I'm a newbie to this forum so bear with me, I traded my Tacoma off for a 2013 Silverado 1500 when I took a new job 5 months ago. I work on the road and haul my camper wherever we go.

Clutch Issues....

Hey folks,

I recently picked up a 1990 1500 with the V6. Since I bought it I noticed that the only way to shift from 1st to 2nd without it grinding is to double-clutch it. Also, it will not downshift into 2nd without grinding unless stopped. All other gears shift just fine and when I double-clutch it even 1st to 2nd is fine every time. But coming up to a stoplight I can only engine ...

Fluid didn't smell, and didn't really seem overly burnt. I compared the new ...

1999 Sierra 4wd problem

I have a Sierra 1500, it's a 99 and I'm having 4wd issues. 4lo, auto 4wd both work but 4hi does not. The actuator on the front diff works fine, and I can hear the t-case engage in 4lo and auto 4wd. I was thinking encoder motor but before I go spend a bunch of money on one I wanted to get some advice. Push button switch seems to work fine. When I push the ...

Sudden hard shifting from first to second gear Sudden hard shifting from first to second gear

2007 Silverado Crew Cab Z71 LT 5.3 V8

So drove my truck out in campground to do some shooting this weekend. Drove through some tractor trails to get back there (pretty flat and only one spot that was slightly washed out). Top speed may have been 10mph there and back. I noticed on way back I heard something dragging. When I got back to the house I got busy with other things and forgot about ...
