#1470 of 1497 00 silverado not idling down properly
Sep 21, 2006 (7:21 am)
not to long ago my check engine light came on and my 2000 silverado 5.3 started running rough. It seemed like it did not want to idle down properly and sounds almost like it wants to backfire. Had a diagnostic done and had to replace the mass air flow sensor and the wiring harness that shorted out. Ever since then the check engine light went off but it stills does not want to idle down when you let off the gas and it does not want to slow down as fast as before the problem but the tach is going down when you let off the gas. Please help everyone is telling me that I should not worry about it cause it is not throwing codes out but I know it is not working right and I just want my truck to run like it did.
#1471 of 1497 '06 Silverado Interior smell-not normal
Sep 21, 2006 (4:09 pm)
Have a '06 Half/Ton crew cab and have an annoying smell that seems more noticeable with the heater on(windows closed) Hard to describe the smell, sort of like a coolant/or electrical wire burning smell? Or could it be that when they rustproofed the truck, they got it somewhere that when the heater/fan is operated, it draws it(the smell) into the cab? It sure isn't the "new truck" smell of my previous trucks!
I haven't taken it back to the dealer YET. Thought I'd post here and see if anyone else has experienced something similar. Never noticed this type of smell in my last 3 Silverados.

Got an '85 Scottsdale that needs a body bushing replaced. Problem is, I'm not having any luck tracking one down. I didn't think it would be that hard to find one. The only other option I can think of would be to buy a small body lift kit and have them all replaced...thing is, this is a beater truck that just helps me move firewood, home depot runs, and craigslist purchases...not really looking to drop $300-$500 on having it lifted. Anyone have any ideas? My guy in the shop said he has a Dodge Durango that is scrap...he'd take one off of there and put it on mine if I wanted.

I have a 2000 Sierra Z71 with 60,000 miles on it. Within the first year of ownership, I started hearing a noise from the rear of the truck that sounded like a loose traler hitch. I had to hit a pretty good bump to make the noise so it wasn't normally bothersome. Every time I took it in for service, A I mentioned this noise and they always said they couldn't get it to make any noise and everything looked ok. I recently moved to a different town and took the truck to a Chev dealer for service. They checked out the noise and said there was some special lubricant they could apply to the spring that might possibly help and the total fix would cost about $100. I had previously determined that the noise was just on the passenger side wheel area so a spring problem could be the cause of the noise. Springs aren't exactly complex and I don't understand why one spring was fine and the other makes this noise. I go fishing and hunting a lot more since moving to this new town and riding over some washboard gravel road really makes some noise. I guess nothing is being harmed but it sure sounds bad. Any thoughts as too the cause of this noise and the appropriate cure?

I agree there is no "rocket science" in springs,BUT you haven't mentioned anything about TIRES, try rotating while they are off look for a busted leaf in the spring assy. That and maybe you have bad SHOCK, something could be bouncing around in there!
