    The "new" diehard batteries...

    So I ended up with one of these guys the other night.. actually last night and just thought I would give my take on it. First the vette goes through batteries every two years on the nose. Battery tender or not. Expensive AGM or cheap Walmart unit. Without fail they all last equally as long...

    Odometer error?

    So I've been occasionally driving the work truck just so it doesn't sit all winter. It's an 07 classic 2500hd. (The 03 and up NBS trucks) long story short, last week it said odometer error on the screen. Now this has the basic cluster with hours, trip and odometer. So I thought nothing of it...

    NEED HELP Brake squeak driving me F*&^%$# insane!

    I literally quit. Like I have thrown every god damn trick I can at this thing short of lighter fluid and a match. So here it is. 2003 Escalade, 270k miles or something like that and we just finally replaced one of the stock calipers. It was nice, came from GM with a new bracket, hardware and...

    Hey guys... so I'm a noob as far as setting up gears but I'm sure some of you can help me. I just finished assembling the front diff on the escalade and I was checking the drive and coast patterns... I'm not sure what to be looking for but this is what I have. First two are drive second two are...

    NEED HELP What would you stick in a weather pack connector?

    So as it turns out the new ballasts have relatively loose fitting weather packing. My high voltage side had water in it and that was causing the no fire problem... Should I pack it with dielectric grease or something to prevent water leaking in? IDK if I want to silicone it because if water did...

    NEED HELP Relay harness buzzing?

    Hid gurus chime in. So I finished the retrofit on the truck today... but I have an issue. I used the cap link and all necessary harnesses and the lights work fine while the car is off (using the switch.) Once I start it it runs for ten seconds or so and then after a minute or two it dies. Now...

    Little blazers 2019 Colorado z71 build

    Owned for less than 24 hours... Step 1 is front window tint. Will report back soon. I'm also thinking projector retrofit, the 4TL-R projectors replace the factory ones and I'd go all OEM for bulbs and ballasts. The other big things are bug deflectors, in channel rain guards and removing the...

    So... I test drove a 2019 colorado z71 crew cab long box today.... and liked it... I am in the position where I could afford to buy it but... I still really like my truck. I am just at the point where with the driving I am doing I don't want to have to worry about the truck breaking down. Here...

    Getting into sausage making.

    Afternoon gents. As some of you may have seen, over the last year or so I've started into the foray of sausage making. And I must say it's a disease. I started with the stand mixer grinder attachment for my kitchenaid. That worked pretty good for meat but not so well for stuffing. So for...

    SOLVED! Did I kill my trans or did I just mess up something...

    Good morning. Through the weekend I spent several hours of triumph and failure while working on the escalade. To keep a long story short, I did the CT power train kit with pinless accumulators like so. 1-2 I used the pinless and left factory springs in. 4th in the trans case, I didn't flip and...

    Learn me something about transmissions...

    The Escalade continues to perplex me on exactly wtf is going on with it. Somedays it shifts like a brand new transmission. Other days (like today) it essentially has no 2-3 shift and is practically undrivable. The problem I'm having with this is that there is absolutely zero reason for it to...

    Trailblazer coming back... sort of...

    What the actual hell GM. https://www.motortrend.com/news/chevy-bringing-back-trailblazer-name/ "Slotted between the Trax and Equinox" so a compact midsize... why. Because those two weren't turds enough as it was you had to add in something else?

    GM TSB on cold start noises. (Full size)

    They're calling the noises that the tahoe makes normal... meanwhile the TSB basically states it is a design fault. SMH.

    Reccomend me a 4 channel amp

    Good morning fellas. I'm in the market for my third amp for the truck. Let me give you the low down. I originally ran the door speakers off the headunit until I added the sub. The headunit did an alright job but couldn't really keep up. So I added the first amp which was a blaupunkt unit...

    Amazon Product Noco Jump Packs on Sale...

