are you turning the crank the correct way? on mine you can keep cranking it up and it just skips like it has a clutch so you cannot strip it out
just a question.
#1459 of 1497 2007 Silverado trouble
Sep 18, 2006 (3:36 am)
My new 2007 Silverado was built and shipped with the toe-in, camber and caster out of alignment. I took it back immediatly and the dealer did a full front end alignment. Drives good now. Next I started noticing the truck looked like it was leaning or lower in the front end on the drivers side. So I took a tape measure and found it was over 1" lower on the drivers side than the passenger side. I am taking it back to the dealer this morning. Will post later today...

Is the gas tank full? If so, it's on the passenger
side and may be contributing to the lean. Also, they
probably do the alignment at the factory with the tank
empty. 26 gal x 9 lbs = 234 lbs.

In the service dept. this morning I had less than a quarter tank of gas. We measured and it had a 7/8" difference, lower on the drivers side. They asked me to go fill it up with gas and leave it with them. They said they could fix it. They even loaned me a loaded out crew cab demo.
#1462 of 1497 Keep her in D or 3 around town?
Sep 18, 2006 (12:09 pm)
While cruising around town in "D" my Silverado (2WD,
3.23 ratio) will tack out as low as 1100-1200 RPM. That
seems a bit low, bogging the engine. I'm on the fence about putting her in "3" around town (about 1500 RPM 40 MPH),
or just keep it in "D" and leave it all up to the transmission? Any suggestions?
#1463 of 1497 Probably 2 issues; hard start, bad accellaration
Sep 18, 2006 (4:11 pm)
I know I have a poor(at best)prime thing going on with my "98-"99 Z-71. Pump was new say 40K ago,runs good at idle and on the highway. But since this has been going on, today I found that if I rev it up(to like 5000rpm)in Park,then try accel, it's smooth.If I don't, it stumbles and backfires and just IS crabby.Does the same crabby thing in PARK tooo, but is gone faster.After that, smooth accel.

Any suggestions on falling headliners?
Other than buy new or quit smoking!

I'm looking at buying a 2002 Silverado with a v6 39,000 miles. I would be interested in getting some feed back about this year and make, problems, pros, cons, etc.
