common problem in the vortex engines. How much does it cost to repair or is it time to trade?
While driving down the road, once i get to about 58 mph my truck will start shaking. It increasingly gets worse up until about 70 mpg it dies down. Around 62- 63 is definitley the worse. I just got brand new tires, replaced the pitman and idler arm, its been alligned, i dont know what else to do with it.
Truck has 215k miles on it. Im thinking its misfiring? Maybe a coil pack? Help me out please
Vermin entered the heater ducts over the winter and died there. How much will it take to disassemble the heating ducts to get them out? Is there danger of compromising the air bags with this repair?
