#210 of 375 ATTN: 1999-2002 SILVERADO OWNERS WITH THE 5.3L and the 6.0L
Jul 07, 2006 (2:11 pm)
I have two 1999 Silverados one a 1500 with a 5.3L and the other a 2500 with the 6.0L. The exhaust manifold bolts on the left and right banks are broken off. The Chevy dealer charges over $450/labor plus parts on each bank provided that they dont have to pull the head off. I was just wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem. if you have, notify Chevrolet in Detroit (1-800-222-1020) because this should be a recall but Chevrolet is playing it down like it is not a problem, and i know for a fact that there are more trucks with this problem than mine. Here are the steps to Customer service:
STEP ONE -- Discuss your concern with a member of dealership management. Normally, concerns can be quickly resolved at that level. If the matter has already been reviewed with the Sales, Service, or Parts Manager, contact the owner of the dealership or the General Manager.
STEP TWO -- If, after contacting a member of dealership management, it appears your concern cannot be resolved by the dealership without further help, contact the Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center by calling 1-800-222-1020. (In Canada, contact GM of Canada Central Office in Oshawa by calling 1-800-263-3777: English, or 1-800-263-7854: French.)
We encourage you to call the toll-free number, listed above, in order to give your inquiry prompt attention. Please have the following information available to give the Customer Assistance Representative:
Your name, address, home and business telephone numbers
Vehicle Identification Number (This is available from the vehicle registration, title, or the plate above the left top of the instrument panel and visible through the windshield.)
Dealership name and location
Vehicle's delivery date and present mileage
Nature of concern.
When contacting Chevrolet, please remember that your concern will likely be resolved in the dealership, using the dealer's facilities, equipment and personnel. That is why we suggest you follow STEP ONE first if you have a concern.

I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado and want to install an in dash cup holder in place of the cover but not sure it will work since my truck came without a pull out drink holder. Chevy dealer says they are not sure it will work but maybe. Can anyone help me out before I buy one?
#212 of 375 4-wheel drive actuator
Jul 20, 2006 (4:50 am)
Will the 4-wheel drive actuator from a 96 Yukon work in a 93 Silverado 1500? The 93 Silverado had the older thermally activated type actuator while the 96 Yukon has the newer electrically activated type. I understand that the wiring may be different. If the actuator would work, what would has to be done to make the wiring adapt?

#215 of 375 93 silverado 1500 4WD problems
Aug 05, 2006 (10:26 am)
The 4WD in my 93 Silverado 1500 will not engage. I checked the actuator at the front rear-end. It is working. I can hear the actuator motor operating when I shift from 2WD to 4WD and back. I have also removed the actuator and confirmed it works. Also, when I shift to 4WD, the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front end engages. I cannot turn it by hand but can when it is in 2WD. The light indicators on the shift console do not come on. Any ideas what might be going on?

#217 of 375 Driver side window
Oct 24, 2006 (7:17 am)
2000 5.3L Silverado, Z71. My driver side window no longer goes down. I push the button and only hear a click sound. Of course I checked the fuses, but they check good. I have a feeling it is the switch and not the motor in the door, but am not sure. Anybody got anything?

I had the same problem. It isn't the switch on the door. It is the door motor for the window. The cable inside had probably broke. You can buy a new motor for 50-75 dollars. All it takes is four bolts and clipping on the new motor. It is easy to fix. Try to buy the motor anywhere but from the dealer. They will soak you. David. ps. Let me know how you make out.