    I've had these earmarked for a while until they went on sale. This jumped a dead battery on the diesels on the boat and it pretty much sold me so I figured I would share. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016UG6PWE/?tag=elightbars-20

I've called yards around me but they won't tell me what they have, they just tell me to come look or no. So me...

    Littleblazer's 2018 Tahoe review as it sits now... (Ongoing impressions)

    Good evening everyone, I'm going to write this as a sort of short form type review, simply posting my thoughts and observations as they come to me. Since I have plenty of seat time in 360s (and 800s) this is new to me. So without further procrastination, my initial observations. Displacement on...

    Strange vibration...

    Hey guys, got a quick question. The truck seems to be developing some strange behavior in the last few days. Basically what's happening is it runs fine. But if I beat on it a little, say rev up to 4k to merge or whatever then shortly after come to a stop, I have a strange vibration. It feels...

    Damn it GM... (Fog lights on a 2018 Tahoe)

    So as some of you may know and some of you may not, my mom treated herself to a 2018 Tahoe. Long story short the only damn thing she wants that it doesn't have is fog lights. Now much like our trucks, there is BCM reprograming required and the switch has to be replaced. But the problem is, the...

    Transmission question...

    So I have an 03 escalade. The truck has something to the effect of 260k miles on it and the trans has a sort of slipping feeling shifting through the gears. At first I thought the trans is shot but the fluid doesn't smell burnt and it has a nice red color for being in there 60k or so. Basically...

    Power steering issue.

    So I have an interesting issue, I believe it is simply my power steering pump, however the problem I am having is at speed my power steering works fine. Driving in a parking lot it does not. If I throw the truck in neutral and bring the rpms up around 1100 it comes mostly back. I don't have belt...

    (Poll) Ignition switch question...

    So here's the thing, I've been driving the truck a lot for work lately (~1000 miles a week) and I've had this in the back of my mind now for a while. I have yet to replace my ignition switch in the roughly 100k I've had the truck. That being said I think I have some symptoms of it going out. For...

    Do the light sensors go bad?

    Just curious. I was driving the truck yesterday on the highway. Like 10:30 am really bright and sunny and all of a sudden the dash dimmed and stayed that way for a minute or two then went back to normal. I was in the shade briefly on an on ramp but it was just tree shade, not normally enough to...

    Anyone build a short block? Got a quick question...

    When I was building the short block on the 383 one of the ring lands had a nick in it. Basically the lower compression ring would stick on this. So I took some sand paper to the landing until it moved freely. I have been thinking about this since I put it together and am starting to wonder if...

    Quick muffler question.

    Just curious, I did a quick search and was looking through my manual and couldn't get a clear answer. Where the muffler connects to the catalytic converter, is that just a ball used to seal the muffler to the flange or is it actually a doughnut that needs to be replaced? I am assuming a doughnut...

    Quick water pump question...

    I've heard mixed opinions. Should I rtv the water pump gasket or put it on dry or use Indian head or something similar. The one we used last time we put a thin layer of rtv on so I'm interested in hearing from everyone.

    *Need Input* Dealing with things that others can't. (Or in other words they don't know what they are doing)

    *About to enter a triggered rant that has been brewing for a couple of days* So, the sierra, an 07 nbs 2500hd with the 6.0l, developed an oil leak a few weeks ago. Thirty seconds of tracking showed me it was the oil cooler lines leaking. Now it is a company truck so dad sent it out for the...

    NEED HELP (Aka I effed up...)

    So there was an accident. Long story short the drivers seat in the envoy turned into shrink wrap... No one would happen to just have a lower seat laying around would they? I called the local yards and they only have cloth... I feel really bad because it isn't even my truck. I was doing something...

    Should I be concerned?

    So I pulled the seat out of my truck for reasons unrelated. Any way under the seat were a pair of wires that had the ends cut off... I don't think there anything important, perhaps seat heat or something but I just want to like make sure that if I were to get into an accident that this isn't for...
