sorry guys i don't mean to take over this post, but i have no idea how to create a new one.
I recently just bought an 04 silverado 4x4 extended cab w/ the vortec 4.8. When I bought the truck it had 66,500 miles on it. The dealer that I had bought it from took it to a garage and got it inspected for me, as well as an oil change. The sticker that was put in my windshield says that the next service should be 70,500. Well i am at somewhere around 69,200 right now.
This morning i got in my truck and everything looked fine, but when i got done work i got in my truck and started it and i noticed that the change engine oil came over the display. Now my engine light is on. Is this on because my truck is saying to change the engine oil or should i bring it to a garage and get the code checked? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Once again i apologize if i am taking over someones post.
p.s. Could someone explain to me how to create a new post?

Check your owners manual. In it where it says when to check your oil it will tell you how to reset the change oil message. Your dealer should be able to reset this at no or little cost. It takes about 30 seconds to do.....Matman98

#1483 of 1497 2002 Silverado 4.8L V8 Battery light comes on intermitantly
Oct 04, 2006 (4:44 am)
My 2002 Silverado 1500 had the alternator go on it last week. I changed it out and now my battery light is coming on intermitantly. The voltage measured with a multimeter coming off the alternator is a good 14.5 and its registering the same on the gauge in the cab. I changed out the belt while I had everything apart so I don't see the belt slipping. I flip on my AC to max and I see the power draw down on the gauge, never did that before. Any idea's???

I would venture a guess that you got a bad alternator..especially if you bought it at AutoZone.

I was thinking the same thing. I bought it at CAP and I was just telling a buddy of mine last week how I never had any trouble with CAP parts. Murphy's law!
I was thinking I might have hosed the battery driving it back home after the original alternator went south. I have a life time warranty on the new alternator so maybe I'll give that another shot before I replace the battery.

The dealer should do some research before spreading any grease. I don't have the part number handy but there are rubber spacers that are placed between the springs to rid that slapping problem. It is well documented and nothing new for the '00 model.

Dealer found the heater core to be leaking, will be replacing it and hopefully this cures the smell-never noticed any coolant loss or leaks anywhere.
Service adviser mentioned the h. core is located on the driver's side of the truck(?) thought they were closer to the passenger side-says it's a bit involved to remove & replace. Good thing for the warranty.
