Chevrolet 1500 Pickup Problems
The windshield wipers may not work intermittently due to a faulty wiper motor control board. Our technicians tell us that lightly taping on the wiper motor when the fault occurs should temporarily get the wipers working again. Some vehicles were recalled for this problem and some were not. You will need to check with your local dealer to find out if a specific vehicle was included.
The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate and/or the ABS system may activate erratically.
The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

Chevrolet 1500 Pickup Reviews
when i frist start it it hit and try to start but i turn the key off and try again and hit till it start
I bought my Regency conversion Chevy 1500 extra cab truck on Ebay auction back in 2005 with 51,000 miles on it. The paint and interior at that time were outstanding, almost as if new condition. Through the past years and now at 113,000 miles I have had the following work done on the truck : 1. Automatic tranny rebuilt at 72,000 miles at cost of $800
2. Rear end axle bearings galled up and making lots of noise at speed, needed to be replaced at cost of $750
3. Usual wear items such as tires, accessory drive belt
Other issues I have had with this conversion truck is that the rear power sliding window stopped working, the paint has finally started to lose its clear coat protection on the top surfaces, tie rod ends need replacement, have had tons of problems with the brakes system, seems that the truck will not stop easily, feels like the front and rear brakes are not working together as they should and the front wheel ABS sensors were bad had to be replaced, lately the biggest problem I am having is the constant replacement of the brake lights switch assembly as I lose the brake lights function about every three months, getting tired of changing that unit out, not an easy item to replace.
This truck is really good down the road, cruises really nice, gas mileage is not bad as i get about 15 mpg in town and almost 20 mpg on highway. My truck has the Vortec 5.7 litre engine and it runs like a top. I would recommend this truck to anyone however I would insist that they make sure the brakes are working properly and no electrical issues. I would buy another Chevrolet truck again.
my vehicle will not start.if i put gas in the fuel injector manually,it starts and stays running.Do you know the problem?
Bought our 1996 Chevy truck used with 300K miles on it in 2007. I replacded a few worn parts and it ended up the only vehicle my wife and I now own. We travel all around America. This was our first Chevrolet Pickup. We use to own Fords and never had a Ford last like this Chevrolet is. The V6 engine is next to perfect. We still have great oil pressure at 380K miles. Good gas mileage and the real problem now is the 5spd Tanny is showing signs of wear.. I will have it replaced and plan on keeping this truck till I get too old and can no longer shift it...That may be a long time..I hope.
