    NEED HELP Rust along bottom of my rear doors

    The bad thing is that it is in the seam. If I cut it out on the back before it gets to the outside maybe I can save it for awhile. Just afraid it will keep going along that seam. :badday:

    Torque converter locking in and out

    Good timing for me... Mine has been taking a long time to lockup and seems varies a lot. I just had mine flushed at 148K The mechanic said it was very thick. He also added a can of BG additive. Still have not done the filter. If I have a shop do it what else can they do without a teardown...

    Solved: suddenly barely runs

    Thanks for the offer Reprise. I got 2 now. The snakes hit 2 of my cars. My wifes CTS also had water in it 2 weeks prior. The worst part is not knowing who. I don't know who would hate on me , or is somebody jealous cause I have decent cars. IDK

    Solved: suddenly barely runs

    It was full of water. Some sick person poured at least a gallon of water in my tank. They got both my vehicles 12 days apart. Sitting in front of the sign shop I work at. During the day the only people are out back building signs. They just lock the front door and customers have to walk in the...

    Solved: suddenly barely runs

    I need to do more reading haha You mentioned Bluetooth software. Ok I got torque lite. Hopefully I can find the adapter locally. Will torque lite check fuel pressure? Right now it only has one screen showing accel. Looks like it wants the obd adapter.

    Solved: suddenly barely runs

    Seems like fuel pump. It will start and idle at 1000 rpm smooth for a few seconds and then just gets worse. I pulled the purge valve/solenoid near the tank. It starts out open and closes when I apply 12v. I unhooked the O2 sensor in the manifold. It jumps to 20 ohms and drops slowly. Between d...

    Solved: suddenly barely runs

    Also I think I cleaned the iat sensor not the maf. It is the closest one to the air filter. It just sticks into the airflow. Not a screen. Hope I did not screw it up. Does my truck have MAF? getting confused

    Solved: suddenly barely runs

    03 trailblazer cranks but wont start

    Maybe not be related but when my purge solenoid went out it would not start right after getting fuel. Experts here will have to correct me but there is 2 of them, one is not a solenoid. One is near the tank/charcoal canister and one on the side of the engine. About halfway down on the drivers...
