    LS2 Rat Rod Build

    OMG! That person probably did not make after that crash. Thick rubber gloves and a hazmat suit would be needed, to even think about ripping that car apart!

    G102, G201, and G302 are the grounds you should be looking at. Let us know if you have a DVD player and or a navigation system, as there are a few more grounds to look for. When you find G102, there are 4-5 other grounds in that location. I would clean all of those while you are right there...

    LS2 Rat Rod Build

    I appreciate the insight on that auction website! It's good to learn the tricks of those eBay-like websites. Even more, I appreciate the information on why some of those cars that seem to be in good shape are even on that website or others like it. I'm not sure I would have even processed the...

    Radio will not turn off

    It happened again this morning... I turned the key to turn off the vehicle, opened the driver's door, and the interior lights came on but, the radio did not shut off. I immediately opened the passenger's door and the radio shut off. I'll replace the latch hopefully this weekend with a new...

    You just noticed that and you're going to fix that or you already installed the new gaskets??

    Another fuel injector install aftermath question Yippee!!

    O2 sensors are not yet my forte but, would the downstream O2 seeing a "failing/failed/missing" CAT and run the system too rich/lean and be causing his issues? @WeaponX when did you remove the catalytic converter? Also, how long before or after that did your current issue start?

    Higher LTFT at idle and higher at rpms

    On my 2006, I think all I had to do was unscrew the A/C tube that goes over the engine and the screw holding the fuel line to the engine. I think there's another bolt holding that A/C line on the passenger's side of the engine. You might want to remove that one as well to be able to move that...

    NEED HELP New buy- rod knock

    Mooseman mentioned that in the above previous quote. It's the temp sensor, along with the wiring. Looks like an 06 or 07 would be the way to go as you mentioned @TollKeeper

    NEED HELP New buy- rod knock

    It looks like he could buy a 2002-2007 4.2i engine. They switched the reluctor in 2008 and 2009 to 58x. https://gmtnation.com/forums/threads/which-years-are-swapable.12960/ @06'9-7x Let us know what you plan to do though. We're here to help you whichever way you choose to go.

    Radio will not turn off

    I am hoping that the door switch is bad!!! I am not in the mood to deal with the BCM or grounds 😆 Just waiting for it to happen again now.

    NEED HELP New buy- rod knock

    @06'9-7x What I would do in your situation... I would find a used engine either online (they ship you the engine) or at a junkyard. I would put the used engine in my vehicle and then have all the time in the world to rebuild the original engine that was in your 9-7x. If you choose the buying...

    First post, question on power steering

    @MRRSM Have you used any of Detroit Axle's other suspension/steering parts? I was thinking of purchasing one of their control arm & tie rod kits, as they seem to have great reviews.

    I would assume it's inside the black box where the electrical portion of the latch is.

    Engine Monitoring Feedback: Lazy O2 Sensor?

    I tried with a cold engine and it seemed like I was going to snap it. I ran the engine for about 5 minutes and then it didn't come out too difficult at all. It was about like removing a lug nut that was torqued on a little too tight. I couldn't get the thread chaser to screw into the threads at...

    Engine Monitoring Feedback: Lazy O2 Sensor?

    I bought this one (below) from Amazon and changed out my upstream two weeks ago. It worked perfectly! The longer deep well socket didn't give me enough room to get a breaker bar in there. TEKTON 47749 3/8-Inch Drive by 7/8-Inch (22 mm) Offset Oxygen Sensor Socket

    Radio will not turn off

    I'll give that a try next time it happens. I need to have this fixed before it starts to get really cold here. I don't need that radio killing my battery at some point.

    An EXCELLENT 4L60E & Transfer Case Repair Video Series

    I was actually planning on getting a transmission from the junkyard and rebuilding it. I just could never find a video that was slow enough to fully understand what they were pulling out and how they put the parts back in. I could only find those shop videos where they rip them apart in like 10...

    Another fuel injector install aftermath question Yippee!!

    @MRRSM Wonderful writeup, thank you! @WeaponX After reading what MRRSM wrote. I would take all of the spark plugs out, unplug the fuel pump relay (relay #41), put a large cloth/towel over the spark plug ports (to ensure fluids do spray EVERYWHERE), and then crank the engine over for a second...

    Radio will not turn off

    After thinking about this for a while last night... I went through my saved reports on my scanner and saw a few random codes that could help with diagnosis. I run a scan at least once a week exactly for this purpose. These codes never set a CEL but they were read on the scanner. B1327 - Device...

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Is that a module or a program in the BCM?

    Radio will not turn off

    @xavierny25 ya know what... Last week before this happened I did have an idea with the DDM. I couldn't get it to lock/unlock the vehicle. It only happened once, so again... Just a fluke. Might be an issue though. There's an 06 Saab at the junk yard. I'll pick one up tomorrow to test, when this...

    Radio will not turn off

    I'm not familiar with what RAP stands for, please inform me though. I'd have to check the windows when it happens again but, yes everything else seems to turn off when I open the driver's door.

    You could also try the steps in this video for quick troubleshooting of a junkyard radio. Hold a few buttons and it will work for a short period on your vehicle. This is a bench test/bypass procedure for those radios, not a permanent fix. You would still need to have it programmed for your vehicle.

    Radio will not turn off

    This happened once last week. I figured it was random/one off. The radio had not turn off after three drives today. I turn the vehicle off, remove the key, open the driver's door and the radio stays on. There interior lights do turn on so, I assume the switch/latch on the driver's door works...

    Dash brake light on 2008 Acadia

    If you're looking to buy a fairly cheap one (for all it can do). I have a BlueDriver OBDII scanner and it reads almost every system. It will read engine codes, ABS, airbag, transmission codes, etc.. It's $99, but totally worth it for a starter scanner.

    Which Tire is Best for a 2005 Trailblazer AWD

    Has anyone ever tried the Michelin Primacy Tour A/S tires? From Michelin's rating, they seem to be a better tire than the LTXs and they're cheaper. The only downside that I see is that the mileage warranty for the Primacy tires is only 55k, vs the LTX's 60k warranty. I need to replace mine this...

    (fixed) Engine whine I cannot pin down - definitely related to serpentine belt

    Oh, I did not know that. I did notice that on an alternator I bought, the pulley on that was larger as well. It was an aftermarket alternator and maybe they just put that size pulley on their alternator to fit more vehicles. The 2010 mm serpentine belt I had at the time would not even fit on it...
