And into 3rd about 45 or 50 it feels like. The gentleman advertised the truck in excellent condition, with no rust. After inspecting the frame, there is excessive rust on the main frame and one of the cross members is nearly rusted through. And i've even tried to shift it manually but that doesn't help either. I checked the wiring from the door to the door jam. If it does'nt, then check for power.
If its original that is most likely the problem. I say that because I want you to keep it in the back of your mind so you are checking while working on other things. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred. The measurements of the trucks are: 194. Or I notice their is some kind of a vacume hook up on the passenger side of the tranny, thank you all. While driving 85 mph, there was an uncontrollable vibration coming from underneath the vehicle near the transmission. I think gm should be responsible for defective torque converters as I have read more customers have had the same problem.
Unscreww the actuater out of the front axle, put it in 4wd, with the key in the run position, does the actuater get longer? Dan Update: Thanks for the help! Also, based on the miles, you may want to check the engine compression. And then into 3rd at about 30mph. And it keeps getting worse but otherwise no slipping between gears and it hooks up and goes on the highway. I tried while stopped, too, and it never engaged. When it happens I can feel a pulse in the gas pedal and hear an audible sound in the engine compartment it sounds as though the throttle body is slamming back into place as though its not recieving enough gas. Whether they are leaking or not I don't know.
After reading all of the horror stories from other owners on various web sites, I am terrified every time I drive it that the brakes are going to fail. However it is the same issue. When I took it to deacon jones Chevrolet in smithfield nc, they replaced the torque converter at no charge. Chrome bumpers and chrome mirrors were also a Silverado option. It does not do it while shifting but when running at a steady speed.
The vehicle was taken back to the dealer who informed the contact that the wax rust proof coating was a temporary remedy and would eventually wear off. Since the truck was still starting and running just fine, I figured I would leave it be and I'd get around to fixing it eventually. Probably the only time I'll ever have to replace it. The dealer informed the contact that they would remove all of the rust and corrosion and apply a new undercoating. I jacked the truck up, so that I could replace the exhaust. If it does take a punch or screwdriver and push in on the plunger in the axle, you may need to rotate on of the front wheels slightly, does it slide into position? I had the same problem once and that was it.
The back fire is coming from the exhaust. When the vacuum like is plugged the idle will be steady then drop then come back to steady idle. Again I went with napa ceramic pads they caused the breaks to squeal when the brakes were applied. My truck has a intermittent rough Idle.

This truck is nine years old and only has 63k miles. The truck's shoulder room measures 50 inches and hip room 60. When I test drove the truck, I noticed it needed new a exhaust, and shocks. This is a 1999 Silverado 1500 5. Please issue a recall for these problems before people are injured or killed because the frame has broken or the brakes have failed. It runs smoother now and not so doggy when I turn the steering wheel and brake. I went through the receipts, and most of them were from oil changes.
The trucks are equipped with two doors and have a curb weight ranging from 3,655 pounds on the smallest two-wheel drive, 6. It has a rougher idle when the truck is in gear than out of gear. I called the shop that did the clutch and they're not sure, but asked me to bring it in. He told me he had purchased the same vehicle with the same transmission issues. The gentleman told me that all the receipts are in the glove box, from work that was done on the truck.
