    Gentleman I have been put in charge of making a sticky with common questions asked on the forum. These include common problems (please provide fixes and pics), some of the common mods (provide pics, step by step instructions, etc.) i.e. not air ride but maybe leveling the rear or front. I am also leaving this up to you guys a bit, if you think it is good info then please post it up.

    This will be multiple stickies but will hopefully eliminate multiple posts on the same subject and also frustration from new users.

    What I have thought of so far:

    1) AFM and oil consumption
    Need fixes and common symptoms to look for.
    2) Dash cracks
    Need common locations with pictures.
    3) Rear defrost plugs breaking
    Need fixes and pics

    I haven't owned one of these in a few years so I know I am forgetting a ton of stuff.


    Keep the needless chatter out as it will be deleted and basically make my job harder.

    Thank you in advance for the help! :flowers2:

    The peeling handles tend to be a pretty common problem on only the 2007-2010 models with chrome handles.

    1. The door lock actuator is a problem with almost all model years.
    2. Then there is the remote lift gate open issues.
    3. The issues with door drains an trapped water in the door.
    4. Cabin temperature aspirator (sensor) buzzing too.

    If you're gonna do this for NNBS trucks might as well do the same for the K2XX trucks ... you know, so it's applicable to people less than seven years later. :flowers2:
