    Also, this truck from purchase date got incredible mileage, 24mpg in city, 34 on road, no complaint there.This model had a recall on fuel injectors if they went bad for 200k miles as GM put in faulty parts. Though I never experienced any symptoms of them being bad(i have a 2002 model also that had to have them replaced) I was wondering if there was apossibility of the injectors malfunctioning and leaning out the fuel, causing the cracks. I had my cluster replaced the week before all this happened also Had lots of electrical problems prior to and after cluster. Any other ideas?

2003 Chevy needs transfer case replaced for the 2nd time


I just had my transfer case rebuilt on my 2002 2500 silverado duramax. They told me that the spring that holds the pump inplace in the transfer case wore a hold through the case. He said this was common on these transfer cases. Chevy has not acknowledge the problem. He designed a steel plate, with flanges that holds the pump in place and will not wear a hole in the case again. And as far as the post to engage it once a month, the chain turns even when in 2WHL drive.

#4 Cylinder (sleeve dropped) continued...


We have a 04 discovery with the same problem except it is cylinder #3. It has 62,000 perfectly maintained miles on it. There are three other 04's in service for the same problem. It is a defective motor and you shouldn't have to pay for their inability to make a motor that last's less than 100,000 miles or much more!
