2005 Pontiac Vibe runs great but it is eating fuel.

My first guess is that your oxygen sensor has gone bad. However, I'd think you'd have an engine warning light come on. In my experience, a bad oxygen sensor can really mess up your fuel mileage, even though the car seems to run fine. I'll bet your friendly car shop can fix you up.

My 2005 Silverado Z71 has been running extremely rough, has lost power and sometimes hesitates when taking off from a stopped position. Is this a timing belt issue? A transmission issue? I just had the...

You do not have a timing belt, you have a timing chain that should be good for 200,000 miles or more. Could be fuel filter, fuel pump, vacuum leak or a host of other things. If you are not getting a service engine soon light, it is robably not a sensor. Could also be a plugged catalitic converter.
