Hi


The check engine light is on because ECM (Control Module) detected a fault with your car's system. ECM has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. You'll need to get the codes checked from a nearby dealer/mechanic. However, as you are facing surge issue, it can be due to bad plug, bad fuel injector or a bad egr valve.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

2000 Chevy Silverado parking lights stay on. Will not shut off


Are all parking lights on or just front daytime running lights only? Either case sounds like a light control module in your fuse panel stuck.

Wants to stall with lite gas peddle application


You could check and clean throttle body and iac control, see if it helps? Check the throttle position sensor. Does the fuel injector spray pattern look ok?
I would want to check fuel trims, to see if running rich or lean? Any more the 02 sensor is part of a tune-up.
Do you have good engine vacuum at idle? If this a high mileage engine, I'm not sure it will ever run perfect?
I don't know litre size of engine?

2005 chevy silverado misfires we changed plugs and wires no check engine light comes on at all goes dead when in gear


Have the PCM diagnosed, it may be defective. If the engine is really misfiring and you are dead sure of that the check engine light should be blinking at you. Are you sure the light works? Does the CEL prove out when key is turned to run?

2000 chevy silverado ,5.3 liter engine .service engine soon light on so scanned for problem codes ,results bank 1&2 are running lean .what is the cause or problem that needs to be done to fix


Check for loos connections between the intake and the tube from the air filter. Check if the clamp is loose or leaks in the tube which can cause an incorrect reading. Other than that it may be a dirty MAF sensor which can be fixed by spraying carb cleaning or tuner spray in the intake or it may be bad or a bad oxygen sensor;.

My oxegen sensor on my 2000 silverado chev. has been disconneted. what if any effect will that have on my truck ? tks


Your computer for the truck don't know what the lean ratio is of the gas, so it don't know how much air/gas ratio it should have which can cause bad gas mileage and failure codes (engine light). I produce these sensors at BOSCH and it can make a big difference if the engine don't know what the ratio is. If it's running to lean the it's not getting a good reading to mix the right amount of gas with the air. Vise versa

I have a 2000 chevy silverado Z71. The drl quit


There is a light sensor that tells the truck if it is night or day on the dash. Make sure that is it not covered up. If is is not then you may have a bad sensor. It sounds like the sensor is telling the truck that it is night every time the truck is running.

Start the tuck with the park brake on to see if the light come on when it starts. If they do you have a bad relay if not it is most likely that sensor on the dash.
