    @Maverick6587 let's just say that if yours is up in the air, mine is up in the sky 😅😅

    9-7x 4.2 to 5.3 Swap

    I'll be following this as I'd like to swap my 05 TB to LS engine some time in the future, but my plan is to throw in a T56 manual transmission while I'm at it :satan:

    A/C not working

    When I first read this, I was very sure that it wasn't the situation as I'm pretty familiar with how much it should cool at idle. I had an '05 TB LS that I had repaired it's A/C system myself. Thanks for the input, but the fan clutch is either seized on, or being commanded full speed by the...

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    Hello, it's update time! I do realize that my last post is 2 months and 1 week ago, but the thing is I've been using this vehicle on a daily basis since September 27 (The day I swapped the rear air bags to 09 TB coil springs) and the starter just never bailed on me. I'm not sure why it acted...

    Yeah, haven't seen that in my car. Will double check tomorrow. Oh please do post it Now, back to topic! I'll open another thread for the alternator when I feel comfortable with this POS starter crap

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    The Alternator has a 4 pin connector, with only the middle 2 being used. However, I don't see anything near the positive or negative cables :undecided:

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    - As I have stated earlier, I have ruled out the chance of the ignition switch being the problem by swapping in the known-to-be-good ignition switch from my TB (R.I.P).. Which didn't make a difference. - Actually no, the signs of low battery was after I drove for quite some time before I...

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    Well, we spoke too soon! Today I took the Denali for a cruise, picked up a friend and basically kept driving. Got to a petrol station and found my car enthusiast/DIYer friend so I wanted to show off and shut off the car to show him the starter is working. It seemed like it showed a low battery...

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    Well, of course I appreciate the help from @TJBaker57 and @budwich for suggesting tests that haven't come across my mind (which is why I started this thread in the first place) and @MRRSM for the in-depth informations and However, I'm not sure what do you mean by FUBARed starter :undecided:

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    Well, thanks for that info. I'll keep it for (hopefully not) the next time I need to replace it. Also, I didn't go crazy raising the engine, I did like in the video not allowing the mount's studs to go fully out of the chassis. At least the darn nightmare is over :celebrate:

    Bump! Any updates/inputs? I have the same issue

    A/C not working

    Update! With the brakes out of the way, the A/C only lasted less than a quarter of a day (suddenly stopped when checking the operation of the brakes). Went back to the shop and been told the belt got cut. It sounded logical to me since the vehicle hasn't moved since late 2011 and at some point...

    @Mooseman Well, if there's any air between the MC and ABS, it will pass through the ABS to reach the calipers, right? :undecided: :undecided:

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    Finally got around replacing that POS. I had split it into 2 nights simply because it was stuck between the chassis and transmission as can be seen in the video @MRRSM posted above. I've tried to unbolt the passenger engine mount and jacked up the engine like in the video, but still didn't get...

    Aux Blower Motor Intermittent

    @Maverick6587, You're solving another thread here, the situation in this thread is that the rear A/C blower motor has a mind of its own, going on and off randomly (except when it's manually turned off). That was a different thread that talked about slowly starting/stopping front blower motor...

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    "nOh... nOh... nOh... O'Reilly's NOT an option" :smile: I don't think I'll need shims, but I won't know for sure until I get it installed. I'm hoping to have a decision in the next couple of days if the starter really is the problem. When I say "click" is when the solenoid tries to engage the...

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    @MRRSM, thanks for the info and the link. Are you sure those spacers work for our 5.3L engine? @TJBaker57 I have measured the resistance from the relay pin to ground, it's settling around 2 ohms. Half of that seems to be introduced by the multimeter itself (shows ~1 ohm when connecting both...

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    Because I don't get why 🙃 I'll check that anyway. What value should I expect? I personally think it should show open circuit

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    "measure the resistance (to ground) from the relay contact going towards the starter." This is the only part that seems to be talking about the fuse panel. And it's confusing me. From relay contact to ground? Or to starter relay wire? As far as I know the relay sends power, not ground, to the...

    Aux Blower Motor Intermittent

    A friend of mine is going through the same situation, auxiliary blower having a mind of it's own. I have a spare resistor pack for it and will try to swap it for him tomorrow. I'll see how it goes and report back.

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    The problem with what you're saying is the tight space around the starter. I haven't checked for space behind the wheel, but I know that from under the car and from under the hood is kinda difficult. Especially because the multimeter doesn't have that long of leads. I've been thinking about...

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    Yeah, I noticed from the videos. Today it doesn't want to crank. Doesn't even click (clicked the first time without starting, and stopped clicking) I've checked the voltage between the +ve battery terminal and various points on the block, no issue there. At this point, it's either the wire...

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    @MRRSM Thanks for your suggestions, I'll be tackling some of them when I have the time. As for now, it seems like I've skipped mentioning some of the troubleshooting that I've done. I have already tried bypassing the starter relay like MAY03LT did in the video. It still does the same thing. I...

    Liftgate strut question

    The way I see it, the only difference it would make is how easy/hard it is for dirt and such things to get inside the cylinder and start ruining it! :undecided:

    SOLVED! No crank, sometimes clicks and other times doesn't

    Hi, it's me again! :bonk: My '06 Envoy XL Denali 5.3L LH6 has stopped cranking out of the blue. It's been sitting in the scrapyard since late 2011, so I can't get shocked if the starter suddenly went bad. After all that, I do believe that the starter needs replacing. I'm not sure what...

    SOLVED! Security light solid on

    Ok, I know I (kinda) told I'll look for the video later THAT night, but I'll do it today! But as far as I remember, he was a simple dude showing how to start the car (without key?? can't really remember) and after he started it the security light was on and he simply said it will stay on...

    I'm back! Time for an update. Sorry for the late reply, I got quite busy and the 'voy stopped cranking... Anyway, back to the subject! As I last posted, the GMC dealer bled the air out of the system. They told me I have half a pedal and would need a new MC. However, when I drove the car, the...

    NEED HELP 06 Envoy XL Denali Brakes

    Ok, so here's an update on the matter. I ended up paying $55 to get the car released from the stealership (it was a Chevy stealer). Turns out my father's friend knows someone in GMC's stealer. After getting in touch with him, he offered to check the vehicle and bleed the system free of...
