like previously mentioned, the owners manual will tell you how to fix the change oil light, but the check engine light is not related to the oil change. The dealer will probably charge you an hour's worth of labor to check the code as will and individual shop, unless of course you have a good mechanic that you know and trust. Then he might not charge you for a 10 second check and reset of the computer. I might suggest heading to Autozone or calling the parts houses in your town. I'll bet one of them will have the ability to check the code and generally at no cost.

Someone did not re-set the milage meter for the oil. Its in the owners manuel. You are good until the 3,000 miles are up. I can send you the instructions for the 2002 but I am not sure its the same. It only goes by the milage. It does not inspect the oil.

It started with my speedo telling me lies. Then it stopped altogether. Unfortunately the symptoms were common in my other instrumentation as well, i.e. voltage, temp, oil pressure. I've read alot of similar circumstances in forums. And though they were in fact quite helpful, I guess I am only trying to hold on to my money so I can keep the wheels turning. Is it a flat out prognosis? (cluster defect)

#1493 of 1497 2004 Steering noise
Oct 13, 2006 (10:48 am)
I can feel a small knock or clunking noise in the steering wheel while turning left and even hit the slightest bump. Service personel have said it is not a safety issue and the part that needs replacing cannot be fixed, except for a lube kit. Has anyone else experienced this if so what can I do?
#1494 of 1497 2004 Power Folding Mirrors Not Folding Electronically
Oct 13, 2006 (1:08 pm)
My brother has a 2004 Silverado LT 3500 with the Duramax Diesel that he ordered new with every available option and when he test drove two other Chevy 3500 model trucks prior to ordering his, the mirror control button would allow him to electronically fold in the trailer tow mirrors. He just recently realized after two years of ownership that his truck will not do this. GM nor the dealer has been of any assistance at all, after three calls/visits to each. Any idea why his won't work in this manner? Thanks and we both would appreciate any assistance at all.

2000 Silverado, 5.3L, 106,000 mi. Same thing happening here in the past month or so. Coolant leaking on track rod and drips on L. front side of engine. Am looking for any new posts about the root cause. Some stains, like leaks, behind the water pump but dry when inspected. Will have to check right after motor has run for a few miles. Water pump would be the usual suspect. Have used up a gallon of antifreeze topping the system but very little fluid shows in the driveway here. Slow oil leak started about the same time as the coolant leak. Front main seal is OK and oil may be just a coincidence.

As you may have noticed, we are reorganizing the Forums to allow better focus and easier searching when you have a particular problem or comment about any given vehicle. Many of the large generic discussions (like this one) will be closed to new posts, and we ask that you continue in the more focused discussions that you can find at the Group page for the vehicle, linked below. This discussion will not be deleted, so you can still search for information in it.
We recognize this is going to take some getting used to (for the hosts too!), so please bear with us. If you have any questions, you can always email the host of any discussion - the link is at the top of each page to the host who oversees that discussion.
If you don't see a discussion in the group appropriate to your question or comment, start a new one, or send me an email, and I'll point you in the right direction!
