    transmission cooler lines

    I was able to do mine without moving the exhaust. 4 ramps makes a world of difference. the extra 6 inches are a must. I could see exactly where my hand was that way.... all I needed to do was lower the trans crossbrace/trans and pull it to the drivers side with a ratchet strap... It's still...

    Power steering lines

    Got the lines wrapped up today. Not as rough as I was expecting, but not a simple job. I opted to remove the fuse box as the service manual states. Worked out fine. I did end up having to pull our the pump as I could not get the pressure line off the pump... my wrenches kept round it...

    Power steering lines

    It's going to be a one day project. Morning to evening. Most of the clips and what not have oil/fluid on them from previous repairs. I have seen a few videos of different people changing them and some different tricks. I'll have it up on ramps and stands so I'll have plenty of room to work...

    How long do you plan on keeping your Trailblazer / Envoy?

    Well... since the world has shut down and now i'm making a lot less money, i'm glad I didnt buy a truck yet... there's still hope if the economy opens back up, but till then i'll settle for the small few hundred dollars in parts here and there instead of the $500/mo payment for a newer truck.

    Snapped bolt holding power steering line to rack and pinion

    looking at the gm parts site, it doesn't list size, but the part number is specific to our platform, and only used on the steering rack, nowhere else. part number 26084815. #2 in the diagram.

    SOLVED! GM-SI Install problems

    I think you need to change the screen resolution within the vm system, I have mine changed, and it looks fine on my end. (this is a screenshot from my 14" laptop with the vm in a windowed mode... Edit: that or you could try setting text size to largest and going into internet explorers setting...

    SOLVED! GM-SI Install problems

    you can extract the virtual drive image from the viewer and use regular virtualbox or vmware to run it instead of the viewer. that's how i originally had it on my win10 pc, then converted it to run on the server.

    SOLVED! GM-SI Install problems

    Already solved, I created a user share and mapped it to the vm, so within the vm I just print to pdf into that mapped drive and it saves it on the share in the server which I can access from any of my devices.

    SOLVED! GM-SI Install problems

    I wouldnt, running the vm from the mapped drive would be super slow. I was able to map a folder into the vm on the server, so now i just print to the server drive and can access from any pc or my phone/tablet in the house or out of the house thanks to my vpn.

    SOLVED! GM-SI Install problems

    I had a ton of trouble getting it to run after extracting the VM and converting it to an IMG and it had constant crashing until I found out I had to change the Driver within the VM. I used a registry file called "MergeIDE" and I was able to boot the vm on my server no problem. Only thing I...
