Won't shift out of park if key is on. Will shift if key is off and then can start in neutral .

I swapped my steer colum w/ used column same make/mod. now runs 3 sec. and dies. I did not swap ignition, used the one that came with new/used column. Will it need a relearn to correct? Or any ideas?

ive checked the plugs and fuses and its not hitting a lik@all

I have changed crank sensor and distributor pick-up sensor. The vehicle will start sometimes and sometimes not. Vehicle sets a lot between use. 5.7 engine, 165000 mi, good oil pressure, generally runs fine. Thanks

I know my power steering and brakes have lines running together my brakes barely work the a.b.s. is coming on and I have no power steering. All fluids are full no leaks. My truck is a 1999 Silverado 2500 4x4


does the transmission have to come out

My font pinion bearing in my front diff. froze up and when I activated my four wheel drive at 45 miles an hour the truck felt like the brakes were put on and I smelled clutches burning. I replaced the front diff. and now my transfer case will move the front wheels if the truck is on jacks,but on the ground it will not turn the front wheels. I heard that 4 low was a direct drive but it still will not spin the front wheels on the ground. I know that the clutches are bad, but could there be another problem. I'm sure I can rebuild it myself, but would it be worth it cost wise or should I buy a rebuilt one? Thanks Jeff Horton

I notice that my lights flutter an the voltage gage go wacky at time , is this a short somewhere?

The security light, the low fuel, and battery light flashes. the gear selector won't light up. when hooking up to the diagnostic port obd2 will not show any diagnostic codes. four wheel drive won't light up.

The truck started with it not idleing so i changed the fuel filter and it went away. Now it will idle up to 3000 rpms in park or neutral and about 1500 in gear even on the brake or not. I disconnected the battery and it went away for awhile. It pretty much runs high all the time now. Ive had other times it will idle down to 500 rpms and stall out too. Some times it will run fine when you first hop in but will act up in a short time. Any ideas?

How do I go about replacing the fuel filter?

have a 2000 chevy 2500HD silverado 6.0 gas motor. I have an issue where when i start to go down hill and coast a little bit and let off of the throttle down to about 1/10th throttle the truck down shifts out of overdrive, sometimes i get a p0300 misfire with the engine light flashing. the wierd thing is this only happpens when im going down hill on deceleration. it will kick out of overdrive, sometimes the check engine light comes on sometimes it doesnt. but once at the bottom of the hill the tranny will not shift back into overdrive for atleast a mile or two. this is on the highway around 70 miles per hour. if i stay on the throttle or if im under load it doesnt do it but if i am on the throttle pedal just a little bit and i start to coast then it kicks out of overdrive. if i let off the throttle all together and coast say from 75 to 70 then back on the throttle it wont do it. so i have to speed up and let off all together to prevent this from happening. this is really anoying. i have a air intake, msd coils, hypertech programmer, eldebrock headers.. new plugs, new wires, new throttle position sensor, new fuel pressure regulator, new fuel filter.. I have heard people say crankshaft postion variation relearn procedure could fix this because of slack in the timing chain, i guess that would kinda make sense because that would be about the point that the tension would shift from pull to push or load and no load. please help, thanks

my key worked fine and then just stoped so the igntion out and it will start for a bout 1 to 3 sec and cuts rite off again...its a 2000 chevy 2500 there any way to hot wire or smthng untill i can afford to fix.i do own the truck!im frustrated as h**l.just paid 11 grand 4 it 2 weeks ago and drove it in my garage to detail and thats all she wrote!!! helpppp!!!!

worked fine when i shut it off.

My engine will shut down to a fast (1600rpm) idle while driving. By stopping,shutting off for about 1 minute,you can restart and proceed. However,this may repeat several times. The info center simply states "Reduced engine power". Any IDEAS??

There are two types and I need the right on.

THe radio and inside lights do not work, will not start. It fires but does not run. Check Gas it is okay.
