2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4WD engaged at high speed

My wife drove my 1500 4WD Chevrolet Silverado in excess of 45 MPH while the 4LO (down arrow) was engaged. She drove my truck all day. I haven't had a chance to drive my truck. I need advise what to look for and what kind of damage, if any, was done.

Have a complete service done on your truck. When your fluids are changed, have the technician look for metal particles in them. While some are common, if a lot are present, it may indicate sever wear. I would look for this especially in the engine oil. Though I doubt any damage was done, that was for sure very stressful on your truck. I didn't know that a truck would go that fast in 4low. Also watch the behavior of your transmission and engine. Your transfer case should be shifted a few times too.

1999 Silverado has an engine surge of 200-500 RPM at 45 to 55 MPH


sounds a little like a cruise control problem.
they used to have a centering adjustment that kept the speed within a range. If the range somehow shifted to the high end this would cause your surge. it would be a screwdriver slot on the outside of the case.cw increase ccw decrease. yours is set too high or cw.
I work the screw back and forth several times in case dirt entered the cruise module.

I have a 1995 Silverado 4x4. The 4WD will not engage. Someone told me it may be the actuator for the transfer case. When I try to shift into 4hi, nothing happens. When I try to shift into 4lo, it grinds...


I HAD A BLAZER WITH THE SAME SYMPTOMS REPLACED THE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR AND SOLVED PROBLEM. TRANSFER CASE MOTOR SHIFTS FROM HIGH TO LOW GEAR IN THE TRANSFER CASE AND TELLS THE FRONT ACTUATORS TO INGAGE FRONT HUBS . MOTOR WON'T MOVE TO 4 HIGH AND GRINDS WHEN TRYING TO MOVE TO 4 LOW, TRANSFER CASE MOTOR FAILING . CHECK VACUUM LINES AND ACTUATORS ON FRONT DIFF THEY FAIL, CAN CHANGE TO CABLE ENGAGEMENT INSTEAD OF FAILURE PRONE VACUUM ACTUATORS.

WONT SHIFT INTO 4HI BUT WILL SHIFT INTO 4LOW


Are you sure that the actuator on the front differential is actually engaging? On my 99 silverado, the truck acts as if it is in 4lo when the button is pushed but the front wheels don't actually spin. Get on the ground and listen to whether or not the actuator engages.You should be able to hear it hum. If it doesn't then i would say it is the actuator which is common. Good Luck!

99 silverado wont gain speed


Make sure the fuel filter is clean. You may need to drive it with a fuel pressure gauge. Fuel pressure should be 55-62 psi. It its lower , the fuel pump may need to be replaced. Replace the fuel filter. Replace the filter every 10-15k miles.

2002 Chevy Silverado clunking noice when shift from 2wd to 4hi


It is somewhat Normal Depending on how Loud the Clunking is. This is a Common Complaint on the Chevy 4x4's. I have verified this through the Dealerships here in Oklahoma and they all say the Same thing But, I am with you, They should go into 4x4 without that Clunk for as much as we pay for them.

Speedometer reading fluctuates


IMHO, I think that the broken cable is what is causing the problems. It "confuses" the programing of the CPU or computer.
