    Just heard on the news that cops have seized over 500 blank, dummy and LIVE rounds. Again, the question is, what are LIVE rounds doing anywhere near a movie set?

    Trailblazer off to the Kenny U Pull great beyond.

    Kinda sad to see it unceremoniously put out like that. But if somebody needs a motor, this would be the one to get. I got burned in 2011 when I got a replacement engine for my '02. Unbeknownst to me, it was poorly maintained and I wound up opening it several times for timing chain and VVT issues.

    What's seen in "New Posts"

    On another forum I'm on using the same , What's New does exactly that. However here, it acts the same as New Posts. What I sometimes use here is the Show Only: Unread at the top of the list to also show read posts, and they are in chronological post order.

    Rough idle when first started

    I agree. Topping off the tank is bad news. It can fill it so much that raw fuel can enter the charcoal canister. However, doing a bit of research, your issue may be caused by a faulty purge valve, the one at the motor. This guy had the exact same issue as yours and replacing the purge...

    Adjustable 5100 series Bilsteins or In Strut Lift Spacer.

    I have the 5100 in the back and they're good shocks, fairly stiff but not overly. If and when I do the fronts, I'll go with the 5100 adjustables to level it out.

    Trailblazer off to the Kenny U Pull great beyond.

    Kenny seems to be more generous than most yards. I got $650 for my son's rusted out '04 1500 Silvy. The thing they ask is does it run? They do some stripping of parts before sending it into the yard for the vultures and if it has a running engine, they might pull it first. I've seen some of...

    Get to work on my first 4.2!

    As you may know, it should be ACDelco 41-103 for a good running 4.2.

    Help problems with 2006 envoy.

    Not much changed in 06-07 except the location of the coolant temp sensor and the valve cover made of aluminum with new type of coils. 08-09 the crank reluctor wheel changed to 58x so those are only good for 08-09 trucks. All others are interchangeable.

    2005 Buick Rainier CXL Looking to buy / what to look for?

    The Rainier is pretty much the same as a TB or Envoy. Not really anything specific to look for except the usual stuff like brakes and ball joints or if there are any lights or codes. Sounds like it wasn't driven much so check that the brake rotors aren't rusted. If it's a 4.2, the water pump...

    Help problems with 2006 envoy.

    I've done it on my '02 and it's a bit of a project. There's the front diff and axles to deal with and space to access the bellhousing bolts is at a premium. Learned later here to use lots of extensions from the back under the truck to get to them. Removing the intake manifold also gives you...

    P0017 code and Knocking. Need help with next steps.

    Sounds like something is up with the timing chain system, which would explain the code. That code is possible if the chain jumped a tooth somewhere or the chain tensioning system has an issue allowing too much slack. Could be the tensioner itself or the guides that broke, which has happened in...

    However, in both cases, it was decisions at the top that started the chains of events that lead to their deaths. Heads will likely roll in this instance even if it is a big name actor/producer.

    Rough idle when first started

    I hate shotgunning but try replacing the gas cap. It has both a high pressure vent and a vacuum relief. Or leave the cap loose and see if things improve. You'll get a code for it but at least it shouldn't effect driveability and will relieve the vacuum.

    Youtube - Car Wizard - Tollkeeper?

    Comment I left; All the others he outed with actual recurring mechanical issues and he complains about the interior. It's like anything else, you can tell how well it's been maintained by looking at it.

    I remember this actor who accidentally shot himself with a blank. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon-Erik_Hexum And in recent years, I've noticed that even the use of blanks has been reduced where they use CGI for the muzzle flash. You can tell when the recoil is not there or faked. I can see...

    Shades of Brandon Lee. Devastating for all involved. I was also shocked that in this day and age that something like this could happen ever again. The inexperience of the armorer was also exposed as well as the crew's safety concerns hours prior to the incident. Might go all the way to the...

    07 Tahoe 5.3L DoD killed it, Mama wants a 6.0

    Ya, that 4L60e won't live long behind a cammed 6.0 and neither will the diff. You'll need to find one from a 6.0 Tahoe or Avalanche. I know my 6.0 Avalanche came with 4.10 gears, which would be pleasant with that engine :smile: .

    Never mind a canning, you're lucky I don't have a ban hammer! :laugh: I get where you're coming from on MPGs and that's what also drove my decision to get the Sierra, which beats your Kia with 31+ MPG highway and does at least 23 MPG city. Not everybody can afford a truck like this though...

    What did you do to your GMT today? [Part II]

    Gave some love to the TB. After doing an oil change on the Caprice prior to storage tomorrow, I also did the TB's since it was at 12% OLM and over a year since it was done. I have to drive it more. The brake rotors are rusting quite a bit and the parking brake hardly does anything. I may...
