    What did you do with your GMT400 today...or yesterday....

    Prestone level and oil color are unchanged from before the trip, guess I dodged the boooolitt this time. New fan clutch I hope will make enough difference so it dont climb above the 200 mark from now on. LOL

    What did you do with your GMT400 today...or yesterday....

    It sounded real good when He drove into the driveway, no smoke or anything like that. I think the temp gauge reads a tad bit high too. I`ll be taking it for a drive in a short while to find a blind hole bearing puller, see how it is then.

    Nice car. Welcome to thetruckstop. be careful which master cyl You put on the hydroboost. It must be a master that was specifically made for that year, make and model of truck that the boost came with. A guy I know had brake issues, parts store sold him masters for vac boosted units.

    What did you do with your GMT400 today...or yesterday....

    Had a dingaling sound coming from under neath the K3500. crawled under there with the rubber mallet, tapped this and that, then just sort of looked things over, the aha moment. airbag mounting bracket nuts on the bolts was backed off, tightenedum up and hopefully dingaling is now gone. LOL

    Thank You Big T for the infurmashun. I`ll probably wait until this winter to mess with those. Working during the summer so when I`m not working I try to not do a thing. LOL

    Door Lock Actuators

    Actuators in the doors on the K3500 act just like what Yours is doing. I thought about replacing the actuators but just wanted to be sure it was actually the actuator and not a possible bad ground, within the door or on the door itself, grounding through the hinge pins and no ground wire within...

    Need help

    Along with all the other advice, if You have not done so already, disconnect the battery negative cables for about a minute then hook them back up, after that, take the truck for a drive and see what codes pop up.

    Accelerator wires and sparks and big trucks and stupid GMC designers and anything else not covered

    Hang in there and I hope You are able to get the issues resolved. I wonder how far it would be to get the truck over to Leroy diesel. I think He could get it up and going in no time.

    Accelerator wires and sparks and big trucks and stupid GMC designers and anything else not covered

    Nice truck. When My first PMD failed, engine would rev to redline, fuel would shut off, engine would die to an idle, then back to red line.
