    Begging for help on finding correct parts PLEASE?

    Hi, I've been searching these forums and every auto parts store online and I really can't figure out exactly what I need to buy so I am hoping someone might be able to help. I promise I'm not just being lazy and looking for someone to spoon feed me this information. I'm really stuck. The guys...

    Apparent Fuel leak ... any common starting points?

    OK, I most certainly will. Also, at some point I will become a paying member. I promise. It's the least I can do. I'm sorry that I haven't shelled out anything as of yet. Me = 💩!

    Apparent Fuel leak ... any common starting points?

    Thanks Mooseman (As always). That gives me a place to start investigating. I appreciate it. Is it worth posting what I find or is this too random of a problem do you think?

    Apparent Fuel leak ... any common starting points?

    Hey Guys, This is kind of a random question. Probably a dumb one but I love coming here, as I have over the years, and for what it's worth, I'm grateful for all the help I have received. So as I exit the vehicle ('06 Envoy SLT), I smell gas so apparently there's a leak. Nothing under the...

    AC Pressure drops to zero when clutch engages

    Thanks so much for your reply. I am going to work on it this weekend. I didn’t realize the OBDII adapter read the AC high pressure level so that’s good news. I will report back and with any luck I won’t be climbing out of the vehicle soaking wet from sweat soon! Thank You again and have a...

    AC Pressure drops to zero when clutch engages

    Thank Ypu for your reply. I have a confession. When I replaced the compressor and recharged it, it never really got that cold. Just cool. I hooked up the gauge again and I had in fact overcharged it. I left it alone when I parked it. Once I started it back up and summer came, I removed some...

    AC Pressure drops to zero when clutch engages

    Hey Guys, I'm not sure I even want to open this can of worms. I don't know enough about A/C systems to now exactly what I am doing. Just what I've read on here. I replaced the A/C compressor about 1.5 years ago along with everything else I was supposed to replace. I flushed the system and...

    Need advice please on RTV

    Hey thank You for the advice. After the original lines had rusted through, when I did the transmission swap, I installed braided hoses with AN fittings for the trans coolant lines. So after finally being able to get some time on my buddy's lift, I was able to run the car while in the air and I...

    Need advice please on RTV

    So even wit the new pan and gasket and buying/using an inch lbs. torque wrench, the battle to quell the TF leak(s) ensues. I've used a fairly good borescope to check the lines and fittings which were homemade AN fittings I made to replace the rotted out hardlines that started this debacle to...

    Need advice please on RTV

    Thanks a lot for your advice. I did what you suggested and got a ne rubber gasket, a new pan which was cheap under $30 and kind of an upgrade because it has a drain plug. And I didn't use RTV. I on;y took it for a short test drive to get some food. No leaks yet but the real test will be...

    Need advice please on RTV

    Hi, I’m currently battling a bad transmission fluid leak. I think I’ve narrowed it down to the pan gasket. I checked the pan for level edges and it’s not oerfect. Looks like it may have been over tightened at one point. So I’ve always been told not to use RTV on trans pans but feel like this...

    Strange cooling behavior?

    Hi. Well I’m fairly sure that the climb came on fairly quick inside the car wash. It LS a really dinky carwash snd the trio though can’t take more that 2 minutes tops. I noticed the raise in temp near the end. When you pull out two people dry it for about a minute. The whole time I was watching...

    Strange cooling behavior?

    Thanks Mooseman. I’m going to do the test tonight. All of these replies make sense so I’m going to start with the one that doesn’t cost anything to check. ive got much bigger problems at the moment. I’ll report back once the test is done. Thanks again!

    Strange cooling behavior?

    Hey Guys. I am all of a sudden having all kinds of problems with my Envoy. Multiple problems I will be attempting to diagnose at the crack of dawn tomorrow but one of them has me stumped and hoping someone with a bigger brain than me (Not hard to find) can help me understand what's going on...

    Sluggish-ness

    Hey Beacon, thanks for the reply. The thing say for 18 months, I then spent a month replacing the transmission and a lot of of other parts, upgraded some things snd did a boat load of rust removal. Everything from the skate tire hoist to the trans oil cooler was touched. I drove it for a month...

    Help request in identifying the Differential in my Envoy?

    Dang it, I only ever posted a “before” pic of the rear end of the truck? What good is that? It’s not a Jenny Craig ad with just the fat version of someone. Here’s a pic after dust removal and a quick rattle canning of whatever paint I had on the shelf. It was either that black, Orange parking...

    Sunroof glass question

    Hehe Why the loathing of the Aztec Sunroof? BTW, I’m replacing the sunroof glass only tonight so I will post pics and any tips on the forum on the off chance that I have any hints to offer after I’m done. The one and only thing I could find info on to replace just the glass and not the...

    Sluggish-ness

    Hey Guys. This is kind of a vague question so forgive me in advance, but here goes. Ruling out a worn out engine just tired from a lot of miles, it has a clean air filter, no CEL, no miss or stumbles on acceleration, spark plugs are good, the parking brake is disengaged and not dragging, nor...

    Sunroof glass question

    I agree. Im Not a fan of sunroofs. About the only time I’ve used it in 16 years wad maybe twice at night in the summertime. I had T-Tops back in the day and another car that you could remove the center section of the roof and both of those were when in Sunny California and never uses them...

    Sunroof glass question

    Ahhh Hi Mooseman! How's it going? I'm back to working on the Envoy. Now that the Covid disaster seems to be on the decline (fingers crossed!), things are starting to open up again and I'm back to work and so I need to get the Envoy back in action. Of course this is the first and only place...

    Sunroof glass question

    Hi Thank You for your reply, Yes the glass is broken. There's a tennis ball sized hole and the rest is cracked all over the way tempered glass is supposed to I guess. I started driving and the first corner i turned I heard what sounded like pebbles sliding around in the headliner. Slid open...

    Has anybody replaced trans lines with braided hose, stainless steel or nylon?

    I that I'm late to the party on this topic but in case anyone else reads it for information. I live in North New Jersey. I replaced my trans with a used one that I bought from one of these used transmission warheouse's for lack of a better term. It was a huge warehouse with rack after rack of...
