#1372 of 1497 I Could Use Some Friendly Advice
Jul 10, 2006 (12:41 pm)
I have a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with the 4.8L V8. It has 70K miles on it and runs great. Lately I have been experiencing a stall feeling from a complete stop to acceleration. Once I get going its fine, no problems with acceleration while driving. It only happens when I am at a complete stop and then accelerate to proceed. I thought it could be my fuel injectors so I got a cleaning additive and yet it still does it. I have very very little knowledge about the mechanical side of vehicles. Could this problem be from the fuel filter or could my fuel injectors be clogged for some reason.
#1373 of 1497 CK 1500 Brakes Killing Me
Jul 10, 2006 (5:34 pm)
I have a 1998 CK 1500 Z71. I have severe pulsing on the front end as I apply brakes - moderate, heavy weight, or above 30. I can really feel the brake pedal modulate. I had it to the Chevy dealer last month (I have 70K miles). He said front end is fine - replaced pads and did minor turn of discs. It has gotten Much worse - shake and shimmy time. This is second brake job in last 3 years. Is dealer off base and poor job or other ideas on cause?

I think your Disc Wheels definately need changing. Also it would be good if you could also Balance the wheels when you change your Disc Wheels. I had the same problem and this is what I did and the problem went away.
#1375 of 1497 recirculating air allways cold
Jul 12, 2006 (11:47 pm)
I have a 2000 Silverado that always goes into air-conditioning mode when using the recirculate function even when the recirculating button is only button selected. Not a big deal but if anyone knows of a fix I would appreciate hearing of it.

STEL..........Note the A/C compressor will always kick on
when defrost or recirc. mode is selected to dehumidify the air.
If thats your issue.............
My 04 and 01 did the same thing.
#1377 of 1497 Clicking noise in front end
Jul 13, 2006 (7:35 pm)
I have a 2004 Silverado with 20K miles. When going about 25 mph and hitting a bump in the road, I hear a clicking noise (metal on metal contact). However, when I compress the brakes, the noise goes away. The dealership has been no help at all. Anyone know what this is? Thanks

So if I understand you right then the recirculating air action will always be air-conditioned and cold no matter which vent combination is used or. I have two other vehicles that seem to only use recirculating and air-conditoning when both are selected in tandem.
geo9.... thanks for the fast response

Yes the air flow will be cold if the temp. selector is
set to cold. If you slide it to hot it will be hot air
coming out of the vents.
The AC comp. should only kick in if the fan is on (but
I should recheck my operation just in case).
Otherwise air will always blow out of the vents if truck
is moving. With these GM HVAC systems you can never
really shut the air flow off.
Remember the old GM "astro ventilation" from the late 60s
early 70s? Always fresh air flowing thru the vehicle.

Just to make sure we are connecting on the same points. when you refere to cold air. that is to mean air-conditioner is on and that will remain so whether or not the air-conditioner button is pushed while using the recirculating feature.
The reason this seams odd to me is because there are times when I find myself in a lot of dust or just bad air (black diesel fumes in front) and in my delta I just switch to recirculating and wait it out. No air-conditioned cold air involved unless I choose it.
Any Way thanks for the help.

I have a 2003 with the 5.3. I just had some body work done and when I picked it up the battery was dead and it idled so low the AC would quit and it would almost die. When letting off the gas to come to a stop or make a turn it drops to around 300 rpm and almost dies. When at speed it runs great. I have read many posts and it appears to be a MAF sensor or idle speed control. Any help would be appreciated.
