    1999 service 4wd issue

    there's shift sensors on your transfer case aswell and the front axle if i recall. if the 4wd shift position switches are getting faulty if the tccm sees an intermittent signal it can cause all kinds of wierd stuff. as exp stated the tccm has its own fault codes that are quite helpful here as...

    Rear main info

    well above argument about mobil 1 aside when a rear main is ready to start leaking its all or nothing and will only progressively get worse. nothing you add to it will help much if at all because its a rotational seal. making it to 230k is more suprising for some as a rear main can start as...

    Front wheel bearing education

    through the years ive used just about every easily accessible brand of hubs you can get. anything other than timken or directly from the dealership i didn't get any longevity from. they few brands i didn't get to use may have been from skf and other above noted bearing brands.

    windshield wipers not aligned right

    decided to watch that video as i haven't had my tahoe in a while. just like i remember in the video prior to him completely removing the wiper drive arms you can see slots on the bolt holes. thats so you can adjust the arms separately not together as he was doing. it may take some penetrant...

    windshield wipers not aligned right

    if i recall there is some adjustment. however as the work was just recently completed instead of fighting with it yourself just take it back to the shop and request they fix it. the wipers are typically removed for the work they did so they put it back together wrong.

    Truck wont crank

    jumping the starter can be done with cables but isnt ideal. either way the point is to bypass the solenoid on the starter and force it to try to turn the engine. if your going to try with cables clamp the ground to the starter mounting bolt and touch the positive cable off the opposite large...

    Rim sizing is about to make my head explode

    far as ive noticed for the most part when using different factory tires just run the tire size that was intended to have been on those rims and your good. well for an easy choice atleast. plenty of other tire sizes you could match it with.

    2.5 inch vs 3 inch muffler

    nope especially with just a muffler swap. regardless of the persons misconception about exhaust systems a typical performance system for your vehicle is 3in. those companies actually spent research time on what the best exhaust would be. going too small or too large can have adverse effects...

    1999 Red OBS 4dr Tahoe owner

    easiest thing to check is your pitman and idler arms as they can be checked visually on the ground. another easy visual check is above the steering box is a coupler with what is basically a piece of tire being used as the actual coupler. if the pitman arms are moving and the tires aren't...

    99 Tahoe w/ P0171, P0174, and P0305

    as everyone has been suggesting the intake manifold is a likely cause of alot of your issues. the ignition coil was replaced are you aware of the symptom or was this just an attempt at fixing your current issue. your truck has 3 components up top that handle your ignition and timing. cam...
