When was the last time the throttle body/plate cleaned? The '00 rado was known for a sticking plate.

i have a 2001 silverado 4.3 liter and techron fuel additive and throttle body cleaning with gunk took away the random misfires. also very important to use an oem cap and rotor. I have had to replace my fuel pump, ox. sensor before the cat- and now intake manifold gasket -- these are common issues with these trucks. also common is need to replace the fuel injector spider. Another is the issue with the distributor developing moisture. worst thing you can do is to start replacing everything on the engine. best to start with the fuel injector cleaner and techron is what gm recommends. important to clean up that throttle body too. if you let it go too long your cat will fail. mine has 164k miles and i think it runs great.

rem308 I feel your PAIN!! I have a 2007 silverado 1500 LT with only 86,000 miles on it. Pulled into my garage saturday and the engine started "ticking" really loud. Took it to a reputable repair center. they disassembled the engine down to the lifters on the drivers side where the noise was and found (1) lifter roller had gouges in it and the cam was scarred. I had an extended warranty that ran out 1-11-13. The Chevy dealer where i purchased the truck & warranty said "Sorry, we can't help you." REALLY???????!!!!!!! I paid alot of money for this truck and its only 8 days out of warranty and all they say is "Sorry". I too have had it with GM. The old saying must really be true...."Once they get your money they are thru with you" Been a GM man for along time. Looks like there is a Ford in my future.

Got the same problem on my 2001 2500. Have gotten conflicting answers and before I spend 800.00-950.00 to replace my rear main I would like to hear what other people have done. Please reply back with any info. Thank You.
#396 of 399 ABS warning light
Jan 21, 2013 (10:07 pm)
I own a 2001 2500 4x4 6.0. While just tooling down the road the ABS light will flash on. When I turn off the motor the warning clears. The ABS waring is never consisitant, meaning that I can be driving rough caliche roads and it never comes on but yet on smooth roadways it will. I was told that my front hubs need to be replaced. But before any money is spent I wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem and am curious if its not the actual ABS sensor were it connects into the hub or the ABS modulator?

I have seen this posted elsewhere and one of the issue wsas a bad "ground" from the body of the vehcile to the frame. It seems on some years and models the ground becomes loose somehow.
