NOTE: CAR SALES SCAM. The check the “buyer” sends you is a fake. If you deposit it into your account and then obtain a Cashiers Check for the difference and send it to the accomplice, it will be cashed before the fake check you deposited is returned to your bank and charged back to you account. You will be ripped off for the amount of the Cashiers Check that you sent. You might want to warn the members in the magazine.

Some or all of the below is from our message board at http://board.chevyclub.com and this is just a part of what appears there and in the member magazine.

Also be sure to see our message board on our website for immediate help from fellow members.

Q:     I drive a 1500 and it will start sometimes but other times it wont. It acts like it is going to start but wont take that final step. The check engine light is on. When it does start, it starts hard. Any suggestions on what it might be?

Mike W

A:     It is likely caused by whatever is making your check engine light come on. Take it to Autozone or advance auto parts and have them check your codes (free of charge) and repair the parts that are not functioning.

Chevy Club


Q:     What causes my 1998 Chevy Malibu to run for about thirty minutes and then shut down.

Ted Phillips

A:     It could be a number of things, check the carb first, get some carb cleaner and spray it in there, it could be it's sticking and causing it to shut down, or you could have a leak in the fuel pump or it could be defective, just because it's new or replaced doesn't mean it functions properly, it could have been installed wrong too or not tight enough, it could be your catalytic converter too, and that's a whole mess that you don't want to deal with.

In the News!

2011 Silverado HD

2011 Silverado HD Chevrolet Silverado HD arrived at the Chicago Auto Show riding on an all-new ladder frame, suspension, and axles – about the only carry-over part is the front stabilizer bar link that connects the stabilizer bar to the lower control arm. Maximum towing capacity is up to 20,000 pounds with the DRW Duramax diesel and fifth wheel combo (yes, that trumps the Ford F-Series Super Duty F-350 apples to apples). The gasoline-fed SRW 6.0-liter V-8 engine will pull 14,500 pounds with a fifth wheel.

In addition to the beefy hood, the front bumper has been revised with a larger emblem and a more gaping intake – designed to improve transmission cooling. Other improvements include 17-inch wheels (standard) or optional new 18- or 20-inch alloys. The dual rear-wheel tires are still 17-inch, but they now accommodate taller aspect ratio tires. The improvements for 2011 are all good news for heavy duty truck buyers with the exception of the wheel bolt pattern – the eight-lug hub has a slightly different measurement meaning 2007-10 wheels simply won’t fit. See the rest of the details in the press release after the break.
