#232 of 1497 2003 Silverado 4WD
Apr 29, 2005 (3:59 am)
Had 2003 Silverado 4WD with small V8 and automatic transmission. This truck had a nasty clunk in the transmission anytime it did a 2-3 or 3-2 shift without first shifting into first gear. Went to 2 dealers, both said it was normal. Drove a brand new truck and, sure enough, it had the same noise. Kept this piece of junk from date when new for four months then bought a new 2003 Dodge RAM 1500. It's easy to see why GM has major profit problems. The Dodge has been perfect for nearly two years.
The service from Chevy dealers is both indifferent and poor. They only want to shove new vehicles out the door.

I have a 91' chevy sill. 350 that doesn't shift from 2nd to 3rd. one out of second it revs high and does not shift at all. Even when let cool down did not shift had to drive in second gear at about 30mph because if it came out of second at about 35-40 it would rev up and I would have to stop and restart keeping it in 2nd. I am only 16 and can't handle to spend a lot any Ideas of what it might be and how much any comments very appreciated. Thanks

I hate ABS brakes also. I was so happy finding a new 2004 Impala which was made without them. ABS does increase stopping distance.

Your clunk is an intermediate steering shaft problem, (like gm told you), but they didnt tell you there is a fix. Greasing is only temporary and the clunk will come back. I just had mine replaced and so did my brother. there is a new redesigned shaft available to replace the old faulty one. Unfortunately the part is on NATIONAL back order and could take over a month to get. The dealer told me the number of trucks with the bad part is enormous, and the demand for new parts is too. So you might have to wait for your part. So go to your dealer and set him straight this is a known problem to GM and they should know this, mine did. good luck.
#236 of 1497 99 silverado Z71 transfer case problem
May 01, 2005 (6:43 pm)
I`m looking for someone with a 99 silverado. I need to know if the front driveshaft spins when in 2HI. Mine does, but other silverados I have looked at don`t. the other trucks were newer but shared the same transfer case, (model 246GM). So I need to find another 99 to help with my problem. Anyone with a 99 please help!!!!!!!

I have a 99 (AutoTrac) and can verify that the front drive shaft turns at all times, even when in 2HI.

did the plug wires fix the problem?
My truck seems to have hesitation problem.
I notice it more from a dead stop and making a right hand turn. It seems as thought the motor doesn't want to go it just stays around 2000 RPMs when I take off.
Any suggestion. Also any ideas on this computer upgrade/downloads that the dealer is talking about they say it is 250.00 is it worth it.

I notice that when i begin to accellerate ever so slightly from stopped to about 2nd gear i hear a sound that sounds like the more gas i give it it just pops and snaps and crackles under my feet and it goes away after 2nd gear pops in. Its got the R700 auto 4 speed. all the universals are freshly greased, there is no play between the tranni and the hanger bearing and there is no play between the hanger bearing and the rear end. I just noticed that when i park the truck, shut it off and get out, it makes that popping noise once. If i park on an upward slope facing my garage, i put the truck in park and i push the truck back and fourth with my body to get some momentum, i that damn noise again.its like somthing isnt tight?
Get back to me please!
Btw i baby this truck with lots of texaco EP grease
#241 of 1497 somthings compressing and making poping squeeky dry noises
May 02, 2005 (7:23 pm)
Foot on brake, in a wide open parking
Put into drive, Let truck begin to go on its own without gas.
Pop! snap ! pop pop pop ................! begin to BRAKE.
So.... the truck does it under very little load. In Drive.
Apply foot firmly on brake and press on gas while in drive. no popping noises you can hear engine chugging. I let go off gass and then ever so slightly let out the brake then the POP SNAP Crunch is even louder without giving the truck gas.
I began to accellerate and and it eventually went away until I began to brake and get back in the 0- 30 km/h zone. i dont touch the gas and you hear that damn noise again.
Ever damn time. it seems like when the engine is under alot of load it is compressing a mount or somthing ...
it sounds like metal on metal so tightly rubbed together that it makes a popping noise.
Its doesnt affect highway driving at all
Truck drives like a cadillac. 240 000 kms. well maintained. greased monthly oil sprayed yearly. stabilized fuel no rust 19 92 long box 305
HELP ME WITH THIS PROBLEM!
