If you ever buy a diesel PU you will never go back to gas. the fuel mileage difference is really awesome. Diesel fuel is expensive but the mileage differential compensates for it.

I won't be as hard on you as McFly, but I'm not a transmission specialist neither> Possibly your transfer case was in neutral. You may have pushed the button accidentally. With transfer case in neutral, it bypasses the locked trans. Are you sure the E-beake pedal was floored? If so, you definitely have an E-brake problem. Without a running engine, no vacuum to power booster, so you would need legs like Fred Flintstone to push down on that pedal, but it still should've stopped. Under those harrowing circumstances, are you sure your buddy was pressing down hard enough? Scary stuff!
#92 of 118 Door Molding/Trim problems
Feb 10, 2008 (12:44 pm)
I have a 2004 Silverado 2500 Crew Cab in the silver color. My door moldings have bumps in them. There is a bump in each moulding. The front bumps are closer to the back end of the door and then back doors, the bumps are closer to the front end of the door. These bumps are in the same spot on each peice. Has anyone ever heard of this before and if so what did you do? Buy new? Thanks!

If the truck is not under warranty anymore, is it worth the money to fix them? Did the ones that your warrantys covered do the same thing?

No the new ones didn't do it as long as i had the truck. I got rid of the truck at 30000 miles because of so many other major problems Most that GM. said was normal. & wouldn't fix.I now know they weren't normal because so many other owners having to fix them at their expense.If thats all the problems you've got & like the truck I would have it fixed at another body shop.Not GM Good Luck

What the deal is that somebody messed up and didn't pull the bar code
stickers off before they put the adhesive OVER them then put them
on the truck. Then the sticker pulls away from the moulding and
adhesive then the "warts" appear !
You could try to call the GM 800 number and maybe there is now a
recall or a goodwill adjustment for a free fix!
My 04 had this issue and I never bothered to have them replaced but
the person who bought it after me did while it was still under the new car
That and a heated mirror failure were the only problems I had with that
truck. I will note I heavy towed and snowplowed with that rig also!
I now have a 07 GMT-900 2500 x-cab 4x4 which has been flawless and I
work the tar outta it also!

I just got off the phone with the 800 GM people. They told me that since it is out of warranty that I would need to set up an appt. with my chevy dealer and they will take a look at it and see if they can assist me at all with this. The appt with the chevy dealer cost money, but the guy didnt know how much. Has anyone done this before and came out ahead? Will they help out or just feeding me a line? Thanks!!

Goodwill adjustment is whether GM and the dealership agree that you are a good enough customer to go the extra mile for. Like buying multiple vehicles or even your current vehicle thru their dealership. Do you have maintenance done there? And of course if you're a likeable person according to the service manager and if he isn't having a bad day. Basically it's a toss up unless it is a recall which I doubt since there is no safety issue.
