2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

This year of truck did have issues with rear disc brakes. Quality of pads is extremely critical. Go with the AC Delco pads and rotors to eleviate some of the issue. Make sure that the slide pins are liberally lubricated and move freely or drag will cause excessive heat to occur. Let me know if you need anything else.

The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.

I think there is a wiring connector in the harness that may be loose or corroded. Trace wires from back to front.

There are two vent/purge valves - one on the engine that takes vapor from the gas tank and cycles it into the intake manifold. The other one is connected by a hose to the vapor canister. I don't know which one you bought, but it can't hurt to replace both - the one that fails most often is the one connected to the canister and is usually mounted under the vehicle at the back. It often fails due to road contamination getting into the solenoid.

could be drivetrain parts such as c.v. or U joints.
could be fuel system clog somewhere.
could be a bad sensor.
We will need more detailed information.

It sounds like you have a ground problem. Have you checked to see that the "new" battery is fully charged? Have you checked to see if the starter motor is getting current when you try to start the truck? Have you checked to see if the battery cables and terminals are corroded, or the cables themselves corroded at any point? You also might have an ignition switch problem due to age or use. You also might have a computer problem that is keeping the circuits from connecting properly. If you have a OBD II scanning tool, it might well tell you exactly where the problem is. Scanners are inexpensive and available almost everywhere. I bought mine through Amazon for less than $25 including shipping.

If the transmission isn't shifting out of second, it's in "limp in" mode and there will be a trouble code stored in the computer. Start by getting the trouble code instead of trying to guess is a certain wire is the problem

Hey RPG, There is a sensor on the side of the output shaft (Speedo).. Mine had become covered with metal crud and would not work,, pulled it out, cleaned it,..(replace the o-ring on the sensor!!) and it ran fine.. This might not work for you, but it did for me. Next.. take it too O'Reilly's, Auto Zone, or Advance Auto and ask the to scan you truck for a trouble code..(free) and see what turns up.. Good Luck..

our temperature control actuator is bad. It's a little motor that moves the temp door. They are about $70 at the dealer. To change it you need to remove the knee trim panel on the passenger side (3 screws, 7mm socket). The actuator is in the center above the transmission hump. It has one harness plugged into it and 2 screws (5.5 mm). Take the screws out and it should drop straight down. Align the actuator with the lever on the door and put the screws in. Plug the harness back in. Turn your temp control to cold and remove the HVAC 1 fuse. Should be in the fuse panel on the drivers side of the dash. Turn your key to run and leave it on for at least 1 minute. Turn your key back off and put the fuse back in.
P.S. The trim panel is a PITA to get off, so while you have it off check to see if you have the cabin air filters and change them while you are under there.

Also there is an article in the Tech Corner on changing the cabin air filters.
