2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 5.3L steering system VIN: 2GCEK13T34
Hi all, this one has me stumped as I haven't heard this before. Sounds like a brake pad squeal high pitched, but only makes noise when running and you turn the steering wheel on dry pavement a quarter turn either way, then like back off an eighth turn. Can hea...

1997 Buick Regal LS 3.8L Cuts out, Stall VIN: 2G4WB52K5V
Let me start by thanking everybody for all of the suggestions. In the end the fix was a bit muddled. Not sure which was more of the problem the shorted wires to the crank sensor or the partially fried PCM. I thought it strange to have a "good" signal from the ...
1967 Chevrolet Impala 5.3L don't know VIN: N0TAVA1LBL
Thank you to all that replied to the help request. As many indicated, the calipers were the likely cause. It is hard to prove, but we got OK from customer to replace calipers. After finding someone who actually had rebuildable cores or rebuilt units, we rep...

We soaked in a can of 44K thru the PCV line, with an orifice so it took a couple of minutes for the 44k to get in, let it soak, it feels a bit smoother, but no change on the misfire counts. Remember this is a new MFI not CFI, so pop... Trouble codes: P0300 (p0304-), P0304 (testing and results).
1995 Oldsmobile 98 Regency Elite 3.8L cam/crank sensor VIN: 1G3CX52K4S
Ok, so the owner decided to drive it like it is instead of attempting a new pcm, seems to be the issue, also just for information, Tech line advised that this is a 95, with OBDII plug with OBD programming, so if a miss occurs the pcm can only interpret it as a...
2008 Saturn Aura XR 3.6L Mechanical VIN: 1G8ZV57748
Thanks to all who replied. Job is done successfully without lift. Used engine support on front & rear of engine maybe adding 1hr of additional work. Actually I don't know if dropping engine & trans w/sub-frame would be much easier. Aligned 4 wheels when done. ...
