    2004 Sierra 2500 6.0 no comm with scanner

    One other thing you might check, since it affects writing to the PCM (when I update through HPTuners), and you can do this easily. Does your truck have an aftermarket radio? If it does, pull the fuse to disable it, and see if that helps with reading from the Matco. If your truck has the...

    What came in your mail today?

    Got the new fuel pressure regulators from Rock for the Accord. Opened up one of the packages (Beck / Arnley), and inside it is... a packaged Honda kit, their label / SKU, etc. 'Made In Japan', even. Took a little bit of trial & error to take apart the pump to replace the FPR, but it *is*...

    Mandatory breathalyzers for new cars

    Saw this on tonight's news, and thought of this thread. It explains: - How they'd likely implement it (cameras; existing tech, passive) - How Europe already uses it (so, likely how'd we use it too) PS: Happy Thanksgiving to all...

    Borrowed time?

    I'm starting to thing that of all of those components, the pump itself is the *most* reliable part of the module. My Accord has a similar one, and the FPR is a known failure point on them. In fact, mine has gone south (pump runs fine once the car starts; it has to be primed). Jumped on Rock...

    Tech2 group buy?

    Man, that's tempting. I could sell my real deal Vetronix and upgrade.

    2004 TB, hard shift into 4th

    Coming in late here, but given the addn'l description, I'd also suspect 4th accum, or perhaps something with disengagement of the lockup (TCC / PWM). The nice thing is that both of those are addressable via the valve body area, with one of the kits a lot of us have put in our trucks over the...

    FOR SALE Nice DD ??

    If you like the styling on the car, and what it represents (last of a marque)... why not? The '2nd revision' intake gasket set is supposed to have finally fixed the problems with that, at least. If the 3800 was available in that car, it'd be a no-brainer. Those last forever. And while...

    What did you do to your GMT today? [Part II]

    Drove mine into the city proper on Saturday (a little over 120 miles, both ways). On the way back, as I'm about to get onto the interstate, I hear a nasty sound from the front wheelwell (almost like when there's 'air in your heater core' kind of thing). Pull over into a lot, pop the hood...

    Tool Talk

    This. Especially on the 'high' setting. What I've noticed with at least HF's LED offerings... they're very 'binary' w/ regard to power. Meaning... they've got enough juice to power them one second, and the next... 'poof'. When you're right in the middle of something under a vehicle, that's...

    Mandatory breathalyzers for new cars

    You illustrate my point with the Sierra's child reminder... that uses a weight sensor, just like the front seats do. That paves the way for the buckle switch adds, later on. And, yes -- override is essential (dogs, etc.) But they'd either need to make it 'foolproof' if there were a child in...

    07 Tahoe 5.3L DoD killed it, Mama wants a 6.0

    Well, you'd have one-stop shopping, pretty much... but given what you wanted out of the motor / cam... I'm wondering if the LS9 cam would be the best choice for what you wanted to do? That cam, in your engine, is going to be a little lacking down low (the LS9 is a 6.2L supercharged, so that...

    After market power steering parts.

    Seeing what @coolride has done with those parts, gives me hope for my Envoy, which looks much like his did before he started (and the rear end of the truck is worse, even). Funny you mention the strap bolts -- I've always used the 11mm, and recently tried the 7/16, b/c I misplaced my 11mm 3/8"...

    Power steering bubbles

    I replaced a steering box and P/S hoses in a truck a couple of years ago, and had bad air bleed issues, even though I (mostly) followed procedure for bleeding the air. My local shop told me "new P/S pump". Turned out that the air worked itself out a couple of days later (although I eventually...

    Mandatory breathalyzers for new cars

    If anything comes of this, it'll be years away, and way more than 3. There are at least 13 items backlogged for future MY vehicles (you can read more about them HERE ), per the Associated Press story. The one they talk about most, rear seat belt reminders, would be child's play to include in...

    2005 Sierra Occasional crank/no start

    My '03 Sierra has this issue; I've been working on it, but haven't resolved it, yet (to which you may think... "so, what good is the info you're giving, below?" LOL... that's fair.) With mine, when it happens, it'll immediately start on the second crank attempt (no pedal). (also, btw, I had...
