Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

I have a 92 chevy silverado for two days it has been making a poping sound coming from the engine that increases in repitition when rpms are raised . today it made a horrificly loud grinding noise , and when i turned it off it sounded like a slow sliding noise like pistons against the wall , but i have full oil , put in a ppint extra and noise stopped momentarily but could still hear sliding when i turned engine off . Is this due to a faulyty oil pump ?

I have a 1992 chevy Silverado and wipers dont turn on at all what can I do

My database doesn't say Silverado, look at 92 chevy c1500 5.0L engine.
Check the fuse, not only check the fuse use a test light and check for voltage at fuse circuit. The circuit goes hot with the key on.

Why doesn't the heat come on in my 2005 Chevy Silverado heat unless engine is running above 1200rpm ?

educated guess is that you have an air lock in the cooling system and the heat is only apparent when the high rpms push the water into the heater core
find the highest point a undo the hose and let any air out ( cool engine only as the water may be hot)

1990 chevy silverado not turning over

Still sounds off. Take the #1 spark plug out, put your finger in the hole and have someone bump the starter around. As soon as you feel pressure, or a whoof sound (air coming out the hole), stop cranking. Look at your timing scale on the crankshaft pulley: You should be very close to the zero scale on the pointer. Put a socket and wrench on the crank pulley if needed to turn the crank on around (clockwise) until the notch or line on the pulley is right with the zero mark on the pointer scale. Now you are at top dead center of the compression stroke on #1. Take off the distributor cap. The rotor should be pointing directly to the #1 spark plug wire tower. Now that you have #1, follow the firing order around in the direction the rotor turns to check if each of your plug wires are in the right place. Firing order should be stamped on the intake manifold. If a 350 engine, firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. You might need to check that, only going by memory from couple days ago when I had to do this. The cylinders on the driver's side are 1-3-5-7, front to back. On the passenger side, cylinders are 2-4-6-8, front to back.

92 chevy c2500 very high idle

you might have gotten the throttle sensor wet, to the point that it shorted out. the throttle sensor is on the side of the throttle body / by the accelerator linkage. unhooking this sensor while the engine is running, will make the engine idle at or around 1500rpm....when you disconnect the sensor while the engine is running, and the RPMs go DOWN, then the sensor could be in the process of malfunctioning. if the RPMs go UP then the sensor is completely bad. either way, it will need to be replaced, and these are about $10 - $30, depending on where you get them.....places like auto-sone and napa have them in stock ALWAYS. also, invest in a diagnostic tester, because they really come in handy in situations like this and you can find one for as cheap as $25 at auto-zone AND napa.
